fell in the water, how to diagnose?A friend dropped his 4S in the water, and he says "now it doesn't work" - (I know, that's not very helpful) but I don't...
Answer to "Cannot Turn on Vita Unless It is Charging"This sounds to me like the battery is not supplying the right voltage (to start the unit up), but it is supplying the right current (to keep it running). What happens when you try a different battery? Update: Many electronics use a different starting voltage and a different sustaining voltage. If your battery is not delivering the proper voltage, the device won't start up properly, but if it's plugged in, the battery is taken out of the picture. My advice to you, try to borrow a known good battery from somebody, and if your Vita works properly when you use it, you know that your battery is the problem. If you can't borrow a battery from somebody, you have to buy one, try not to destroy the packaging and save the receipt, in case you have to return the battery to the store (if that turns out to not be the problem)
