Title:

Display won't work after cleaning

Text:

My son's ps4 was overheating.  It would make a loud noise and then power down.  I followed one of your videos and took it apart cleaned everything. The heat sink was jammed packed with dust.  I cleaned and replaced the thermal paste and put it back together.  I plugged it in and it turned on and sounded like it was running really smooth.  I could hear the fan going but now the display won't work.  My tv says no signal.  It worked before I started.  I used a flash light to check the hdmi port and theft are no bent or broken prongs.  I took back apart and re watched the video and put it back together again and have the same problem.  What did I do wrong?
