I bought a new psp analog stick and when i installed it, it doesn't work
My psp has the same issue, except i have the psp phat 1001. I got a new joystick and now it seems to lean towards the left and down a bit. I hear that you have to just play it for it to fix itself, but im just looking for confirmation on the subject.

Analog sticks do wear out over time, unless your psp is under a year old, you can either send it to sony for 90 fix or fix it yourself through purchasing a new one from amazon. If it is under a year old then it could get repaired for free but only if you can support the fact that it was a faulty analog stick and not an accident.
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
Sticking on an analog stick is a very common thing on a PSP. If you have bought it within a year and haven't tampered with it, send it back to Sony. They will fix it free of charge. If it's outside of the 1 year warranty, you could always open the system and clean it out yourself. But I don't recommend this unless your warranty is up. Let me know if you need more information on doing it yourself.
