The Playstation 5 is a genuine leap forward for console gaming, offering gorgeous 4K performance, stunningly fast load times, and a truly game-changing controller that makes playing games more immersive and tactile than ever. It plays nearly all PS4 games, and, in many cases, allows them to run and load better than ever before
Released in the fall of 2020, the PS5 was revolutionary. It’s the first in the 9 total generations to use a solid-state drive (SSD) which has just recently, through software updates, opened up the option for a second drive. The PS5 ships with a very unconventional 825 GB drive that’s been developed specifically for the console.
The Playstation5 was released in two different variations, one with a disc drive and one without. Both of them support 4K video through a conventional HDMI port, much like the PS4 and the PS3 yet, despite all the advancements of the newest generation, it’s far from indestructible. Owners of the PS5 have had issues with their gaming consoles not displaying anything on the screen when they power them on and the problem is usually due to the aforementioned HDMI port.
Mishandling of the Playstation 5 is the biggest reason users end up with a blank screen. The technicians at Computers Plus Repair Center (CPRC) have found that when the PS5 is moved from one position to another without being fully disconnected from all cables first, the fragile port inside of it can break, even slightly, resulting in complete loss of audio and video. Rest assured; it is not at all a problem without a solution. Because it is so similar to the previous versions, Computers Plus Repair Center (CPRC) in El Paso has years of experience repairing such an accident.
Albeit meticulous, Computers Plus Repair Center is more than equipped to repair or replace the HDMI port, depending on the severity of the damage. Basic troubleshooting is advisable before bringing the PS5 to the shop although the HDMI issue does not leave much room for users to try and fix it on their own.
