    SOME TIMES PEOPLE BLAME THE ANALOG STICK FOR THE LOSSES, BUT USUALLY ITS NOT THE ANALOG STICK FAULT! IT USUALLY THE CHEAP PSP INTERNAL HARDWARE. SO IM HERE TO SHOW YOU HOW TO FIX IT. FOR EXPERIENCE USERS ONLY!!!


    ~~1ST~~
    *TAKE THE PSP APART!!!

    [​IMG]


    ~~2ND~~
    *FOCUS ON THIS SPOT AND REMOVE THE CLEAR SMALL BLOCK.. !!!BE CAREFUL!!!
    [​IMG]

    ~~3RD~~
    *IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS>>> NOW CLEAN THAT CLEAR RUBBER OFF BECAUSE IT MAY BE DIRTY AND WORN OUT. YOU WILL NOTICE IF YOU LOOK CLOSELY AT THE CLEAR BLOCK IT IS WORN OUT A BIT. NOW PLACE THE BLOCK BACK IN. MAY SURE THE WHERE THE WORN OUT PRONGS WERE IS PUT IN THE OPPOSITE WAY.

    *** NOTE TO USERS...

    IF YOU DO THE 3RD STEP WRONG YOUR ANALOG STICK WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY. JUST KEEP RETRYING THIS STEP. IF YOU DID IT RIGHT YOU STICK SHOULD WORK LIKE YOU JUST BOUGHT A NEW PSP.

    Thanks a lot for this. I was always puzzled at what exactly was causing my analog to react differently ever since I changed my faceplate.

    I have a question.

    When I bought my third joystick (yes, third -second replacement joystick) it worked perfectly, not a thing wrong with it. But recently after I slide the joystick in a certain direction, it'll slowly keep moving in that direction, even after the stick itself has returned to its resting position. Will doing what you said to do in this little tutorial help me any? It's a black phat PSP with a white joystick btw.

    Speaking of fixing joysticks, do you happen to have a guide in re-attaching the joystick back into place? (I don't mean the cap, I mean the whole stick >.< ). My lil cousin broke his joystick while playing Monster Hunter but we can't figure out how to place it back in. I took it apart and even removed the little analog chip under the face plate to get a better view of the inside part where the analog stick should be attached but we couldn't see a problem.

    There are two screws that you must put back on when you replace a joystick, if for some reason the little plastic things that go between the screw and the faceplate have broken off, it's time to buy a new stick.

    Wow, I never knew that the PSP supposedly had a bad analog, but I'll be passing this on to my friend who has a PSP.

    I've no idea how old my psp is, got it free when it had a lot wrong with it (had to replace the screen, joystick, and power board, still have a few minor cosmetic replacements to do).

    I have to say thank you for the info on joysens, setting my sensitivity to 160% fixed the problem I was having. (tried it first as I really didn't wanna take my faceplate off (been sore from working))

    thats bascially all I know how to do is remove the faceplate and buttons d:
    everything else I dont mess with

    also the most annoying part
    dust just seems to come out of nowhere and go on the inside of the faceplate onto the LCD
    after you just closed it and screwed to togther...

    i can no longer open up my psp anymore cause the screws are messed up. anyways that prx, can it disable the analog stick in any way? cause a lot of my games i play the analog does the same thing as the d-pad. my analog stick goes craazy. i go to web browser and it will move in random circle motion on its own lol.
