I have the blue PSP slim and the battery latch button broke off. I can't put it back, can I? :/

Nope. In fact, the PSP is in danger of exploding! :shock: Quick, sell it to me as fast as you can! ;)

Which part of the clip broke off, it is very likely that there is a replacement part on dealextreme.

Palmertech: When you open the battery, you press this button and the cover pops off. That button has broken off.

just stick a pen in there or something like that ( unless you like using proper tools for opening up a battery case that doesnt like coming off properly... ) to open it without breaking something ( i have never broken that button, so my pen idea might not work... )

and buy a new battery cover off dealextreme, datel, sony or some other website/store that sells them... ( eb games is aplace that used to, if your lucky, they still might in ur area.... )

And put it on when it comes to you....

You could buy one of those larger battery covers that can fit a psp fat's 1800 mah batteries so you'll have some more juice on your psp. :D
