What to Do When PlayStation 4 Beeps but Doesn't Turn On

  1. Check the Power Supply. The first thing you should check when your PlayStation beeps but does not turn on is the power supply. Ensure the power cable is plugged in correctly and the outlet you are using is working accurately. You can also try plugging the power cord into a different outlet to see if that solves the problem.
  2. Allow Your PlayStation to Cool Down. If your PlayStation has been overheating, the first thing you should do is let it cool down. Turn off the PS console and unplug it from the power source. Wait for at least 30 minutes before turning it back on.
  3. Clean the Fan. Over time, the fan inside your PlayStation can become clogged with dust, which can cause it to overheat. To clean the fan, use a can of compressed air to blow out the dust. Make sure to do this in a well-ventilated area and to hold the can upright.
