Taking apart PSP

My analog joystick is having the problem of moving all over the place when it feels like it, and I read the solutions for this problem, but I don't exactly know how to correctly take off the faceplate, or whatever you have to do to fix the analog stick. I almost now for sure that its not a computer glitch because it does it in games, and the internet, also sometimes it'll move down by itself, then a few minutes later it moves up by itself, can someone help me take my psp apart without blowing it up... and fixing my problem?? I WANNA BEAT FORCE UNLEASHED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How to Replace Analog Joystick on PSP-2001


If your PSP's joystick won't go in a certain direction -- or characters walk by themselves, this part needs to be replaced. It is sold at the website all the way at the bottom for $16.95 and they can do this repair job for $18 more! However, it's not very difficult. Here are the steps:

Step 1. Open PSP. There are 2 screws on the top of the PSP.

Step 2. There are 4 screws behind the PSP and one on the bottom, as circled in the picture.

Step 3. Remove the faceplate and locate the PSP 2001 Analog Assembly. It is held into the console by 1 black screw, as circled in the picture.

Step 4. Remove the black screw and pry the joystick out of the PSP as shown below.

Step 5. It is important that you remove this clear silicon piece from the old joystick and install it into the new one. Its purpose is to communicate the movement of the joystick from the assembly to the motherboard. It sits between the assembly and the motherboard.

Step 6. After you transfer the piece, pry the motherboard slightly up as you slide the new assembly back in place as pictured.

Step 7. You will need to pry this piece up to slide the assembly into place so that it is seated. Replace the black screw and close it back up.

I opened up my sony psp to replace the screen and I think I forgot to put the tape over the motherboard back on so my charcter is moving all over because of the analog. Can I use electrical tape instead?


No, that's not it. There's no tape missing.

You may be missing the following piece:

It's a small clear piece that sits on the metal frame that holds the LCD in place. It send communication between the analog joystick and the motherboard. Without this piece, the joystick will seem to stick in one direction. Once you replace this piece you will be fine.

PSP joystick won´t work


It should work fine without it. Make sure you keep that little clear rubber part safe. It's what fills the gap between the analog stick and the motherboard on the PSP

The analog controller is not moving smoothly


As you have indicated the analog controller is faulty a known issue with PSPs. It is located below the D-Pad. You will have to replace it. Shouldn't be too hard if you have some knowledge of elcectronics. Its a pretty inexpensive repair if you do it yourself and should cost you around 35-50$(Depending on the quality). My advise is to go for good quality parts as they are more reliable than junk chinese stuff.

Psp moving by itself


Hey, looks like your PSP may have one of these two problems. There are 2 screws on the backside of the PSP System on the side of the analog stick. If either of the screw is loose then the analog stick will move by itself.
Second problem is the Analog Stick itself has been damaged. You can replace these very easily if you are good with tools and electronics.
