Well, I'm not sure if it is karma or what, but I think my PS4 is DOA. I saw it was delivered and left on the porch, so when I got off work for lunch I went and got it (had been outside for almost an hour). Took it inside, got it all unpacked and hooked up.
When I power it on, the system beeps once, and the blue light bar just pulses. I didn't get a chance to try other HDMI cables or TVs, however I am done work in an hour or so.
I had just gotten the TV yesterday so it is a modern TV and I made sure it was 100% up to date. The TV has 3 HDMI ports I tried all 3, the TV Detects the cable plugged in but no video comes through.
When I get done work I am going to try changing the outlet the PS4 is plugged into, try with a different HDMI cable. If neither of the above work, will try with another TV. If I still can't get video I'll give the Safemode a try, however I found that holding on the power after it started didn't seem to do anything. I can hear what sounds like the HDD Spin up when I start it but worst case I will open it up and double check the HDD.
Im not sure if maybe because it was sitting outside in the cold it may have been affect, but as it is inside now it should be warm enough.
If none of the above gets it going.. I'll just go step by step through the Checklist on the "Blinking blue lights" info page.

Well, got through. Explained it the girl was really nice. They are sending me a box in 2-3 business days. After I send it back they will either repair it, or send me a new one within a week. She said roughly out of ~1.3m consoles sent out she knows of ~2000 service requests.Go to the full post
