Japanese Government Investigate overheating playstation Vitas

Posted by TurtleGirl On July - 25 - 2012

It has been reported a number of PlayStation Vitas have been burning up during recharging according to Yomiuri in Japan. The Japanese government agency are investigating this issue, and according to Sony, there have been 31 examples of these incidents since the handheld launched last December through to early June.


23 incidents were reported in Japan, eight in North America, United Kingdom and Australia. Sony sent a detailed listening of the various incidents off to the National Institute of Technology and Evalulation on the 12th July. In all the cases, the problem involved the connection slot between the charging unit and the PlayStation burning during the charging process.


Sony’s PR department told Yomiuri that the problem is not related to a product malfunction and will thus not result in a recall. The company believes that the problem is with people having liquids or other objects inserted in the connection. Those who ended up with a burnt out connector will have to pay to get it fixed.

    31 out of 2 million, hardly seems worth their time? What is more of a problem is you can plug the charger lead in upside down, which I thought could do more damage.
