My PS4 has a WHITE light... normal?

Post by Thirty3Three on Tue Jan 07, 2014 7:09 pm

It's usually always white...

Never really blue... the strip, I mean.

Is this normal? What does it mean?

Thanks!

Day 1. It's always been like this. I just never asked. It's always been like this.

Also, Remote Play lags a lot for me, and my connection is far above average. Weird, right?

I think that's fine. Not 100% sure but IIRC my friend's PS4 had a white light occasionally too. It might be like the Wii U where having a disc in gives a different color (well, in the U's case, a different light stays lit at all times if a disc is in).

And no, remote play will likely always be laggy unless your connection is 100+mbps. And even if you pay for that much, you rarely get above 70.

No, Comcast's 30mbps should do the trick. 100mbps seema a bit unrealistic.

This seems more accurate, sorry DP.


My friend has one that reaches only about 13-17mbps, and he can play his very well. Mine is roughly 70-90mbps (I said mine was above average, was I mistaken?), and it doesn't do very well. There's something off here.

Companies do have a way for saying that's what you're getting and then gouging you right behind your back. If this is the case, either the provider's servers are awful, or they not giving you the service you're paying for. I recommend running a speed test. If the test is good, the only thing I can think of is that the servers are shit.

I've come to the conclusion via speedtest.

Also, my PS4 wont connect remotely via interbet. I think its a ps4 issue- with mine. Thats what sony support said when i called in

That is a possibility, Sony's PS4 servers are still new.

30 will still result in lag at least some of the time. You're talking to someone who's completed four courses in networking. That said, with local remote play lag is likely an issue with the WiFi itself (sort of like how you can't remotely play a Wii U from the gamepad with obstacles between the two, except this is a network issue while that is more hardware-side). Since Sony itself is saying it's the console, I obviously can't argue that. I was gonna ask if PS3 remote play was problematic for you but there's no need since you got word from Sony already.
