If you look in this picture I've drawn a square around the part I'm wondering about, that silver clip that goes under the analog stick and on the motherboard.
My psp analog stick isn't functioning and when I take it apart I notice one of those isn't there, would this cause it not to function? I got this PSP used from someone else for 20 bucks and think it's good this is the only thing wrong.
anyway, is it possible to buy one of those anywhere? can someone give me a link to a palce that sells them if they are even for sell at all. If not is there something I can do to subsitute it with? Like solder wires from the contacts on the analog stick board to the contacts on the psp mother board?
