Stuck at "Please wait..." on PS4.

13 replies 2181 views Edited Nov 16, 2013

I can't back out and I'm afraid to shut the system down. Is this a common problem?

It allowed me to enter my PSN info, asked what I wanted to share with friends and now it is stuck. Anyone else dealing with this exact same issue and how do we resolve it?

I'm having the same problem. Did you wait or turn off system?

Still waiting. I'm afraid that it's downloading something in the background (very slowly) and, if I shut it off, it'll brick the console.

Oh man. I just ran out and bought a game ti actually see what this system can do. I put the disc in then figured I'd try to log into the network again. I advanced as far as you. Now stuck looking at "please wait" and cant go back.

Let me know if you end up shutting off the power.

 

I'm on hold with support (33 minutes and counting). I'll let you know what they say if they answer the call.

The funny thing is, if this happened on a regular computer I'd power it down in a second but because it's a new PS4 I'm being crazily cautious.

I don't blame you for being cautious. Having my original 60 gb ps3 die on me a few months ago, it's spooky. I just wish sony would give a tiime estimate so.we don't keep waisting ours with wishful thinking.
