Just like any device, the PS5 has system issues and glitches from time to time. Since the day the first PS was released, users have reported several problems with this unit, such as download errors and bricking issues. The good news is that most of the issues can be resolved. In this article, we are going to talk about 4 common problems with PlayStation 5 and tips to fix them. Read on to find out more.
1. Rest Mode Errors
The rest mode errors are quite common with PS5. According to some people, they have problems when in the rest mode during a gameplay, while others have issues while waking up the console. As a result of these issues, the console may crash or pop-up messages may show-up asking the user to fix the hard drive.
As far as the rest-mode issues are concerned, you just need to disable the feature. There is no other possible solution yet.
2. Charging Problems
According to some users, they had issues charging the Dual Sense Controller of the unit. The most common issue is the inability of charging the controller in the rest mode. As a result, the batteries run out pretty quickly during a gaming session.
This is not the console issue. In most cases, it’s the user’s fault. If you are facing this issue, you should enable the rest mode. If you don’t know, you can check the Power Save settings. So, if that doesn’t seem to fix it, you should plug the chord into the back ports of the unit.
3. Data Transfer Problems
Some PS5 owners use PS4 as well. And some users need to move data from their old systems to the latest one. During this process, they have some issues. Therefore, if you find it difficult to move data to the new unit, check the LAN or USB cables. According to some people, Wi-Fi gives the best results as far as data transfer is concerned. So, you should try that to see if it works.
4. Download issues
Most problems with the unit is related to downloading. For instance, you may experience a problem where the download continues indefinitely and never seems to complete. An easy fix is to reset the device to factory settings. If you want to try this solution, don’t forget to backup your unit first.
Another solution is to update the system software of your PS5. Once updated, you should start the unit in safe mode in order to build the database once again.
