There is a pad underneath the L Trigger that makes contact with the receiver for the button. The pad is either stuck to the receiver or the lemonade is causing a false contact. You can take it apart to clean it, once you remove the shell, you can remove and clean both triggers. Here is a link:

My arrow keys aren't working, only the FN function even when not being pressed

Either you have a stuck key, or your keyboard is shorted maybe due to liquid being spilled into it. Lightly tap the affected keys to unstuck it, or put the laptop in a well-ventilated area if liquid was spilled to let it dry.

You need to open up your PSP (But it will void the warranty!) remove the circle button and then make sure there is no dirt under it, then replace it back. It is not that hard to open a PSP, you can find many videos on how to do it.

Automaticaly "home"

Your "HOME" button is stuck down, probably on the strip underneath the actual home button.

You can find the part you need at the following website. It's important to know if you have a PSP-1001, PSP-2001, or PSP-3001 before you buy it since they all use different parts. To find out your model number, check the white barcode on the bottom of the PSP. The last 7 digits is the model number:

When i press the home button oy psp, i cant use the directional bons to click yes so that i may quit the game i'm playing. and sometimes the "o" button seems to be pressed while i'm...

The problem, as you describe, is exactly that! One of your buttons is stuck down in the pressed position. If you press Home and the screen comes up asking you if you want to quit and a button is already pressed down, you will not be able to press X to confirm yes or no.

You didn't specify which PSP you have, 1001, 2001, or 3001, but the following website sells the part you need to fix this issue. They also perform repairs if you're not comfortable doing it yourself. It's a pretty cheap and straightforward part to replace:

Spilled liquid on PSP

Try putting it in a bag of rice for a day or so, because rice absorbs moisture, so it might draw out any water still inside. Hope this helps.

Hi Stevenper,


Something has gotten the X button dirty even with not getting something spilled on it.  The PSP case needs to be opened and that is best left to someone with experience in the PSP.  I have torn apart and repaired about 10 PSP consoles in the last month.  I can repair your PSP for you for $28 including return shipping.  My Email is Repairtech@  I run the Playstation Clinic at
