4k gaming has been unlocked after the release of PS4 for anyone deciding to buy a new 4k TV or anyone who has already invested in 4k TV. But Sony has made a problem with its latest version of the PS4 firmware.
It was shipped with firmware version 3.70 after the launch of PS4 Pro. Later, it took place by version 4.00, through which several PS4 specific features were unlocked, including High Dynamic Tango (HDR).
For some 4K TV owners, the latest firmware is causing a significant problem; however, on some 4k TV models, the PS4 no longer displayed a video signal. PS4 Pro has been bricked as the users think but do not worry, and there is a fix.
PS4, PS4 Pro No Signal Fix
Time needed: 15 minutes.
Here is how you can do it;
- Your PS4 should be turned off.
- Now plug in the HDMI in the 4K 60hz Port on the TV
- Turn your TV on
- Keep holding your PS4 power button until it beeps twice to enter Safe Mode
- Change your HDCP settings to 1.4 only
- Now your PS4 will restart, and you might still see “no signal.”
- Now turn off your PS$ again and go back to safe mode (as shown in step 4)
- Select resolution change which your PS4 will restart
- If you get an image after your PS4 restarts, then go for the yuv420 option, perfect!
- If you are still getting PS4 no signal after the restart, then go back to Safe Mode and change HDCP to “automatic.”
- Go back to safe mode again and select change resolution, then select yuv420.
- If it is still not working, then try mixing the steps above couple more times
These problems are being suffered on TVs manufactured by LG, Hisense, and Vizio and the 4k TVs older models, as pointed out by Polygon. Some incompatibility has been introduced regarding the HDCP digital copy protection used by the HDMI link between the TV and the PS4.
The issue not related to the firmware is the HDMI ports on your TV. It requires the use of HDMI 2.0 for PS4 to output 4k at 60Hz. For HDR to work, HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2 is needed. Several TVs ship with a mix of HDMI 2.0 and the older HDMI 1.4 ports, so it is essential to check which connection should be used. To enable HDR, there may be a setting that should be changed on your TV. So take out the manual and start reading.
The final thing to be noted is that Sony will be well aware of the firmware issues. It is already hard at work creating the next version, including a fix.
