My HDMI port is out of place and not connecting. Any fix without breaking it more


vCryptiik

The power went off last night so ps didnt shut off properly when i woke up it went into safe mode and made me install an update file for reinstallaion of version 10.1 and at this point i was kinda worried since this never happened before but i did what it said then it asked me if i wanted to initialise and now im actually worrying. Is there anything i can do to just get my ps4 back to normal. Or can i safely initialise without any risk of losing anything because i have a lot of progress on some online games.

If I bought a Japanese ps4 pro, would I be able to put US psn accounts on it, and use US credit cards on it? Also curious if I would be able to change the language to English, thanks!


TTV_V01d12

my wifi was working a couple days ago but yesterday I tested the internet connection on my ps4 it says “cannot obtain ip address within the time limit” and when I try to connect the wifi it says the same thing Can anyone help???


calltarneedazan

Got god of war ragnarok, put in data disc 1 then that’s done says to put in game disc 2 but it’s stuck with 99+ hours at queue. What should I do? https://files.catbox.moe/27cv44.jpeg Then after a while that screen closes and clicked on the paused game icon does nothing to advance it. Looking at my Downloads selection, it shows God of War Ragnarok version 3.02 Ready to install and I click start and nada 🤷‍♂️

I just saw that startup company came out on the PSN store anyone know if it has mouse and keyboard support

How do I fix the error code WS-45629-6? I couldn't find the error code on the internet. Just for clarification the code pops up when I got to the music part on the quick menu and Spotify just shows a black screen


Lumpy-Government14

Do gift cards from Poland work with a Ukraine ps4? Asking because i want to give my friend from Ukraine a giftcard


Internutt

The PS4 is irrelevant, the Country that the account itself is set to is everything. Polish wallet vouchers only work on a Polish Playstation account. So find out what Country his account is set to and purchase a wallet voucher for that Country.


Lumpy-Government14

i was gonna buy it at a store so i think ill buy him something else or just give him money


Dselbdc

last night my ps4 froze when i was turning it off so i unplugged it and restarted it in safe mode and got off for the night but this morning i turned it on and it all seems fine but when i turn it back off the X Square Circle and Triangle logo kinda stutter for a bit then it turns off is this fine or is it time to upgrade


Chance-Shoulder227

I was looking to make a purchase on an account that couldn't interact with the wallet so I went to the account that could but after I put the funds in the wallet I still couldn't make the purchase What can I do to fix this


Internutt

https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/support/account/ps4-parental-controls-and-spending-limits/ Update the parental controls


Chance-Shoulder227

Which part? I tried the Parental Controls.


Internutt

The spending limits. It may be defaulted to zero, so update to allow the spending if that's what is blocking it.


Fjums1

I want the ps plus premium subscription for 1 year but it said that it will begin charging me after 6-7 months instead of 1 year anyone know why?


Internutt

If you are currently subscribed to PS+ you first upgrade your current subscription to the new tier. So if you have 6-7 months left of your current sub that will be why.


Fjums1

So if i buy the ps plus premium subscription it will only start working after 6-7 months?


Internutt

No it starts as soon as you pay for it.


Fjums1

But it says the next charge will be 130$ every 12 months starting the 08/08/2023 which is the thing i dont understand if im buying it today then why will it charge me only after 6-7 months?


Internutt

...yes the NEXT charge. The next charge because you are signing up for an ongoing subscription service. The next charge is a separate thing to the payment you are making today.


Fjums1

Alright I understood it now thanks for the help!


ThePinkSkitty

Sorry if this was asked before but is there anyway to see what your birthday is on the PS4? I'm trying to login onto the playstation app on my phone but Idk what my password is and I lied about my birthday since I was under 18 when I made it. Idk why my dumb self didn't just fake my year instead of my entire birthdate as a whole.


Internutt

No because Sony's ToS state you have to use your real DoB. It doesn't display your DoB anywhere because you should know what your own DoB is and it's a security question so won't display it to protect you. To update the DoB to your real one, you need to contact support and give them your drivers license/passport.


SPXTRE

My ps4 has been disconnecting the controllers seemingly at random. After doing a hard reset they only connect for long enough to sign into a profile before it disconnects again and will only charge and blink a yellow light. I'm at a loss for what to do anymore.


DaveSimonH

Are they v2 controllers (ie the ones with the light strip on the touchpad)? With those you can set them to wired/USB connection mode, instead of Bluetooth: > Settings > Devices > Controllers > Communication Method > Use USB Cable If it works, you could pick up a long USB cable, eg 10ft/3M and just leave it connected.


scuba_dooby_doo

My PS4 has stopped working suddenly, I switched on and got a black screen with "checking system storage" and it gets to 25% before stopping. I've entered safe mode, tried installing update for version 10.1 from ps site but it downloads and won't install. I also tried to rebuild database and nothing. There is no noise coming from the HD as there usually is. My next move is to open it up and check connections inside before I order a new internal drive. My question is if this sounds like a reasonable plan and if there is any way to save game data? Kicking myself right now for not backing it up, if there is anyway it can be done please let me know.


DaveSimonH

If the HDD is dead, which it sounds like based on your description, then unfortunately the data is gone, unless you either have an active PS+ subscription (with saves set to upload) or saves backed up to USB stick. If it is the HDD though, then replacing it should get the PS4 back up and running again at least. You just need a 2.5" SATA HDD or SSD, an official controller & USB cable and the 'console reinstallation' file on a FAT32 format USB stick (file download and guide is on the [**Sony site**](https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/hardware/ps4/system-software/). It'll be the 2nd blue download button, file should be approx 1GB in size (if its about half that, you've got the wrong file).


Hemzovicho

Is it normal if my ps4 slim beeps one beep from time to time after replacing the Hard drive? Especially when I turn it off, it beeps before shutting off!


Leaky-Pocket

I have PS4 remote play set up on my MacBook Pro (High Sierra), and would like to be able to play with a wireless controller. It works fine if the controller is connected to my Mac through USB, but for some reason I am unable to get it to work wirelessly. Connecting the controller through Bluetooth isn’t the issue, however once it’s connected it still doesn’t work at all unless plugged in. Has anyone run into this issue before? I found many people with similar problems online but still haven’t found a solution that works. Thanks for help.


Antihero89

I don't have a PS5, a potent PC, or an Xbox, but I'm itching to play Elden Ring. Can anyone tell me how good Elden Ring's experience is on the PS4 Pro? And regardless of Elden Ring, do you guys find that swapping the hard drive to an SSD makes a big difference? Any good guides on how to do this without losing my data if I don't have a paid online account?


DaveSimonH

I spent about 120-130hrs total playing 'Elden Ring' on the base PS4, and while it may not be the best platform to play the game its certainly playable. I'd say performance felt similar to 'Bloodborne' & 'Dark Souls 3' (not surprising with it being the same game engine). As **Internutt's** links indicate, you can backup your saves, screenshots & video clips with a USB stick, or do a full backup & restore of game installs, profiles etc with a USB HDD. I did the latter with my PS4, it was only a 640GB USB HDD but I was able to backup most of my games, then restore it onto the SSD I installed (a 1TB Crucial MX500). Using an SSD internally generally improves loading times (usually shaves of 1/3, up to 1/2 sometimes), it made the general PS4 UI feel less sluggish (vs stock HDD) and can help with textures loading in quicker in some games (LOD). DigitalFoundry have done 3 separate videos/articles on PS4 & PS4 Pro SSD upgrades (from [**2016**](https://www.eurogamer.net/digitalfoundry-2016-is-it-worth-upgrading-your-ps4-with-an-ssd), [**later 2016**](https://www.eurogamer.net/digitalfoundry-2016-ps4-pro-ssd-upgrade-does-sata-3-make-a-difference-9) & [**2020**](https://www.eurogamer.net/digitalfoundry-2020-8tb-ps4-pro-storage-upgrade-tested).Those should give a general idea of what to expect and to add to those, here are a few games I tested (in late 2020, with version numbers), loading from in game menu to the same save loaded: No Man's Sky (v3.13) * HDD time 1m47.56 * SSD 1m19.56s Spider-man 2018 (v1.19) * HDD 32.83s * SSD 18.41s Last of Us p2 (v1.07) * HDD time 61.18s * SSD 40.81s Death Stranding (v1.12) * HDD 66.19s * SSD 36.81s Also an option, if you are planning on getting a PS5, you could use an SSD external via USB enclosure as 'extended storage' drive. You'd lose a little load time (the DF articles above have a few internal vs USB comparisons), but if/when you got a PS5 the USB enclosure could be moved over and you could immediately play games from the drive (ie no need to reformat, download & reinstall games). Not a bad option, given the PS5 only has 667GB of usable storage, it would allow you to leave that space for PS5 only.


Internutt

You can back up your saves doing: https://manuals.playstation.net/document/gb/ps4/settings/backup.html Or https://manuals.playstation.net/document/gb/ps4/settings/data_system.html SSD will give you slightly faster loading times, but you are still bottlenecked by the PS4 itself. Elden Ring runs fine on PS4. It was only ever Cyberpunk that had issues.


tiredpidgeon02

Help!, I've had a HDR compatible tv for the last 4 years and it has worked amazing up until recently, one day it just didn't rendered the colors correctly, it looks washed up and if I turn HDR off it looks opaque, and it's kind of bothering me, I've already tried everything, unplug/replug, restoring settings back to default on both the console and tv, messing around with the settings but nothing really happens, and while it's not a big issue, it still bothers me with games that are HDR compatible, any help or tips?


spookye36guy

Anybody else having worse and worse internet connection? It's been in the same spot for 4 years with no issues. About a month ago it started randomly disconnecting from the WiFi here and there. Now I can't stay connected for more than 2 minutes. I've rebuilt the database, reset default settings, tried different DNS, tried opening my console to DMZ on the router, reset the router, restarted the PS4 obviously and still nothing. Anybody figure this out?


turbocomppro

So I got a used PS4 with only the power cable. I ordered a PS4 controller off eBay but it's gonna take like a week to get here. I have a USB bluetooth dongle, and an XBOX One (bluetooth) controller. Can I make this work with what I have currently?


ROCuevas95

This be just a curious question. If I have a physical game disc, and I buy a version of the same game that reads Digital Deluxe Edition, will my game upgrade and still use disc or will I own the game twice?


Internutt

You will own the game twice. You can either use the digital deluxe content with disc or digital copy


ROCuevas95

Ah ok. Thank you for the response. Never really understood. Always thought that it just upgrade.


StewieJustSaidThat_0

In the last month, My Ps4 slim has started to freeze repeatedly and more often and crashes easily. I started to receive the ¨error in downloading the application" message whenever i started online games like Destiny 2 or Rdr2. The first time i chose to ´rebuild the database´ it started running smoothly again for a small time, however the online games soon stopped working entirely and i would be forced to close the app or restart the ps4. I have dealt with the blue light of death and have been able to exit that mode, but the console has frozen when trying to start up and repeatedly received the ¨error in the system software¨message for a short time. I have since then rebuilt the database several times, as well as all other options in safe mode, including a factory reset. I´ve done prior research and i believe i need to replace the Hard drive, but I´m not entirely sure and would appreciate any advice before i spend money on something i might not need to.


DaveSimonH

No-one will be able to tell you for sure, but based on your description replacing the HDD will likely fix it. It *could* be another fault, but worst case scenario you could reuse the replacement HDD in a USB 3.0 enclosure as a backup drive for a PC/Laptop.

InterestingBluejay34

Hey guys , I have a pretty common issue with my controller. It would not get connected to my PS. The light blinks blue and turns off. Controller doesn’t have any physical issues and connects to my phone immediately. Tried to restart the ps holding the power bottom until it beeps twice (didn’t help), tried to restart controller on a back using a pin(didn’t help), used all the usb cables that I have( didn’t help), pressed the PS bottom with “share” (didn’t help) Is there any other way I can try to connect my controller? Thank you


im-charming

PS4 “BLOB” boot issue but functional? I received a used PS4. It booted fine when I first set it up, I played a game, saved progress, then the PS4 showed “blue lights of death” after turning off the machine, and trying to turn back on. I tried all 6 options through Safe Mode. The machine always goes to Safe Mode no problem, but won’t always boot regularly. Could this be a hardware issue? I’ve been able to do everything on the machine (play games, save, go online) no problem, so I’m really confused what the actual issue is. The thing boots regularly sometimes. Does anyone else have a machine that doesn’t boot regularly all of the time? Is this just how old PS4s are? I’ve checked many threads here and there doesn’t seem to be a conclusive answer to what the problem is.


Internutt

Could just be an HDD issue. Those are easily replaced but as you said there is no conclusive answer given your issue can be caused by a few things.


oviraptor12

Audio options for monitors? Just bought a monitor for my ps4 (and m1 air). Good monitor but built in speakers are trash. What are my options for connecting to external speakers? The ports I have are vga, DisplayPort, HDMI and audio in.


TheDragonSlayingCat

The best solution is to get an A/V receiver. Modern AVRs will process audio, and act as an HDMI switcher for your display. Then just add some speakers and speaker cables, and you’re golden. Or plug a headset into the AVR. Make sure any AVR you buy supports HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2, or else you’ll be stuck with 1080p resolution. If you plan to upgrade to a PS5, you might want to buy one that supports HDMI 2.1, but those will be more expensive.

I am seeking help with downloading red dead redemption on disc as my PlayStation will not let me. I have been trying to redownload the game for the past week from the disc i bought but my will stop downloading after it reaches a certain amount of gb. i will start downloading the data disc first and it will go through but after i start downloading the rest from the play disc it will stop at exactly 23.182gb and wont go further no matter what. ive tried rebuilding the database from the safe mode twice, tried downloading it without internet, restarting the playstation, and tried with an ethernet cable but no matter what it will not go above 23.182gb on the play disc and around 67gb overall. i have more than enough space and do not know what to do. if you have any tips please let me know


DaveSimonH

It may just be a fault, or damage on your play disc. Do you have any friends locally with a copy you could borrow? In theory, once it's installed you should be able to use your play disc, as it's just acting as a DRM check at that point. If you bought the game recently, then you're better off returning it.


Brandon_2535

Anyone else having an issue with adding funds to their account? It just keeps saying that there was an error and to try again later. I also noticed that the network icon on my system has a red symbol above it, but I'm playing games online just fine.


Internutt

https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/support/error-codes/ps4/e-8210604a/ Unless there is a current Network issue, there is no real troubleshooting outside of the above article. If payments keep failing you'll need to redeem PSN Wallet vouchers as a work around to make your purchase.


Either_Setting1163

So my PS4 keeps over heating the only real issue I see is the black tabs are falling off and whatever adhesive I'm supposed to use isn't known to me so I'd like to know whats the issue caused by these black tabs, if I need to replace or if I can use these again and if I can what is the method of reattachment also a generally break down of the issue would be appreciated. Thanks fellow Redditors


Substantial_Dog4474

My ps4 is getting random black screen dropouts. My ps4 sometimes displays a black screen for a second, then the picture returns but I don't know what to do with this.


Internutt

Maybe replace the HDMI cable

Spirited_Beautiful84

I got suspended from ym account because my brother called someone the n word on red dead, so I was wondering if anybody knew a site to appeal that


Internutt

What makes you think you can appeal that? "My brother did it" isn't an excuse. Even if Sony believed that they wouldn't care. Your account broke ToS and was rightly punished in line with those same ToS. In future don't let your brother use your account.


Spirited_Beautiful84

Sorry man I was just asking


Internutt

If your brother did do it and is under 18, tell your parents what he did so they can discuss the matter with him. That way it won't happen again. In the meantime put a lock on your user profile so he can't use it again.


Either_Setting1163

Are you serious? Your acting like it's a big deal. It isn't. And even if it aggression isn't an appropriate way to act.


DaveSimonH

You think using racial slurs isn't a big deal? I don't think Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo would agree with you. A suspension was warranted.


RuiRonas

Does anyone knows if its possible to connect a PS to PC with a USB and make the audio go through?


Internutt

If you connect the PS4's HDMI directly to a monitor with sound, yes. Or alternatively if you have a sound system and a basic or PRO (not slim) you can connect an aux cable to the console. Or you can remote play to your PC. You can't use a USB cable for any of the above. The PS4 wasn't designed with that functionality


RuiRonas

Its actually for the PS5, i thought the theory was the same


Weary-Effective-7246

I want to play bloodborne at its first version to mess around and exploit some bugs. If I buy it from the ps store online will it automatically download at the latest version? How do I avoid this?


Internutt

Yes, the Playstation Store will only ever download the most up to date version of the game. If you want to play an un-updated version you need the original release game disc (later releases will likely be patched) and to keep your PS4 offline. No guarantees it will let you play 100% offline without patches though.


Weary-Effective-7246

Thank you

D-Valkyrie

Here's a weird one. Any game I have downloaded on my PS4 worked normally. Then my friend said if I was running out of memory I should get a portable hard drive so I did. The system said to never unplug. Okay I can do that. However now EVERY single app and game keeps coming up "This application will shut down in 15 minutes because the license can't be verified." It never closes but it's like everyone half an hour as I'm playing it pops up and it is very distracting (gave me a heart attack during RE: Village) so why does this happen and how do I stop it? Also I tried that re-verifying option in settings. It didn't work. I'm afraid of unplugging the drive because well the system said not to.


Internutt

External HDD has nothing to do with your license error message. That's to do with your Primary console. Make sure your PS4 is still your Primary console. If it is then re-activate it and then restore licenses.


D-Valkyrie

Okay I'm old. I'll admit it. How do I do the primary thing?


Internutt

Settings > account management > activate as Primary PS4 Once you do that/or deactivate and reactivate then restore licenses afterwards


D-Valkyrie

Thank you.

PS4 doesn’t wanna load certain games through disc Lately, I wanted to play call of duty black ops 3 on my playstation, so I did but not a pleasant result, the game had an error of it being dirty or damaged, so I cleaned it and made sure thee were no damages whatsoever, I tried again just to get met with the same message for some reason, I tried it with other games and it had the same result with another game but not any of the others, it happened with cod ghost aswell but different, you were able to play atleast one match but trying to play another would just do the dirty or damaged message, I tried it with every game I had and nothing, for some reason, it doesn’t accept 2 of my cod games, everything else with my playstation does not have a problem, the disk drive is clean and idk what to do, does anybody know how to make my disc drive accept my cod games?


TheDragonSlayingCat

Try cleaning the drive using a cleaning DVD or Blu-ray. If that doesn’t work, then the drive will need service.


MineCrafter1996

PS4 Not automatically ejecting or taking in discs My PS4 slim had a disc stuck in it. It wouldn't eject it and so I used the manual release underneath the console where you turn the screw hole until the disc slides out. The problem is I have to turn that screw a smidget clockwise in order for it to take a disc back in. Then it works just fine until I have to eject the disc. The disc will not eject and every time I want to eject it I have to use the manual release. The system software is up to date, the disc is clean and I've tried multiple discs. Does anyone know of a way I can make it work normally again without trying a hard reset ?


TheDragonSlayingCat

A hard reset will do nothing to fix hardware problems. It sounds like the drive is broken and needs to be serviced; contact Sony support in your country.


frank_the_tank999

My PlayStation just won't connect to the internet. Any other device connects fine and my PS4 works just fine when I connect to my hotspot (I would just be using that however my service is too bad). So far I've restarted/ unplugged my PS4 and router. I've set up a network connection in settings multiple times always trying the DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 because it apparently helps. I've booted into safe mode and from there rebuilt the database as well as tried to restore to default settings. I am clueless about what I should do and I've tried some hacks from YouTube, which were mentioned above and nothing has worked so far. Again, like I said, the PS4 connects just fine to my hotspot and any other devices in my house connect to the wifi.

Is there any way to remove the drive from a seagate external harddrive and put it inside a ps4?


TheDragonSlayingCat

Only if that drive uses SATA internally, and there’s no guarantee that’s the case. And even then, the drive has to be laptop-sized; full-sized hard disks won’t fit inside the PS4.


VampirCheese

Hi, I own a physical copy of resident evil 3 (plus resistance) , but I'm unable to start re3 and I would like to know if it happened with anyone else. When I try to start the game nothing happen and I still on the menu, but when I try Resistance it works and download the game and it starts normally, both share the same disk. The re3 was working fine in other 2 consoles. I played Re3 on share play before. Only appears one "resident evil 3" that can't be open and only shows re3 to download and resistance to download. I think it was supposed to show two types of re3. Any thoughts?


Financial-Fun9531

Hey, I really need some assistance. I keep having this problem occur to me multiple times. Whenever ľ'm playing a game, my Input and Output would randomly change to Headset Connected To Controller". I don't have anything connected to it. I use a fifine mic to talk to people. Is there anything I can do to fix it?


TheDragonSlayingCat

There’s probably something stuck inside the controller’s headphone jack. If you can’t get it out, or if you can’t find anything, then you probably have to replace the controller.


Financial-Fun9531

Thank you for you response. I've figured out the reason. It is because my audio jack was dirty, so I just used Hydrogen Peroxide and am Ear Tip and cleaned it.

What are some good PS4 games for someone who has only played Switch? Their favorite game is Zelda BotW. Preferred something with minimal gore


TheDragonSlayingCat

There is nothing quite like Zelda: BotW for the PS4. That said, I can recommend Ys VIII and IX, which are both excellent Zelda-like action-adventure-RPG titles. Both games are on PS+ Extra.

Zelda is its own thing so that's a hard one. I would say Skyrim


blackdawn89

Error CE-34878-0 Lately, I've been getting this error too many times while playing Witcher 3. Also it happened four times between September and October while playing Sekiro. During September I played Persona 5 Royal a lot and I didn't experience it once, while also playing Elden Ring it only happened once in August (that was actually the first time it happened). So, may I ask, could you know where the source of this issue may be located? I've restarted my ps4 in safe mode several times and it hasn't fixed the issue at all. Also, is it possible that this problem takes place because of overheating? Sony doesn't consider a possible solution to clean your ps4 on the solutions that they give for this error. And also, last question? Have any of you have actually been able to fix this error? I've ran into several Reddit threads with people experiencing the same error and not a single one of them have said that they were able to fix it, even if they tried every single one of the solutions that they were given. I'm actually concerned that my ps4 is already messed up and there's not a single thing that can be done to fix it. So it would be good to know if any of you have actually been able to fix the error. Thank you so much.

Hey is Ghost of Tsushima no longer available in ps plus extra? I was talking with tech support since I was having a license issue with Ghost of Tushima on the other accounts that dont have psplus but play the games since the same console is the Primary console, and they tell me the reason we cant no longer play it on other accounts is because the game is no longer on Ps Plus extra. Is that true? I can still se it on the store as available in extra.

The account that is subscribed to PS+ Extra should: 1. Restore licenses in account settings 2. Make sure your PS4 is still the Primary PS4 3. If you are no longer subscribed to PS+ Extra or Premium you will need to renew your subscription to PS+ Extra/Premium. If the above is true and nobody can play the game, not even the account subscribed to PS+ Extra then yes it was removed.


BearmanNova

Done all that, and the account subscribed to ps plus extra can play it.


Internutt

The good news it wasn't removed from the service. Go back to the other accounts and try launching the game now.

Hi, recently i've found out about this and havent found the solution yet. When I use my PS4 Pro everything works just fine. Problem comes when I try to watch something on youtube. When I open the app, suddenly my controller stops working - i think the controller is fine, but it just doesn't react when i'm trying to watch YT. The only button working on Youtube app is the PLAYSTATION BUTTON. Did anyone experience the same issue? Have you found a solution? Thanks for any advice!


fangstarfang

Are the "Infamous Second Son" or "DREAMER" soundtracks on the ps4 store downloadable to an external USB drive? I don't see an option to do so

Several of them can, I did it with the free Joe Devers Lone Wolf soundtrack that’s free

I do not currently have a PS5 so I'm curious about the games with the free upgrades that have been developed for PS5, Forbidden West, Spiderman Miles Morales, etc. If I purchase these games to play on my PS4 and eventually get a 5 would the upgrade be the same as purchasing the PS5 version? Ray tracing and the upped frame rates and all the things that make the PS5 version better? Would I get these benefits when I upgrade or would it just be like and "up scaled" version of the PS4 game with no true differences? Thanks in advance for the help.


Internutt

A free PS5 upgrade is exactly what it says on the tin. You aren't being advertised PS4 PRO enhancements, you are being advertised an upgrade to the PS5 version of the game.


lilburd34

So why would anyone purchase the PS5 version of a game? Physical copies, I understand having the case and disc for collection reasons but digitally, it's about $10 cheaper usually. Why would I purchase HZD PS5 for $70 when I can get the PS4 version for $60 and just spend the time upgrading?


DaveSimonH

I'd say the only reason to pick up the PS5 versions would be to avoid downloading the game, as any PS4 discs would only contain the PS4 version. So people with slower Internet or restrictive data caps. Or I suppose, also people that *must have* the PS5 case sleeves... Everyone else is better off getting the cheaper PS4 disc, and then downloading the PS5 version.


Internutt

Because Sony hope people are stupid and don't do research


lilburd34

Fair enough. I didn't know, which is why I'm here lol. Thanks for the info.


Financial-Fun9531

I keep having this problem occur to me multiple times. Whenever ľ'm playing a game, my Input and Output would randomly change to Headset Connected To Controller". I don't have anything connected to it. I use a fifine mic to talk to people. Is there anything I can do to fix it?


Assistance_Salty

My only game is Skyrim and I’m bored of it, are there any other fun games for PS4 you guy’s recommend?


TheDragonSlayingCat

Here are the PS4 games that I consider to be the very best of the console: - Bloodborne - Dragon Quest XI S - Elden Ring - Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut - God of War - God of War: Ragnarök (play this after GoW) - Hades - Horizon Zero Dawn - The Last of Us Remastered - The Last of Us Part II (play this after TLoU Remastered) - Persona 5 Royal - Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - Spider-Man - The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Complete Edition Many of these games are included with a PS+ Extra subscription. If you can only play one of the above, make it TLoU Remastered.


_offbrandcereal_

Hello! For a bit of reference, I purchased the season pass DLC for Dragon Quest Builders 2 three days ago, and it won't show up. I've tried restarting my PS4, restoring my data lisences, choosing to deactivate then reactivate the PS4 as my primary system, but nothing is working. There's no section for it in my library, and it doesn't allow me to re-download the content when I go to the store. Aside from checking my account settings and verifying that yes, I did purchase the content, there's no evidence of the DLC having been purchased besides the money that's no longer in my bank account. :') I've been trying to get it fixed for about an hour, and the support line won't open for another 40 or so minutes. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Internutt

Are you playing a disc game or are both the game and DLC purchased digitally from the same account? DLC is region locked so a disc cannot register foreign DLC


_offbrandcereal_

Disk! Not foreign, though. And ty for the quick reply, I've only ever used a megathread once or twice. Wasn't sure if people actually read these, so thank you for checking these and helping people out, man. ;v; Would purchasing the game digitally help?


Internutt

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/ps4/215335-dragon-quest-builders-2/data It's always the first thing to double check. The CUSA code/age rating should match your account region. If it does then next step is to restore licenses and then re-launch the game to see if that has applied the DLC. Settings > account management > restore licenses.


_offbrandcereal_

Wait, no, I found the issue. I didn't know you had to download season pass items manually. I don't know if I should be thankful that this wasn't a more serious issue with my system, or embarrassed that it was such a simple fix that stumped me for over an hour. Haha. Still, thank you so much for your time and help! I hope you have a good one.


Internutt

Yeah. Season Passes are preorders for content not yet released so when you purchase a Season pass it gives you the related content at bo additional cost. So when it's released you just download it to use it.


TraditionMammoth9679

I’m looking for a monitor for my ps4 because I use a tv and it can’t even handle 60fps. So I’m looking for a cheap one for under £100, surely there’s some good ones out there for under that price? It just has to be able to run a 60fps game minimum. I know the budget is so low but I’m not looking for anything special


TheDragonSlayingCat

At that budget level, you’ll have to look on eBay for people divesting of their old 1080p monitors at bargain bin prices.


xmine7_

Hi, i was looking to get an acc back which was made from my sister dad that unfortunately passed away a few years back and i'd be glad to keep it with me, i lost access to it and i have no informations, i tried to contact support if there was a way i could access it back but they said they are not authorized to help me since i'm not the owner, should i try to contact again or would it be possible to reset the password if i can find the email? :(


Internutt

If you don't know anything about the account, such as email, password, etc its lost. You can't get someone else's account from Support so there is nothing more that can be done.


xmine7_

I see, thanks for telling me, but i could have a chance if i know the email?


Internutt

Not quite. You'd also need access into said email inbox in order to get the password reset email.


xmine7_

Ah understood thx


Yookeis

Does anvone know if there's a USB or something I can plug into a ps4 l'm wanting to buy ( used) that will tell me if there is anything wrong with it?


TheDragonSlayingCat

No. You will have to examine it yourself.


Salt_Contest_8870

I am worried about my hard drive because my ps4 was in rest mode and it was downloading something and finished earlier, and I accidently unplugged my ps4 with it all still on, could it damage my Hard drive


Internutt

It can damage any computer equipment. No telling if anything has messed up until you switch it back on again.


Salt_Contest_8870

Ok thank you


No_Noise_4371

I've been using razer kraken ultimate headphones on my ps4 for over a year now and recently I've had a problem where the microphone wont work. I must be a problem with my ps4 because when I plugged the headset into a PC and another PS4 both of which worked I could hear myself when testing the microphone so it has to be my ps4 that's the problem but I don't know what's wrong with it.


calltarneedazan

Sorry if noob question, but can you Share Play with a disk copy or just digital games?


Internutt

Both


calltarneedazan

Awesome thanks 🙏

Can I get banned for saying "You're are scared"?

Maybe. Its pretty strict.


TheAdvert99

Has anyone figured out a different use for the aux port on the PS4 Slim, other than the camera?


CauliflowerKitchen64

I need friends, psn is slushy_huddle3


Objective_Debate5059

Is there any reason a good used condition PS4 wouldn't be able to download and run Fortnite without sounding like a jet taking off? I know they're old systems, but I had no problems with my former PS4 and I'm 2/2 failing from a used shop I just bought from.


TheAdvert99

Sounds like a PS4 Pro? This is common for early pro’s. There are YouTube video that walkthrough how to deep clean the console.


Objective_Debate5059

Nope, my first system and both replacements are originals

Hey guys, there is a Campaign on the PS App, it’s call “The Great Pie Day Challenge 2023” and the object is “Put down the pie and play any PS4 or PS5 game you like”. I having been playing games (Mainly Fall guys and Monster Hunter World) every single day but this campaign is still incomplete. Any one knows how to complete this


Comfortable-Chef-340

PS4 LANGUAGE Does Anyone know if it's possible to change language of the game bought on account from other region? I'm Polish and created Turkish account to see if I can get games cheaper on PS Store, as well I did(with some problems with payment), but in the game I can't pick Polish language, even though there is Polish dubbing if you buy it on Polish account.


lMisanthropel

That’s the annoying part of Play Station’s Region Store, almost every game in the store will only provide the store region’s language. You need to check the game’s description when you’re purchasing in specific region store, to see if they provide the language you want or not, since Play Station sell games in a lot of different versions. For example, in US region store, games will only provide English/Spanish Version. So if I want to play the game in Japanese, I will need to create a Japanese region account in order to play the Japanese version.

ajfilmnfx

My PS4 has started exhibiting these weird “audio pops” when used on my new TV. Music/audio will cut out for half a second, and then resume. This happens repeatedly every 2-3 minutes during gameplay, music, and videos. Strangely, this only occurs w the PS4, not the entire TV. Running audio checks on the TV and watching videos using an input other than the PS4 results in perfect audio. I changed the audio settings of the TV to match the PS4 (Linear PCM), and that helped reduce the popping, but didn’t stop it entirely. I’ve also tried changing HDMI cords and that hasn’t fixed it. So far the only temporary fix is to remove the cord, clean it thoroughly, and use compressed air to clean both the PS4 and TV hdmi ports. This fixes it for about 4 days and then the audio starts popping again. Any help would be greatly appreciated! This never happened with my old TV, so it’s very frustrating.


AmadClownPrince

Will cleaning the fan increase performance ? So, I have an ps4 and it is something like 6-7 years old. These days I am playing Thw Witcher 3 and having problems like slow rendering, fps drops. Also, not mentioning the jet plane sound.


TheDragonSlayingCat

No.


Numb_Ron

So, I bought a physical copy of Nier Automata Game of YoRHa Edition and used the DLC code that comes with it on the PS4 store while the game was updating. A screen with the contents of the code showed up and asked to confirm the redemption, I pressed continue and an error popped up saying to try again later. Then I tried the code again later but this time it says it was redeemed already.. but I have none of the DLC or other extra content from the code.. if I go to the game's addons in the library it tells me to buy the DLC.. What went wrong? Have I permanently lost access to the content of the code and is there a way for me to get it back?


Internutt

Settings > account management > restore licenses Then check add ons again


Numb_Ron

I just did that and it still says I have to buy the DLC... ...even tried redeeming the code again but it still says it's been redeemed already..


Internutt

Sounds like it has been successfully redeemed then. You can check your recent transactions to confirm that. Also, ince the game is installed launch it and see if the DLC triggers.


Numb_Ron

Nope, got nothing on the recent transactions and have none of the content in-game nor the dynamic theme. I guess I'll just have to accept that error screwed me over and stole my dlc...


Internutt

Contact support as your next step. See if they can investigate the code and your issues with it.


bulbul_93

Game suggestions: Mario like game which are free Basically I want some good free fun games in which are no-brainer. Note: Please don't recommend Rocket league.


TheDragonSlayingCat

No such thing exists on the PS4. The PS5 comes bundled with one such game.


get-derped

I was just about to buy a nice wireless keyboard when by luck I found out it isn't compatible with PS4. I've had wireless compatibility issues bite me in the ass before with Bluetooth headsets not working on the PS4. There don't seem to be many big brands in this niche and claims of compatibility on marketplaces like AliExpress and Amazon aren't the pinnacle of reliability. Are there particular specs or lists for peripherals that work with the PS4?


TheDragonSlayingCat

The only peripherals that work are peripherals that are 100% compliant with the USB HID spec, which is something most vendors don’t advertise. FWIW, Apple’s keyboards work great with the PS4, either wired or wireless.


get-derped

Thank you. It's good to know what to look for. Even if it's hard to spot.


-Rasmus

Thanks to the few people who suggestted problems for my ps4 overheating. I solved the problem. I applied to much thermalpaste to the cpu. It’s now purring like a kitten


AnnualWild6123

If I switch from ps4 to ps5 and transfer all my data using a cable, will I keep all my data, including psplus games?


Internutt

Yes. Obviously your purchased/ redeemed games are irrelevant to the transfer as they are tied to your account and not your console. Your on console data will transfer over.


FireYigit

Why does opening UNO give me a black screen?


Internutt

If the app is crashing then delete/reinstall


FireYigit

No it just gives a black screen it doesn’t open, I already deleted reinstalled multiple times


Green_Top_Hat

Has anyone used "MiniTool" to recover their data? I plugged the hard drive from a broken PS4 into my computer and used that program to scan for files, and it found 785 files, which is 601.78 GB worth of data. Now I hit a pay wall, and it wants me to pay $70 to recover the data. I'm not spending that money unless I know it is a secure way of retrieving the data. Any help or info is always appreciated. :)


DaveSimonH

If the PS4 is broken, then that data is gone, sorry. Even if Minitool was able to recover the data from the HDD, it wouldn't be usable as PS4 HDD data is encrypted. And even a 2nd PS4 wouldn't help, as using that HDD with another PS4, the only option is to format/wipe the drive. If you have an active PS+ subscription, your saves may be backed up to Sony's servers.


Green_Top_Hat

Even if I would try to move all those files onto a USB stick and then into a new Playstation?


DaveSimonH

If all you have is the HDD out of a broken PS4, then unfortunately the data is already lost. Due to the encryption, the data will be unreadable. The only possible option would be to have the console repaired, and then access the data by reinserting the HDD. Although even with a skilled technician, depending on the fault a repair may not be possible.


Green_Top_Hat

It's the blue light of death, so I guess it's gone :( Thanks for the info!


ACuriousWitnall

Its fucking fruitless posting questions here, 90% of the questions asked won't be answered, but for the fifth fucking time I'll ask mine again. I have my messages set to friends only. I still get randomly messaged by other people somehow. Is there another setting i need to tick to ensure that I no longer get messages from random ever again? Thanks for a reply if any, Jesus Christ (may as well be a prayer lol).


FireYigit

Might be that they’re your friends’ friends but i don’t really know


ACuriousWitnall

Weird, never thought of that, but if that's the case, then whatever. The options seem a little misleading then.


FireYigit

Could be.


i-will-not-be-quiet

white solid light on my controllers. can’t get past opening page. what does this mean? is my ps4 trashed?


Internutt

Reset and re-pair with the PS4


R_BIT615

Update 7.51? I have had my hand me down PS4 for a long while and I wanted to plug it back in because I had not been using it for awhile and when I start it it tells me to put in a usb drive with an update so I went out and figured it out and did it but it is giving me an error and then it restarts and does it again can anyone help?


Internutt

Could be a failing HDD if it keeps happening


thorjustice1

Hi there! I've got a couple questions. The second one maybe being more PS5 focused but thought I'd include it here anyway: 1) tl;dr: My PS4 dualshock controllers are unresponsive to my PS4, but a regular keyboard works. Do I need to send my PS4 to a repair shop? A summer ago, my PS4 was unresponsive to any of my PS4 dualshock controllers and I tried as many troubleshooting options as I could think of. But I know they are not broken because they work flawlessly on my PC when wired and wireless using the 8BitDo third party Bluetooth receiver. Since I wasn't going to be using my PS4 often after that summer, I put off trying to troubleshoot for over a year until recently. These options did not work: - Using multiple official PS4 USB wires to connect to both ports of my PS4 with multiple official dualshock PS4 controllers. - Poking the reset hole in the back of each controller and trying to connect both wired and wirelessly. - Unpugging and plugging in the PS4. Restarting from fully off and from rest mode. Soft and hard resetting. Alas, the ONLY thing that was responsive was using a basic dell wired keyboard. I was able to navigate the menu and update my PS4 to the latest version/software, and log back into PS Network. Then I went into settings and devices, deleted the dualshock controllers from the PS4's memory and tried to reconnect. Still, the controllers do not work. 2) My brother has his own PS4 and an external HD with some PS4 games stored (and I don't). Can we both store all our PS4 games and saves together on the same external HD? We both recently bought a PS5 and are going to set it up soon and put both our accounts on it. Can both accounts access our PS4 games on the external HD?
