Problem with my PS4’s HDMI port
There can be a number of problems with your HDMI port resulting in unclear or no display output. Some of the common reasons are
Most of the time, the problem is in the wire, and it is just as easy to resolve by changing the wire. You can get a new wire or borrow it from someone for the sake of testing. If this is not the case and your HDMI wire is functioning correctly, the issue must be with the hardware port, and it will be a bit more challenging to resolve.
Loose HDMI Port
If you force an HDMI cable in the socket, it can damage some of the 19 pins in the HDMI socket, and you might need to change the port entirely in order to resolve the display problem.
You can confirm by either counting the pins or seeing if the plug-in port is loose. A loose wire is due to the missing pins, and there’s no good solution other than changing the port.
How to avoid damage?
The HDMI socket is intact on the motherboard directly, and we should be very careful with it. If you have a single cable and you use it on multiple devices, plugging and unplugging the wire constantly, then you must get a new wire.
Always pace yourself while plugging in the HDMI cable as extra force can be fatal for the port. You can easily avoid hardware damage by taking good care of the console.
