9to6 worker, gamer, nice guy.
Thanks a lot, Sabre. I’ll take it to the store tomorrow, it seems.
Thanks! Maybe all the fumbling around with the cable properly seated the connector…
Oh… Mine’s working, I think.
…I just jinxed it, right?
I need context…. :p
Also, and this is criminal :
I own those games but haven’t played them because backlog.
I do have a PS3 connected to the TV, Lulz…. RPGs with D as in Dragon’s Dogma or Demons/Dark Souls? I have them both, but the PS3’s been off for a few days… unless a friend of mine logged in on his console to get PS+ stuff, but he shouldn’t be playing…
A little update on my PS4 situation… context (quoting from a post I made yesterday, here’s what happened):
The image from my PS4 was flickering like crazy tonight, playing any game or being on the menus…tried 3 different hdmi leads on all of the TV’s ports and no change. If I try to adjust the cable on the console (which wobbles a bit), it gets worse. [edit: more than just flickering, actually, some lines would show artifacts and the like, too]
Decided to take it back tomorrow for a in-store replacement (if there’s stock), and after unhooking it I decide to try it with my computer monitor, just to double check…. Works flawlessly [even if I adjust the cable]…
So, today I connected everything back on my TV and played for almost two hours, no issues…
I’m relieved and worried at the same time: on on hand, no issues so far; on the other, if it’s a on and off thing I’ll probably have a hard time demonstrating the issue at the store for a direct replacement.
Also, the store where I got has a cool policy about replacements in the first two weeks after buying, after which I have to send it in for repairs (either directly to Sony or through the store itself), so I’m interested in sorting this out until the end of next week…
I took a pic and made a few short vids of the HDMI cable/jack… I wonder if any of you guys that have PS4s could see if it looks similar to yours, if it sits as deep as this one and if it wobbles like this?
Heres a dropbox link with the media: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/knbmx860k464lco/-_ETgtHHb8
I’m probably being paranoid about this, but any help will be appreciated!
When I tested it with the PC monitor wiggling the cable didn’t do anything noticeable, that’s why I’m worried.
Around here, electronic stores almost always test items before replacing them directly, and sometimes even before sending it for repairs.
Given that PS4 stocks are currently on the low side of things, they’ll probably try to reproduce it and/or send it for repairs instead of replacing it.
Hope so. I will, however, be dependent on them replicating the issue in-store, which, given my recent findings with the monitor…. tonight I’ll probably find out if I manage to exchange it..
Aye! This situation really pissed me off. sigh
Well…a few stores got some stock today, and will get some more on the 12th or 13th…. rumour has it that after, only in January…
Thanks for you help, swordsman!
For that price I’d give a go again… now if only that deal was valid for Europe too…
Ok, that’s a terrorizing tale. Glad nothing bad happened!
Regarding my PS4, the console’s HDMI connector wobbles ever so slightly, but after trying all of the TV’s ports and three different cables I decided to try it connected to my computer screen… and had no issues whatsoever. I’m a bit puzzled, and will do some further testing later on…
How’s the connector on your console? Does it move a little bit or is it fixed?
Yeah, I thought it was a good reset to the status quo. I don’t read the comics, therefore I wasn’t expecting Hershel’s death.
By the way, veering into off-topic land in an off-topic thread: have you had any sort of flickering issues on your PS4? Mine was going cray-cray yesterday :(
If it’s the same I saw a few days ago, the one where the Governor assaults the prison, ho-lee-indeed!
15? All of my envies.
Best deal I can get around here is… 35€, I think.
What is this “relaxing” you speak of?
And good morning, Polypeeps!
So, just a quick rant before going to sleep: the image from my PS4 was flickering like crazy tonight, playing any game or being on the menus…tried 3 different hdmi leads on all of the TV’s ports and no change. If I try to adjust the cable on the console, it gets worse.
Decided to take it back tomorrow for a in-store replacement (if there’s stock), and after unhooking it I decide to try it with my computer monitor, just to double check…. Works flawlessly….
I’m tired, so tomorrow I’ll try again with the tv. Fml.
Cheers guys, cya tomorrow.
The way to reach devkit mode should have been the Konami code….
It’s ok Giga, I got both. :)
Bring it? I brought it fourty-five minutes ago.
redacted yes, that’s exactly it, thanks!
Now I have to kill you all.
Geez, Lucky…. why do you hate me so? The Biebs? :’(
No X1 launch here yet, but the few stores that had them over from other countries still had a few available, but not many.
The PS4, on the other had, is completely sold out until December 12th, according to most stores.
Glad I could make your day better. ;)
This is what I get for changing sentences after writing them and not proofing them before sending.
I’m getting the Zelda game today or tomorrow as a gift I’m giving saturday, and I’m curious since it’s been getting a somewhat mixed reaction…
