    Hi I bought a psp 2000 recently to replace my broken psp 3000

    But I want to do something about it. So my analog stick broke and I bought a replacement one but when trying to replace it, I open the small little latch that secures the ribbon. But trying to open it, the black piece snapped off and now I can't tighten the ribbon as the piece of plastic broke off. Now I understand that if I hold the ribbon down on the connector it will work but that's only my finger.

    Is there a way of making the ribbon stay on the connector and tight so that I can use it again.

    I hate to see my psp 3000 being useless as I just replaced its screen and is still working perfectly on all other aspects

    You need a replacement Analog Nub. You can get them at Dealextreme or any alternative

    Are the non-Sony replacement analog sticks you can get there any good? I've been considering replacing mine since my friend dropped my PSP and it is no longer centered and it jumps about.

    I think you should find a comfy box, and let your broken friend rest in peace.
    Or take it to a sony repair store, which ever floats your boat.

    Unless you feel like de-soldering and resoldering a connector there's really bugger all you can do (if you can even find the connector)
    You could try to find a Spares+Repairs PSP 3000 and replace its broken parts with those in your PSP

    I think your question has been answered a thousand times over. Solder the connector, or gutswap from another PSP.
