    Hey guys,

    I got a used PS4 which has clearly been opened, it worked fine but now when I moved it and plugged the HDMI back in, i get either:

    "No signal"
    or if i mess around with the cable and the PS4 itself I get the sound of the menu etc. However no picture on the screen.

    Could anybody recommend me any tips? Thanks!

    Switch HDMI ports? (to and from TV), try a different cord? reset video settings? Is the cord actually inserted into the PS4 all the way?

    Have you tried a different cable/TV?
    Have you tried recovery mode?

    hold the power button til it beeps once, then keep holding it for about ten seconds till it beeps two more times then it'll boot up in safe mode

    Thanks all, I have switched cables and tried the reset, if i jiggle the cable in the socket slightly i get all kinds of pretty colours. :rofl2:
    I think the port has a problem, I found the thing where you press down the metal in the port but I dont think its that. Ill keep poking away!

    Note: I managed to finally get it working by kind of pulling away from the board. I will now install Remote Play on Mac so I never need to worry about that again. :toot:

    Bro. I don't even have to read the reviews. The price turns me off.

    just read them..
    you will not regret..
    apparently this cable increases the flux capacitor pixels on your toaster and you will be able to improve games fps above what they output or something like that..

    Yeah I was going to tell you how earlier PS4's had a HDMI port issue. I guess one of the metal plugs is bent and you can't plug the entire cord in? It's possible that's the issue.

    Oddly I cant tell if its in "enough".. If i push it it doesn't go in further or help display a signal. I tried switching cables to a more slimline one where the plastic meets the cable too.. To no avail.. Just a very odd problem! I updated to 3.50 and without moving it its back to no signal.. But the system light is white which doesnt tally with the HDMI fail behaviour.. Odd :lol:

    Could anyone advise me, if their port looks at all like this? I keep seeing videos for bending the metal but mine looks different..
    My date code is 5b which is April/M/June 2015 manufacture apparently?

    Thanks in advance!

    Could the console have taken lightning following a thunderstorm?
