I am having problems with the joystick on my PSP slim.
I had this problem with the first PSP slim I bought and I returned it for another and here about 2 months later, same problem.
It feels like it is grinding against the plastic on the inside and makes kind of a "halting, stuttery" movements when you try to use itwhich can be quite irritating, especially when playing games like "wipeout pure" as you cannot properly control your vehicle.
Is there some way it can be lubricated, like with powdered carbon graphite or something?
Or maybe taken out and modified?
Thanks in advance for any advice offered! :)
You have to replace the joystick. do not use graphite as it will conduct accross the track. You need a thin philips srewdriver to remove 5 srews one under the label that says do not remove label in battery compartment.once all srews are removed cover pops out and its very easy to replace unit. Look on ebay for replacement joystick for SLIM MODEL PSP.

I have the exact same problem, this glitch as I came to call it happens to me often, I found it that after opening a PSP and closing it back up it fixes the problem, although like I said the glitch comes back after a while. I call this a glitch because I repair people's PSP's and found that their PSP's have the same problem.
