Scary PS4

[ Edited ]
14 replies 304 views Edited Aug 7, 2014

So last night I was going to bed. Turned off everything and put my controller away. 15min later or as soon as I fell asleep my ps4 auto Boots up on its own and spits my Game out The Last of us Remastered. But for some reason it wouldn't take any games in but could only hear the sound if my ps4 ejecting a disk but nothing inside, keeped doing it every like 5 seconds, turned it off and on and still ejecting and didn't take disc in. So I did old fashion ps3 technique place a disc half way in and take it out and back in, and believe me or not it works fine now again. Man I think my system is possessed.

Seven days after I ordered mine, it crawled out of the TV.

My PS4 gets up late at night and does the boogy woogy, but I'm used to it now and tell it to just turn off before it goes to StandBy Mode.  Smiley LOL

About 20 years ago I had a TV that, every few months or so, would turn on by itself, go to some fuzzy non-working channel, and the volume would turn up all the way. That was never a fun way to wake up. The only way to make it stop was to unplug it.

The PS4 has a poor design flaw with the eject button. You stand your PS4 vertically to avoid contact between eject button and counter surface. You could place something between you console and you table surface to avoid contact  with eject button. There are threads started in the support forums regarding this issue.

Could just be fingerprints on your eject button triggering the function. I just posted this in the support section: The PS4's resistance touch switches are based on the fact that human tissues (like the skin) have a great amount of water and salt, which are used to make the switch conductive.

 

So basically all you need to do is use a clean cloth to wipe any fingerprints off of your eject button. I was having the same issue with my PS4, this method resolved it permanently.

GameStop sells a vertical stand for $19.99 and works great. More air hits my system and this issue has yet to happen with me.

Thing is its the the eject button. My PS4 gas been doing the same thing and I tried everything. Buying a stand, unplugging it for 5 minutes. Nothing works. I just dropped mine off yesterday at FedEx to send it in to repair it. Sorry to say you probably won't be able to fix it yourself.
