    One of the shoulder buttons fell out when I was doing this step, along with the piece holding it in place. They go back in just fine when reassembling but make sure that they are oriented properly, of course.

    Any idea what type of pcb header is on the board for the battery? I have a motherboard with a broken header but I cant source a replacement

    This is where I screwed up so I recommend extra caution for other newbies. Only the black part is supposed to come off. Don't be an idiot like me and pry off too much...

    Yea I messed up there too. Is there a way to fix it?

    This component was far more stubborn than the screen connector when it came to removal. I opted for a smaller tool than the spudger (small flat-head) and managed to disconnect it after determining the best bit size for the job. Screwdriver is metal, obviously, so being gentle helps to avoid damaging anything.

    Hello, I have the PCH-2001 model of the PS vita and the right analog stick went out. I ordered a replacement and the stick is slightly larger than the original. The original has a black rectangle on the back, the new version has the star version, which is what you have on this website as the replacement part. Any help here would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    My screwdriver does not want to unscrew those. They won’t turn at all.

    Got the same, used PH #0 and grabbed wireless card casing with fingers from the top to release pressure on screen and avoid (possibly) breaking it.

    Some PS vita models seem to use a T2 screw instead of a PH#00. I’ve encountered this twice now.

i am takig my vita apart (moving all boards/chips into new oled lcd screen/ front part) and am having trouble taking the wifi chip out in order to take out the right button board, the screw closest to the right button board is i think stripped, is there an easy and non harming way to the motherboard of taking that screw out?
