Reports have been trickling in around the internet about some PlayStation 4s malfunctioning.

One such hardware problem, as noted by Kotaku, prevents the PS4 from outputting a video signal to the display.

According to Kotaku, it seems a "piece of metal in the system's HDMI port was supposed to have been flush with the bottom of the port but instead had been bent upward, obstructing some of the pins in the port."

This "obstructing piece of metal…had actually knocked some of the 'teeth' out of the HDMI wire—the one bundled with that PS4."

TL;DR—If your PS4 is having issues outputting video, make sure the HDMI port isn't bent or damaged.
