After a solid four year run, this old PSP has seen better days. Countless bumps and grazes and now it's pretty much inoperable. So, what better time to teardown a pricey product than when it's broken beyond repair?

If you're here, you love a bit of circuitry, so let's get to it.

This is a relatively long teardown, so buckle up!

NOTE: Please be aware that this teardown is not intended for re-assembly.

Это демонтаж а неруководство по ремонту. Чтобы отремонтировать PSP 1000, воспользуйтесь нашим сервисным руководством.

    • This is the easy part, place the PSP upside down, on its top side.

    • There's only one screw to take out here. Since I'm no genius when it comes to screw sizes, I'll let you pick the right one from your set of twenty.

    • Remove the battery cover.

    • Start by removing the three screws highlighted by the red circles.

    • Take care when removing the forth screw, as it's slightly tighter than the rest. This screw is highlighted in blue.

    • This is the point of no return, if you choose go on, you're voiding your warranty. So, carefully peel back the warning sticker all the way off.

    • You'll find two small screws concealed below the label, remove those screws.

    • You can now start to carefully pry the top cover from the unit, using the spudger. Start from right to left, leveraging slowly.

    • Contrary to what this picture might suggest, this PSP hasn't contracted chickenpox. Each red circle indicates a screw that you need to remove.

    • Carefully unclip the connector circled in red.

    • Open the UMD slot. With the screen facing towards you, unclip the locks at the bottom right outer-side of the hinge, and the bottom left, inner-side of the hinge. Remove this component.

    • Remove the four newly revealed screws, in any order. If you're afraid of commitment, you might like to assign each screw a number between 1-4, and decide using a random number generator. Remove this component.

    • Place the PSP face up, with the joystick side on the right. There are two lock clips located on the right side of the LCD, unhinge these. Remove this component.

    • Now don't get all gung-ho, be careful when detaching the LCD, as it's attached with two connectors. You can unlock these connectors by pulling back the brown latches VERY carefully.

    • Same deal again, go crazy with remove the screws highlighted in red... Crazy in a calm and collected way. Remove this component.

    • Disconnect these two cables.

    • Remove the screw labelled in red (to the top right of the device, the other is incorrectly labeled in the image). These are holding down the main circuit board.

    • Almost there, if you've come this far, I commend you on your effort! Again, carefully pry open the cable lock and remove the WiFi component.

    • Remove the circuit board, this might be the most important step. Sit back and gaze at the chips for at least 5-8 minutes. NOTE: You can come back to this step at any point.

  6. PSP 1000 Teardown: step 7, image 1 of 3 PSP 1000 Teardown: step 7, image 2 of 3 PSP 1000 Teardown: step 7, image 3 of 3
    • You can now remove the WiFi board and chip, along with the metal plate.

    • The chip Sony used in the original PSP could pick up wireless G bands, which made it a nippy handheld network device for its time.

    • At the time, £280 worth of circuitry, wires, metal and plastic. Beautiful sight.

    • You're all done, this step is just to bring the steps in this teardown to an even number :)

    • Mmm... circuits. SIDE NOTE: I'm not certain, but I think that the chips circled in red control the DRM for the device ;)

    • P.s. Apologies for the relatively low-res images, but it's the best my camera could muster.

    • By request, I've also included the component overview as its own step in the process.

What about repairability score

fghjsfj - Ответить

Written by ifixit = repairability score

not Made By ifixit = no repairility score

So I just did this and I love the result. I actually had a PSP-3001 so the step with the clips was confusing but I figured it out! I can't believe I took apart a PSP worth $411! It was so funnnn

Hi, I replaced the case on my psp1000. When I put the thing back together I found the power switch doesn’t spring back like it used to. So if I turn the PSP on I have to physically push the switch back into the middle position otherwise it turns off again. Is there some sort of spring mechanism that I’ve missed? I have replaced the plastic switch and the yellow tab that it clips into. How does the spring mechanism work exactly? Hope this makes sense. Thanks!
