Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

My psp joystick is broken. it is stuck down. when i play games, the person is always crouching or going down. and the highlighted section in the menu is always going down. I've looked for solutions on how to fix it but all the places i've been to say it is just the joystick piece that's broken but i don't think it is because when i put it in another psp it works fine . can someone please help me with this ?

The PSP of my son just so happen to have same problem as yours. Aside from the joystick, the 4 directional button (Up, Down, Left and Right) also controls the directions (hmmm... as the name implies). I was able to correct this by replacing the worn out FLEX PCB at the back of the directional button found just underneath the PSP casing. The trace of the Down Button on the PCB is already shorted to the ground which causes the signal to be always active even it is not pressed.

Ive got a psp and the move button is sticking it always in the down position


If this is only happening in games, it's a problem with the joystick assembly. It's pretty common on the PSP for this part to wear out and characters [or menu options in games] will start scrolling by themselves. Replacing the part will fix the PSP up. Check the following website out -- they sell the joystick and perform replacement repairs:

recalibrate your joystick go to system settings and to the system info, there, move the joystick around all 4 directions and then exit the screen, if the problem persists, open the PSP and clean & screw your joystick

PSP joystick won´t work


It should work fine without it. Make sure you keep that little clear rubber part safe. It's what fills the gap between the analog stick and the motherboard on the PSP

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.

My analog stick is stuck in the upwards direction. Every time I play a game, the character in the game always moves up and in the game menus, the highlighted option always keeps moving up. I really don't...


Sony is full of it. Yes you can repair it. All you need is a brand new nub (joystick). You can find it on the net for about $5 less shipping depending on your model it is not hard to replace. On a phat (old school psp there are seven screws holding the faceplate. Once the faceplate is off there are two screws holding the nub in place. The slim is almost the same there is seven screws holding the faceplate but the only difference is the last two screws you have to take off is on the top. And once the faceplate is off it's the same two screws holding the nub in place. Replace and screw back in.
