PlayStation 5 a.k.a PS5 is one of the most popular game consoles in the United Kingdom with more than 1 million units sold. It succeeded the previous version of PlayStation in November 2020. Apart from the fact that it is a top-notch gaming console, the users have been facing various issues with their PS5 consoles such as connectivity problems and overheating. So, this post contains some of the common PS5 issues.

Common Issues and Bugs in PS5

Frequent PS5 Overheating Problem

If your PlayStation 5 is overheating frequently there may be various issues and luckily most of them can be taken care of. The most common reasons for the PS5 overheating are:

  • Placement of the console in a cabinet or cupboard where there is no ventilation. So, keep your PS5 in an open space to keep it from overheating.
  • Placement of the PS5 close to a wall also causes overheating so make sure there is a fair gap between the wall and the device.
  • Faulty fan or the obstruction around the fan may partially or fully stop it from working so your PlayStation console gets overheated more often. In such a case, you should get it checked by an expert PS5 repairer.

Incompatibility with PS4 Games

Although most of the PlayStation 4 games are compatible with the PlayStation 5, it may still mark some of the PS4 games as unplayable. To get rid of this problem, you may need to restore your license from the PlayStation settings. Still, there are various PS4 games that won’t work on PS5, such as Joe’s Diner, Shadow Complex Remastered and Kuma Volume I.

If you are unable to tackle this problem, you should contact Tech Solutions to get it fixed.
