Unusual failure of the PlayStation 5 - the game console fails when mounted vertically
Service centers do not recommend installing the PlayStation 5 vertically. In this position, the console fails faster.
Here's What We Know
The reason is that the liquid metal, which is used for cooling, simply runs down and gets on the internal components. This causes the PlayStation 5 to fail. The only thing left to remember here are the words of Jim Parsons' character in The Bing Bang Theory series about heartless gravity.
We do not have statistics, but it is likely that PlayStation 5 owners are massively placing the console vertically, ie, the problem must be massive. But they started talking about it only more than two years after the announcement of the console.
It is also worth noting that the "fat" version of the PlayStation 5 is more at risk of failure. This is due to the vibration that occurs during the operation of the Blu-ray drive.
