View Full Version : Sticky UMD Switch

August 31st, 2006, 03:21
The open switch for me UMD drive is sticking, its really hard to move over to open the drive.
Anyone else have this problem.
I just traded my new psp for this one, so maybe its been dropped or something.

my first psp did that, i didn't know why though :(

Did you ever do anything to fix it? i was thinking about putting a few very tiny drops of WD40 underneath where the button sticks to see if it would lube it up

that might work, but i don't know how well WD40 will work on plastic :)

i had the problem but somehow it got fixed

yeah, never thought about reactions with plastic

i can wiggle the metal shim when the umd is open, and theres barely any resistance, its just the plastic part is nigh impossible to move unless i have long fingernails (which i dont)

it might not be a good idea, now that i think of it wont the DW40 stay there and get on your fingers when you open the UMD door, then it will get on your psp's faceplate :eek:

Think i should just keep wiggling it till it stops sticking?
I bite my nails, so its hard to open it, i gotta have a pop tab or a pen or a knife to just slide it over, cause i cant get a grip on the peice.

you could try that, but i doubt it would work...mine was like that for about a year and it never loosend up :(

i reccomend not to open it, because you'll end up with a psp that has dirt or other stuff inside, like mine has a white pice of lint in it :mad:

Its probably just dirt. Get a Qtip with alcohol and pass it around . Make sure its not drenching and it sips troghu.
