Mine is dead too. It played for about 3 hours our first day without a problem. Last night it played 20 minutes, made a loud noise, went black and wouldn't power off. It was really hot so we unplugged it, let it cool, tried turning it back on and it does the same thing in less than 5 minutes. We won ours, so I'm curious how many weeks we're going to have to wait for a replacement.

I have the same issue. Waited in line last night, had it paid off for awhile and now all it does is turn on and pulse blue no video or anything. I've been on the phone for an hour waiting for customer service but I'm sure i'll get the same response everyone else is getting. so disappointed, I was really excited to play

http://segmentnext.com/2013/11/14/how-to-fix-ps4-freeze-crash-and-brick-issues/ This is the only confirmed method to unbricking your system (that won't turn back on after a few hours of gameplay) at this moment. Follow at your own discretion.

Don't forget to check that HDMI port. Kotaku fixed theirs:

Any updates porkchop? My situation is exactly the same as yours. What really irritates the **bleep** out of me is I cannot even get into Safe Mode. It just turns off instead of beeping. This will defnitely be the last launch console I ever get.

Re: Broken PlayStation 4 Systems

I have a problem where all the text and images are not displaying in HD. Text is incredibly blurry and my PS3 using same cables and TV ports runs at a much sharper resolution. Have gone into display settings and tried changing the resolution and this just makes it worse. If i change it to 480p it becomes an unreadable blur . I tried different HDMI cables and TV ports and it did not make any difference while my PS3 is running just fine. Any ideas on how to fix?

Good luck with that one, I have no idea! If it was a HDMI cable issue I would suspect the entire thing would be blurry...
