20 Replies 652 Views Created 05-12-2013

Just recieved my PS4, lcuky to find one on the shelf at Game,

 

set up as instructed

 

Can only get safe mode then a blank screen after re-start and the console just restarsts and goes back to displaying the white light!

 

I have tried holding the button down for a minimum of 7 seconds till the machine beeps twice as the instructions say's but still no luck!

White light means its on and functioning just not displaying on your tv, try different cable/ different tv?

Not sure if this will work but as you get the white light strip on the console and you can access Safe Mode I don't think your console is bricked. Just download firmware 1.51 on to a USB stick (around 300mb) and see if that helps. If not then just go back to GAME either for a replacement or refund.

It sounds like the display issue that loads of people have had (including me). Most people managed to resolve it by hooking the PS4 up to another TV, downloading and installing the 1.51 update and then trying it on the original TV.

It might also be worth seeing if you can update the firmware on your TV.
