    My PSP has recently suffered from a stuck circle button problem, and the only way I can think of to resolve is to open up the psp. However, I don't know what screwdriver to use, and I don't have any idea on how to disassemle it safely without destorying.

    I would welcome some help and guidance on how to approach this.

    Thanks in advance

    Well I found a youtube video on how to disassemble the psp, which was fine. The problem I'm faced with is that even with the right size screwdriver, I cannot unscrew any of the screws except the one at the bottom of the PSP. The others seem fairly well secured, and I don't want to strip the screws.

    do i just keep trying or will taking off the bottom screw help remove the others at all?
