Why does my ps4 turn off after I turn it on?

My ps4 randomly turned off and had no reason to. I tried to get back on it on it didn't. it was checking the storage and beeped then the light turned red and shut off. I tried it the next morning and I got it to work. It was rebuilding the database and I think it finished. Right after that, the light went red and it said the overheating message and instantly turned off. I don't know whats wrong.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

This indicates your PS4 has overheated. This could be narrowed down to a number of problems.

Fan failure

Hardware failure

Possible bad motherboard connection to the fan

Immense dust collection inside the PS4

Blocked vents.

Sony advises to send it in after this type of error. Though if you want to save money, you can find a fix on here. Remember when fixing to take your time.

Hope this helped fix your error.

Note: Opening up your PS4 will VOID VOID VOID VOID VOID your warranty, though I find warranty unfair.


Personally I use a GPU reflow machine for the APU chip on the logic board to fix these PS4s with overheating issue after confirming that the power supply is not at fault, in this case for OP they know it's overheating issue.

Cheap fix is washer but funnily enough I've seen some PS4s last 3 years even with just the washer trick.


I just found out that my brother got are dad to buy a new one. Thanks for your help and I will keep your help in mind.


No problem. Happy to help! Try what people suggested to see if you can get your old one back up and running.


I will thanks

There may be something wrong with your fans and hard drive. Clear your vents, and try again.
