Is a blue light flashing on your PS4?

If so, or if the light is red, you have a problem. Sometimes this can mean that your console is randomly turning off. You can fix this yourself in just a few steps:

  • First, check that all your cables are connected properly. You can also try using another HDMI cable to make sure yours isn’t damaged and causing the problem.
  • Console overheating could also be the cause of the problem. Try cleaning the fan to allow the PS4 to evacuate heat better.

If your PS4 is having trouble playing or if you are getting an error message, the first thing to do is to check your game discs for scratches or damage. If the discs are in good condition, try these fixes:

Are you experiencing audio or video problems?
