Tv starts to flicker while Connecting Ps4

I just got this new smart 4k tv, it seems to work fine all around, but I want to use it for gaming mainly, using my ps4. I plugged in my ps4 HDMI to tv, tried ALL ports, switched cables, outlets, etc. I'm pretty tech savvy, and yet I don't know what is going on.. while ps4 is powered on, light, dim, light dim, and actually just showed my console dashboard for a split second then went out. All cords are seated properly, yes. Any help?

Is this a good question?

Partly correct, I had to access my ps4 safe mode. My 4k tv can't upscale the ps4 so it freaks out trying to. Going into safe mode, restarting, fix resolution, done. Magic.

I'm assuming your house was built after 1970 and the electrical outlets are all grounded according to code. If so then we can rule out an electrical outlet issue, next I do a factory reset of all settings, then update firmware.
