Your issue sounds similar to what Kotaku experienced with one of their review units. This post/video states they were able to fix it, might be worth a look

I am having the same problem just says Please Wait. Oh well one would should have assumed the servers would be overwhelmed. But then if they expect to sell 3mil before the end of the year they should have expected it to.

i only saw your last few posts, but have you tried a different hdmi port on your tv? Or verify with something else that your tv hdmi port is working properly?

Have you guys tried to reboot and login as guest? Should be enough to at least play any disc based games you have.

Yeah, I really REALLY wanted to have Need for Speed over the weekend. I thought Amazon was just showing it not shipped yet because it was only coming a 2 hours shipping drive. Turns out they were out I guess.

UPS driver showed up at 2:30pm EST. By 2:50pm I was ready to go (had a network/router related issue). No issues downloading the Day 1 update. Everything went smooth, although I crossed my fingers when the console rebooted after the update finished. Luckily, it came right back up. For reference, I'm going from the PS4 into a 5-port automatic HDMI switch (Kinivo brand, works flawlessly), with the switch going into my receiver and then the HDMI out of the receiver going to the TV. No handshake issues to speak of. I'm using mostly Bluerigger cables from Amazon.

I am having some issues with PSN kicking me out occasionally, but one of the nice things about the OS that I like is that it continues to download games from the Store even if I'm not signed in. Don't ask me how that works, but I'm glad it does. It also works for patches as well. I made it a point to put in all my game discs and let the system queue up the updates so I wouldn't have to worry about it. Overall, the OS is super responsive and instantaneous when hitting the PS button while in game. Sharing screenshots and videos to Facebook from the Share button is super simple and quick. I'm pretty impressed with the quality of the recorded video and the screenshots look really nice. Haven't tried streaming or anything.

As for the games I've tried so far, here are my quick impressions (in order of playing them, about 10 minutes each):

Call of Duty Ghosts - took me a second to get used to the overall sharpness and texture detail. One detailed looking game. Some definite framerate hiccups occasionally but nothing major. Sound is awesome.
Knack - seemed pretty generic but a nice change of pace from the FPSs. Graphics aren't that impressive but look nice. Controls are a bit wonky at first.
Battlefield 4 - I thought CoD Ghosts looked good, but this ups that. It may not come off as sharp as CoD, but to me it looked more fluid. Both games controlled similarly, but BF4 felt more weighty.
Killzone Shadow Fall - Easily the best looking of the bunch (FPS anyway). Even though it's 30FPS, it controls very well and I couldn't detect any framerate hiccups.
Assassin's Creed IV - still can't tell if the 1080p has been patched in (don't think it has, menus aren't quite as sharp), but it still looks insanely detailed. Framerate was rock solid.

I think it's worth mentioning that aside from the rare jagged edge I saw in AC4, aliasing/jaggies are VERY hard to detect. They are there if you are looking for them, but you have to look really close. Also, not a single screen tear to speak of.

Overall, I'm damn impressed. Haven't even touched Resogun or Contrast yet, but they are sitting on my hard drive.Really glad I picked one up. No regrets so far.

That is a bummer. My UPS guys showed up at 9AM while I was home. I thought, man, too bad I hadn't relied on that instead of going to the midnight launch, he never shows up before 3pm.

That's the same game I'm waiting for, it looks amazing. December 30 delivery date would be horrible for a "release game."

Loving this machine, no issues what so ever.
I will however say, the headset that comes with it blows. Bought a rocketfish from bb and it a little better.hopefully something nicer will come along. Overall, very impressed.

That baby is a million times better than the PS4. Consoles will always launch, you'll only have a few babies ;-)

I know for me that section was empty this morning until after I had accessed the friends menu. Hopefully will be able to check it out more tonight.

What is your PSN ID in case I don't have you already?

Same as my name here, feel free to add me anyone. Play a lot of genres, but BF and KZ are my go to MP games.

Taking a short break, but I'll be streaming here again in 30 min or so: http://ustre.am/178D0

I'm a Prime member and my PS4 was shipped via ground as well. I would have given Amazon hell but it's on the UPS truck now for delivery.

Check the HDMI pins on the PS4. A few places have reported them being bent for some reason, and it's not getting a connection to send a signal.

Sounds like a bad batch went out with this issue: http://kotaku.com/good-news-about-our-once-broken-ps4-1464813671

They heard us that we Americans have bigger hands, but apparently they think we have huge ears too. How the hell are you supposed to put that ear bud all the way in?

Mine just turned 2 and and is a Ghibli freak so nearly every screen has Totoro, Kiki, Arietty, Monsters Inc, or Nemo on it. My only game time is the weekends if I stay up late. I suppose sooner or later she can co op with me.

I'm in, but ti also says down for maintenance. I can play KZSF MP thought.

Seems to me the authorization servers and the social feature stuff is not working right or offline, but some other stuff is up. Might be ok if you can get in, or if you are in just don't sign out. You can always back out o the account stuff and sign in as a guest to play some SP as well.
