If you are a PS4 owner, you might have faced a common issue of the console overheating. Overheating can cause serious problems to the system, and it is important to fix it as soon as possible. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to fix your PS4 to stop overheating in 2023.
Firstly, turn off your PS4. Once the PS4 is off, put it into safe mode. To put your PS4 into safe mode, hold on the power button until the blinking lights completely turn off. Then, hold on the power button until you hear two beeps, which should take about six to eight seconds. This will bring up the safe mode screen.
You are going to need a USB cable or your PS4 controller charger. Now, use the d-pads to navigate to the ‘rebuild database’ option. This step is crucial as there could be some corrupt files causing your PS4 to overload and overheat. All those corrupt files will be deleted and removed.
Once you click on ‘OK,’ the data will be rebuilt, and you need to wait for it to finish. It might take a few hours, depending on the last time you did this. Once the rebuild is complete, your PS4 should stop overheating.
It is important to note that you do not need to subscribe or watch a video to fix this issue. Following the above steps can help you avoid any problems and keep your PS4 running smoothly.
