Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
If you aren't really tech savvy with taking apart delicate electronics, i would suggest either going to the Sony playstation website, and putting in a repair request: they will send a box in the mail for you to ship your PSP to them, and they will repair it for a fee and send it back. Turnaround time varies based on your location and how busy they are, but its possible to get back your PSP in under a week from the day you ship it out.
Alternatively, you may be able to find a local repair shop nearby, which may be able to fix it, possibly, cheaper or quicker than Sony. This all of course depends on how close and well supplied and experienced they are.
Last option: If you are skilled with taking delicate electronics apart, you can order a replacement PSP thumbstick off of an internet retailer. Just search google for "PSP (which version it is, ex: 3000) thumbstick" and buy your replacement. Detailed Tutorials (with tons of pictures or videos) are readily available on opening up the PSP and replacing the thumbstick.

SOURCE: psp analog joystick
thats what happens when you lose the silicone pad with copper connections inside.
another posibility is that you didnt tie the screws hard enough. thatr worked for me.
if you dont tie the hard enough the analog goes to the upper left hand corner. and in the game, the player might walk around in circles, lol

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.
