    I recently put on a new faceplate (the old one was scratched). It took a while but everything worked.

    I went to test all the buttons, when I got round to testing the left trigger it felt tight, so I tried it out in a game. It worked. So, why is it tight? I took it apart, repositioned it but its still a little stuck. Sometimes it feels like its not actually pressing. But it still works.

    Any ideas?

    Was it tight before? And is the faceplate on correctly?

    Pictures won't really help, I would post the sound if could, the good trigger sounds like a nice clean click, the other one is like a dampened thud... Lol, I tried taking out the trigger, it was all okay underneath etc. I may just learn to live with it.


    It wasn't tight before, it was quite slack, im pretty sure its on properly. I have doubled checked it all.

    Hmmm, I absolutely destroyed one of the screws, has like no grip left so I had to pry the psp/faceplate away. probably damaged something when I was pulling it. But I couldn't see anything when I checked.

    wow that sux but i replaced a faceplate a while ago and it didnt have really anything to do with the triggers.
    Open it back up if its not already open and see if it like that when the faceplates off

    To be honest, I've had enough of opening up the bugger haha.

    When the faceplate is off, both triggers act the same.

    God damn it, I found out what was causing it. Under the shoulder buttons there is a little metal tab thing, and thats whats missing, must have come out, and I can't find it D:. Plus its impossible to find that part... anyone willing to spare this part? Just to get the one little part, I will need to buy a broken psp for 30 pounds.
