I finally got my hands on the PS Vita today, spent most of the evening setting it up, updating the firmware, charging, going through Welcome Park, downloading demos etc. All working fine.
I leave it on standby for a while, come back and start using the web browser. Constant errors; it won't connect to my WiFi access point (even though it connected no problem earlier), and even though the 3G connection is shown as active no site will load. Also the menus and interface became extremely sluggish. One of the "suggestions" was that I restart the unit and that should fix it.
So I hold the power button and the screen goes dark - the option to power off doesn't appear. The blue light blinked for about 30 seconds and then turned solid. It's been solid now for about 20 minutes and the unit will not turn on under any circumstances. Please do not tell me there's a BLOD ALREADY!?
Solved! Go to solution
I tried holding the power button down and after around 20 seconds the light went off and the recovery menu appeared. I just went to restart as opposed to rebuild and following a prolonged wait, it started up as normal and hasn't had any problems since, fingers crossed!
CAPTIAN-STUPID your problem sounds way more severe than mine, probably a return job unfortunately. My screen went dark when updating but I wasn't sure if it was part of the update, an error, or the screen turning off because I hadn't pressed any buttons in a while. Luckily it came back on after 30 seconds or so.
Mine is doing more or less the same thing but usually when going to standby. Blue light stays on and cannot restart it other than by resetting.
Same exact thing happened to me, infact it also happened right after I played the soundless Unit 13 demo. Maybe a glitch in the demo? Although, I also got the glitch where the screen went completey black and the blue light was on yesterday, and I got myself out of it. I was also able to get out of the blinking one in the same way you did.
Oddly enough, none of this happened before I updated to the firmware that was released on the official launch day (had the first edition one), so hopefully it was a glitch in that new update.
Thanks to you my friend i dont have keep sending it back to the store to switch it back .... that would have been my fifth time for free with the same things hahahaha thank you connections :D
Thank you so much. I thought i would have to take my sons birthday present back. It works again YEAH!!!!!
Wow...I was seriously worried there for a minute about my Vita. It was also blank screen with solid blue light. Mine froze first, then when I went to turn it off....the menu with the "power off" function came up but then also froze on me. Holding the power button for 20 seconds, like you suggested, worked for me. Thanks so much for posting that!:Thumbs:
