Oh too bad...mine's running fine at 333mhz lol
Only thing is I stained the lcd when fixing a stuck keypad, dripped some alcohol and now I see some darker areas on screen.
Wondering if I can replace it...

Hey everyone! How is it going... Today I want to show you all, a recent modification I did on my PSP.

Nothing too fancy, I decided that I wanted a Snow-White PSP, since Black Piano gets dirty way too easily and, wanted a bit of uniqueness and beauty!

All I needed to do, was to dissassemble to bare bones and transfer the internal components to the brand new housing. Simple yeah? In theory yes! In reality not so much... I ran into some problems (will list them later), and thankfully I got rid of them... at least for the time being haha.

Ok then, enjoy the pictures thumb.gif

Kinda dirty... hard to keep clean also

A new body for you


SPARKLING WHITE. Success!

Now for the issues... Well, let me begin saying that the housing Quality MATTERS. I'm unsure of the maker of this one, but some of the screw holes had wrong measurements and the screws could'nt just fit. I had to enlarge it abit by using a small screwdriver.

Also, the XMB buttons are not as good as the original ones are (Notice how they lack shining).
Original White Housing:

Super Quality, aka aftermarket housing:

Notice? Trust me, it's not worth saving money on these. Get the best one you can!


And now, some annoying problems I ran into that you may also, if you're planning on replacing your housing;

R and L Buttons being pressed for no reason
By far, the most common and the most annoying also.

Solution: Remember how the rubber PCB was glued to the casing? Yes, that had a reason!
I dont know how it works exactly, but lower part of the rubber must be fixed/glued to something since otherwise, it will be free to trigger the button.

To fix this, use a Glue Stick and put a little of it in the housing to fix the PCB in place. As far as reliability is concerned, I'm unsure of how long it's going to last... but hopefully enough!

Drive Lid not closing properly
Happens if you don't screw the driver tightly. At least that was the case with me hh


Considerations
Not sure if it's because of the housing, but the buttons and directional pads are not quite as tight or responsive as before.

I'm also using the old d-pad rubber, since the one that came with the housing sucks... Very fragile and doesn't feel like rubber at all.

I'll have a definite answer soon, after I put some components I ordered into the old housing.

That's all! thx for the read biggrin.gif

Pretty cool!

I'd love to try a cool mod like that but I'm afraid to mess up my buttons more.
My analog stick is kinda temperamental...
I tried cleaning the analog wiith isopropyl but it still makes my hunter move awkwardly at times and gets me killed often (mhfu) which pisses me off badly.

Any clues? Can I replace it or repair it?

Gratz! That was pretty awesome.. I don't have the skills for that. GJ!

Ah no idea, better to get a new one... It's not very expensive!

I've got a 1st gen PSP and it has been sitting in my drawer gathering dust for the last few years.

Give me reasons why I should get it out and use it?

Hi everybody,

I have a PSP (I believe I have 3 actually) and theyre all the 1000 series. I messed one up by accidently cracking the clip used to hold a screen connection to the mobo, and the speakers in another one died on me rolleyes.gif

I just use it to play the DJMAX Portable series... so yeah can I join your club?
