However, regarding this,Forbes"If 90% of the buyers report a problem, only 9% of the people who did not suffer, we will see a lot of defect reports." In fact It is unknown how much trouble actually occurred to you.
furtherThe VergeAccording to a study of PS4 Amazon reviews, there are hundreds of people wearing one star, while when inquiring of multiple stores, there are no people returning. In the United States, since there are most people who return defective items and exchange them with new ones, it is obviously inconsistent that there is no inquiry at the store, and it is diverging from the reaction on the net.
Also, in Amazon's customer service, "A defect in the production process was found on PlayStation 4, Sony is currently investigating the defect, I heard that Sony sent instructions to your company (Amazon) to ship it "The customer service says," All what the customer heard is true, according to what I hear, it is said that SONY is stopping the production of PlayStation 4 "and replies The image that the image that is being put on is the circulation. However, in fact, Amazon's operators never respond with "named" in chat support, so it is said that it is "a stereotype image".

As for "compatibility of television", it means that I received reports from users saying "It was solved by updating the firmware on the TV side".
For "PS4 power supply problem", switch off the PS 4 switch and remove the AC adapter cord from the insertion port. Next, please check whether the "A" "E" "F" part of the image below is damaged.
Switch off the PS 4 switch and slide the top cover of the part where the HDD is stored to remove "HDD problem".
Please check whether HDD is properly fixed or damaged.
It is recommended to start PS 4 in safe mode if no trouble is found in "PS4 power supply" and "HDD".
