Is your PlayStation 4 frozen? Do your favorite games keep crashing? Restarting your PS4 can fix these issues and more. You can even reboot your PS4 with or without a controller. We’ll show you how.
The Quick Menu hosts various commonly used options, one of which is a restart option.
Launch the Quick Menu by pressing and holding the PS button on your controller.
In the left sidebar, select “Power.” On the right, choose “Restart PS4.”
Your console will then turn off and back on.
You can also restart using the Power menu.
To do so, from your PS4 home screen’s top-right corner, select the “Power” option.
Choose “Power Options” in the menu.
Select “Restart PS4.”
If you’ve misplaced your controller or it’s not working, you can still reboot your PS4 console.
To do that, on your console itself, press and hold down the Power button for about seven seconds. Let go of the button when you hear the second beep.
Note: If you release the Power button before the second beep, your PS4 will enter Rest Mode instead.
Wait for your PS4’s light to stop blinking. When that happens, turn your PS4 back on by pressing the same Power button.
If you continue to experience issues, boot your PS4 in Safe Mode for further troubleshooting.
