Is it powering on at all? Is the controller itself turning on?

Our TV did this, was the dodgy foxtel connection..

Tried a different USB port? When I said controller, I meant the PS4 controller.

Otherwise, Google?

Did you try the hard reset of the PS4 etc? Hold down power button for 7 seconds etc.

New PS4 is cheaper than a TV...

Don't know if you've heard of Aldi, but I noticed today that they seem to have a special on large screen TVs.

For peace of mind buy something with a 3 or more year warranty. I bought 40" Changhong FHD..it died afte 2 years and 9 months.....rang them up....they sent out a service guy who said the motherboard had died....replaced the tv with a new one.....all done in a week.

I think he would be in breach of his 'not to be within 100 yards of Aldi' court ruling...

I'm a bit late with this - an Ola ad triggered thinking about it.

About 3 weeks ago, I had to get myself to the hospital for an operation but couldn't drive myself there. So I needed a taxi. I called the local cab number "I'll get back to you". I waited a little while but no callback (they never did callback). So I called Silvertop/Premium and was put on hold .... I eventually gave up and went next door and asked for a lift which was thankfully granted.

I don't have much need for taxis but I've had problems before with booked cabs not turning up etc.

Although getting a cab home from the hospital was so easy with a very effective push a button service on the hospital wall - as it has been on other occasions. 

With uber and ola around these days and cabbies not happy about the competition maybe improving their service would be to their benefit!

I had a meeting for work so I went down to the taxi rank outside the office

I get in the taxi and say where I'm going. If I was to walk there, it would be 20 minutes or so but the meeting was in 10-ish.

Taxi driver goes, "Nah, that's so close. That's less than $10. I'm not doing that. Just walk, it's just down the street"

I was going to be late, didn't want to argue, so I was like, "Well you're not really supposed to do that" (it is illegal after all) and got out. Went to the second cab on the rank who was confused because the driver was like, "Umm, I'm not in front?"

I explained the situation and the driver got out and berated the front taxi's driver.

Got to my meeting on time but found it funny how the second driver just told me to take Ola or Uber next time.

 

WRGMG is the first taxi driver. I'm thinking: mate, it's 11am on a workday in a taxi rank next to an office building, do you really think you'll get anything good?

Yeah, he'd be expecting a fare to like North Sydney or the Airport or something.

He takes you, gets 5 bucks or whatever, and then he has to go to the back of the line and wait for ages.
