    I have a hacked ps4 which was running fine on 5-05 hen etc up until tonight. Now i press the power button on the console and it wont turn on. I press the disc button and it beeps, but the power button, nothing. Has it bricked somehow? I barely use it, so i cant think it would be to be honest. is the power button broken or is the console caput

    My PS4 power button doesn't function either but still powers on with a controller plugged in by pressing the PS button

    Try to hold the power button for a longer time (=20 sec) and see if it turns on then

    @Tomassi

    I would troubleshoot various things to see what’s happening:

    Power: perhaps it needs to be disconnected for a few mins, replugged in and see what happened

    HDMI: is it connected properly? Remove the cables, reseat them and try again, if still nothing try changing the cable.

    Safe mode: after removing from power for a few mins, plug it back in, give it 30 seconds, then press and hold the power button until (if it beep at all) it beeps a second time.

    thanks guys, having looked around, ive managed to fix it. I think the power button is broken because I tried to put a disc in and it all booted up ok thank god! trouble is, all my controllers were synced to my other unhacked ps4, so I couldn't even turn it on with one of them. should be good to go now though. so, in future, if anyone elses ps4 isn't turning on, try putting a disc in, hopefully that will work!

    If you’re feeling techy open it up and see if the power ribbon cable has vibrated or wiggles out of place.

    I may do if it causes problems in the future. At the moment I'll just thank my lucky stars I can switch it on at all!
