Lag, loading & sound problems

Created 20/07/2019

Ever since the update 6.72 i've been having problems with my PS slim with lag and loading problems on the home screen and sound issues when playing a game. Is this happening with anyone else, if so did you fix it or do i have to wait for the next update?

    No problems with both of my PS4 systems. 

    I suggest you start the PS4 in safe mode and run option 5 rebuild the database.

    If problems still persists run safe mode again and select option 3 Update System Software then update over the Internet to reflash the system software.

    Nope didn't work, after it restarted it came up rebuilding database for a second then it came to the home screen. But when i try again to update in safe mode it says 6.72 is available.

    I'm having the same issues. On the main screen, I press left or right, and the tone sounds about a second or two after. Tried playing a movie this afternoon, but the audio lag meant watching was highly unenjoyable. Not sure how to fix it...

    It happens the same to me. And my upload speed became too low after the 6.72 update
