Mine does it also here in Hawaii. For the last 3-4 days now. It also ejects the disc after I normally turned off the system & a orange light is on the ps4. When turned on it say system was automatically shut off." HELLO" why? When I fully shut it down or turn it off. I never had my ps4 vertical either.
I called Sony about my PS4 doing this... ("keep ejecting disc & ejecting the disc after I shut it down fully at night in the morning the disc is sticking out & orange light is on, then a message pops up that system was automatically shut down blah,blah,blah... When I turn it on again. HELLO I turn it off FULLY it shouldn't be on with orange light & disc sticking out!") anyway SONY'S fix is to SWAP it for a NEW one. So they processed me to turn my ps4 in for a new one. Not wanting to give up... I did UNPLUG my ps4 for 20 mins & it DID work so far loaded disc first try. (this was after I hung up with Sony. After setting up a swap out on their suggestion.) before I unplugged my system, my system wouldn't take a disc for 15 mins straight of trying to load one.
This might help u... ALOHA from Hawaii.
This topic was created more than 3 months ago.
Sony released many system updates since then.
People keep reporting blu-ray drive issues.
If it were a software glitch it should be solved by now.
Probably it is a hardware fault.
Maybe its better to contact Sony support and send the console for substitution.
My ps4 had blu-ray drive issues and i decided to send the console to Sony.
They replaced the unit within a week.
Setup my PS4 on Saturday, installed Skylanders on Sunday, and yesterday found the disc ejected and when re-started it did the trying to eject a disc sound, etc.
Turned it vertical, shutdown, restarted, and it worked for a while, then spit out the game disc mid-game.
Did another shut down, went the forums for ideas, and then played around with the eject and power button, pressing each one, etc. PS4 shutdown again, then upon re-start issue solved and I played game for about 2 hours with no issues.
Did disc eject and full shutdown last night after playing.
Didn't call Sony support but will next time.
The point of this post is that this is happening with newer machines. Not sure when mine was manufactured but only recently purchased at Target.
Going to sign up for the PS protection plan ASAP.
I bought the ps4 at abu dhabi and stay in malaysia
I cannot claim the warranty as the ps4 is region warranty
All i can do is just wait for sony to update a new software and fix the problem we all had
And since the new update my ps4 is working fine
So hopefully it is related to software and not hardware
If my ps4 make the problem again.. I will get a pc. Lol
