So, you just got your new PS5 and you can’t wait for it to become your only way to play!
Though unfortunately like any piece of tech, the machine is not free from issues.
If you come across a major problem that you just cannot fix, sometimes a complete reset is what you need!
Yes, turning it off and on again can work, but this solution will go a little bit further.
If you need to reset your console, to factory defaults, here’s how to do it!
How to Reset a PS5 Console
If you want to reset your PS5, make sure your other options have been exhausted.
If you wipe all of your console’s data, you will lose anything you haven’t backed up.
With that all said, here is our guide:
Step 1 - Go over to your console’s Settings menu
Step 2 - Then select System Software
Step 3 - From here, go to Reset options
Step 4 - Choose to Reset your console
Step 5 - Hit Reset
With that all done, your PS5 should begin resetting itself to factory defaults.
Hopefully, this should fix any issues you were having, or make your console safer to trade-in to store.
We hope this helps, and check out our other guides for more guidance if you need it!
