PS4 Wont Start After Disasmbly

Hi Everyone,

PS4 Slim, And it had Last Saturday (22/09/17) Failed refusing to accept disks, bearing in mind it still worked, on games such as fortnight.

He Decided to take it appart and we found that most likely the disk drive needed a full replacment as cleaning it out did not fix it, When it was put back together it now bootloops, and refuses to start up, continously giving an error.

It Worked before the disk drive, why does it not now after the disassmbly as it turns on fine, and seems to have no problems other than entering the OS, he tried reinstalling the software on the HDD from a different ps4 then transfering the drive back to no avail.

Any Suggestions would be helpful

I think u have to use the circuit board from the old drive to make it work because it is registered to that mother board. that’s what i’ve heard atleast.

Depends on what circuit board you are referring to. For the Bluray drive board it must be the same one that came with the console or it'll refuse to allow re-initalising system software on the console.

For the hard drive it can't be transferred just from one PS4 to another without formatting / reinitalising it, it'll prompt you to format the drive.

I recommend double checking the cable for the power supply and check if it's seated in properly.

I have linked a guide if needed:

Tried to re-seat, the PS4 has done at least 4000-5000 Hours, its been under heavy use for nearly 2 Years, Judging its age, repairing it may not be recommended , as its not just the laser that does not work,its the whole disk drive refusing.

Its most likely a Daughter board refusing the PS4 to start. Hes going to just have to a buy new one!

Exactly what happened to me when a repair shop informed me after replacing the Blu Ray drive on my original PS4 console with multiple brand new compatible Blu Ray drives that it was a motherboard issue, and I was informed that I had to buy a new console in order to have one with a working Blu Ray drive! My console was also 5 years old though since I bought it in 2013 around the same time as my Day One Xbox One...
