Introduction

Sony’s PSP 300x is well-equipped with powerful built-in speakers. But, these speakers do wear out overtime due to over usage or sometimes, from anger in slamming the device on your desk after getting shot in Grand Theft Auto! You may have slammed it so hard that the tragic result is your speakers needing to be replaced. While this is only one instance resulting in broken speakers, other signs of bad or broken speakers are buzzing, crackling, distorted sounds, or no sound at all from your PSP 300x.

If any of this has happened, this guide will surely aide in teaching you how to easily remove the damaged speakers so that you are able to replace them with new or working speakers.
