OK, well where is this sensor located on the Blu ray drive? I have the older fatter ps4 version. I do t know the model number sadly but the HD is a 500gb.
I've read the new 5.05 firmware update causes problems w faulty blu ray drives.
The issue began 3 days ago. I spilled a bottle of water and about 25% got on my console. I immediately unplugged all, dried it up, and used a hair dryer. Opened it up to check for water, nothing. Closed console but not all the way. When I tried to insert a game, it would not load. The motor made a weird engaging like sound. When no disk was in. I tried to force feed disk, but dust drive wouldn't engage. The rollers are fine, fuses all fine, back switches respond. It's just, what the heck actually recognizes that a game is being inserted so the console can begin taking in the game? What is it called and its location?
When I stick a blu ray in the drive with it opened and closed it back and seal the connectors etc, it eventually shows a question mark on the screen where the title normally displays n says unrecognizable. Sorry for length but I'm trying to be detailed here. One other thing, the left roller does look slightly higher than the right.
I'm so out of options n don't really have the cash to buy a new drive but IF I did, I know I need to keep the original logic board and swap it, but if my ic chip is faulty or something? Could by ohm reader detect it? It detects the dudes and all are fine as are the capacitors n transistors. I'm guessing ic chip should be cool to?
But ya the main question is, what actually tells the drive to hey wake up and accept this disc! What engages the rollers to spin? Cuz I think that's my culprit. Thank u, ur videos are amazing
