Optical drive replacement question

Hi all......My grandson broke my son's PS4 optical drive by jamming a card into it......The boys say when they install a disc, it just spins and won't read the disk...I'm thinking the optical drive is bad... I was going to go online and get a new one and replace it.... If anyone has tips or tricks to try before replacing the drive, I would love to know

My question is....Is there different drives with different firmware where I need the specific model # or will any PS4 optical drive work in this...

Any advise or help would be greatly appreciated........Thx for time

Replace it with the same model, but that may not be necessary. Just taking it apart and giving it a good cleaning. As the optical drive board is paired to the motherboard, you can't replace one without the other. You can replace the mechanical and other components of the optical drive. You can read more on the product description for the replacement:

Exactly what I was looking for, thank you....I appreciate the heads up on the daughter board, I was unaware of that.....I guess it won't hurt to tear the old drive apart and see if it's fixable...

thx 4 your time


@x_tracer_x Glad I could help!
