I was recently plugging in my PSP to my computer and I accidentally let the USB cord whack it right on the screen. The resulting dent is really shallow and very hard to see, but it distorts the color over that specific space (it almost looks like a dead pixel, but it's only bad over bright colors). I tried using toothpaste, but that didn't work. Any tips?

Well if the scratch is shallow, you'd want to use any sort of abrasive that's not alcohol-based or, uh, "clumpy"? I have a PSP too, and my screen had a shallow scratch because my Open button got stuck because of jelly and I used a cuticle cutter to clean the jelly out. Lo and behold, I don't specialize in precision and I scratched the top of it. I used toothpaste (Colgate Whitening) with a q-tip, and dryly wiped it off. I just looked for some other ways of fixing it, and supposedly there's mixed results for the toothpaste, vaseline and ...bananas?

I'm not sure what would work for a PSP screen, but I gotta tell you...  Home remedies for fixing CDs don't work.  I have been told that peanut butter, toothpaste, bananas, hand lotion, and lots more items can fix a scratch...

I really wouldn't recommend rubbing random things on your screen though.  Odds are you'll have a PSP that ends up smelling like a peanut butter, toothpaste, and banana sandwich.  ...And that still has a nick in the screen.  :P
