Vita trouble. Please help!!

7 replies 152 views Edited Feb 6, 2013
My vita has frozen or crashed multiple times in the past month. I went to take it off stand-by and it would not wake up. When i went to turn it off it froze on the power off screen. Im wodering if it is a virus or if it is just internal damage. Will my warranty cover this? Please answer soon.

If:

 

  1. The warranty seal isn't damaged.
  2. You still have the box and reciept.
  3. The serial number stickers on the system isn't damaged/missing.
  4. Less than 1 year when you brought it.

It's still under warranty. And if it's under warranty, my suggestion is always "Don't mess with it. Return it."

A virus? Unless you've tried hacking it or installed unauthorized software they should/would be able to repair/replace it.

I get the same thing all the time. I just wait for it to run out of power.

Instead of waiting for power to run out just give it a hard reset. Hold the power button for 30 sec. Then restart and select restart.

U may be able to back up the vita to pc or ps3 then reset back to factory, then reinstall ur backup. That may be worth a shot as well

i reset it everytime. and no i have never hacked it because it is awsome without CFW. could it be because i downloaded music onto it via the web browser?
