    If I touch the HDMI cable in the back of the PS4 the screen flickers and sometimes loses signal completely.. I have had a look online and seen that it was a common fault on some systems sold, has anyone come across this issue at all? and if so, did you manage to fix it, or did you send it in for repair? and finally how easy was the process? I am not too bothered at the moment as I have managed to get it working as long as the cables dont get knocked but I am interested to know of anyone else's experiences with this issue.

    Thanks

    i returned my original launch Playstation 4 because of screen flickering and was replaced a few days later and all is ok.

    Again try changing the HDMI cables around as this has been the cause of many issues on the playstation 4s
