My GP2X has always had problems with the joystick nub. It doesn't like going to the left. I tried opening it once to play around with it but have not been able to find a solution. Can this be fixed?

Mine is is the same as below.

Or rather, can anyone point me towards a replacement joystick to solder onto the board?
I remember there was a mod to replace the joystick with a Nokia N-Gage dpad, maybe there's some old threads that go in the details. Every now and then you also see for-parts GP2Xes on ebay.

I found some of the mods. A lot of the images are gone but I did find the schematics.

I decided to just order these PlayStation joysticks. https://www.ebay.com/itm/382795490276

Good luck! One thing to keep in mind though, the GP2X had an 8-way digital stick not analog, so that might be a problem unless I'm missing something. Maybe @DaveC could come out of retirement and start offering d-pad mods again :D

That sounds like something worth knowing. I have no idea!
