The PS4 is a great gaming console with a lot of features. It is, however, not without its set of problems. In fact, there are certain issues that have been recorded from when the console was first released to today. In this article, we will be looking at some of the common issues with PS4 and their respective solutions.

Let’s face it, a slow or broken PlayStation 4 can be such a buzzkill.

What is leisure time without Fortnite, FIFA 19, and God of War?

Of all the common PS4 problems, PlayStation Network (PSN) issues are most frequent. And while software updates have come with a multitude of new features and options, they’ve also created new issues that weren’t prevalent before the fix.

Here are some of the most common PS4 problems and how to fix them.

1. Blinking Blue Light

The blinking blue light on your PlayStation 4 is an annoying error message that appears when your console boots up.

Blinking blue light problems can be fixed by updating your firmware and doing a system reset. If that doesn’t work you may need to send your console in for repair or replacement.

But before you go through the hassle of getting a replacement, try the following hacks:

1. Turn off your console and detach all the cables. Next, slide out the hard drive’s bay cover and check whether the hard drive is firmly secured in place.

2. Try changing your HDMI to see if it helps. Also, check the HDMI ports on both your TV and PS4.

3. Check your AC power plugs, sockets, as well as the main power supply to ensure everything is okay.

4. Connect everything properly. Next, pick up your controller and press the PS4 button until the LED system light changes to orange. Then, hold down the same button again until you see a white system light. Try rebooting your PS4 and see if the problem is fixed.

2. PS4 Fails to Connect and/or Keeps Disconnecting from the PSN

Of all the common PS4 problems, PlayStation Network (PSN) issues are most frequent. And while software updates have come with a multitude of new features and options, they’ve also created new issues that weren’t prevalent before the fix.

The PSN usually goes down due to ongoing service maintenance. In this case, you’ll receive the CE-33991-5 error code. The good news is, service maintenance doesn’t take long, so you can just wait it out.

But if the problem isn’t due to maintenance and you’re still experiencing connectivity issues, you can try the following hacks to get back online:

1. Run an Update on Your Router’s Firmware

2. Reconnect to Your Home Network

3. Change Your DNS Settings

4. Unplug Everything and Re-Plug

3. PS4 Crashes or Freezes Often

If your PS4 is crashing and freezing often, you’ll need to reset it and delete some files. The problem is probably faulty firmware, a network issue, or overheating.

You can solve this problem by giving your PS4 a rest so it can cool down.

4. Blinking Red Indicator Light

In this case, the problem is most probably from overheating caused by a malfunctioning fan.

Here’s how to fix PS4 consoles with this problem:

1. Switch off your PS4 for about an hour to allow the console to cool down.

2. Keep the PS4 in a well-ventilated space, away from other heat-emitting electronics.

If none of these suggestions work, schedule a console repair to fix your fan with Fixsquad.
