Hello, I just started buying and reselling ps4’s a month ago (inspired by TronicsFix) and its been going really well.
I bought a broken PS4 Slim from a local gaming store with no description of what is wrong with it. As soon as I got it, it turned on, It was working perfectly fine…
Here is when the problem starts. When I select the turn off ps4 or rest mode option sometimes it would turn on fine, or blink white or blue.
When blinking white or blue I simply turned it off and on again and it worked fine.
There was one instance where I turned it on, it went to safe mode and it tried getting me to update the software by using a usb for reinstallation…I just pressed okay and it continued to the main login screen (not needing to use any usb updates)
Later on, I wanted to see what would happen when I Initialize the console. It failed to initialize and doesn’t go to the main screen anymore…it automatically goes on safe mode and the only option available is reinstallation with USB. I tried reinstalling software using USB and I only get an error saying there are no USB’s plugged in
Is this a hard drive problem? It fails to initialize, and it would fail to run the software properly on start up randomly…
