PS4 doesn't start blinks blue

Hey everyone,

I have a PS4 which won't start. All that happens is that the blue light turns on and continuously dims and brightens again. No white light appears, and the PS4 doesn't respond to the controller. I've already tried using a different power supply, but no luck there. I'd greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance,

Minas

This is a different PS4 to the one mentioned in my other thread.

After quite some time searching I’ve come to the conclusion that it is probably a problem with the APU chip. The next step now will be to take a look at reflowing the motherboard, but I highly doubt it will work permenantly.

Anyway, thanks for all the help!

Since I've tried with different TV's, Power Supplies and Hard drives, I can guess it's only an internal issue. :/

I will check and see if I can find a solution other than contacting Sony.

Any luck yet?

I apologize, I think you are correct in your determination of the APU chip. It requires microsoldering and could be difficult to repair. I wouldn't use the heat gun method as this is likely to do more damage than fix the issue.

I would check with Louis Rossman to see if they are able to change this for you.

I tried this repair and couldn't get my PS4 repaired. Though I did fix my gaming problem.
