try holding the power button for 30 seconds and see if the recovery menu pops up. If it does choose 1 reset vita hopefully that will help.

try the recovery menu

Below are the steps on how to get in the Recovery Menu:

* Turn off PSVita (press power button for 10+ sec)

* Now press and hold R + Power + PS Button

* Now you are in the Recovery Menu/Mode

from here use your D-Pad to Rebuild Database. if that dosent work, do the steps agian and click on Restore PS Vita System.

good luck hope it works! let us know!

Have you even charged it? Put it on charge for 30 minutes and go back to it.
