Some times you dont need to replace your analog. You just have to clean it.
1. Take the analog out.
2. Then take the metal bracket off.
3. Then take off the back. You will notice that the back it wet with like grease.
4. Take a Qtip and dip it in alcohol shake the excess off. Clean the board you took out and the metal also clean the back where the sliders are.
5. Then reassemble. After that it should work after that.
The grease shorts out connection causing it to move.

Not sure I'll ever see a response on this, but at this point, I'm willing to try anything.

I've had my joystick replaced before. It was brobken in that it wouldn't move. It worked fine for months, but then a few months ago (I've been sitting on this problem a long time now) something happened and well. In joystick heavy games, like where characters move using the joystick, characters will move on their own. I can't use the internet browser for the same reason. I tried cleaning the joystick, but, I think it may have to do with that little rectangular piece of rubber wedged in the metal below the joystick. It looks as if it has minuscule wiring in it.

If it gets a cut, or had a corner scraped off, will the joystick stop working. I ask because if I can find someone who will sell me a broken PSP for cheap I could just replace it. If not I might as well save up for a new one -.-

Ok, So here's what happened.

For some reason the analog pointer keeps going to the North West direction even if I don't have the analog stick and faceplate.

Also is there a way to get another rubber because I lost mine.

alright, before i buy a new analog stick for my psp, i need to know if i have to buy a new one or not. it started with me dropping my psp in water, so i opened the sd card thing and took it out, opened the umd drive thing and took the game out, opened the battery case and took out the battery and let is sit for about 3 days. when i put everything back, it worked just fine other than the L button sticking, so i removed all 5 screws and took off the faceplate and cleaned out the L button area, put the faceplate back on, and everything worked just fine, but it had dirt under the screen, so i took off the faceplate again and used a can of pressurized air and blew it away, but when i put it back on and tried it again, the analog was drifting down without me doing it, so i cleaned up the analog stick area, but when i put it back together, it still was going down, and the only way to get it to stop is to press inwards on the stick and hold it there. help me!!! :'(
