Within the last week my PS4 has been shutting it self and either going into safe mode or restarting and telling me that I didn't shut it off properly. Is anyone else having this problem? And does anyone know what could be causing this?
I have had this same issue since the week of February 17th. Leave the PS4 in standby and it shuts itself off after a few minutes (not all the time, I'd say 3 out of 5). If I shut the PS4 down completely, the next time I try to power on sometime I just get a beep a flashing blue light for about 5 seconds, a click sound and then it shuts itself off again. Now my PS4 was absolutely fine until that 3rd week of February. I did not have a single issue whether leaving in standby, remote play, or full power ups with the DS4. Now I have an issue about 85% of the time I turn it on. I either get the "unplugged" message or I get the blinking blue light have to hold the power button down for a manual power off, and when I power back up again the system seems fine. On Saturday my system shut off on me for the first time when I was actually in the UI screens, just "click" and shut off, no lights. Not sure if it was an isolated error or what. Thing is I'm growing extremely tired of troubleshooting a brand new console. Plus having to go through a 4-6 step process just to turn it on and forget about remote play... I don't even leave the system in standby anymore.
Yes- Mine would shut down after 2+ hours of use at random times. It would make a buzz and shut off. When I would re-boot it, it would tell me it was not shut down properly. I tried the installation via safe mode/USB route and it did not work. My faith in Sony was shaken TBH, but I went into tech chat with a support guy and he was really helpful. I have to send my PS4 in to be repaired, and I'm waiting for my box in the mail to do so. My recommendation to you is to go into tech chat, while I may be wrong I'm betting you will eventually have to send yours in. Good luck man.
I had this problem too. After about 3 weeks of use, the PS4 would randomly shut itself off. Sometimes after 2 minutes, sometimes after 2 hours. I got tired of it and returned it to Best Buy for a refund....
Yes my ps4 does the same thing after 8 mins of play its bad enough that ps4 doesn't have half of the capabilities as the ps3 but now its broken and with a receipt I cant find im just another victim of sony and theres nothing i can do. They really stuck it to us this time thanx sony
Sony hid your receipt?
