  • We have received reports of intermittent audio issues across the dashboard, games, and apps. If you encounter such issues, please ensure that you have the latest firmware updates for your TV and other equipment. If the problem persists, you may need to contact the manufacturer for assistance.
    • Note: If the latest firmware updates do not resolve the audio issues, please submit feedback via “Report a Problem” immediately, selecting the category “Console experiences” and “Console Audio Output Issues.” Please provide as much information as possible to help us understand the problem.


  • We are currently investigating reports of network connectivity issues upon booting the console. If you experience this problem, please report it via “Report a Problem” as soon as possible.

Remember to utilize the Report a Problem feature to keep us informed about any issues you encounter. Although we might not be able to respond to everyone individually, the data we collect is crucial for finding solutions.
