This guide shows you how to remove the PSP Go's trigger buttons.
Note: The procedure is exactly the same for the both left and right trigger buttons.
Step 1 Back Cover
Unscrew the four Phillips screws on the back of the PSP Go.
Rotate the PSP so you can see the top of the device.
Unscrew the two Phillips screws next to the volume buttons.
Use a plastic opening tool around the perimeter of the back cover to loosen it on all sides.
Open the back cover by gently lifting the right side, and rotating it to the left side (as if you were opening a book).
Be careful not to rotate the back cover from the bottom, as you will break the plastic screw holes on top of the device.
Step 3 Top Cover
Pull the top cover upwards gently from its housing.
Step 4 Trigger buttons
The top cover will most likely come off during the repair, so might as well take it off now. Pull it upwards gently from its housing.
The procedure is exactly the same for the left trigger button.
Use a plastic opening tool to gently flip up the left trigger connector.
Unscrew the lone Phillips screw holding the trigger in place. Remove both trigger and retaining plate from the PSP Go.
If necessary, repeat steps 2 and 3 to remove the right trigger button.
