Why My PS5 HDMI is Not Working? Here’s How to Fix it!

Check your PS5 status light. If it’s a solid orange, the console is in rest mode.

To deactivate rest mode, hold down the Power button on your PS5 for 15 seconds.

Double-check that you have selected the correct input source on your TV.

If your PS5 is turned on and connected to the TV or monitor but not displaying on it and giving a “No Signal” error message, power cycle your console. This should fix the issue.

Here’s how to do that:

  1. Turn off your PS5 by pressing and holding the power button for 15 seconds.
  2. Next, unplug all the cables from the console.
  3. Now, hold the power button on the console again for 15 seconds. This will drain any remaining charge on the console.
  4. Keep your console disconnected for 2 to 3 minutes, and then connect the cables.
  5. Plug it back in and turn it On.

If you are still having trouble, check the HDMI cable and then try booting your PS5 in safe mode. If it boots, change HDCP Mode to HDCP 1.4.

HDMI Cable Connection

The HDMI port of the PS5 is located at the back between the power and Ethernet ports. Make sure it is clean, and the HDMI cable is properly seated.

Check the connection on your TV’s side as well and ensure that it is tightly fitted.

If your TV has multiple HDMI ports, try using a different port or different HDMI cables and see if the problem persists.

You need to use the HDMI cable that came with your PlayStation 5, which is HDMI 2.1.

Boot your PS5 to Safe Mode

Like Windows computers, PS5 also has a Safe Mode that allows access to various troubleshooting functions.

To boot your PS5 to safe mode, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold the Power button until you hear two beeps. The light may blink before the console shuts down.
  2. Now, turn on the PS5 again by pressing and holding the power button for 7 seconds and then release it.
  3. When you hear a beep, press the Power button again. This will boot your PlayStation 5 into safe mode. You will see a screen like this:
  1. Connect your DualSense controller using its USB cable and press the PS button on the controller.
  1. Select the Change Video Output option in the safe mode menu.
  1. On next screen, select Change HDCP Mode option.
  1. Set the HDCP mode to HDCP 1.4.
  1. Now restart your console.

Disable HDR and HDMI Device Link

The HDR feature on PlayStation 5 is not compatible with all TV models, so if your TV is one of them, you will need to turn it off.

Since your console is not connecting to the TV, you will need to temporarily connect it to another display to disable HDR and Device Link in Settings. After disabling these settings, try reconnecting it back to the original display.

Here’s how to do that:

  1. Turn On your PlayStation and open Settings.
  2. Go to Screen and Video. Select Video Output. Look for HDR and disable it.
  1. To disable HDMI Device Link, go back to Settings.
  2. Go to System -> HDMI.
  3. Toggle the switch to off for Enable HDMI Device Link.
