Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

I Have PSP 1001 model

I droped it today and now the door won't shut properly with a game in it and when the game is in the door I can get it shut but it won't read the disc.The only way I can get it to read the disc is to slide the disc between the door and the psp then it will read it if you hold the disc to the psp or hold the psp up in the air.I was wondering if i could just cut the disc holder off the door and use the door to hold the game in so i could still play my games on it? Either way if it works i won't have to buy a new one if it don't work i still have to buy a new one because i can't get the door to line back up so it will shut properly.

    Yeah it might be cheaper to get it fixed at a repair shop but it's one of the first ones they made which won't plug into the tv like the new psp2000 and psp slim so if i can't fix it then i would rather buy a new one that has more options and accessories.But anyway thanks for trying.

    Ok so this one is still good but the door is broke off but the battary connection,screen,disc reader and everything still works I just can't play the games cuz I don't have a door it snaped off when I was trying to get it lined back up.My friend john gave me his psp same model and everything but his screen has dots in the center and his battary connection doesn't work cuz it's broke off. So the only way you can play it is with it being pluged in so I need to know how to take his casing and put my parts into his does anyone know how to do this?

Sucks, I know... But cutting the disc holder sounds all wrong my friend; taking it into a repair center would be cheaper than buying a new one. I know others that Mod their broken PSP and add things like a Hard Drive to it; that's all at your own risk. Moreover, most still go out and buy another PSP that hasn't been modified.

After starting a game, not able to control the game. Forward joystick doesn't respond and game gets stuck? It is happening with all the games.

It is more than likely a problem with the Analog Joystick Assembly. This is a pretty common part to wear out in the PSPs, especially the earlier models. The following website sells them joystick assemblies for $14.95 for the 1001 PSP and a little more for the newer models. You can find the model number of your PSP on a label inside the back of the PSP if you remove the battery.
