Introduction: Psp_joystick_upgrade

hey i was just sittin around and thought.....i_should make a psp joystick like the ps2.so i had an pelican controller that didnt work.so i came up with this!

Step 1: Getting_ready.

first_youl_need_an_old_ps2,ps1,ps3_controller;or_wat_ever_has_a_joystick.youll_need_super_glue,a_vice(those_thingys_you_use_hold_things_like_wood_while_your_cutting_them),a_saw,and_thats_it!

Step 2: Getting_your_new_joystick

ok_break_open_your_controller.get_the_shell_off(both_sides.)now_pull_off_the_joy_sticks.you_can_through_your_controller_away,or_can_be_like_my_dad_and_save_it_for_something...(-_-)

Step 3: Cutting_the_joystick

ok.get_your_vice,saw,and_joystick.now_before_you_put_your_joystick_in_the_vice_you_have_2_choyces,you_can_keep_your_joystick_nice_and_smooth_by_putting_a_board_in_between_the_rubber_pad_and_the_grided_metal_of_the_vice.or_you_can_not_put_1_and_give_your_joystick_a_grided_texture_to_it,like_my_lil_bro.(WARNING:grid_may_not_stay_there.)any_way_cut_the_bowl_part_of_the_joystick(that_lil_gaurd_around_the_joystick.

next_step....

Step 4: Gluing

now_your_joystick_should_look_like_a_lil_mushroom.get_your_super_glue_and_glue_your_joystick_to_the_stock_psp_joystick(the_flat_lil_black_disc)make_sure_it_is_sturdy!!!and_also_make_sure_it_is_dry!!!and_also_dont_let_any_glue_run_over!!!!!!it_may_glue_the_whole_thing_down.be_cautious.

Step 5: Have_FUN!

have_fun,your_psp_is_now_upgraded_with_a_new_joystick!

    Hey, this is a great instructable and is very informative. Just one thing is missing... pictures! It really helps a lot when trying to follow directions so you should consider taking some photographs. Once you do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks! Thanks for the cool instructable and we hope to publish this soon!

    it_would_be_better_if_you_used_spaces_so_that_i|_can_actuslly_read_the_text_without_it_going_off_screen

    This is a great idea! I just bought my psp 3001 version 6.8 and the joystick seems to be shrinking smaller than the prevous models. Kinda hard to use because i have really long fingers. >.<

    You really should type like normal. It's bad enough you talk in textslang, but then you add ____ all over. Very annoying. 0.5*

    my keyboard was broken, so i had to improvise

    Why do you have so many underscores?

    you call it an upgrade and i call it a DOWNGRADE

    ha ha your so funny get my instructable

    uh ive got a psp slim im having trouble pulling off the origonal joy stick to replace it

    5 replies

    hey i know you asked this avery long time ago but you have to take a psp slim apart in order to remove the joystick

    no it should be the same

    yeah i figured it out a couple of days after i posted that comment thanks anyway

    huh i dont know about a slim......... well mine was kinda glued i guess.huuuh try to just hold your psp in one hand right at about the middle,and try to just pull it off with the other hand.be carefull not damage your psp.also i forgot,if your finger nails are short and cant cover enogh space between the psp and the joystick to pop it up try to use something like ruler that will cover generally enough space between them to pop it up.if you have more q's just comment srry evry one i havnt replyed for a while,i have been tied up in school and helping dad uot at his docters office...when i have the chance to check this stuff,its usually not on my mind,so srry.

    nvm i realised this is glued on

    DUDE first thing YOU Should learn, TYPE NORMALLY!!!

    What_is_with_all_of_the_underscores? You might want more pictures of the in progress steps. BTW, did you hear of the second nub hack, where instead of one joystick, you have two like a ps2 controller has? It makes me jealous. I don't have the parts.
