Ps Vita keeps freezing when no Wifi hotspots around(not sure

125 Replies 1,272 Views Created 24-02-2012

Well so I got my ps vita, and I really love it, besides the web browser I think it's awesome but one thing that keeps annoying me is the freezing. I am not sure if this is true or not. But every time I turn on my ps vita and there are no hotspots detected the vita will crash in less than one minute, and I have to hard reboot the vita going to the recovery menu and click restart and when this happens some times it even crashes while raeding the game.

Transmits audoio/video signal around the house using the same radio range as Wifi but with a non-wifi protocol, which may exaplin why some people's Vita's die when in range of these devices. Digisenders, like Wifi, don't care about walls - so you may have problems if your neighbour is using one for example.

Ah ok.

 

Is there likely to be one of these in my workplace? (a gamestation btw)

 

Could explain the freeze ups when im trying to play there.

A small update here.

 

Yesterday I took my vita on a car trip and played it fine with no freezing issues. Played hustle kings, everybodys golf, unit 13 and lumines combined for about 2 hours and didnt freeze once. Theres no way that I had access to wi-fi the entire trip (spent most of it on the motorway) so maybe there are other factors attributed to the freezing than what we think?

 

This was before I updated my firmware too, I did however get the update when I got home but cant confirm its effect on the freezes.

Yeah, I've done a bit more testing on the Underground but still haven't experienced a freeze yet.

There has to be another factor in play then, no doubt about it. Maybe the others were onto something with the digisenders interfering when there is no wi-fi around?  Either way its still a pain that we cant play our vitas in certain locations (I still cant play on my breaks at work) and obviously Sony need to at least comment on the issue so we know whats causing it, and then hopefully release a fix!

Mine appears to be working fine since the fw 1.66 update. I've had my digisender on permanently, and the wifi hotspot is seen on my vita now without any issues. I would have thought Sony may have mentioned a wifi update in the firmware notes, as there certainly seems to have been some changes to the wifi implementation.

@DrProng the wifi notes are probably the adhoc from the psp emulator.

I'm pleased to report that after consistent crashes at work, the update seems to have fixed the WiFi problem.

Nice of Sony to admit there was a fault though, eh?! *rollseyes*
