So I bought I pre owned vita today and I noticed I can't do anything. Now there is still a psn account tied to it that I don't have a password for obviously. When I try to do a complete system format it requires me to log into this other guys account, which I can't. Every help topic I've read says you can just format but for some reason it won't let me.

Thanks in advance!

Have you tried holding the power button for a long (and I'm talking about 30 seconds here) time until the system reboots with several options, one of them being to format it?

A system wipe should give you a PSN login screen that you can enter your own info into..

im getting an error message saying I must log in with the account that is tied to the system. And I held in the power button for about a minute and nothing happened.

you have to completely turn it off (by pressing the power button more than 5 seconds)
then you have to press and hold the R trigger button, the PS button and the power button..
you should be in the recovery menu then and choose to completely wipe the PS Vita...
be aware that everything in that vita will be deleted and not to be recovered anymore so if you have pictures or files you should transfer them on your pc
