    Hi people
    The joystick on my psp functions when i turn it left and right but the up direction is stuck even though its not pointing up e.g. when i play medal of honour the character just keeps moving forward regardless of what i do to the joystick
    What do i do to fix this? Can it be fixed?
    Thanks and please reply

    ok wen you took the faceplate off, take the rubber thing out and look where it was. see if the wire or black tap from the speaker is visable. or anyting for that matter. the rubber thing wants to be sitting flat on the board under it.
    otherwise, i say new analog stick.

    Strangely, I'm having the same problem for a different reason...I think...the little rubber gasket with the metal "threads" is missing a chunk off of it (don't ask...it's a long story) and ever since, the joystick doesn't track right. Anyone know where I can buy a new one? I've checked Ebay but to no avail.

    mate that aint a different reason, i have that too, a little bit is missing from the top.
    But i thought that would'nt matter as its not missing from the brown inside connector things, am i wrong or do i need a new one?
