    I'm not sure how easy it is to fix but you can buy replacement buttons for cheap on www.dealextreme.com

    Ouch! good luck with that! You'll probably have to get a new one. My dog got hold of mine once and it was never the same!

    Most likely the contact pads have gone under your D-Pad. Simple enough to fix.

    it isnt that difficult to open, theres a couple of screws on the back, one in the battery compartment under the pretty VOID sticker, and the one on the bottom.hardest part is making sure you keep dust form getting onto the screen.

    there will be guides on how to open up the various models - guides in replacing such parts. if you require the parts then dx is a good place to hunt.

    is there a guide here about opening up psp - i haven't seen one?

    There are a few screws on the back of a PSP, 2 on the right and 2 under the battery. Removing those will allow the faceplate to be removed which is all that is needed to replace buttons/faceplate. Going into the rest of PSP disassembly gets complicated (I'd like a nice shell for mine but can't be bothered with the crazy amount of disassembly needed)
