I just keep pushing it down rly hard or push it against my desk for a couple secongs then it works normly but dont press it down to hard or u will jam it.
also i want to try taking on the faceplate but i dont have the right screwdriver so wat else could i use as one instead of buying it because i dont have any other screws that small so i would only use it once :(

My psp had fallen of the table, and i had turned the psp on to see if it was okay, i was playing MPO and i found that my R button was pushed in...so i got on here to see for help, and i saw the comment for instructions on how to open the case and clean it out, i was about to do that, but luckly i kept reading, and saw comment number 7...i had done what he said, push the buttom up and down kinda hard, in a pattern, my R buttom worked normally again =D

This solution worked a treat.
Make sure that you are out of warrenty though, as you have to peel a label off in the battery bay that voids your warrenty.
Also, if you are finding sony a pain, just be persistent, and insistent.
When i got my brand new PSP, it had three dead pixels in the middle of the screen. I rang sony who told me that my $300 purchase was not faulty and that they were not responsible. Needless to say i kept pushing the point with the guy on the phone, and demanded to speak to his manager.
I then got the response i wanted and they sent me an email with a bar code which i took to australia post and 1 week later i had a new PSP.
Keep up the good fight and thanks for the help

The rubber is on a small metal frame that is held in place by a black tab. You slide the frame out from the tab and then lift up.

This occurs sometimes when you get either dust or some other substance built up inside of the system under the button. If you spilled some sort of liquid on it that would definitely cause it.
Either way, you can open the system up and clean off the dust or sticky substance, but I would not recommend doing it yourself unless you are familiar with these devices. It is best to take it to a local computer or gaming console repair shop. I am sure they would not charge you much to fix it. If you feel that you would like to try it yourself then here is a link that will show you step-by-step(with pictures) how to take the system apart.
