PS4 beeps, flashes blue light for a second and then turns off

The issue is:

- I turn on the PS4

- It beeps

- The blue light turns on for a second or two

- It turns off completely

- The PS4 is now completely irresponsible

- I need to plug out the power and then plug it back in

- We're back to step 1

Has anyone faced this issue before? Is it something i can fix myself?

Try taking the ps4 and unplug power cord. ... to make it work was remove the power cord and switch it on, it will beep with a light and then die (without the cord) then when u start it up hold down the boot button till it beeps twice and it will rebuild the database

I have similar problem and I tried replacing power supply and using the washer trick. Neither worked. Sony will fix out of warranty for $99+taxes or I can go to the local repair shop which they quoted $60+ with diag. I might just send it to Sony.
