Introduction: Why Does the PS4 Keep Restarting and How Do I Stop It?
If your PS4 keeps restarting, it might be because the system is hanging or you are experiencing an issue with your controller.
After working with a few PlayStation 4 console owners who were experiencing the issue of PS4 running at a higher temperature, we came up with a few solutions on how to stop the initializing and fix the problem.
PS4 keeps restarting? Here are some solutions for you!
How to Stop Initializing Your PS4
One of the most annoying things about using your PS4 is that you have to initialize it every time you want to use it. This process takes a lot of time and keeps interrupting your gaming.
Some people may argue that the initialization is necessary because the system needs to initialize when powering up or shutting down. However, this could be easily avoided by disabling the power-on initialization in the system settings.
When you’re done, just power down and power up again for a total of 2 seconds instead of 10-24 minutes depending on how long it takes for your computer to boot up when you turn it off.
How to Fix PlayStation Network Suspension
It’s not enough that you have to initialize your PS4 every time you want to play. Sometimes, the system can’t connect to PlayStation Network and it suspends your account. This is a security measure implemented by Sony to protect their users from any unauthorized access:
To unblock your account, go to PlayStation Support page . Once you complete the form, provide all the requested information and wait until the system processes your request. What happens if you get an error message when trying to sign in? You can try updating your network connection , clearing cache or reinstalling the latest update on your PS4 .
If none of this works for you, you can try restoring your PlayStation account. To do so, you will have to use your email address and password associated with the suspended account. This isn’t a guarantee that this method will work for everyone but it should be one of the first things you should try before digging deeper into possible problems.
How to Make Sure Your PS4 Never Gets Initialized Again without Toggling Settings
Ever experienced the moment when your PS4 didn’t initialize due to a factory reset? Let’s make sure it never happens again!
First, disable all internet capabilities on your console. This will ensure that it won’t be able to connect to any servers or networks. Then, go into the settings menu and find “Wired Network Connection.” Connect your console via LAN cable to a computer that has internet connection. Finally, go back into Settings and turn off the functionality of your console running on Wi-Fi.
You can now start your PS4 and ensure that it won’t initialize again by itself. If this solved the problem, you don’t need to toggle settings each time you want to play without initialization. To make sure it never initialized again, go into Settings > System > Auto-Start Up and disable all network capabilities on the console.
If you’re still having issues with your PlayStation, contact PlayStation Support and explain the problem you’re having. If the support representative is unable to help you, ask to escalate your case. You should be contacted shortly by a senior advisor who will find a solution for your issue!
The process of uninstalling the PS4 is relatively simple, and it only takes a few minutes to uninstall all of the software on your system. This can be done manually or with automatic software removal tool like Revo Uninstaller.
Ps4 has been in the market for over ten years now and has already been around for quite some time, so there may not be any copy-writing tools that are able to automatically remove all of the files from your device.
