Power Supply Connector Broke From Motherboard
I have the original model PS4 and after years of gaming, the fan went out. Ordered a new one on Amazon... I’ve never taken apart a PS4 but I’ve taken apart and replaced / fixed things in earlier consoles with no issues so I figured this would be relatively simple. Of course the PS4 demands that you dissemble the entire console to replace the fan. While doing so, when I get to the part where you disconnect the power supply from the motherboard, I could not get it off!!! I pulled and pulled, no luck. I gave it one last final hard tug and the entire connector just pulled off, fantastic.
When I say that I’ve fixed consoles in the past, that isn’t me telling you that i have any idea how to solder it back on. And would that even work? I know it’s an older PS4, do i give up on it and purchase a new one? Or is this something I can fix myself that isn’t incredibly difficult?
Here’s what I’m talking about.
Here’s some pictures... fairly simple job?
Is this a good question?
