Rattles & won't play

I just turned on my PSP and it started making a rattling noise and the game won't play...the home screen works fine, though. Any thoughts on what the problem is? Only rattles when a game disk is inserted...

    have you tried changing UMD's?

    2 things

    if you have changed the UMD and you still got the rattle problem, it could be the small motor


    if you insert anothe UMD and you don't get the rattle, its just the UMD not placed well, damaged or the lock on the CD roller is not engaging.

If you only hear a rattle then it might be another case of locked lens. For some reason the lens on the phat psps have been known to lock, meaning that they will spin but won't read. This might be the problem and you might want to contact sony about it.

When I switch on my PSP, it directly goes onto load the UMD game and when I try to quit using HOME button, the buttons and consoles dont work. Then I need to use the hold button after which though the...

Hi. Since you're in UMD Autoload mode, you need to configure that in the PSP Settings. To do this, turn off your PSP and remove your UMD. Now, turn it back on and it won't autoload your UMD since it wasn't there anymore.
Now, go to "Settings" and scroll down to "System Settings" and press X. Scroll down again the selection until you see "UMD Auto-Start" and press X. At the right side will appear the options "ON" and "OFF". Select "OFF" and press O button several times to go back to main screen.
Insert your UMD. Now, try playing games from Memory Stick. You may have to turn off your PSP and turn it on again to finally play homebrew...
I hope this helps...

Why is my psp making a rattiling noise

This usually has something to do with the UMD drive. The little disc spins and if its off balanced or not being held in the right position it can cause it to rattle. If it doesn't affect your game play I wouldn't worry about it. Other wise you may want to send it to a professional to repair it. OR if you feeling especially handy, you could get a drive on ebay (~$30) and try to replace it yourself.
~good luck!

I bought the new xbox when it 1st came out, it was fine then but as i start playing it now it makes a rattling noise which is really load. any ideas what i can do to stop this

It's probably either the fan or something inside of the DVD drive.

Does it only happen when a disc is inside?

Or does it happen as soon as you turn on the console?

Check it is not scratching the discs, and take back to shop where you bought it for replacement. These are not very stable machines.

Ps3 Sony console rattles inside

The rattling sound you are hearing is probably from the hard drive of the PSP. I Think you should get your hard drive checked/replaced.
