Noise, touchscreen works, but I have a blank screen!

11 Replies 2,561 Views Created 11-03-2012

Sorry if this has been answered before, but I am having trouble with my son's Vita.

 

When I turn on the Vita everything is normal except the screen is blank as though it has not been turned on. It has sound (theme music playing in the background and the touchscreen is working. I know the touchscreen is working as it is making the noises when I touch the icons where I think they are and when I close each page with the corner swipe motion. I have turned the console off normally and also by holding the power button down for 30secs, but still I am having the same problem. I would be very appreciative if anybody had a solution!

Might be that the wire inside between the screen has been disconnect. You might want to ask your son if he dropped it on the ground. If not i would take it back.

If it was working the night before you dropped it and now its not then I think its fair to summise that the drop has caused some damage sadly.

 

I have dropped my PSP and its survived unscathed, but there is a lot more jammed into the only slightly larger Vita, so I don't think there is much room to spare inside.

 

I have noticed that playing my Vita from cold, as it warms up it makes some disconcerting crick/creak noises.  Kind of like a TV makes (when you switch it off and they cool down).

My brother's vita is having the exact issue, turns on with the music and I'm able to scroll through the pages but nothing is visible on screen, just stays black. Me and my brother both got our vitas at the same time and mine is working fine, what is best to do?

Try the recovery settings option on the Vita. If you can see this menu then your screen is  fine but something is wrong with the system.

 

Now if you don't see the screen when doing this option then I would say it's dead and you would need to get it replaced.
