Forums - Sony Discussion - I think my PS4 just broke? New PS4 virus going around. PS4 users beware!

*Update: I fixed it! I just unplugged the power cord for about 2 hours and it was fixed when i plugged back in. Also, it's not a REAL virus, people. Y'all took me waaayyy too serious with virus thing. Just pray that the shit doesn't happen to you*


I just knew this BULLSHIT was going to happen eventually..




Ok so about 10 minutes ago, I was awoken by my PS4 being turned on. So I immediately thought that I must've turned over and hit the PS button on the controller since the DS4 is laying beside me on the bed.


So I then see that the DS4 is a good little bit away from me and the bar light is completely off so I then say "uhhh.. yea... I'm pretty sure I didn't just turn this on". So I immediately think " oh lord.. has the dreaded moment finally happened? Has my PS4 found some way to break itself like I had a feeling would eventually happen?" And I look at the PS4 only to see PVZ Garden Warfare ejected. 


By this time I started to notice that I kept hearing the eject noise. So basically my PS4 JUST FUCKING RANDOMLY caught some wack ass'd auto-disc-reject bug.. #LAME


I mean there is NOTHING that I did wrong with the PS4. It's been sitting upwards with the eject and power button facing the ceiling since the day I bought the PS4(The white Destiny PS4 bundlein September). I haven't moved it out of that spot AT ALL. And now this random shit just starts happening OUT OF KNOWERE! LIKE WTF!!


So I then google "PS4 auto disc eject" or something like that and I see that this has happened to other people. I'm also seeing people say things like " this happened to me 3 months ago, I fixed it, and now its happening again." Oh lord! Is this what I'm in for?


I also dont have a warranty. I feel like they are useless because if something happens to your console, its going to keep happening. So you might aswell just get a completely new system rather than sending it in only to have the same problem arise again a few months later.


Lol.. I actually had to look up a "fix" for a system that should be working perfectly fine. I shouldn't have to look up a FUCKING FIX in the 1st place. 


So I guess that was a fine 3-4 months before seeing problems. I guess I wont be playing Bloodborne and The Order afterall. 


My fellow Playstation people, beware! This shit just tackled me OUT OF KNOWHERE so the same could happen to you. I dont fucking feel like buying another PS4 because I ALREADY BOUGHT ONE THAT SHOULD WORK PROPERLY! I'm not sending SHIT in to Sony only to get a temporary fix.. 


Either way you slice it, I will eventually have to spend another $400+ to get another one.  Over $900 on a single console.. hmm. So I guess have been forced out of #PS4Gang and #TeamPS4. Just gotta take this L(loss) and move on..

Don't you have any kind of default warranty? Usually products come with a years warranty as standard.

Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018.

Wait, so how do you know is a virus and not a faulty disc reader?

I thought the PS4 comes with a year of default warranty?

I had the same auto disc reject problem few weeks ago. I left the ps4 for a few days and it fixed itself.

The key to avoid these kind of problems is very easy! Just do what I do and don't use your PS4!

Yeah..this is news to me.  Can we get some clarification on this part of your thread title OP?

If PS4 can have viruses... have you tried with Ctrl+Alt+Del?

Suddenly getting turned on and ejects stuff? I think your console is pregnant...
