Well psp were built to have its own joystick, other joystick are usually generic versions, so the chances of them being faulty for psp are high

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 scroll is getting stuck


When the scroll is getting stuck, it's usually a problem with the internal Joystick Analog assembly inside of the PSP. This is a pretty common problem with all model PSPs. The following website sells the joystick assembly for all model PSPs and they also do installs for WAY WAY less than Sony:

Broke off


What broke off? The joystick? Or something else?

I will assume it's the joystick since this is the most common thing to break on the PSP. You can find a replacement joystick assembly at the following website for $15, or $35 installed:

After starting a game, not able to control the game. Forward joystick doesn't respond and game gets stuck? It is happening with all the games.


It is more than likely a problem with the Analog Joystick Assembly. This is a pretty common part to wear out in the PSPs, especially the earlier models. The following website sells them joystick assemblies for $14.95 for the 1001 PSP and a little more for the newer models. You can find the model number of your PSP on a label inside the back of the PSP if you remove the battery.

Joystick psp prooblem


That it is probably an hardware fault, the joystick switch stay stuck as you are pointing up.
If it happens again get a replacement joystick.
If you are still under guaranty and that happens again, call them and ask a replacement joypad, tell them you get the problem from time to time.

good luck.

Psp joystick problems


Good day all

I recently ran into this same problem of a PSP joystick "jumping" or hopping around. Since I'm an electronics engineer I was determined to get to the bottom of this annoying problem, I read all the posts on the site and none helped, but the problem turned out to be much easier fixed than I first anticipated.

First of all I assume that you know how to take the PSP apart and take out the joystick module as well. The Joystick module connects to the PSP mainboard by means of 4 contacts, seperated by a spacer conductor that appears like a rectangular rubber, be careful not to lose this during the process.

Here is why the problem occurs, when you have a faulty joystick module, one or more of those 4 contacts don't connect to the main board anymore, so the when the PSP is trying to measure the resistance to determine the joystick position, it reads a varying value, i.e. the contact is floating.

This happens for mainly 2 reasons, dirt or a faulty module, as stated in the previous posts, the contacts could be dirty, but this can usually easy be seen, and this wasn't the problem in my case, I had a faulty module, but luckily all is not lost.

Here's how to fix a faulty module in most cases. Remove the joystick module from the PSP completely, put that little rectangular rubber on the 4 contacts (clear in my case) aside and keep it safe. There is metal clasp on the bottom of the module, you can simply pop it off with a screwdriver, by slightly bending the clasps on the side and taking it off. Now you should be able to see a VERY SIMPLE mini circuit board with tracks on, on the bottom of the module, you can indeed pop this off too. On this you will see tracks where the joystick sliders move. Put the circuit board aside too. Now look at the now completely open joystick module, you will see the two sliders each having a metal part, each of these metal parts has 2 very small contacts that run on the circuit board tracks that you just removed, most times these small contacts get bent inward and they can't make contact with the circuit board tracks anymore. Just bend them slightly outward again, so that when you put circuit board back, they touch the tracks on the board nicely. Put the circuit board back, it just slips back on, put the metal clasp back, put the rubber back in over 4 contacts on the module and voila, if all goes well you will have a nice working joystick module again. Put it back in the PSP and test it to see if it worked. In my case it worked 100% and saved me a few bucks. Hope this helps everyone. Let me know if it worked.
