Troubleshooting PlayStation 5 No Display Issues
The PlayStation 5 is a powerful gaming console that offers an immersive gaming experience. However, like any other electronic device, it can sometimes run into issues. One of the most common issues that users face is the PlayStation 5 no display issue. If you’re experiencing this issue, don’t worry! In this blog post, we’ll go over some troubleshooting steps that you can take to fix the issue.
Step 1: Check Your TV or Monitor
Before troubleshooting any issues, ensure the TV or monitor you are using is powered on and working correctly. If you have a smart TV, ensure you have installed the newest software. Turn the TV or Monitor off and then on. Connect a different console or DVD player to the TV to ensure the TV works. If another device shows a working image with no issues, the problem likely comes from the PS5, possibly from its HDMI connection. If you can’t get any device to show an image on the TV or monitor, try plugging the PS5’s HDMI cable into another TV or monitor.
Step 2: Check the HDMI Cable Connection
If your TV or monitor turns on and displays other devices, it is possible the HDMI cord that connects the PS5 to the TV is damaged or improperly connected. The HDMI port the console is plugged into might be broken. Check the PS5 HDMI cord for damage. If you can’t see any visible damage, try a new HDMI cord and plug it into the PS5 and TV. Plug the HDMI cord into a different port on your TV if there’s more than one. If another device shows up on the TV using a different HMDI port, connect the PS5 HDMI cord to that port. Be sure to adjust the input settings to ensure that your screen is set to display the proper port’s input. Note: Ensure the HDMI input on your TV or monitor is set up to use version 2.0 or 2.1. HDMI 2.1 allows the PS5 to support higher frame rates than the PS4.
Step 3: Power Cycle the Console
If you’ve tried different TVs and HDMI cords and ports, the PS5 console is likely the source of the problem. If your PS5 turns on, but your TV or monitor is black or not showing the PS5 user interface, force shut down the console. Turn on the PS5 console. Press and hold the power button. Once you hear two beeps, let go of the power button. Wait for 20 minutes while the PS5 cools down. Turn on the PS5. If performing a force shutdown did not fix the issue, complete a power cycle. Press and hold the console’s power button until the white light stops flashing. Remove the power cable. Wait at least 20 minutes while the power drains. Reconnect the power cable and turn on your PS5. If the force shutdown and power cycle did not get the image back on your TV screen, you will need to attempt the solutions below. In the event that the PS5 is not being powered correctly, the console may not be receiving enough power from either the wall outlet or the power cord to stay on. Unplug the power cable. Wait at least a minute, check the cord for damage, and then plug it back into the PS5. If it is damaged or you aren’t sure the cord works, try another power cord. The PS5 uses an IEC C7 power cable that came standard with the PS3 and PS4. Use a different wall outlet.
