Alright, if your top is broken then it would have corrected itself already. So it's probably not just the top of your joystick, your entire analog censors are fried as well. This is causing one side of the analog stick to move in one direction. If this is the case then you will need to buy the entire analog stick set. This can be purchased on all main merchandise sites (Amazon, Ebay, etc.) You might also want to contact the head hancho, sony gaming entertainment, for their technical support and self installation. Hope this works for you bro.

The joystick has probably broken internally making the psp think that your pressing in the down direction. This will probably have to be replaced. The joystick can be purchased on ebay for under $5. If you don't feel comfortable opening the unit yourself, your local game store can probably replace it for you or tell you someone local that can. There are many videos on youtube that shows you how to replace the joystick.
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:
Okay This has happen to me and what it is the joystick is off track. I'm not saying you guys are handling your psp roughly but it does happen. You can try to repair the joystick yourself.
But the best bet is to buy a new one. Doesn't cost much and it is not hard to do. I paid $3 for a replacement. Word of advice if you are buying a generic brand you may want to buy at least three of then just in case one or more of them are doa (dead on arrival) you never know. Will save to time in returning and waiting for a replacement.
If you want please ask and I will post a how to for repair of your OEM joystick. This doesn't always work but what the hell it's worth a shot.
If you take the front cover off your psp then the joystick/analogue stick is attached onto it. This can easily be taken apart for cleaning. If once you have done this it is still moving by itself then check the rubber connector that connects the joystick to the psp (in metal bit under joystick) this may be dirty, if so then clean this. If everything seems clean and it still moves by itself then replace the joystick (can be bought from www.consoleparts4u.co.uk) this is an easy task once you have got the front of your psp off.
Hey, looks like your PSP may have one of these two problems. There are 2 screws on the backside of the PSP System on the side of the analog stick. If either of the screw is loose then the analog stick will move by itself. Second problem is the Analog Stick itself has been damaged. You can replace these very easily if you are good with tools and electronics.
