    Long story short I dropped my PSP everything still works, but the power switch is hard to move and the green LED does not turn on when the PSP is on.

    I am trying to open it, but I can't seem to get any of the screws out except for the one on the bottom center and I think I may be stripping the screws. The others don't seem to turn at all. Has anyone here successfully opened their PSP? Any tips? What size screwdriver should I use?

    Don't refer me to the guide on opening it, it doesn't help much.

    Thanks for the help, I don't have a #00 screwdriver; I was using a #0, anyway I'll be sure to get a #00.

    I find a #0 or #00 bit attached to a real screwdriver works best. The jewelers screwdrivers tear up my fingers and slip. You can also get a small #0 screwdriver from home depot with a decent sized handle.
