Howdy folks. Just wanted to make a separate post, if that's okay here, just to highlight a quick issue that many people have had, including me, and what I did for it to finally work.
Release day unit. No problems until until Friday. Took out Battlefield to play some Killzone. Cool. disc inserted, but then immediately spit right back out. then the disc drive wouldn't accept discs at all. Uh oh. Not only would the disc drive not accept a disc, but every 10-15 seconds or so it make the eject sound without a disc even being in there.
I looked on this forum and several other forums. Did all the typical trouble shoot stuff. unplug, safe mode, #5 option under safe mode (reinstall something or whatever, can't remember). No luck.
Then I finally went back to safe mode, ran system software updates (2.52 I think?) through safe mode. The entire update and install took about 15 minutes. During the entire install, the PS4 continued to make the disc eject sound the whole time. I figured it wasn't going to work. But then after the install finished and the PS4 rebooted, no more sound.
I noticed that many folks said this step only worked for a day or two then the problem persisted. Well it has been a week, and no issues at all. If anybody else is freaking out and has the won't accept discs/PS4 constantly cycles through eject mode, hopefully this will help.
Good luck, folks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Good for you.
I had a similar problem and in safe mode chose rebuild database and the console stopped trying to eject a disc.
Maybe its better to try this first because is quicker. Doesnt mean it will work for everyone. My ps4 is working for 5 days without any problems.
Its a weird problem!
Power on and voala! Works again.
If anyone else is experiencing this issue I would reccomend trying Ealge's solution before trying to reboot. I tried rebuilding both ways mentioned above and the unplugging of the power cord is what worked for me. Thanks for the tip Eagle.
My PS4 did the same thing and I tried the safe mode and rebuild database, it worked fine for almost a month but it again do now I have to call Playstation to bring me the coffin
