User questions about fixing PlayStation problems are quite common these days when people spend more time at home playing their favorite games. Want to learn the most effective solutions to popular PlayStation issues?

How do I get my PlayStation 4 turned on?

Check the television HDMI port and cable carefully to make sure they’re undamaged. Meanwhile, unplug all cords and keep your console rested for 20-30 minutes. Booting in safe mode also works well to fix the power-on issue.

How to fix not working PlayStation audio?

Check the HDMI cable and change the port, for example, to HDMI 2. Next, adjust the settings for Audio Output and reboot the console. You can also update the PS system software or make factory settings reset. Some users plug in headphones as a temporary workaround.

What are the best PSN troubleshooting methods?

First of all, check if the problem is related to the PSN outage. If the network is working, restart the modem and the PlayStation itself. A good alternative is to reconnect the console via an Ethernet cable.

My PlayStation 4 gets hot too. How to cool it down quickly?

The most reliable way to cool the PS down is to turn it off and keep it rested for at least 30-40 minutes. You can use this time to clean the device from dust. Pay special attention to fans. After that, provide powerful airflow to avoid further overheating.
