It's been a terribly long time since I've posted ;p
I realized today that one of my speakers on my fat psp isn't working. For all I know it's been like this for a while--I just caught onto it today. I did however drop it about a foot onto the kitchen floor by accident today, but it appeared to be a short meaningless fall at the time so I paid it no attention.
The right speaker is making no noise whatsoever. The left speaker, however, is. I've looked this up on several sites but most of the people who are having this issue have lost sound in both speakers. I've tried what they suggested: putting the headphones in and out of the headphone jack to try and bend back/loosen whatever may be wrong in there, possibly debris or a bent prong, and it's worked for a few people, but I've been doing it for about three minutes and I don't see any improvement.
I'm thinking there might be a short, but I don't really know how I would fix it if there was. I've disassembled a PSP before, but I royally screwed myself that time and vowed never to do it again. Since then I've grown a little more comfortable with the thought, but as the speaker appears a little more difficult to get to than what I was previously aiming for in my last disassembly attempt, I'm not so confident.
Anyone have any good ideas as to what I should attempt?
