    For a while now my Vita has had an issue with the right shoulder button, it just does not work. But using the browser etc.. sometimes when i enter a text field the cursor is constantly going right as if its pressed down.

    Battery fault is sometimes it jumps from 2-3 bars full to red, sometimes goes off as if its ran out of battery when it actually hasn't because i can turn it back on again and it can run a while longer.

    So i checked online for repair places, and seeing prices it seems that it would cost well over £100 just to fix those 2 issues. Not really worth it, anything i can do or is my vita screwed? i cannot play any games because of the button problem.

    I think you're out of luck unless you are willing to pay for the repairs. :/

    normally if you bought you vita at max 12 months ago you can take it to the shop you bought it or contact sony and they will fix/replace it free of charge (make sure you take your sd card out before you send it in)

    I bought my Vita practically as soon as it was released so I have had it for a while now, i guess it wouldn't be under warranty. But if i have to pay for those repairs it's not far off a cost of a brand new one, and i have the 3G version.. very annoying.

    all i can use it for now is some of the apps like YouTube and the internet browser.

    Games are useless, i can start them up but because of that one button issue they are not even playable.

    I didn't think repairs for something seemingly simple to fix would cost so much.
