If you have ever connected your PS4 to a TV or monitor and saw that there is “no signal” or a blank screen, then you are aware of how frustrating it can be. But do you know what’s worse?! Fixing a PS4 with no HDMI signal might be an even more unpleasant experience. Thankfully, the problem on the PS4 can be rectified in a matter of minutes! It is important to bear in mind that the issue with the PS4 might be the result of a number of different circumstances, such as malfunctioning hardware, the erroneous selection of the HDMI input, and loose or broken connections.
Let’s have a look at some potential ways to fix the problem with your PS4!
Examine the HDMI Port
Check the interior of the port for any signs of damage or debris. If you find something that shouldn’t be there, you may get rid of it by blowing it out using compressed air. Take extra precautions to ensure that the port is not harmed throughout the procedure.
Examine the Status of the HDMI Connection
Check to verify that the HDMI cable is firmly inserted into both the console (PS4) and the television (TV). It is possible that you will have problems with “No signal” if your connection is shaky.
Restarting Your PS4
To shut down your PlayStation 4, press and hold the power button for no less than seven seconds to complete the process. Power off your PlayStation 4 and disconnect the HDMI wire from your television. Next, wait for a few minutes before reconnecting everything and turning on your PS4 again once it has been turned off.
Use the “Safe Mode”
Hold down the power button on your PlayStation 4 for at least seven seconds after it has been turned off. When you hear the second beep, you can let off the button.
Try to Use Another HDMI Cable
Even if the HDMI port seems to be working well, you should try a new HDMI cable. It’s possible that changing to a different cable will fix the problem.
