I've been wondering this for a while and tried asking a few times but never got a straight answer.
Basically my psp's joystick is messed up and constantly thinks it's being pressed down.
EG when I play monster hunter I can't run forward and if I leave my stick alone the character walks down.
Now I'm wondering if completely replacing the joystick will fix this?
I've heard cleaning the contact (http://www.ziquextrading.com/psp1korirubber.JPG) can fix it or even replacing the contact may.
I'm not sure where on earth I could find a new contact other than ebay but I have found a new psp 1000 analog stick that I could simply replace my old one with but I'm weary about buying it if it's likely the contact that's faulty and not the analog.
Another issue I'm having is I'm not sure if the contact is actually inside the analog? Could someone verify / discredit that for me?
Is analog wander caused by the analog stick being faulty or the contact (link above)
I had problems with "ghosting" on two psps that I have fixed. The problem I found was that the joystick was screwed in to tight to the faceplate, which caused problems. I fixed both by loosening the screws and haven't had problems since (one of the psps was mine).
Like CBC said it can be both..might want to try the stick first as you can find those pretty cheap..actually can find both cheap..if it's a 1000 series it'll most likely benefit you to replace at least the contact.

Where I bought mine and some spares and I will attest that they do indeed work.
Also bought some spare analog sticks from there too.
I left a post on your other thread having pretty much the same problems. I finally got some parts and replaced the analog stick. To my surprise the damn thing still had problems with axis mapping and drifting. I ordered a rubber contact via ebay($3 US seller) but haven't received it yet so I went to look at the one inside my PSP. After gently prying it out the conductive analog contact I cleaned it and flipped it (You have to wedge it back in carefully). Ever since my PSP has been working like a dream. Not sure if this will help you but who knows. If it isn't the rubber contact/screw pressure/actually analog stick then I was going to replace the motherboard which seems to be last resort. Good Luck.
Changing the faceplate or the whole case will sometimes cause these problems. Some of the after market cases are poorly made and thus dont allow proper contact between the analog stick, the silicon contact and the mobo.
I had the same problem. it was the little silicone piece that sits between the joystick and motherboard. It has 4 metal contacts in it that make the conection from joystick to MB. I wasted my money buying a new stick and it did not fix anything. I'd bet my nuts that's what your problem is.
Ya, I did the same..... and its already working.
My problem was analog drifting..esp..while playing fifa10..and dante's inferno
then I disassembled the analog,separate its tiny parts...i cleaned all the parts and wiped off all old lubricants..and did a small trick to make it move smoothly...what i did was....I applied some petroleum gel[not much...just a little]...and i worked like a charm....
U ppl do the same....it will work and u dont have to buy another analog.
i have tried pretty much everything, but my psp 1000's analog stick is still ghosting down. ive tried loosening and tightening the analog stick's screws, ive cleaned and flipped the rubber contact, and i even bought a new analog stick. wat should i do?
^ What about the screws holding the two faceplate halves together? Tighten/loosen them. If all else fails, dump your $5 eBay faceplate and put your OEM Sony faceplate back on.
this is simple to fix you do not need buy a new analog stick.
1.you need to do is replace the old Directional button cable FLEX
2.remove the backplate that covers the Screen and put a little hot glue on the side.
3.use Lacker Thiner or any alcohol to clean the gold plate in the analog stick
4.use a magnet into the tiny rubber 4 connection wires.
5.cut a small size cardboard and put into the new directional button sticker to control the analog stick.
and then its done put back the screws on the psp and open "internet Browser" check the psp analog stick its no longer drifting.
that's how you solve your problem.
i wish i had a broken psp to show you the actual.
