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

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 :(. 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..

Hi there. Sarah here

 

I had same problem today. It's all fixed now, by same method (although through different website, sorry) :smileysad:. Anyway, my comment is, it's simple really, innit?, so why wouldn't Sony put it in IN-BOX instructions, in BIG letters?? I understand how EVERYONE with a Vita/console must use online, but surely, for something that simple, (hold the button to reset), a PAPER instruction leaftlet is much simpler/easier to search than something the size of Google. including signing into laptop etc. I was unnecessarily distressed by this today.

 

What does everyone else think. I look forward to hearing

 

Talk soon

 

Sarah

I also have a blank screen which is frozen. I held down the on/off button for 20 seconds  then asked the system to restart and pressed x button.  The logo comes on followed by Sony and then it goes blank again. Total black screen with the play station button blue.  Please help me.

Try entering safe mode on the Vita by holding power till the console Power cycles and boots again, and then try to reapply the system software update using a PC.
