The flashing blue light on a PS4 is nicknamed the “Blue Light of Death” or “BLOD”. This light is an indication of a hardware failure, often due to a failed APU, power supply or memory chips. There are a handful of reasons for what causes PlayStation 4 Blue Light of Death errors, such as:
- The air vents are blocked, either from furniture or dust inside of it.
- The games being played on it require it to work harder than usual.
- It’s being used for hours on end without breaks to cool down.
