The PS button on my PS Vita is blinking blue continuously, with no display on the screen. I tried restarting the console, but it still blinks without display.

Is there a solution to this?

According to the PS Vita manual, a blue flashing light indicates that the user has just inserted a disc or is in the process of ejecting a disc, but it can also crop up as a technical error, preventing users from turning the hand-held on or off.

Here's how to solve it:

  1. Hold down the power on/off button for approximately 30 seconds.

  2. Wait for a menu screen to appear that shows you the following options:

  • Restart the PS Vita system
  • Rebuild Database
  • Format Memory Card
  • Restore the PS Vita system
  • Update System Sofware
  1. Choose Restart the PS Vita system
  • The system should now restart with no problems.

You said you already restarted, but it's a bit unclear if you did the three steps in order, so the steps are just being reiterated. Lastly,

If the following steps do not fix your unit, contact Sony’s customer support.
