If you're unable to see an image on your PS Vita's touchscreen, please check:
 

  • Is the PS Vita turned on?

    When turning on your PS Vita system for the first time, or when the console has been turned off, press and hold the power button for five seconds. When the power comes on, the PS Button lights up blue  If the PS button does not light up blue, please click here.

  • Is the PS Vita on, but no image being displayed?

    To check this you'll need to force the PS Vita to turn off.  Press and hold the power button for more than 30 seconds to completely turn off the system and then release the button. After a moment press and hold the power button again for five seconds to start up the system.

If the system does not turn on, or the screen still doesn't display an image, please contact PlayStation Support.
