Regarding the three wire plug in step 20 - is there a good way to repair this piece if, say, you pulled the wires out of the connector by accident? is there a place to get a replacement part?

lillarrypimp1993 -

You may be talking about capacitors that are critically important for the unit to function.

South30 -

You mean that little brown parts next to the desoldered HDMI port chip? Seems to be capaciators.

Check it with a multimeter: No connection through that parts: Capaciator, Connection through that parts: Coil

Ok so I was taking mine apart, and while I was separating the ribbon wire from the optical drive during step 7, I broke the top off the connector by accident. I thought I could fix it with hot glue, but my ps4 doesn't read disks (at all, doesn't even know there's a disk in the drive). Is there a way to repair this without getting a new drive?

when I bought the replacement motherboard and optical drive and installed everything, I got a message saying connect USB with software update. Is this because I'm using my original hdd from my original mobo+ optical drive that is different from the hdd my replacement parts came with?

Quaymetsu - Antwoord

Could you please tell me where you bought a replacement motherboard from as i've been looking everywhere!?

Roger flaps -

Does your blu-ray drive still work on the new motherboard? I seem to recall on the PS3 that the blu-ray drive was tied to a console, I assume you had to reformat the HDD also?

You cannot just replace the motherboard on a PS4. The motherboard is married to the logic board on the blu-ray drive. Swapping the motherboard without carrying over the original logic board will render the drive useless.

I’ve read along the guides that a BDP-020 optical drive can work with an SAA-001 motherboard, but mine still receives the CE-35888-2 error. Am I replacing the incorrect part?

Cristian Nickles - Antwoord

Hi my ps4 has stopped working and doesnt turn on at all, ive tried different outlets and different power cables for the ps4, still no luck. Ive pulled it apart and had a look at the power supply board and mother board aswell as dusted it all out. The mother board has yellow stains/ dots near the hdmi port and some other random spots around the mother board. I have the first ps4.

Does anyone know whats wrong? Id rather fix it than pay for a new one.
