Your clicking sound is an electrical alignment problem. the psp is sending too much power to the umd drive. only way to do this is to modify the battery (not recommened, dangerous) or get a technitian to rewire the circuitry.

Have it sent in to the repair shop. I suspect the UMD drive has problems, because the clicking sound should NOT be there, only a whirring sound.

My daughters pink psp has frozen, for over a week now, she has taken out the memory card and game, its still frozen, what do i do now, please help

try holding the power button slider longer when powering off instead of the usual quick slide. this will make the psp shutdown completely. after that, try powering on again. make sure you don't have a UMD game/movie inserted to make the psp read faster.

Psp freezing

One solution could be that your PsP has been left on or used up to much. Buying a new battery for your PsP would More than likely Fix That Problem

Psp freezes up during certain games

bet you are playing on a slim, turn of the umd cache in system settings then the problem stops perhaps the game (driver 76) doesnt support the umd cache system using the extra ram in the psp slim
well it worked for me anyway

PSP won't power on

When you play a new game for the first time, the psp checks for the firmware version of your psp. If a newer version is available, the disc will require you to update your psp. If you do not update the game cannot be played. If you update, you MUST charge the battery 1st. Then, you must have the charge plugged in and allow the update to run uninterrupted. If you remove the game or unplug the charger during the update the bios chip will be ruined and you now have little more than a "brick".
When this happens, the unit completely locks up and has to be replaced. Basically, it corrupts the operating system and there is no ability to restore default settings as a back-up.
