    Am I misreading something or does each section/bullet point have massive repeats of the same stuff? Over and over.

    I've been very unlucky this gen, I'm on my third PS4. First one died just out of warranty, wouldn't turn on, replacing the power supply did nothing. The second died a week before I got my PS4 pro, HDMI port gave up, very salty about that one, I was going to trade it towards the Pro!

      Two of my friends had ps4s which randomly ejected the disc. We sorta fixed it by clearing the cache, but it always came back.

      Super weird. Mine is still going strong.

        Only issue I've had with mine is that the sticker on the back of the controller peeled off.

          I had to replace two DS4s because the thumb-sticks wore off. I'm seriously.

        That's really common with 1st gen PS4s - happened to my launch PS4. Tightening the BDROM screw helped for a while, in the end I popped out the rubber foot under the touch eject button, trimmed a couple of mm off the bit that sits behind the eject button, and refit it. Problem gone.

          Because that's something you should be required to do when buying new hardware...

          Thats just terrible.

      I'm about to be on my third after a random shutdown problem and now a random disc eject problem. Because I cited Australian Consumer Law Sony has been doing the replacements free of charge after 2.5 years in and now 3 years in because with a publicised expected 10 year life cycle on the console a reasonable person can expect it to last that long.

        Disc eject's common - tighten the screwPS4 cdrom screw. See here:

        https://www.geek.com/games/how-to-save-your-ps4-from-the-auto-eject-disc-bug-1600574/

        If all esle fails, take the rubber foot out (permanently if it's kept vertical, trim a tiny bit off behind the eject button and refit if not).

        The issue has a number of possible causes but the BDROM being loose or the rubber foot activating the eject button are the most common. Mine's been fine for a year since I trimmed the foot.

          Some launch consoles can certainly be fixed this way, but in my experience the problem is related to dust accumulation around the eject button (and in the crevice between it and the power button).

          I fixed the issue by using a dust cloth. Dusting the affected every week or so resolved the problem for me (which appeared a few months after buying at launch).

            I nearly snapped my ps4 in half after it ejected destiny moments before completing a raid.

            I tried all of the above but eventually got the shits and got Sony to replace it out of warranty. I was ready for a shit fight after having multiple issues with a Sony TV they they wouldn't fix. But it was quite smooth sailing with the PS4 now they're acknowledging their obligations under the Australian Consumer Protections.

          The screw doesn't tighten, it just spins. I can do the power cycle that clears the cache and spin the screw a bit and it might be fine for a couple of days or it might be fine for a couple of minutes but it usually fucks me when I'm in a winning position online in fifa.

      My white ps4 died due 2 german cockaroaches shorting out the power supply & damaging 3 other components, German cockaroaches love water & heat, Despite our house getting pest controlled every 6 months & being clean enough 4 the queen, Our neighbors are grubs. :( That ps4 was sent 2 a business in Sydney & was rebuilt & 2 weeks out of their warranty the second power supply failed,(Not Roaches,They're gone) I have a Ps4 Pro now & a broken white regular ps4, I miss using that so much... I hate the pro
