We’ve all been there. You’re playing your favorite game on the PlayStation 4 and suddenly you have to go. But you don’t want to quit out of the game and lose your progress, so you just hit the power button to put it in standby mode. Unfortunately, this can sometimes lead to damage when the PS4 is not turned off properly. In this blog post, we will discuss what that damage is and how you can avoid it.
When you put your PS4 into standby mode, it is not actually turned off. All of the internal components are still powered on and running. This means that if there is a power surge or outage, your PS4 is still at risk for damage. To avoid this, you should always turn off your PS4 completely by holding down the power button for at least seven seconds. This will ensure that all of the internal components are turned off and your PS4 is protected from any potential damage.
So, there you have it! Be sure to turn off your PS4 completely when you’re finished playing to avoid any damage. And if you do experience any damage, be sure to contact Sony for assistance. They may be able to help you repair or replace your PS4 if it is damaged. Thanks for reading!
