Like the title says, my PS4 randomly beeps in a series of 3 beeps and it will eject the disc randomly. When it ejects the disc sometimes it doesn't let the disc back in until I turn it off and back on. Anyone else experience this? Anyone know how to fix it? It's a launch system, btw.

I’ve seen this. Does your PS4 have actual buttons or touch
Buttons? (I’m guessing the latter).

Fat ps4? The eject button is pressing the board. Making it eject nonstop. I solved this by manually moving the button pin

Had the same problem, had to open my console and slap some tape on where the eject button is. Worked like a charm.

My launch one used to do it. Just give it a clean/dust off, particularly along the bottom of the capacitive buttons/base of the console under the buttons. That used to solve it for me.

Happened to mine too. I eventually got rid of it for pro. A quick fix was removing the little rubber piece directly underneath the base of the PS4 below the button. That helped it for some time, but then the issue came back in full force. Plenty of guides online how to take it apart but I never went that far with it.

My PS4 did the same thing.

It made me go all digital, but I've fixed it

Open your PS4 and just put some tape in front of the sensor. Very easy.

You would have to eject discs with the controller, but it's no big deal

The only way I was able to permanently fix this issue was by removing the eject button. Seeing as though you can eject the discs in software it is not really needed anyway.

I had this problem on my launch PS4 as well. I fixed it simply by pulling out the power cord, waiting like 30 seconds, insert the power cord and turning the system on again. This fixed it for me. The problem did however happen a few times after this as well, but in the end, it just went away.

It’s fixable so don’t panic. There are several levels of fix, from trying minor repairs to outright remove the eject button. You can try fixing it yourself.

I fixed mine scratching the gold pin below the PS4 cover. It never gave me issues since. Just scratch it a little with a paper clip or something. Don’t be too gentle, just give it a few scratches and put it back together.

No need to remove or disable the button. I did this once and my launch PS4 has bever given me trouble since.

It’ll be fine.

I fixed mine by pulling out that little rubber thing underneath the buttons and sort of elevating the corners the tiniest bit.
