Sounds out of sync

Created 18/07/2019

I believe this issue started after one of the system updates released this year. After having the console on for a few hours the sounds starts to go out of sync, it's lagging behind in games, on the home screen, everywhere. I have tried speakers, external speakers and earphones connected to the controller, nothing works. Except restarting the console. Ideas? Solution?

    Start the PS4 in safe mode and run option 5 rebuild the database.

    It could be the HDD may need replacing but to rule that out initialise the system and re-install the system software via the safe mode menu.

    Before performing a system initialisation backup any important save data to USB and/or the PS+ cloud storage.
