Hey, 

ive recently brought a PS Vita however all of a sudden the screen froze and the screen went blank and now all that it does it shows a fully lit PS Home button and thats it, was wondering if there is anyway to reset or try to fix this problem

To fix it

Hold down the Power button just keep it pressed until the blue lit ps button turns off, after u do that, on the vita again, it should come up with a screen giving 4 options, pick the first option which says restart ps vita and it restarts it

Re: PS Vita Blank screen

I had to get mine swap for a new one. I had a frozen black screen and just the blue ps button on. I managed to turn it off and on but when that happened my screen starts to flickers and the lighting dims real low Smiley Sad. I returned it to jb hi fi and once i got another console the new console had a bad crease on the sticker at the back of the psp. Its a bit of a let down..
