Paint job scratched? Going custom? Change out your faceplate assembly!
Step 1 Battery
Place PSP face down, so that the UMD Drive is facing upwards.
Locate the battery door and open.
Remove the battery from inside.
Step 2 Front Casing
This step requires the removal of the warranty sticker. Removing the sticker will void the warranty.
Locate the sticker in the battery compartment labeled: "En: Warranty Void if Seal Damaged."
Remove the sticker using the PSP Opening Tools.
Under the sticker is a 5mm Phillips screw needed in the next step.
Remove four 5 mm Phillips from the case.
If the screws stick in the case, you can use a magnetized screwdriver to draw them out.
Remove the following screws from around the bezel:
Two 4 mm Phillips
One 5 mm Phillips
The two shorter 4 mm screws are on the top of the PSP; the longer 5 mm screw is on the bottom.
Gently pry the front bezel away from the casing using a PSP opening tool.
Start on the right hand side of the PSP bezel, and carefully work the tool around the side.
If you want to clean the control buttons or D-pad, you can easily pop them out once the faceplate is off and wipe them clean.
