Q: It might be my devise problem. does this sound natural?
A: The structure of this sentence is not quite right and I believe you meant to use the word "device" (gadget or tool) rather than "devise" (to create a plan or invention). Please let me know if my assumption is incorrect. :)

A more natural way to say there is a problem with your device would be:

1) "It might be a problem with my device"

2) "It might be my device's problem."

Both are grammatically correct, but I think #1 is more natural.
