How to Fix PS5 Green Screen of Death? Here Are 4 Solutions
PS5, short for PlayStation 5, is a popular home video game console. It is the successor to the PS4 (PlayStation 4) developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment. On a PS5 console, you can play a huge number of PS4 games and PS5 games.
PS5 does provide users with wonderful gaming performance, designed with a pre-installed M.2 SSD and a DualSense wireless controller. Unfortunately, some users encounter various problems while playing the console, such as PS5 crashing, PS5 error codes CE-108262–9, CE-106485–4, etc.
Today, I’d like to take about another common issue that happens on the PS5 — PS5 green screen of death.
PS5 green screen of death usually happens due to the connection issues between the PS5 console and the TV. If you encounter the PS5 screen of death, you can try the following solutions.
Solution 1: Try Another HDMI Port
Generally, a PS5 console can be connected to a TV via an HDMI cable. However, an improper HDMI connection is one of the most common reasons for the PS5 green screen of death. To troubleshoot the problem, you can try to use a different HDMI port on your TV.
According to Sony, PS5 can work with any HDMI. For better performance, it is recommended to use HDMI 2.1. However, if your TV doesn’t support HDMI 2.1, you might need to try an HDMI 1.4 port.
After changing the HDMI port, you can restart your PS5 and check whether the PS5 green screen of death is fixed. If it appears again, you should move on to the next solution.
Solution 2: Disable HDR on Your TV
If you are using the HDR or any gaming mode on your TV, please disable them. Some users have fixed the PS5 green screen after disabling them. It is easy to operate and you should also have a try.
Solution 3: Get Out of Rest Mode
Similar to PS4, PS5 is built with a Rest Mode that enables you to wake up the PS5 console in seconds. However, this mode can cause crashing issues sometimes. Unfortunately, PS5 hasn’t released any solutions to the problem. Therefore, you’d better disable the Rest Mode while playing the console.
To disable PS5 Rest Mode, you can go to Settings > System > Power Saving > Set Time Until PS5 Enters Rest Mode. Then select Don’t Put in Rest Mode.
If you cannot access PS5 settings due to the PS5 green screen of death, you can continue with the next solution.
Solution 4: Check for TV Issues
If your TV doesn’t work properly, you could also encounter the green screen on PS5. To troubleshoot the problem, you can try to connect your PS5 to another TV. If the green screen doesn’t appear, it indicates your TV is the reason why you encounter the problem.
To solve the problem, you should make sure your TV is running the latest firmware software. As for how to install the firmware and software updates on a TV, you can refer to the tutorial from Sony.
If updating the firmware doesn’t help, either, you might need to restore your TV to default settings.
Unfortunately, if you tried all the solutions you can find but the PS5 green screen still exists, you might need to contact PlayStation Support for more solutions.
