Why can't I connect my Vita to my PS3?

5 replies 7779 views Edited Feb 24, 2012

Whenever I enter Content Manager on my Vita I cannot connect to my PS3.  I have it plugged in, and nothing is running and I do not know what to do.

No, I had it plugged in right, and I fixed the problem, something with turning off its ability to charge or something like that.

I got the same message. I know how to fix it. When you first plug your vita to the ps3, you will get a message on the ps3. Do not press any button on the ps3. If you do, it will take you to the ps3 home page and you will not be able to connect to the vita. If that happens, just unplug the vita from the ps3 and plug it back. You will get the message again on the ps3 tv screen. Now on the vita go to content manager and now it will connect.

Thanks russianator456. The damn connector looks like its keyed but happily goes in backwards.

Solved my problem.

Thanks AwesomeShockWave.. couldn't figure that out. It was getting pretty irritating. I'd say using the Vita is far, far from intuitive.
