Getting the same problem as you OP,
Even if you do have a fullHD 1080p Tv it still wont work, if it does happen to work plz tell me how? i have tried everything!

BeltaneDeath: i dont know why you keep on saying that! ... cos why does my PS4 work on my 720p tv 5-6 yr old? (an old banger).. Butt doesnt work on my 2half year(samsung)£500 fullHD1080p tv ..
there are some PS4 out there OP that just does not connect to some tvs.. unforchantly! and Sony wont replace my PS4.
As iv said! Another ps4 works on my fullHD1080p tv ... Ridiculous!

The PS4 is compatible with both HD Ready (720p) and Full HD (1080p) TVs.

 

However, some TVs and monitors are just randomly incompatible because they don't fully comply with HDMI spec, or just have old, buggy firmware.

 

I'd recommend the OP to test the PS4 on a different display. If it works there, then he should look for a firmware update for his current display, or consider buying a new one.

Re: My TV doesn't work with the ps4

@kimini21 you are perfectly correct, but it seems that more of the issues are with hd ready tvs, so i use it as a starting point. although when people post that updating that tv firmware is a load of rot, i wonder why i bother..

Re: My TV doesn't work with the ps4

Is the video output integrated in the main chip of the PS4 ? If not, it could be that Sony used different sets of chips in different machines, all of them with the same theoretical specs but with different behavior in reality. In the old good times, not all the 8 bit Amstrad were the same. Nobody noticed the different more than twenty years ago, but nowadays there are machines that are able to display different video modes than others Smiley Happy. I wonder if this could be the case.

 

 

I love it when a plan comes together.
