    Hello!!
    Yeasterday I had an amazing ideia: buy all parts necessary to build a PSP 2000 on ebay and build one at home =D
    But to do that, I need a complete list of all components and parts to build a PSP 2000.
    I would like to know if some of you guys have a list of all parts: flat cables, circuits, boards, etc.
    I'll make a video and a tutorial teaching how to build a PSP in my blog, and i'll give credits to everyone who helps me =D
    Thanks a lot!

    wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a complete one then simply dis-assemble and document the re-assembly?

    a person would have to be on crack to want to spend 200 buying individual parts on ebay, and then trying to put them together... when you could get one for more like 100-120...

    though i do like the list of parts you compiled =)

    You will need silicon button pads like these. But looking at the faceplate link you provided, the second picture seems to show the pads so it might come with them. The faceplate might not have the ones for the L an R buttons though.

    I would go with a TA-085 motherboard if you can find one. If you do decide to get the TA-088, make sure it is not version 3 if you want to put custom firmware on it later.

    And try to find original psp 2000 parts and not 3rd party parts if you can.

    If you really do that. Try buying a TA-085v1 or v2 mobo, since they are fully hackable.

    what do you plan to do to keep all these parts together in the housing DUCT TAPE?! GLUE!? MIND CONTROL!?

    your forgetting a VITAL PART the chassis to screw and connect everything too like the PCB's and UMD etc they don't just all clip together!!!!!!


    [​IMG]

    note pic above is for the 1000 series but they are almost the same and both need a chassis for the parts!

    where will you plug your power chord into wait you also need one of these

    [​IMG]


    oh and maby one of these too

    [​IMG]

    oh and probably a few other parts too which i cannot be bothered to find images for ..you obviously have never taken a PSP apart in your life nor looked at any guides very closely or you would of seen that you need a chassis to attach everything to it!




    as above a POINTLESS and probably MORE COSTLY exercise than just buying a pre owned good condition one!

    Why go through all the trouble when you can just buy a cheap psp? If it's for the "adventure" I don't think it's worth your time.

    hello everybody!
    I'm glad to see all this replies!
    In my country, taxes are really expensives, and buy a new PSP would cost about $500 buying here and $400 exporting.
    But I already have a PSP, this is just for experiense... i think it'll be fun, and i'll have a new homemade PSP to give to my friend.

    @kobykaan LOL
    Thanks!! I knew i was forgeting something!
    But.. i can't find this itens on ebay.. can you help me with that?
    So, with this 3 parts... i can build a PSP? =D
    Thanks a lot everybody!!!
