PS Button - Info about the light

[ Edited ]
11 Replies 7,231 Views edited 24-02-2012

Constant Blue

The PS Button will stay lit up blue, whilst the PS Vita is on and out of standby/sleep

 

Flashing Blue whilst turned on

A notification 

 

Flashing blue whilst turned off/Frozen

Do a reset. Hold the power button down for 20-30 seconds until you see a black screen come up with some options. Choose the first option to restart the PS Vita, and this should hopefully fix the problem

 

Flashing Orange

Low battery. You won't be able to play whilst the light is flashing orange, as the battery is too low to play. Charge it. 

It will continue to flash orange, even when you have it on charge, until there is enough charge in the battery

 

Constant Orange

If you have your PS Vita on charge and it is glowing orange, this means it is charging. When the light is gone, it is fully charged.

Mine froze last night less than 24 hours after purchase :(

I had a black screen and All buttons were frozen including the power button. I tried your suggestion of holding the power button for 20-30 seconds, nothing happened I held it solid for a minute all that happened was my finger hurt!

 

This is what happened leading up to the freeze:-

The Unit 13 demo had NO sound, there was sound when I closed the demo down.

I started the Darts game, it sat on the splash screen for 3 minutes before I tried to shut it down (using the PS button and corner swipe.)

I got a ring of dots on a black screen for 30 seconds or so.

The screen then went totally black and the PS button started flashing once every second.

I have the WiFi only version.

 

I am disappointed that this happened with in 24 hours of  purchase and now dread it happening again

Mine froze as well, and I just left it alone for about 5 minutes. I went back to it and it had the reboot choices on the screen

@BarredAgain I wouldn't dread it happening again, as the Unit 13 demo affected my system for as long as the demo was on the system. It shouldn't be the Vita, rather the content on their which could be buggy (darts game/demo a possibility too).

If it starts happening again with fully released titles that you know to be patched/supported or simply stable games then it is the system firmware, and whilst you can try a few safe mode options such as re-building the database or formatting the memory card, if those options don't work, take it back to the shop.

But I can tell you, the Unit 13 demo and a few other demo's are notorious for freezing the Vita.

@Naaz1979 try this link below:

https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3735/~/ps-vita-safe-mode

Ignore the first bit about getting in to safe mode, because it the console is frozen, then you hold your finger on the power button for 30 seconds firmly. If it doesn't work try it again. If not leave it for five minutes, then try again. Either way you should be left with the safe mode screen shown in the link above, and then fixing the problem there is up to you as I don't know the circumstances in which the system froze.

As mentioned above, certain demo content can freeze the system. Other corrupted data also. If you suspect that, then formatting the memory card (wiping everything off) or re-building the database is an option.
