You just remove the face plate again and check it now your PSP is working OK if so there is some misalignment while placing the face plate on PSP and suppose your fault still remains same without face plate also then there is a possibility of Analogue button is being damaged which should be changed.

My scroll in my psp is broken

if im not mistaken you are talking about a problem with the directional buttons. if it is that, here's the solution for that. you have to take apart your PSP, you will see where the directional buttons go. you will have to open up the little strip that is underneath the buttons. you don't need to open up the strip completely. get a Q-tip , get it damp with some alcohol, rub the bottom contacts and the upper. after rubbing it with the tip that has the alcohol, you will rub it with the other side of the Q-tip that is dry. after all this is done, you can put strips back together. they don't have to glued back together. put your PSP back together and it should work. see picazzkikronu.jpg

PSP joystick problem.

These are some of the steps you can do

1. Use the screwdriver to detach the face plate from the bottom of your PSP. You'll need to remove the battery pack. There are additional screws underneath the battery pack that need to come out to take off the face plate.
2. Look on the bottom side of your face plate. You will find four small bronze-colored rectangles lined up together. Take your damp cloth and wipe over this section. Wait 30 seconds, then wipe it off with a dry cloth. It is important that your cloth is just damp and no water is leaking from it.
3. Remove the plastic piece that covers the small bronze squares on the right side of the analog stick. Clean these with a damp cloth.
4. Put your PSP back together the same way you took it apart. Don't forget to screw the battery pack screws into place, or you will experience other problems down the road.

Anolog psp

You can get it fixed pretty cheap on can do it to but you would need to buy a new one. Remember this will avoid your warranty though.Take out all the screws there is four where the battery is.There is two you can see and the other two are toward the bottom where the battery is behind the warranty sticker.Take those out and you can take of the front of the psp.On the psp face plate the part you just took off the analog is screwed on it.Unscrew it and replace it with the new one.If you don't know what your doing have someone fix it for you.

360 wont turn on

The disk tray button on the unit is probably being pushed in from the outer cover. When you took it apart and put it together you may have pinched the button in. Very carefully inspect the disk tray button area. The button needs its full range of motion. The faceplate is pushing the button in and that is why it works without it. Or the face plate is making the top cover to press in on the button. Go over the area and watch what the pieces are doing when you assemble the front in regards to the tray button. I had the same problem. Remember these pieces are plastic and after being run (heat) the plastic may want to warp a little since new.
