Simple Fixes You Can Try at Home

Before bringing in your PS4 for professional repair, there are several troubleshooting steps you can try at home.

These tips might resolve minor issues and save you time and money:

Check inside the HDMI port:

    • Look for any damage: take a look inside the HDI port itself, see if there is any damaged pins or if it feels loose.
    • If the HDMI port is damaged: After you inspected the HDMI port, if there is any damage, you will need to get it replaced, you cannot do it with a soldering iron only, this will cause damage to the main board itself.


Check and Reset Your HDMI Cable:

    • Unplug and Re-plug: Sometimes, the issue is as simple as a loose connection. Unplug the HDMI cable from both your PS4 and TV, then firmly re-plug it.
    • Inspect for Damage: Examine the cable for any visible signs of wear or damage. If you find any, try using a different HDMI cable.


Restart Your PS4 and TV:

    • Power Cycle: Turn off your PS4 and TV, unplug them for a few minutes, and then plug them back in. This can reset the connection and often resolves signal issues.


Check TV HDMI Port Settings:

    • Correct Input Source: Ensure your TV is set to the correct HDMI input source.
    • HDMI Port Functionality: Try using a different HDMI port on your TV to rule out an issue with the TV’s port.


Update PS4 Software:

    • System Update: Ensure your PS4’s software is up to date. Software glitches can sometimes cause HDMI output problems.


Safe Mode Troubleshooting:

    • Enter Safe Mode: Booting your PS4 in Safe Mode (by holding the power button until you hear two beeps) allows you to change certain settings that could resolve HDMI issues.
