About a couple weeks ago my psp analog stick stated acting up. It just moves up and down and all over the place without me even touching it. And when i do move it around phisically the actual stick moves around clockwise or counter clockwise, not staying in place. Im pretty sure that something is unalined. Has anyone else been having this problem? Do i just need to send in it for repair?

Analog sticks on the PSP do wear out depending on how heavily you use it, if its been more than a year since purchasing it, then you could buy a psp 2000 joystick from amazon and unscrew the faceplate and unscrew the current analog stick and then replace it.
as a sony certified technician, i can tell you that these types of problems are caused be what we call a "false Contact". When the psp's analog stick does not touch the motherboard component, the analog stick auto scrolls down. If it auto scolls up then is just dirt biuld up. But if it scrolls down, make sure the screws on the back of the psp are FULLY tightened so that way the analog sticks makes contact with the motherboard. I fix psp's for fun so if you have a question that need to be answered right away, please just call my cell phone Number (773) 351-2426 (USA, ILLINOIS NUMBER) hope that works
