My psp L trigger doesn't work... and when i press it again and again it will work.. and then the other it won't work again.. is it a dust problem inside of it or what...thanks

It could be dust problem..if the warranty is over you can dismantle the console and try dusting the interiors with a silk brush...dont use water for cleaning,,,if this doesnt helps you can try replacing the rubber bush below the sure to get an appropriate one..(please dismantle only if you feel confident enough or else seek the help of expert friends..or an electric service shop will do that for you for nominal cost..

Psp start button not workin home menu not either

try dismantling your psp and see the inside of it, you said you cleaned the buttons. try to see if the chips inside the psp are sort of dirty and stuff, the access points in wear the buttons touch, if this still doesn't work, just go to a original SONY STORE.

first, JUST TRY to dismantle it by yourself, try to see whats wrong in the inside, it may be just a faulty lever or something that leads to the switch of the lock button. if you can't dismantle cause you care for it so much, take it to a sony repair store. they''ll know what to do. oh and if you are successful in dismantling it. try to see if there's any abnormalities inside an on the switches and stuff.
