80w ago - Following up on the previous PS4 RLOD and PS4 Freezing & Overheating reports, today a new batch of PlayStation 4 bricking (such as THIS one) and failures has surfaced alongside a PS4 Launch Errors List and Fixes below.

To quote: Here's a list of issues plaguing the PlayStation 4 at launch, and how to fix them.

Astro A50s: Cannot Hear Other People Speaking

Everything appears to be hunky-dory with the Astro A50s, with the sound coming through the headphones just as you would expect, except for received chat audio. You can talk through the headset, but you can't hear others speaking.

A possible fix for this issue is to do the following:

1. Hold Home Button
2. Adjust Devices
3. Output to headphones -> All Audio

DualShock 4 R1 Button Sticking

There are several reports that units of the DualShock 4 appear to sport defective R1 buttons. After just a few hours of play, the R1 button seems to stick.



Remember to keep your receipt so you can return these to the store for an exchange.

PS4 Won't Turn On, Bricking Issue

There been a few reports that players who received their PS4 via the Taco Bell contest doesn't properly turn on, or off (once you manage to get it running). Here's what the symptoms are like:

The PS4 won't show a picture, but the blue light pulses. It tries to load data from the hard disk drive, but it doesn't - so it doesn't load into the operating system.



Here's a not-so-simple fix that appears to alleviate the issue:

1. You have to unplug your HDD
2. Boot the console without HDD and it will load Safe Mode (white lightbar) and asks for a HDD
3. Turn off, plug in the HDD again and boot the console again
4. PS4 will boot into Safe Mode again and you can recover now the necessary OS Data, PS4 will start again and will boot into OS again.

From GamingBolt.com: Here is What You Can Do When The PS4 Does Not Boot

A Twitch user (twitch.tv/hi11zones) recently faced a problem with his PlayStation 4. The console wouldn’t switch on and was essentially bricked. However, there are solutions for fixing this issue.

First off, check your HDMI signal. If that doesn’t work, switch off your console and remove the HDD. Boot up in Safe Mode (indicated by a white lightbar on the controller) and when prompted for an HDD, turn the console off, plug the HDD in and then turn the console on again. It will again appear in Safe Mode and will recover the OS data before starting up like normal.

If that doesn’t work, you’ll need to format your HDD and reinstall the relevant firmware. Keep in mind that the Twitch user above faced issues even with the prescribed steps. Make sure to get your HDD checked in that case.



From IGN.com on the percentage of broken PlayStation 4 systems:

A Sony representative has provided the following statement to IGN: "A handful of people have reported issues with their PlayStation 4 systems. This is within our expectations for a new product introduction, and the vast majority of PS4 feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We are closely monitoring for additional reports, but we think these are isolated incidents and are on track for a great launch.

There have been several problems reported, which leads us to believe there isn’t a singular problem that could impact a broader percentage of systems. The number of affected systems represents less than .4% of shipped units to date, which is within our expectations for a new product introduction."

Correction: Note that the statement originally provided to IGN by Sony mistakenly said ".04%." A Sony representative has now confirmed to IGN that this figure was provided in error, and it has been corrected to ".4%."

My PS3 had rlod after 5 yrs. I played it like a beast for hrs. Lol. It was the original first batch with four USB.

I also have a new slim version 320hd that while testing software caused a software ylod. At this current time still working on trying to fix it with software but have had no luck yet.

If anyone can help it will be greatful.

Yeah , indeed. But these sort of problems is the reason i NEVER buy anything from the first batch. The first ones are (and i am trully sorry for anyone facing problem) practically extended beta testers. Personally , I'll be waiting at least year to see if there will be any overheating ylod or rrod like last generation. Besides I've a ton of ps3 games I haven't even touched

Guys for crying out loud... 0.4% means 4 per thousand... 4units out of a thousand.

As 4% is 4 out of a hundred. It's a division of 1 unit... Know what that is? take a hundred items (called a). Each one of those is 1% of the total(a). Take that 1 item(b) and redivide it to another 10 parts... each one of these(c) 10 parts is 10% of (b) and 0.10 of (a)

Damn won't let me edit... 0.10 is the same as 0.1 and 0.01 is 1 out of ten thousand.

No, they already stated 0.4%, which means the math was already done. Percentages are relative numbers, and in this case the number of launch units is much larger than 1 (which your percentages are based off of). You can't just arbitrarily change numbers in real math.

How did you know?

If 1.0 is 100%, then .40 is 40%, which means .04 is 4%. What school did you go to? Thats simple math all day k-6.

Not my fault $ony is full of it.
