    If you warranty expired, you can take off the face plate and see if it's on the clear part of the faceplate that covers the screen.

    There are six or seven screws around the psp and under the battery. One is beneath the waranty sticker. Just take all the screws out, the face plate comes right off.

    Here's a guide. You probably only need to look at the first step:
