Re: sparatic joystick action for the psp

Open psp, make sure analog stick is screwed tightly to the fron housing.. look on the lcs tray, right on the left hand side, there is a tiny transparent ruber, with 4 brass? contacts, make sure this is pushed in to the tray/board properly as this connects the analog to main board. alternatively purchase a new rubber bit from ebay, as sometime they go bad.

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

PSP game keeps scrolling

Ok. Its most likely a joystick problem. this happens quite often. you can replace the cap (the movey bit) or you might need a total replacement (or something is loose and you need to get someone to look at it for you)
