Great guide. Only problem is this takes very steady hands (something i do not have)

chavis0704 - Contestar

This is a great guide. It allowed me to execute the repair and do so without and damage. Just be careful with the triggers they can move and get caught while closing everything up.

With your Vita connected to your PC and the Content manager application running, on windows right click on the vita and then properties and the battery percentage will show up.

weeelll I think I have a broken Vita now. Make sure you're not an idiot like me who doesn't know which parts to pull in which direction when trying to free the battery cable.

ylimakiminna - Contestar

Well. Didn't take out the memory card after removing battery Aaannndddd now the vita says its not in there.

Emmanuel Brown - Contestar

I had the same issue do you think you just need a new memory card? I'm hoping that's all it is even though they aren't cheap it's cheaper than a whole mother vita...

klarson79 -

I had the same issue Emmanuel I just need a new card then right?

klarson79 - Contestar

My PS vita phat is only displaying PlayStation. Logo then shutdown I can't even go through the recovery mode.. Tried most charging method... I tried removing my battery and putting it to a different PS vita unit and it worked fine... Is my battery faulty?

demetrio dario - Contestar

So I replaced the battery on my PS Vita 1000. When I try turning it on, an orange light shows up on the PS logo but the device does not turn on. Should I let the new battery charge for a bit before trying again?
