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.

Does your console no longer read game discs?

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?

If you cannot hear sounds or see images, check that your HDMI cable and optical cable are connected and working. If a piece of metal is holding one of the cables, it could be the source of the problem. If the cables are not in contact with anything and are in good condition, try these fixes:

  • Try connecting the PS4 to another TV. Once connected, go to the console settings and then to “Sound and Display.” For video, you’ll need to manually set the video output to use. Then, turn off the PS4 and reconnect it to your original TV.
  • For audio, go to “Sound and display,” choose “Audio output settings” and then select “Main output port.” Finally, choose the “Digital out (optical)” option.
