Fix Your PSP Dpad

UFighterX.com has come up with a rather unique way to make your DPad easier to use. It is a fairly in-depth and involved process, but apparently works pretty well.

      

Please note that this WILL void your warranty as it requires you to take the PSP apart. If anyone does try this, I would be interested in their results.

    I found this site after being frustrated with trying to get diagnals from my D-pad. I bit the bullet and followed his instructions. It is pretty simple to follow and the results are amazing. It’s like a new D-Pad. It does void your warranty, but here’s a tip: Be very gentle in removing the sticker. Try not to mangle it. It may have a few lighter areas now that say void, but a black magic marker to the sticky side will take care of those. Place the label back afterwords and the chances of anyone knowing that it was moved are slim to none ;-)

    you can use a hair dryer to get the sticker off. i did this to get the stickers off my ps2 and psp and they were both immaculate.

    My hedphone control for my psp does not wor, and i just bot it, the connection of my psp headphone does not work, that will be the internal connection of of the psp.
    does sombody know how to fix that?

  8. 8 Timstuff

    I bought a pre-made kit for this fix and installed it yesterday. It works amazing, it feels like a brand new system! Now I’m hitting diagonals like a pro, and you can’t even tell it’s a mod.

  9. 9 Josh

    I’m not a technical person so am not willing to try this, but my down button on the d-pad wont work unless held down (tapping doesn’t work) it drives the hell out of me. Anyone else had this sort of problem ?

    please write back or email to

    caswell1515@hotmail.com

    much appreciated

  10. 10 Josh

    also if the d-pad of the psp and ps2 are the same could you use the ps2 one on the psp? cos i have a spare controler lying around that might be useful?

    please write back

  11. 11 Dionisio

    When i upgraded my PSP to the new version 2.81 it didn’t want to install and it froze to then i had to turn it off by taking off the battery pack but when i put it back the light show’s but the the screen doesn’t light up it stay all black without a sound to it….

  12. 12 Dicer999

    Sorry Dionisio but, you bricked your PSP. Your best bet is to take it back. Sorry man!

    FYI: Dont take the battery out in the middle of an update!

  13. 13 Aces In The Palm

    hey josh, i tried and the psp wont accomodate a ps2 dpad, the lcd screen gets in the way.
    try it if you dont beleive me, but trust me. with a ps2 dpad in you will not be able to use the right direction of the dpad

  14. 14 josh

    i beleive you, i just heard from another site that they are the same.

    oh well, i seem to have found a temp solution for it anyway.

    i wish the psp had another analog stcik aswell (for the right)

  15. 15 jamie

    hi, i took mine apart and my right direction button didnt work, so i took it out of the casing and added sum glue on the back to act as a kind of extension, it just wasnt hiting the sensor undernath, it wokred gr8, next thing i new i laoded a game and my charector was spining around as tho i was using the analog, but i wanst, so i took apart and lookd around and found the sensor, i fildled around turned it bak on and MY SCREEN WAS BLACK, it wasnt bricked tho as i could hear everything going on like msuic and stuff. ANY ONE have any ideas please?

  16. 16 Josh

    jamie using glue on one side of the d-pad was probably not the best idea in the world cos it adds weight, might need a new d-pad or glue the other sides – as for black screen im sorry i cant help you there – if you didnt open it up you could of gotten it fixed – try psptree.co.uk it is good for psp repairs

  17. 17 jamie

    im not worried about weight, atleast i got it working again (the d pad that is), but im still fuked wid the screen, but i searched hard and a found a site that sells psp warinty stickers, so i could be in luck :)

  18. 18 Aces In The Palm

    hey jamie
    the spinning around analogue thing is due to the screw behind the analogue (the one directly behind home key) isnt tightened enough
    as for the black screen
    i think you may have dislodged the connector

  19. 19 jamie

    haha suckers, i took ma psp into game station where i baught it from, told em that the screen didnt work, they gave me new 1 and when i was out of shop , they shouted ‘come back u have void’ the warrenty, so i leged it and went home ahahha

  20. 20 josh

    hahaha nice

  21. 21 Aces In The Palm

    to josh,
    what you saw was that dual shock analogue is compatible with psp setup
    but you need to do some sanding
    the connection points at the bottom are identicle

  22. 22 Aces In The Palm

    thats very vague lol
    ok the dual shock analogue will work on a psp after some modding know-how

  23. 23 Alex

    Hi i was getting the 2.82 on my psp and it would not turn off so i toke the battery out and now it wont turnon the green light turns on but the screen stays black on then the light gose of help plz!

  24. 24 Alex

    My ps wont turn on i was getting the 2.82 and it said cant read stick so i tried to turn it off and i wont so i tock the battery out and now it wont turn on. The green light gose on but the screen stays black, what sould i do?

  25. 25 Aces In The Palm

    Alex, i’m so sorry mate….but you’ve bricked your psp
    all is not lost though.
    you’ll need to get yourself an undiluted platinum mod-chip
    then flash your NAND memory using the recovery epsilon firmware on the mod-chip (be sure you dont have TA-082 PSP board first (if you can see IC-1003 in the UMD bay, then you have TA-082 and cannot be modded)

  26. 26 Aces In The Palm

    and for the future
    NEVER TAKE THE BATTERY OUT DURING AN UPDATE
    always wait for it to switch itself off…no matter how long it takes and always update with AC power connected and batt over 66%

  27. 27 freddy

    my psp d pad when i press it up it gose down n up fast pleas help me

    yo my lcd craked i can repair psp by myself anything thats wrong with it but all i need is the parts so if u guys can tell me were to find a cheap lcd screen and backlight let me know but as far as the down on the d-pad all u needed to do was open it up and re adjust the d-pad toward the center or simply tighten the screws as the psps are pressure sensitive found that one out the hard way. well any way e-mail is jonathan-hunt@hotmail.com pls reply i need of imediate repairs.

  31. 31 j16

    yo my screen craked i need to know where to buy lcd and backlight at a cheap price for any further info contact me at jonathan-hunt@hotmail.com

  32. 32 j16

    yo my psp screen cracked i can repair anything on the psp my self though but i need to find an lcd and backlight also those electronics that control the home start volume and stuff cuz it broke so if any1 gots any info post me pls at jonathan-hunt@hotmail.com

  33. 33 Aces In The Palm

    gordan,

    if nothing comes up on the screen then its a brick….check inside the UMD bay for the number code IC-1003
    if you dont see this then you can buy a undiluted platinum modchip and “un-brick” it
    the mod has a copy of a PSP NAND firmware, with it you can flash the original NAND back to life.
    hope this helps.

    i was playin a video n changin da view wen da psp sudenly went ded…..only dose play pause stop things showd…rst allw as blak…da green light was on n only da briten button wurkd wat do ????

  35. 35 Aces In The Palm

    anum,
    try learning how to spell…i’d like to help you but i have no idea what your talking about..
    please try even rewording

    from what i gather its like this

    i was playin a video and changing the views when the psp suddenly went dead…only those play, pause and stop things show….rest all was black…the green light was on and only the (um taking a guess) brighten as in brightness button works?

    it makes it difficult when you have to translate but i think this is the general idea of it

    can you get into the XMB at all (the PSP main menu that pops up when you start without a umd)
    can you still play games ?
    more info please

  36. 36 Nisha

    Hello,

    Ive had my psp for quite some time now and never had a problem, well the other night I was playing a game and shut off the game as usualbut when my boyfriend went to play the game he said nothing was happening. the green light would come on but the screen would be dark, and if I placed it on the charger the charge light would come on for about 2 seconds and then cut off.. does anyone know what is wrong?? and how do I fix it??

    thanks

    hey all,
    Is there a PlayStation endorsed solution to the diagonal problem? I had a PSP for a while but returned it after getting really pissed off trying to play Tony Hawk. Is there a trick to getting the diagonal to work or a cover or somthing that wont void the waranty?

    Thanks.

    thanks in advance, Nick

  41. 41 Aces In The Palm

    Hey Nikolai,
    have you modded your psp with this …if so theres 2 solutions, 1, your glue has come away and the mod has shifted or 2,you havent tightened the screw behind the home key enough so the analogue is reacting

  42. 42 Nikolai

    well that was the thing i haven’t taken it apart. i was just wondering if anyone knew what was going on with it and a way to fix it before i went all hack and slash on it

    Hey guys.

    I think I’ve bricked my PSP. I was trying to get dark_alex’s 2.71 SE-C to work, but I couldn’t use the files in the “NEWINSTALL” folder to work so I tried to install a program that would use the files in the “flasher for recovery” folder. As you can obviously tell I’ve got no idea whatsoever when it comes to firmware and homebrew and I ended up installing an OC Module and using some advice from a forum (that being the idiot I am can’t remember). In the end I’ve tried to install it and it wouldn’t work and turned itself off, so now every time i turn on the PSP the green light and back light turn on, but after 15 seconds it turns itself off. I can still access the recovery mode (holding ‘R’ when PSP is starting) but I have no idea what to do.

    Please help me!!!

    Thanks in advance

  49. 49 Aces In The Palm

    Dark_Alex’s firmware requires 1.50 boots to be loaded from msroot:\psp\game150\ folder
    also in advanced options in recovery you will see kernel boot (2.71 or 1.5)
    and you have bricked
    you will need a UP mod to kick that sucker back to life

  50. 50 Aces In The Palm

    if any one wants any live help
    im at clintbatty@msn.com
    i have flashed to 3.01se and i wouldnt recommend it.
    although its a good sign for homebrewers.
    you will lose iso load option through USB stream
    i dumped all my umds to iso
    because i take my laptop pretty much everywhere with me as well its still a portable option for me
    and i only need to take one of my games anywhere i go for iso any umd mounting

  51. 51 Dicena

    need to know how to fix the power button such as the on and off button

  52. 52 Gordon

    My up button on the d-pad seems to be locked, atleast, that is what the PSP thinks as it keeps moving everything up.

    I have not modded or opened my psp, i just started encountering this problem while play Virtua Tennis (a game I have had forever)

    It is really annoying. I thought it was a problem with the game, but it seems to be happening in the XMB area to.

    Please help

    ken,
    sounds to me like your laser is busted or the motor that spins the UMD is busted….put your hand on the back and feel for vibrations when you load a disc…if you feel it spin then its the laser…if you dont..then its the motor.

    check your firmware and see if it can downgraded (2.80 and under) if it can you can go to 1.50 which means you can get a devhook launcher mod which will let you load UMD iso’s through a USB cable..you can download the PSP games through any good torrent site, and i recommend only downloading games you own as this is called format shifting…not piracy

    2 Friends PSP’s

    1 UK Pink PSP and its not powering on, power light flashes once and nothing happens.
    1 JAP Black PSP with broken screen. (Unknown other issues)

    As they want the working PSP to be Pink, I completely dismantled both PSP’s and rebuilt them.

    Things found:
    Power Issue is directly related to the main board.

    What I now have is

    1 Pink PSP with a mixture of bits, all powers up and screen is fine, but the right directional button does not work – I have tried both circuit boards for the directional buttons.
    1 Black PSP with bad main board and broken screen.

    Any help at getting the directional buttons working or the faulty main board working would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    -downgrade your psp and install custom firmware-

    You either have someone make a Pandora magic memory stick & have a Pandora Battery (self made service battery)*note* they also have to have a hacked (custom firmware like Dark Alex’s m33) psp to make these* & the 1.50 eboot, to downgrade your psp to 1.50 ofw (Original FirmWare).

    I didn’t have any *friends* that had either of those. So this is what i done to unbrick/downgrade my psp. First off I bought a Datel Battery Tool (an already made Pandora battery basically) online. Google it, buy it. Then there is a program called Total Newbie Installer. You don’t need a Hacked psp to create the magic memory stick using this program. the site to download this programis here http://dl.qj.net/TOTALNewbi-easyInstaller-PSP-Tools-Utilities-(on-PC)/pg/12/fid/14749/catid/193
    Its a pretty large file…like i think it was almost 187mb’s. But it is a GUI program, emulates a hacked psp.

    That program will make a pandora magic memory stick for you, just follow the instructions given when the program runs. That program already has the 1.50 eboot, and also has the Dark Alex’s 3.71m33 custom firmware included.

    So all you’ll have to do is run the Total Newbie Installer (to make your memory stick a Pandora magic memory stick), after that is finished, take your battery out and place the Pandora or the Datel Battery Tool in, and follow the instructions ON THE PSP SCREEN. Another thing, when you buy the Datel Battery Tool, it isn’t charged to 100% out of the box, and it doesnt come with instructions. All you do with the Datel Battery tool is charge is and place it in the bricked psp along with the memory stick (you created with total newbie installer to unbrick/downgrade your psp) Also make sure the Pandora Battery or the Datel Battery is at least charged above 90%, most say at least 75%. But 90% is safe. All you do is place it in your already turned on psp, and charge it. when the indicator light turns green, it’s fully charged.

    OPTIONS If you have a *BRICKED PSP*

    Option A- find a friend with a pandora magic memory stick & a Pandora Battery.

    Option B- Buy a Datel Battery Tool online or have someone make you a pandora battery (its cheaper to find someone that knows how to make a Pandora battery , but if you can’t find one you only option is buying an already made Battery tool), and have a friend with a computer & a WORKING! psp to make your memory stick a pandora magic memory stick using the program i explained above.

    if option A and option B is too much for you……

    Option C- take it to a technician and have them fix it for you for a price. Just be prepared to pay a lot of $$$ for this service.

    This is where i learned how to fix my psp, and replace items. Here’s a Tutorial on taking apart your psp, from replacing the faceplate to the UMD/Laser assembly. Just reverse the Instructions to put the psp back together correctly.

    http://www.llamma.com/PSP/PSP Repair Information.htm

    -Person with the *sound is working but i can’t see anything*-

    with the screen not showing any visuals, but the sound is playing, when you took apart your psp, and removing the lcd screen, there is two harnesses, a large one, that is clipped the to motherboard, and a smaller one. The smaller harness isn’t plugged in correctly. It’ll pop out. Go to the tutorial site where i posted, and follow the instructions on how to remove the LCD, don’t worry about removing it completely, all you’re going to do is see how the harnesses are attached, as a visual reference. So you’ll know what i’m talking about.

    Thats basically your problem, it’s not plugged in all the way.

    Oh and remember, everyone is a newbie at one point in their lives, so don’t feel like you’re stupid. Nobody is an expert from the beginning.
