Gonna do this tomorrow, I'm just hoping this is what's wrong with it.

A few months ago something popped in the system and I smelt a burning scent.

Just be careful when pulling up power supply on the left side facing you when Ps4 is upside-down.

Just received my tools and power supply for my ps4 and I replaced it just like the guidelines said but nothing happens but the same issues. Heard a beep, blue light came on, heard a click then back off again. Please tell me I didn't just wasted $70?
