I bought a used ps4 slim for cheap from a guy saying it worked fine with no issues. I reset it to factory, updated it, played some games with no issues that I noticed. Transferred my data from my original ps4, and set started playing again. I hadn’t played much on it before the transfer, but I just noticed that it started doing this light static on the screen and then sometimes flickers and rarely goes to black screen. Interestingly, I tried the only thing I could find on youtube which was to go to Settings > sound and screen > Video Output Settings and then change the RGB Range from automatic to something else (or whatever it’s set to to something else)… And then the static and flickering goes away for the rest of the time I play (no matter how long). When I’m done playing, I’ll turn it off completely. Come back later and it happens again. Change the setting from what I changed it to, to something else… fixed. The problem presents itself about 95% of times I turn it on. I have done a DB rebuild. It sometimes presents itself 10 minutes into playing or an hour into playing. It sounds software related, but I could be wrong. I have a ton of experience with building and repairing PCs, but I’m new to repairing consoles. I’m really hoping this isn’t an APU issue. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
