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.

The analog controller is not moving smoothly

As you have indicated the analog controller is faulty a known issue with PSPs. It is located below the D-Pad. You will have to replace it. Shouldn't be too hard if you have some knowledge of elcectronics. Its a pretty inexpensive repair if you do it yourself and should cost you around 35-50$(Depending on the quality). My advise is to go for good quality parts as they are more reliable than junk chinese stuff.

Psp analog joystick

thats what happens when you lose the silicone pad with copper connections inside.

another posibility is that you didnt tie the screws hard enough. thatr worked for me.

if you dont tie the hard enough the analog goes to the upper left hand corner. and in the game, the player might walk around in circles, lol

Psp analog stick

If I'm understanding the directions correctly, all you need to do is pull up on the analog cap. It snaps back on so don't be afraid when it comes off. If you lose the cap, i believe they sell replacements for it separately in most Best Buys, Circuit City, etc. They cost like 5 dollars for 3 or something....

After you pull off the cap there should be kind of a small stubby joystick.

Good Luck!
