    I have a fat PSP and I put a new faceplate on about a year ago and the thumbstick does its own thing completely and I can't control it for anything. I've had this problem since then but I haven't bothered to try and fix it.

    I can't take any pictures since I gave it to my girlfriend to use as an mp3 player but I want to surprise her and fix it.

    I've talked to one or two people and they told me it was because of a little cubic rubber thing with copper strips inside that carried the signal from the thumb nub to the board. I was told I had to readjust it or turn it around, something like that, or to get a new nub from a broken psp and try that out, but none of it works. Do I need a new one of the rubber thing?

    EDIT: Thanks for the suggestions, I'm going to take it apart and try those out once I get the PSP back tonight. I hope all goes well.

    EDIT 12/8: I took the faceplate off and made sure the rubber connector was in correctly and that the clips on the joystick were bent correctly but it still does its own thing, I test it in the web browser, the only difference is now it moves quickly when before it moved rather slowly, and now when I move the stick left the cursor moves to the right VERY slowly.

    TRY THIS FIRST IF ALL ELSE FAILS CONTINUE TO TUTORIAL
    JOYSEN RECALIBRATE JOYSTICK http://www.consolespot.net/821-RELEASE-JoySen-142b.html
    CALIBRATE http://boardsus.playstation.com/play...ead.id=3147030


    give these suggestions a try and we will go from there

    Well i would fist make sure that the rubber connector is seated properly
    "clear side up" you will know what i am talking about when you adjust it

    1. also if the rubber connector appears to be in good shape no need to replace

    2.make sure you tighten the screw tight but don't over tighten

    3 .make sure that faceplate is seated correctly especially on the joystick side

    4. check that when you transferred the joystick from the old to the new faceplate it is
    seated correctly in the housing of the faceplate


    5.on the bottom of the joystick you will 2 prongs if they are flat very gently pull them out a little becareful no to break them you want them bent out just enough to make contact with the metal plate that seats below joy stick where rubber connector is

    fat or slim info below is for fat although breakdown should work for a slim not sure if slim buy new joystick and replace or give below a try

    1. have you opened your psp or removed face plate
    2. if so see if you have lost the rubber joystick connector located at base see photo
    3. buy new joystick and replace
    4 if you have lost rubber connector look here your may be clear but this is the same one
    this is for

    fat http://www.psxboy.com/797_Conductive...-Joystick.html
    slim http://www.psxboy.com/832_PSP2000-jo...placement.html



    heres a old tutorial check it out might help

    check to make sure rubber connector at base of joystick is in correct

    make sure that the lcd bracket is sitting flush with mobo
    also while the game is started and character is moving loosen back screws on the joy stick side and see if it stops.
    last but not list give this a look see.

    does you joystick work sometimes and sometimes not or moves on its on if so check this out


    i have just finished repairing a psp with this problem (can control sometimes , sometimes cant ,menu options skip on there own ) before you pay 40+ dollars to have someone fix it why try your self this has worked remove screws from faceplate opening psp will void your warranty just had to say it so if you have one use it

    once ypu have removed faceplate flip ove to joystick side


    now at the bottom of the joystick are 2 metal clips see picture these have to make good contact to the metal plate inwhich joystick sits on see photo READ WARNING if it does not can cause you not to beable to move or movement on its own these contacts get flat from downforce put on joystick

    at this time if you choose to change joy stick just remove the 2 screws to joystick and replace
    now check and see if the clips shown in diagram above are flat or missing if missing need a new joystick if flat follow directions BE VERY CAREFUL THESE CLIP WILL BREAK IF TO MUCH FORCE IS USED IF THESE CONTACTS APPEAR WEAK YOU MAY JUST WANT TO GET A NEW JOYSTICK if not continue take a knife and gently lift the clips use judgement on how much remember we want to make good contact and also not have to open psp again now once you have finished replace faceplateand only put the 2 screws on the joystick side in this way we can test and see if repairs are good or if we need to pull clips out more and thats it let me know if this helped you

    or if you wanna take joystick apart to check it out while waiting on a new one here

    go to ebay 9.00 plus ship install yourself if you want to take it apart while you wait on it remove the metal clip at base and also included photo's how to put back together but much easier to buy a new one just posted this in case you are bored and wanna give it a try check for chipped or broken piece's

    here's what it looks like when you take it apart

    correct order when putting back together is E to F / D to E / C to D / B to C / A to B

    I bought my slim around 8 months ago. Its on CFW 5.00 m33-3. There are many scratches on the UMD tray and Battery cover and also the circle which encloses the PSP logo. Is there any way to remove these scratches.

    Also due to the continuous usage of the analog nub there seems to be an circular impression on the surface of my PSP. But the analog nub never touches the surface even when it is pushed up completely. I tried wiping the impression but it just remains. Any ides over here??

    Does the analog nub or any of the PSP buttons become spoilt due to excessive usage??

    To remove scratches i am sure there is some product out there that will claim to remove scratches , but to be honest if you are concerned with them now i dont think you would be satisfied with them you want the new look you have to get it new you can

    if you decide to buy replacement parts try and buy from a seller that may have the battery cover and umd cover with combined shipping this way you arent dealing with 2 different sellers and normally if they are selling psp parts they should have a selection of other parts to

    1.get a battery cover and umd cover from ebay or psp parts site and replace them "buy new " also can get a new faceplate and replace

    check here
    battery covers
    http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trk...All-Categories

    umd cover http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trk...+psp+umd+cover

    2. buy a slim psp cover there are many nice ones out there that completely encase psp and still allow you to enjoy your system

    chick these out
    check here http://nuritech.us/sony-psp-sf-coati...skin-case.html
    leather black http://www.petrastechshop.com/jopspskcalbl.html

    Varies with usage and individual excessive usage wears down just about everything
    Does the analog nub or any of the PSP buttons become spoilt due to excessive usage

    I have not purchased any items from sellers i have posted i am simply given you examples of where to go and what options you have use your own judgement on what sellers you want to purchase from

    Default PSP not charging (what could be broken)

    I tried charging my psp using usb blackthorn usb cable with a two connection capability usb charge and like a regular AC charge and it did not work, i found the problem why it did not charge because the internal connection of the USB port to the mother board was not connected properly. This also broke my optical mouse when i connected it to the mis-configured usb port on my computer.

    I accidentally reversed the connection on the motherboard of the computer, the correct connection was (+5v) (-data) (+data) and (grnd) pin but i connected it (grnd) (+data) (-data) and (+5v). This probably caused some sort of problem in charging section of the PSP unit. I can still use the battery if i charge it using a external battery charger then plug it to the unit, the usb data transfer/detection still works but no charge even if the usb charging is ON, connecting the AC supply w/o battery still works and with battery still works but does not charge.

    The PSP model i have is 2006 shown at the battery area with firmware 3.90 m33-2 PSP slim

    Long story short, i reversed the polarity and caused something inside the unit to stop working.

    Any ideas would be appiciated. thanks

    It is possible a fuse has be blown i could see having one in place to protect such a situation
    as which was cased by the connection mix up .

    cory149 is the author of these photos I give created to him I have only search for a solution for your problem to assist you in repairs as stated obvious a fuse has been blown which is to protect mobo please view photo's as a guide line unsure of which model slim this one is

    here is corys home page http://nds.cmamod.com/ i do not know him but you could try contacting him for more info i will continue to research the fuse location and i suggest you can too so we can identify the one that needs to be bridge for future reference

    can get a digital multi meter and test fuses
    or use meter to check for continuity

    Exclamation Analog Stick Trouble

    I have replaced my analog stick 3 times and I am still having the same problem. It constantly drifts in one direction all by itself, but only during games - it doesn't do it on the Home screen. I have also cleaned the contacts and nothing seems to help. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Exclamation Analog Stick still not working

    The rubber connector is in place and secure, the metal clips on the bottom of the analog stick are not flattened, I loosed the screws and it still didn't work. I pulled the screws all the way out and still didn't work! Any other ideas? Thanks again...

    You may want to try and replace the rubber connector as i cant see 3 different joy stick being faulty 'these are new joysticks you have used to replace correct' if you are getting movement the connection between base of joystick which connects to rubber connector which connects to mobo

    does it do this with the face plate removed and in a game ?

    not sure if this will help but i believe there is a program that you can run to calibrate
    the analog stick
