    Welcome to the forum, you're going to need to provide more detail for anyone to be able to assist you.

    Ah, there are a few ways to fix this:

     

    1) Shut the PS4 down, then remove the power cord from the back, keep pressing the power button (every few seconds) till it stops beeping and trying to turn on, then reinsert the power chord and turn the PS4 back on.

     

    If that fails to fix it:

     

    2) Turn the PS4 off, turn it on its side and disconnect the power chord, again keep pressing the power button till it stops trying to turn on then reinsert the power chord and turn back on, then shut it down again and return it to its normal position if usually horizontal.

     

    If that also fails:

     

    3) Turn off the PS4, then hold the power button down for 7 seconds, you should boot into a menu, select "rebuild Database" and let it finish, that should do it.

     

    If all those fail, you may have to give Sony a call.

    I just recently bought Prey on disc and I put it in to install and it installed up to the end of the download and now it just shows the game with a pause symbol on it. And when I click on it it does nothing. Help!?

    As I replied in the other thread you created on the same - Wait for it to finish installing fully? It most likely has now I would imagine.

    I havent had this problem with my own ps4 but my nephews just got crash bandicoot and star wars battlefront 2. It gets to a certain point when downloading and then the game crashs to the home screen with the games install paused. They managed to get crash bandicoot working but starwars isnt working still.

    I am having a problem, I haven't had this issue before but basically I am trying to install Resident Evil 7 and I finish the first 6GB update then it says "Ready to install" but I click "Start" and nothing happens so I cannot play the game as the update wont start, I have 144.6GB free on my hard drive and the game only needs 23GB, The game on the main home screen has a pause button on it as well.

    Any help would be highly appreciated <3
