Is your PlayStation 4 ejecting discs without your input, or attempting to eject a non-existent disc when the drive is empty? First off, relax -- your PS4 isn't possessed by a Blu-ray-hating phantom. This is a common issue, and Sony has issued a tutorial video demonstrating a quick fix for affected users.

The process involves holding down the PlayStation 4's power button until you hear two beeps, waiting thirty seconds, and then unplugging the console from its power source for three minutes. Afterward, your PS4 should resume normal operation. If it doesn't, Sony advises visiting its Online Service Request page for a repair order.

How's your PS4 holding up? Here's hoping the classic "turn it off and turn it on again" approach fixes whatever problems you may be experiencing. Even at its worst, though, the PS4's ejecting issue seems downright tame compared to the disc-launching PSP-1000. That thing could put someone's eye out.
