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

SOURCE: my psp joystick is broken. it is stuck down. when

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.

I have 2 psp slims with broken joysticks


Find the model number underneath the battery. You can get replacement joystick depending on the model on ebay. Then follow a disassembly guide, this one is good http://www.llamma.com/PSP/repair/complete_psp_disassembly.htm, and while being VERY careful with the screen (they crack very easily) you can remove the bits you need to and put a new joystick in.

EVERY GAME WE PUT IN THE PSP THE PLAYER MOVES DOWN WITHOUT US PUSHING ANY BUTTON I PUT THE GAME ON DEFAULT BUT THAT IS NOTHING FIXING THE GAME HOW CAN I FIX IT


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.

PSP joystick won´t work


It should work fine without it. Make sure you keep that little clear rubber part safe. It's what fills the gap between the analog stick and the motherboard on the PSP
