my vita is getting a problem, at first the power and ps button would not work at all even holding the power button for more than one min would not work, only way i got turn vita off was to remove the battery out and put it back on and it worked well.
but recently its turning itself off while playing games, while the ps logo light up when i boot it , i tried rebuilding database, remove memory card and even reinstalled firmware 1..81. still does not work,
now when i am turning it on, its not even lighting up, but if i charge it, the orange light will keep on blinking, and if i plug it on my pc, it will get a sound from pc as if device is connecting and disconnecting itself, and screen would light up for a split of a second and turn off again , my battery is full, and the vita is not working at all, can someone help me, i imported the vita from US and i cant send it to sony for repair. any advice
thats what i thought, if hes already opened it himself all i can say is find someone that knows how to fix game systems or something, theres loads of people around me that know how to fix red rings, yellow lights, batteries, even touch screens
update: last night vita turned on i could play for a while but it turned off atfer playing a while, and i could turn it back on again but lost all my save progress
something is definitely wrong with the vita. i always took great care of it, i only played uncharted and a few free games thats all and used skype this sucks. vita never fell down or anything, a friend of mine once got a problem with his vita not turning on, turned out there was a broken IC or something on the vita, man i regret buying a vita first year. too many hardware defects and sony would probably say its my fault
did you buy it used? maybe it got damaged in shipping somehow also, read the other post about the kid who got his stolen, there were some good points made on how sony takes care of these kinds of things, you cant just call sony and expect them to send you a brand new vita
its new.i pre ordered it from ebay from someone in the US, no way it got damaged from shipping it was very very well protected and i have been using it since march problem started soon after installing 1.81 and the vita would not turn off / ps button would not work. since there is no technical assistance of sony in my country, i tried to drain the battery but there is always some juice left, so i could never turn the device 100% off. so i simply unplugged the battery and plug it back in, and vita started normal, i thought it was a bug in firmware and even reinstalled firmware, only recently vita not turning on, and sometimes when it does it would turn off an random times, the only thing that is constant is that it always ask mo to set up the date every time it turns on. and later on it would simply turn off by iself, plugging the charger would make the orange light blink on and on when i get this prob, but when vita is fine , everything works okay for abt 10mins / 45 mins, its all so random. battery is even full, i dont know what to do.
is there anything through ebay you can use like the ebay buyers protection, i havnt had any problems since the latest update, or any problems at all since i got it back in february.
ill try to help you out as much as i can but i do wish you luck in trying to get this resolved
