Re: Broken PlayStation 4 Systems

Dec 20, 2013

Purchased my PS4 in December 2013.  I figured that the QC process for the newer releases of the system would be better than the launch edition.  After plugging it all in, I immediately get the "blue light of death".  Tried different cables, different TV, different hard drive, and booting to safe mode.  Every attempt failed.  This is the Xbox red ring of death all over again..except I didn't even get to enjoy my PS4 anymore than I would a rock.  Called Sony and explained what I did to troubleshoot the problem, and they are sending me a box to return it for what I assume is a refurbished system.  Turn around time was estimated to be about one week.

My Playstation 4 won't even turn on. No BLOD, nothing.

If you get  a plusing Blue light there´s nothing that can be done but Unplug the consol from the power cord for a couple of second and see if it works, if it does not work, return it to the retailer or send the unit for service.

Me too..

 

Loud pop and then nothing.. If I connect again I see blue light for 2 secs..

 

Disappointing from Sony.. Just bad quality checking.

Bought my ps4 in December 2014 but now since 3 weeks ago this weird thing happen. After like using the ps4 for like 4 hours the image just drops. (like u would unplug the hd cabel), after like 1-2 seconds the image is back (the software in the console is not affected and the internet connection is live and i can still chat live during this 1-2 seconds) and keeps doing that randomly with an interval of 20 min. is anyone else experiensing this issuue?

i've had the ps3 and on it I could play for days with no problems, so this is not acceptable from a hardware standpoint.

have not yet talked with the support of sony nor with the reseller and by the looks of it I would have a hard time getting help from either of them judging from this forum.

please comment here if u have had the same issue.

PlayStation forever

Mine won't connect to TV has white light on but is making a low pitched humming sound. Never done it before. Had it working then wouldn't load anything on the home screen. Last night as I was turning it off the power cut out as it was saving. It seemed fine as I turned it back on to check. Not sure what's happened. Only got it at Christmas. Please help
