PS4 will not power on

I just bought a used PS4 yesterday, and much to my horror it would not turn on when I brought it home. I set it up, and when I push power the blue light comes on for maybe a second, then shuts down completely. When I press it a second time, it beeps again (as it does when I touch "eject").

I've contacted Sony, but as it is out of warranty I'm not sure what they can do. Do any of you have any suggestions (other than banging it on my knee, which seems incredibly silly to me with an expensive piece of technology)?

Any help would be appreciated. I really hope I didn't just buy a $300 paperweight.

You can get a new power supply on amazon depending on the model for $50-$70 typically. Also some time just removing and seating the power supply back in all the way down can fix this issue. There is just enough wiggle room even when its screwed down for it to lift just a little giving you a bad connection. Check for the Model number on the bottom of the PS4 before purchasing a replacement power supply as the older models use a 4 pin and the newer ones use 5 pin. They are not cross compatible. Check the warranty also as once you remove the stickers covering the screws the warranty is void for the console. You can also replace other components this way as well if needed like the hard drive. Once open its a good idea to clean out any dust in there to prevent over heating.

I have this problem but nothing is happen when I press either buttons completely unresponsive. From u it unplugging do I just need a new power supply?

Jon, if your PS4 is not under warranty, try this https://youtu.be/pszuueUTBrk

It worked for me after almost a year of searching for an answer. Do not take it COMPLETELY APART without trying this first.

I don't know where or who you bought it from but you may want to first see if they will take it back and give you your money back.

That being said, this is a super common problem with these. Sometimes it's a power supply problem but not usually. Usually it's caused by faulty solder joints under the APU (the large main chip on the motherboard). This is sometimes fixable but sometimes it's not.

There are a lot of businesses who advertise that they can fix this problem. You can find them by Googling them, you can probably eve find some on ifixit. My business also repairs these.

For you and any future readers who read this, here is a list of things that DO NOT cause this problem:

-HDMI port - The HDMI port has nothing to do with this problem. The HDMI port only affects whether video from the PS4 shows up on the TV.

-Software and updates - These do not affect whether the PS4 turns on or not. Software issues will still let the console power completely on.

-Controller or USB port - Neither of these have anything to do with where the problem is.

-Pretty much anything else...this is caused by a problem with the APU chip...nothing else.

I hope this helps.

If the ports where not damaged, I would agree. Although it is true that the PS4 was not designed to run accessories off the HDMI Port. The USB port still has a 5v positive pin. So it is possible for the console to turn off immediately if the self test senses a short.

Out of all of the PS4's that we've repaired (hundreds) there has not been a single one that has had the problem of powering on and then back off that was caused by anything other than the power supply or the APU. So while maybe it's a possibility that the USB port could cause this problem, in reality it doesn't happen. If it did happen it would maybe be .01% of the time which is not common enough to even mention it to someone who is looking for an answer to this problem.

I can verify what TronicsFix is telling you. My advice would be to seek out a business near you who does APU reflows as this is the cause of the problem 99% of the time.

Blow it! just received a second hand PS4 and had a similar issue - when we connected the power the light flashed blue, there was a faint click from inside, then the light went off. Nothing came on the tv. Inspired by the posts above I blew into the ports at the back and got a face full of dust. Blew until no more came out. Plugged it in again and suddenly it works perfectly! a big cloud of dust came out as the fan came on when it finally powered up properly.

Nice one. I had the same issue although my ps4 is two months old. I blew the living crap out of the vents and then it turned on fine. My living room got really smokey the night before due to a candle burning to long soi wonder if the smoke affected it.

I would first observe the outside of the system for dirty clogged air vents, if it looks dirty use the PS4 teardown guide on this site to open the top of the PS4. If it's really dirty inside it may have overheated at one point. Also, look at the HDMI port of the system for damage. It may need a re-flow or an HDMI port replacement.

Hope this helps you get an idea on where to start..

what you mean by re-flow?

por

It means that the motherboard will have to be heated up enough to allow the solder under the various components to liquefy so contact can be made with pins on the components and the motherboard.

Remember to shutdown the playstation 4 down though either holding down the power button until you see it go off or to shut it down through the ps4 console. I unplugged my ps4 on accident once and it killed the powersupply inside the machine. Also remember to blow out the machine every 6 months or so. Even if you are in a "clean" environment dust can still collect inside the machine.

Thank you for all the replies. I've caved and decided to pay the $149 to have Sony fix it/send me a refurbished one. Which means I will now have the same amount of money invested as if I had just bought new in the first place. Stupid mistake on my part for buying without trying, but lesson learned.

Thanks again to those of you who so kindly replied.

This is what happened to me: I put my ps4 in rest mode and some how it turned off. I couldn't get it to turn on with the controller nor by using the power button on the console. No lights would come up and it wouldn't beep. The only sign it made that gave me hope was one single beep when I pressed the eject button. So what worked for me was this: I removed all cables, everything. Then I waited a couple of seconds and inserted the power cable back in. From there I tried pressing power and using the controller but it still wouldn't work. I had to try removing the power cables a couple more times and then pressed only the eject button. Some how that worked and the ps4 turned back on. I don't know what would have happened if I didn't have a disk in, so..... I guess I'll keep the disk in even if I only play downloaded games. Hope it works for you guys. Good luck!

Hi guys. I've just experienced the same problem with a recently purchased ps4. I disconnected the power and hdmi cables for about 2 minutes and reconnected; it started fine. I would recommend always turning off the machine correctly.
