Vita not turning back on (firmware 1.69)

4 replies 200 views Edited Jul 5, 2012

Ever since I upgraded the firmware on my Vita, there's been a 50/50 chance of it waking up after I put it to sleep. The blue light stays on but nothing else happens.  Even when I try to cold reboot it by holding the power button and the PS button for 30 seconds, it does not reactivate.  At this point I have to wait for the battery to run out so I can charge it back up again.

 

I'm not sure if this is a common issue with all 1.69 Vita users, however for me this happens on a daily basis.

Definitely not normal. 1.69 user here, no issues.

I suggest accessing the Recovery Menu and Rebuilding Database.

You don't hold the PS button and power button, you just have to hold the power button by itself for 30-60 secs. It should reboot to the safe mode screen. Once there just hit or click on Restart PS Vita. Please let me know if it helped.

Thanks, it worked!  I'll also rebuild my database later just as a precaution.
