    Or buy digital, I can’t think of one instance where my PS4 ejected my digital copies

    In the 4th point, isn’t suppose to to tight clockwise instead of counter clockwise as seen in the pic? That said, nice tutorial, good job.

      the image i used in the tutorial is not down so wololo substituted another pic… in my case, i cant tighten the screw no matter which direction i go….

    I got my ps4 the Christmas it came out, and I’ve never had any auto ejecting problems with it. Lucky me! 🙂

    I fixed it by using a HDMI surge protector (ESD) like this one:

    I had this problem all the time researched possible solutions, btw all of them are mentioned in this tutorial, and finaly expericed that the eject issue also came up when the hdmi cable only touches the connector. My Display and my PS4 are connected to 2 seperate sockets and this surge protector solved it for me.

    I was not aware this was an issue. I have the original white ps4 from the destiny bundle, as well as a 20th ann. one, haven’t run into the issue with either. Neither are standing vertically. Hopefully I won’t ever run into this problem but at least this is out there should it ever happen. Thanks for the info!

    Can someone tell me the specific screw driver that you need for that particular screw

  13. bobo1704 says:

    I had this problem when I first bought it about 1,5 year ago… I tried all these ways (except the last one) and I finally fixed it by sending it back to SONY and they sent me a new one!
