Randomly turns off, anything like a stress test?
Good morning, picked up another PS4 original (4th or 5th to be exact) to repair and sell. So this isn’t my first rodeo in repairing these.
The unit I picked up looks flawless, never even opened all stickers intact, the guy claimed that after 3-4hours the unit shuts off. Got it home, looked quite dusty so I opened it up and blew all the dust out. Turned it on last night and all seemed fine, was rather late so I left it running overnight with just the home screen and this morning the unit was still running.
I don’t have 3-4hours to sit and play a game on it lol is there anything like a stress test that I can do to see what actually happens when and if the unit shuts down? Would playing netflix with a movie do it? I looked at the error log history cause the guy didnt even wipe the PS4 and none of the errors there seem important just DNS errors etc.
I’m guessing it could be the thermal paste, but I figured if I can spare myself from having to tear this open I rather wouldn’t.
Anyways, let me know what you think!
Is this a good question?
