There are several potential reasons why a PlayStation 4 (PS4) console might not display an image on the TV, and the solution will depend on the specific cause of the issue. Here are some common causes of a PS4 no display issue and some possible solutions:
HDMI cable or port issue: If the HDMI cable or port on the TV or the PS4 is damaged or not functioning properly, it could cause a no display issue. To fix this issue, try using a different HDMI cable or testing the HDMI port on the TV or the PS4 with another device.
Incorrect video output settings: If the PS4’s video output settings are not set correctly, it could cause a no display issue. To fix this issue, go to the PS4’s settings menu and select “Sound and Screen,” then select “Video Output Settings.” Follow the on-screen instructions to ensure that the correct video output settings are selected.
Overheating: If the PS4 is overheating, it may shut down to prevent damage. To fix this issue, try letting the PS4 cool down, avoiding using it in direct sunlight or other hot environments, and avoiding using it for long periods of time without a break.
Hardware issue: If the PS4 has a hardware issue, it may cause a no display issue. To fix this issue, you may need to take the PS4 to a repair shop or contact the manufacturer for assistance.
If none of these solutions fix the issue, you may need to try a more advanced troubleshooting method such as resetting the PS4 to its default settings or performing a factory reset. Keep in mind that these steps can erase all data on the PS4, so it is important to back up any important files before attempting them.
