Description

We wouldn't say the PS4 Pro's design is a complete copy of the original PS4's, there are a lot of similarities – the first being the decision to keep the console a flat parallelogram.

You won't find an HDMI input port here like you would on the Xbox One, but Sony's workaround to its cable conundrum, PlayStation Vue, is an arguably effective one. If the indicator light only blinks white, or if the blue light does not transition to solid white, the console is frozen and needs troubleshooting.

A bad HDMI port. This is VERY common. The HDMI ports on the original PS4 consoles are factory defective. They are a very bad design and, in my opinion, all of them will fail at some point... they are that bad. Usually it's pretty easy to tell if your PS4 HDMI port is bad because you can see the small copper pins inside that will likely be bent, out of place, or missing altogether. Also, many times the metal outer portion of the port will be bent as well. This will cause the cable to not fit into the port snugly. While the ports on the PS4 Slim and Pro are much better even those consoles sometimes need HDMI port repairs as well. You should also note that Sony's PS4 Pro system has a few deficiencies in the home entertainment department: particularly in not having an Ultra HD Blu-ray player installed. If that's important to you, you might need to look elsewhere. Keep reading for our full review of the PS4 Pro. Plus, as we pointed out in the PlayStation 4 Slim review, the controller can also switch seamlessly between Bluetooth and wired mode when it's connected to the system via USB cable. While that might not sound like a huge addition, for a pro gamer it can mean the difference between a win (and a pot of esports prize money) or a loss. Now, it's worth noting that should you want to see what games in 4K HDR look like, you're going to need a 4K HDR TV - your old 1080p screen probably won't see a benefit outside of a few extra frames. Is it worth buying a PS4 Pro without a 4K TV? The process of testing the hard drive and HDMI components is advanced and if you don’t feel comfortable with opening up your PS4 console and don't have access to the tools and parts required, it might be better to let an expert do it for you.

While this repair at first looks like it shouldn't be very hard to fix yourself, it actually is a very difficult to impossible thing for someone to fix it who has no soldering experience. Many people think they can just go buy a heat gun from a hardware store and use that to remove it. Unfortunately, this just leads to melted components and damaged circuit traces on the motherboard. Instead of saving money, failed DIY repair attempts like this usually end up costing 25-50% more to fix them than one that has not been tampered with.A faulty HDMI IC chip. This is the IC chip in the motherboard that processes the HDMI signal. When this chip burns out it will often cause the white light of death. Unfortunately, there is no good way to know if it's the chip that is bad. If the port looks good but you still get no signal and the white light of death then it could be the chip that is causing the problem. The only ways to know for sure is to have it professionally tested or to buy a working IC chip and replace the one on your PS4 to see if that fixes the problem. Does your PS4 turn on and show the white light but not show anything on the TV? This is what's known as the "white light of death" or WLOD. The bad news is that your PS4 is likely broken and in need of repair. The great news is that it can be fixed. First, let's look at a couple of things that you can try first to fix it yourself. PS4 White Light Troubleshooting If your HDMI cable plugs into any type of device between your console and the TV then you also need to consider that device to be a possible source of the problem. A great way to test it is to hook the PS4 HDMI cable straight into the TV. If it still doesn't work then you know that that device is not causing any problems with the signal. Electrical Storm or Lightning Storm. If you've recently experienced any large electrical storms or electrical surges that could have caused the WLOD for your PS4. What usually happens is the electrical surge goes from your TV right into the PS4 via the HDMI cable. This electrical surge will usually take out the IC chip but it can also cause problems with the port itself and/or some of the resistors and diodes around the port that send signals through to the TV. If any of them are damaged it can cause the white light of death. How Can I Get it Fixed?
