Possible cause for overheating issues?

#1tkdkid717Posted 11/15/2013 11:43:41 PM
Ill just start by saying that my PS4 is still working (for now). Anyway, on the vent on the left hand side of the console, i saw a small piece of fabric sticking out. It was easy enough for me to grab it. Anyways, it definitely isn't from anywhere near where my console was unpacked or set up. It almost looks like guaze. Is it possible that the material that was being used to wipe off the consoles was shedding and got caught inside at the factory? I know its a long shot.

Some people are having issues where either the fan is stuck or their console shows a red light.(red light means overheated)

There hasn't been a single overheating issue apart from that French demonstaration which wasn't even confirmed.

Xbox fanboys just blew that way out of proportion.

I have seen several today, Unless you are assuming that those were trolls, but i dont think they were. Several were documented on the Reddit list as well.

TC they're trolling you. My PS3 won't last more than 3 minutes before shutting itself off because of "overheating"

I believe the PS4 will tell you itself it's overheating. So unless that feature is disable or not working properly it should not just overheat without fair warning.
