PS4 Overheating: 5 Easy Ways To Fix

PS4 Overheating is not just a nuisance; It can be harmful to your Console. Prolonged heat at high temperatures can ruin your printed circuit boards, and nobody wants it. Many of the reasons that revolve around the ps4 overheating problem are not your fault, so do not give up. From a system overload to a routine cleaning job, I’m here to help you overcome your overheating problems!

Room temperature and random flukes

Sometimes, your ps4 overheating is just a stroke of luck. Before you get scared by the possibility that your console is broken forever, try to turn it off. Let the PlayStation cool to a normal temperature and turn it on again. If you still have problems, continue below to get more opportunities for easy solutions.

Another thing you should check is how hot is too hot for ps4. If the room stays too hot, it will cause your PS4 to overheat. Make sure your house has a cool temperature for safe play! Now we all know that there is always a room in the house that stays hotter or colder than the rest. Fortunately, you can get a cheap Amazon thermometer for about $8 to track the temperature of your room. In this way, you have an active display of whether you need to turn on a fan or open a window.


 

Compressed air is your friend.

If you have some game consoles or computers, a can of compressed air should now be on the list of things in your practical drawer. I can not even begin to count the number of problems I have had with the technology from which air can save me. Having said that, if your PlayStation 4 overheats, the first thing you want to check is cleanliness.

Are the fans on the sides of your console dusty? Usually, that’s the number 1 reason for a noisy or overheated PS4.

  1. Unplug your PlayStation 4 completely and look for a flat surface to work with.
  2. Take your can of compressed air and navigate gently through the openings to the fan of your PS4.
  3. Check and clean the USB ports.
  4. Convert your PS4 and give your ports plugs and a soft hit with the can as well.
  5. When you feel satisfied, clean your PS4 with a microfiber cloth.

Plug the PS4 back in and see if the overheating problems have improved. If you feel that your PlayStation requires a deeper cleaning, you may need to resort to a professional. Destroying your PlayStation can be a risky business.

Check system updates when your ps4 overheating occurs

Not everyone plays their PS4 online or even has it connected to Wi-Fi. Even if you do not, it’s good to set a reminder on your phone to connect your PlayStation to the Internet and check for software updates. This will increase the performance of your console and reduce the risk of it working too much and overheating!

Make sure your console is connected to Wi-Fi!

  1. Select Settings in your top menu on the main screen of your PS4. It will look like a briefcase.
  2. Select System Software Update.
  3. Select Check for updates
  4. If there is an update, select Install update. If there is no update, it will notify you!

Check game updates

Another type of update that you want to keep in mind are the updates of the games. Most PlayStations are set to update automatically when they connect to the Internet, but if you are not, here is not how to do it manually!

Make sure your console is connected to Wi-Fi.

  1. In the main menu of your PS4 highlights the game in question.
  2. Press the Options button located on your controller.
  3. Scroll down to the options menu and select Check for updates.
  4. If there is an update, select Install update. If there is no update, it will notify you!

Make room for more memory

Sometimes, when a PlayStation 4 is reaching its maximum amount of memory, it will begin to give you some performance problems. This is not overheating, but the way the system slows down may feel similar. You can solve these problems by cleaning space or buying an external hard drive. The good thing about the second option is that you can get a pretty good one on Amazon for about $ 90 and it will give you an extra 2 TB of memory!
