If the buttons are sticking in, the easiest way to clean them is with a cotton ball or Q-tip and some isopropyl alcohol. Don't pour it directly onto the PSP, but be liberal with it; it dries quickly. Just dip the cotton ball or Q-tip into the alcohol and swab all over the buttons.

My psp screen have dust how its not to have dust

to get the dust off, you will have to open up your PSP and lightly dust off the lcd screen and the top part of the PSP from the inside, with a clean cloth. dust will tend to get into the PSP no matter how much you take care of it. it can go in through the speaker holes, the memorystick slot, or the UMD tray ...

I was cleaning my psp with a glass cleaning liquid,but vry much liquid came out of it,i have dried my psp with drier then it turned on but it's buttons don't work.....what to do???Help me

You will probably need to open up the PSP and carefully clean all the rubber buttons and button PCB inside. Do not attempt this unless you heve done this type of thing before. Liguid that gets into or underneath the rubber membrane will not dry easily with a drier.

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

This occurs sometimes when you get either dust or some other substance built up inside of the system under the button. If you spilled some sort of liquid on it that would definitely cause it.

Either way, you can open the system up and clean off the dust or sticky substance, but I would not recommend doing it yourself unless you are familiar with these devices. It is best to take it to a local computer or gaming console repair shop. I am sure they would not charge you much to fix it. If you feel that you would like to try it yourself then here is a link that will show you step-by-step(with pictures) how to take the system apart.

Psp Problem


You will need:

1 Fairly Small Screw Driver
Something Soft to protect your screen (Optional)
Something sticky to hold your small screws (Optional, but recommended)
Ability to remember where you removed screws from =D

1. Flip your PSP on the front side (screen side).
2. Unscrew the two screws on the outside opposite of the battery.
3. Open the battery panel, and unscrew the screws under the battery.
4. CAREFULLY, take off the faceplate and make sure your L/R buttons are properly secured and clear from dust/dirt.
5. Check the 'Home', 'Start', etc., buttons for anything that may "jam" them.
6. Reassemble your PSP by screwing the screws back into their proper areas.

AGAIN, this will VOID any warranty you have and I AM NOT responsible for any damages to your PSP!!!

You've cleaned the disks but have you cleaned the laser? That'd be the next step before looking @ repair options.
