i suspect that i have faulty ps vita. When i first turned on ps vita. it worked perfectly and decided to turn it off. the second time i turned it on, it won't turn on. i have tried holding power for 30 seconds or longer but it doesnt help (no light nothing). I have also tried charging till the charge light is off but no luck. there's not even a light when i tried to turn on the ps vita.

Hi same here, I got my psvita delivered from PLAY.COM yesterday. I updated and played on it, all fine. then this morning I was on my ps3 downloading psp games for my new vita. went to turn my vita on to transfer the data, and all i get is the blue light on PS button. this has totally ***** me off, 

 

I cant find a physical phone number to ring Sony up ... Im not wasting £270 on a useless lump of crap.

I had the same problem. The vita doesnt need to be returned. It puts itself in a standby mode. What you need to do. Hold down the PS Button for 3 seconds. After That Hold Down on the Power button till it turns on. It will give you options, pick the first one at the top to restart the ps vita and your screen will reaapear. :) Hope that helped

I have the same problem. It's completely 'dead'. The PS button doesn't light up.

 

Tried the various button combinations I've found on the web. (Hold the power button for 30 seconds, hold power/right trigger/PS button).

 

I've tried both charging with just the USB cable connected to me PC as well as in various wallsockets.

 

I did get to charge it once (yesterday) which worked fine. Then I played it till it switched itself off, hooked it up to charge it. Came back a few hours later to find it not working

It could be a charging problem. I had the same problem. Tried everything. Called Sony . Vita was charging & working fine. Played game & run the battery down. I plugged in the vita cable to an AC USB plug (not Sony's). The battery charge icon did not show that it was charging. Left it over night & next day battery was still dead. Then when holding power button down it would not power on & no light came on. Plugged it into PS3 yellow light came on & blinked. Problem is it will charge using Playstation console USB port but will take twice as long. Will not charge using any USB AC plug except Sony's which comes with your vita. Hope this helps. Went crazy trying to figure it out. Found out that lots of people are doing the same thing.
