Why wont my ps4 show up on my tv?

My ps4 hasn't been working for two days. I have tried 3 different HDMI cables, two tv's and it still wont work. Safe mode isn't coming up but my tv does recognize its connected to a playstation. Their is also sound coming through my headphones when connected to my controller. The light shows itstarted properly (blue light then white light). what should I do?

When you say safe mode isn't coming up, have you attached your controller to the PS4 via a usb cable? As that is the only way to get safe mode to start.

Sounds like an HDMI port problem. This is very common with Ps4's, especially the older ones. Sometimes you can shine a flashlight into the port and see the bent pins. If the port looks good it can also be the encoder chip on the motherboard.

if it's the encoder chip how do we fix it?

To fix them you have to heat them until the solder melts, then place the new one in its place

It sounds like it could be your HDMI port. Just to factor out the TV have you tried testing on an entirely different TV?
