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.

How to fix Volume issues in PSP Portable


How to Fix a PSP Volume Button through Software
Check to be sure that your PlayStation Portable's AVLS (Automatic Volume Limiter System) is turned off.
Start your PSP without a game in it. Choose "Settings," then select "Sound Settings." If the AVLS option is "ON," turn it "OFF."
Check to see that your memory stick is inserted properly if the sound still does not work. This often interferes with the volume control. Remove the memory stick and reinsert it.
Perform a hard reset of your PSP if the volume still does not work. To do this, first unplug your PSP and remove any games or memory sticks. Then remove the battery from its cavity on the back. Press and hold any button for five seconds, then reinstall your battery.
Move on to hardware solutions if none of the above options work
How to Fix a PSP Volume Button through Hardware
Remove your PlayStation Portable's battery pack, any games and memory sticks. Unplug it.
Unscrew all five screws that hold the faceplate onto your PSP. The fifth is hard to locate, so find it just below the screen on the bottom edge.
Clean the button heads underneath the volume buttons with a small cloth. You should also clean the Home button nearby as this often interferes with the volume button.
Return the faceplate and screws, and test your PSP.

Psp "R" Button problem


Hi Erikthug22,

You will have to open up your PSP to get to the contacts of the R button.
  1. REmove the battery
  2. Remove 4 screws from battery compartment
  3. Remove 1 screw from front edge under the PSP logo.
  4. Remove 2 screws from back on opposite side of battery.
  5. Lift the faceplate from the edge above the LCD slightly.
  6. Lift the front faceplate edge under the Home/Start button.
  7. You need to be very protective of the little screw hole that is under the PSP logo of the Faceplate..
  8. Do not touch the LCD screen if you can help it. If you do use a lint free cloth and windex glas cleaner to remove fingerprints and lint. Same thing for faceplate window.
  9. REmove the R button
  10. lift the rubber pad/frame behind the R button straight up.
  11. Clean the back of the rubber piece with a Q-tip and Rubbing alcohol.
  12. Clean the contact pad that is behind the rubber pad/frame.
  13. Press the rubber/fram piece back into place carefully.
  14. Put your R button back on.
  15. Be sure your LCD sreen and inside of faceplate window are clean.
  16. Refit the faceplate.
