Dammit aceloop! I had mine opened up over the weekend. :mad:

I've attached two pics with the necessary screws to remove to disassemble the PSP's plastic shell. Once inside, everything is pretty straightforward. Keep in mind though that the LCD screen is held in place by a metal bracket and not screws.

Note: the bottom-left screw is behind the warranty sticker.

As for parts, the only place to get parts at a reasonable price is ebay or an irresponsible friend who always breaks their new toys. (as in buy their broken unit)

A hammer can always fix your consoles :p

now serious.... the PSP is tricky to disassambly so becarefull with the small flat cables as they break easily and you will be in trouble. one of the most parts you should care about(other than the flat cables) is the screen itself as it has some clips on the sides and you have to unclip them carefully. if you need pics or tutorials how to do it i think google/youtube can help you with that ;)

while reparing lots of PSP´s myself i´ve never got any problems even the first time i did it but i know that you should be really carefull or else you could f*@% up things quickly with a wrong move.. so whatever you do... do it carefully and by no means use force.

do any of you know if its possible to reseat or replace the analog stick once the shell is off? it keeps getting stuck in a certain position every now and then on mine and its difficult to play most of my games because of this.

yes its possible but you have to disassembly everything and repositionate the analog stick or replace it with another one... in your case i think it must be dirty or probably it get some pressure from another part maybe. i could do that in few minutes but sadly you´re far away from me :(

light movements/pressure seem to work fine but if i apply a little more pressure in a certain direction, usually up, it will make this faint popping sound and then the stick will remain where it is rather than resetting back to it's default position.

i can move it around a bit and get it to "unpop" or whatever after a few tries but it is rather tedious to do this, considering how often it happens.

ill probably just send it to sony and have them repair it in whatever way is needed, i dont want to screw it up anymore than it is already. thanks for the input though.
