PS4 Yellow Light Of Death – Fix And Control Easily

PS4 users will be familiar with a number of light indicators. Blue and white are pretty common, but on occasion you will also see yellow, orange, and red. Each of these signifies a certain thing – mostly the mode in which your PS4 is. However, a constant yellow light is a matter of concern.

What Does The Yellow Light Mean?

In general, yellow light on a PS4 indicates that it is in standby mode. If the system is charging or if the controller is not connected, you will see this light.

In a PS3, it is often referred to as the Yellow Light of Death because it comes on when the temperature exceeds 60 degrees. You should immediately shut it down. This yellow light has been a point of no return in the PS3 but we guess the PS4 won’t give you these problems because it is lighter and cooler than its predecessor.

PS4 Yellow Light Of Death – How To Fix It

Start by shutting off and unplugging your console. Remove the power cord too. After that, follow the steps below:

  • Take a USB cable and connect it to the console.
  • Use your controller to press Share and PS together.
  • Once the controller starts blinking, connect the PS4. 
  • Do not switch it on yet.
  • After the connection is established, switch it on and use the USB cable to connect the controller to the console.

The yellow light should ideally be dissolved.
