XBoxOne E100 Error | XBox One Update Error | PS4 Blue Light Of Doom Fix | RRoD

Last week, prior to the PS4 release, the larger gaming media pounced on every report of a PS4 problem like rabid animals. This week, with the Xbox One coming out tomorrow, reports of issues with the system are generally being ignored. But with the system technically already launched in parts of Europe, we’re starting to see issues pop up along with video proof.

Early reports of PS4 not working have surfaced, with the main issue appearing to be related to the PS4 OS, bricking PS4 consoles.

The issue appears to be that despite the blue pulse appearing when the console is switched on, the PS4 won’t load.

he PS4 hasn’t gone on sale yet, so these are isolated incidents restricted to the few PS4s that have gone out pre-release to media and competition winners.

Incredibly, despite these issues being discovered ahead of the PS4’s release and Sony refusing support (as the console isn’t official on sale yet), a fix has already been discovered by Reddit.

To fix a bricked PS4, you have to take the following steps:

Unplug your HDD
Boot the console without the HDD – it will load Safe Mode and ask for a HDD
Switch off, plug in the HDD and boot the console
PS4 will load into safe mode and you can recover the necessary OS data

We won’t know until launch how widespread these issues are, nor how effective this fix will be in zapping all those problems, but it’s still worrying that reports of PS4’s bricking have reared their head so close to the official US console launch this Friday.

PS4 Blue Light of Death | Sony Responds To Playstation 4 BLoD Fault Fix | PS4 RRoD
Early reports of hardware failures afflicting Sony’s new PlayStation 4 console have now become widespread enough to acquire a nickname: the “Blue Light of Death”.

The name encompasses a range of errors, the shared symptoms of which include the console’s blue power light blinking on and off and a failure to transmit video or audio to a connected TV.

Sony has released an official statement noting that the hardware errors have affected “less than .4% of shipped units to date,” a figure that the company says is “within expectations for a new product introduction”.

The company has also reported that more than 1 million consoles were sold in 24 hours during the PS4’s launch in the US and Canada last Friday.

An official trouble-shooting guide for the error has also been posted on Sony’s support forums, with the post noting that the blinking blue light could  “indicate any number of causes including but not limited to”: issues with the customer’s TV, the PS4’s power supply, its hard drive and “other PS4 hardware”.

Suggested fixes include checking that the console’s hard drive is properly secured, booting the system to Safe Mode (achieved by pressing and holding the power button  for seven seconds after powering the console down) and checking for software updates.

As of writing the launch edition of the console has currently received nearly 600 one  star reviews on Amazon.com with the majority of customers complaining about the “Blue Light of Death”.

“Right out of the box I’m getting a pulsing blue light and I can’t see anything on my screen,” writes one reviewer. “Customer service is lousy and I’ve been put on hold for about 50 minutes trying to get my PS4 fixed.”

This collective nickname for the errors is a reference to the infamous “Red Ring of Death” that afflicted the Xbox 360 following its 2005 launch.

Microsoft blamed the widespread hardware failures on the use of lead-free solder introduced in response to a European Union mandate. Various studies have estimated that between roughly 25 and 50 per cent of consoles were affected.
