PREP BEFORE OPENING YOUR PSP..
Take some time to get your workspace clean and gather all the necessary tools. The last thing that you want to happen, is to return to your work area to find that you are missing parts.
Now that you have your parts (you might need more depending on what you need to fix) You should prep your work area.
Make sure you discharge yourself from STATIC ELECTRICITY, The least you can do is touch a large metal object. (Or not the least reliable way but still fun. sneaking up to a Family Member/Friend and give them your static.. Muhahahaha).
Also remember if the connectors are not coming off easily do not force them open or off.. this is VERY BAD! I have seen WAY to many boards which could have been repaired easily if the user didn’t force their way in.
So here we go, GOOD LUCK!
Step 6 Removing The Power Switch Board
|We now have to remove the power switch, First un hook the flex cable from the motherboard.|
|Place your flat head screwdriver under the PCB as show and then lightly pry upwards so it clears the latch,|
|Now pull it off the peg towards the top.|
|You will need to remove the right trigger contact by sliding it up and out.|
Then peel the adhesive flex cable free from the PSP case.
Step 7 Removing The Power Plug *
|First we need to remove the Silver Type “A” screw that is holding the Yellow Power connector down.|
|If you did not remove your warranty sticker all the way, the plug will be stuck to the case and will need a little extra force to remove it.|
|*I Usually remove the power plug after I have the mother board out, since the connector on the motherboard can break very easily.|
|If you need to remove the plug now make sure you remove this screw. Then lift the board up slightly since the connector will get hung up on the case.Then pull the connector straight towards you.|
Step 8 Removing The WiFi Antenna
|Now we can get the WIFI antenna out of the way. You can pick him up and gently untangle the wire from the case|
|You can leave him to the side since you cant pull out the WIFI board yet.|
Step 9 Getting Ready To Remove The Motherboard
|You need to remove the Silver Type “A” screw from the motherboard.
( If you didn’t do so when removing the power plug.)
|Now you need to remove all of the extra components|
|Unplug the Laser ( Like always lightly pull the clips to the right, working one at a time.)|
|Unplug the UMD motor and pull the flex cable towards you. If there seems to be not enough slack to pull the cable, you can use your flathead screwdriver to assist you in pulling.|
|Unplug the speakers.They can stay in if you are doing a repair.|
|To pull them out you can grab a hold of the wire, and pull straight up and out.|
Step 10 Removing The Motherboard
|To remove the mother board you will need to pry the bottom of the board up to get the proper angle
You will need to make sure that the motherboard has detached itself from the WiFi daughterboard.
|Pull the motherboard up and towards you, since the USB connector is sticking through the case.|
|Now you have access to the metal housings.|
Step 11 Removing The WiFi And Sound Daughterboard.
|Remove the Silver TYPE “A” screws.Pull out the metal housing and the black plastic clip.|
|Lift the top of the Daughterboard to pull it out, the headphone jack is sticking through the case.|
|The Daughterboard is gone.|
Step 12 Removing The UMD DOOR
|Again take your flathead screwdriver and GENTLY pry the hinge to the side and out.EXCESSIVE FORCE WILL BREAK THE HINGE.|
|More wiggle time…
|The door has dropped.|
Step 13 Removing The UMD Assembly
|You can remove the Metal Hinge if you wish Or it can stay on until you remove the assembly|
|Remove the 4 Assembly screws.|
|Don’t press to hard when unscrewing the screws. the case can some times break a screw hole.
Pick it up and brace the screw from behind
