It appears Sony is in a FESTIVE mood this year with the PlayStation 5, as reports of a PlayStation 5 (PS5) Green Screen of Death (GSoD) recently surfaced alongside a demonstration video of the infamous PS5 crash below from Raf via YouTube.
Previously we’ve seen a PS3 Yellow Light of Death PS3 YLoD Fix, PS4 Blue Light of Death PS4 BLoD Fix, BwE PS4 NOR Validator and BwE PS4 NOR Repair Guide… with the latest being a PS5 GSoD (Green Screen of Death) by someone fortunate enough to Snag a PlayStation 5 from scalpers and truck jacking gangs.
One commenter suggested the following temporary PS5 GSoD Fix:
“When mine did that I would turn it off after it rebooted and then unplug it for 15 mins, then works fine afterwords.”
While another surmised a more serious underlying issue, to quote:
“Seems like GPU damage, maybe too high frequencies or, unlikely temps for the silicon you got.”
This comes following confirmation from Sony that the PS5 Fan Will Receive Optimization Software Updates with a detailed Analysis of PlayStation 5 Power, Thermals, Storage & More also available proceeding the recent PSN Banwave and PS5 Error Codes database.
PS5 Crash (Green screen and turns off)
Having this bug with any game I try to play..
Definitely not as fun as last year… after shelling out $500+ for it, if anyone experienced this PlayStation 5 GSoD first-hand let us know what happened just prior to receiving $ony’s 2020 X-Mas gift in the PS5 Scene Forums.
Cheers to @pearlxcore for the heads-up on this earlier via Twitter:
