PS4 Stopped Working? Here are Top 3 PS4 Issues That Need Repair

Struggling with a slow or broken PlayStation 4? Broken PS4 console can be very disappointing. With the release of new iterations of its original console in 2016, Sony resolved some of the hardware issues that had plagued the PS4. The company also made efforts to improve users’ gaming experience through various firmware updates.

But still, the PS4 gaming console isn’t immune to occasional hiccups and that frustrates a lot of customers who are keen to enjoy a game after a hard day at work.

Most PS4 users will agree that their PS4 stopped working at some point. Here are some of the most common PS4 repair service requests we get every month:

PS4 Repair #1: PS4 Blinking Blue Light

When booting your PS4, the LED light on the side of your console should momentarily pulse blue before changing to white. But if your console has a problem, the blue light will pulse continuously without turning white. This is usually followed by your PS4 inexplicably turning off. This indicates a faulty video output, where the console fails to send a signal to your TV.

Following several complaints, Sony issued a PlayStation troubleshooting guide for this complication and offered an option to get your console replaced if none of the fixes worked.
