    Is there a place online where I can get a replacement for the analog stick for my PSP? I have the PSP slim. The newer one. There was a few times where it would stop working on me even if I dont touch the thumbpad, the character in the game would still move, especially playing MOH Heroes. I went to a place locally so they can replace it and they charge $25 but this is my 2nd time replacing it and it's getting very costly. Plus, all he does is take it off of a broken or busted PSP in the back. I tried searching online but only can find the analog sticks for the 1st version of PSP. Can anyone tell me if I can buy replacement analog sticks for the PSP slim online? Thanks.

    Thanks very much. Is it easy to do it yourself with the screwdriver they give you?

    I don't know if the screwdrivers are good, since I worked with my own precision screwdriver-set when I replaced the analognubs. But I think they'll do for that job =D

    But since it was easy to do with my set too, I think that it shouldnt be more difficult with those screwdrivers. :q

    Ok cool. Thanks a lot.

    Also, if I get 3 or 4 and 2 don't work, will I be able to return it to them and they send me another one?

    They state that you are allowed to return non-functioning products, but you have to pay the shipping costs.

    And that's probably a lot.
