Sorry Eko but that was one of roughly 7-8 different options listed as DIY fixes to solve the mysterious PS VITA black screen Failure that came about for my personal system coincidingly with the download and install of the 3.2 system release back in April 2016. Downloaded fine. Went to install. Never came back to life after that. Black screen no matter how long I charge ( have charged up to 2 weeks....), Have tried booting to safe mode - nothing works. Always black screen. The system appears to take the charge - but it is as if the display is totally crashed.

I know plenty about computers but I'll just have Sony repair it since I have a couple months left on 1 year warranty. Absolutely 100% problem is related to the firmware release though. Company should do the right thing and issue a clear statement and own up to it. Microsoft lost TONS of customers over similar problems with Windows 8 and 8.1 crashing PC after PC with the BSOD problems. I have 2 PS TV, 1 VITA, 2 PS4, 1 PS3, and a 59" Sony Flat screen. Too much is crashing they gotta get it together. Love the brand but this is getting ridiculous having to use warranty on last 2 products.
