Where can I buy a replacement power supply? Been ps4-less since march.

You can't, i'm in the same boat. The only option is to buy a used ps4 that perhaps won't read discs or has some issue other than power, and use it's PSU as a replacement. But good luck with that as the Sony warranty period is still active.

I just had this problem and i broke the connector.

The problem is dont pull on the base or you'll pull it off the motherboard, pull the wires and a small plug will come off

Hopefully this got to you in time :)

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?

And have you resolve your problem ?

Frederic Morelli -

flipping your ps4 upside down and apply weight directly ontop of the powerbrick may be a quick fix to your power problem

Jess Price - Reply

Thats what i did and it fixed the problem. Ty mate for sharing your knowledge.

hey im from new zealand and i was hoping if you could tell me what my problem on my ps4...... the day before my ps4 was working fine but then the next day i just couldn't on it anymore ...... then realize that i saw a cockroach in it and i took it out ....... i think it mess the power supply up but i was just wondering if it is the power supply or not .... before i buy a new power supply

shawnpuafolau - Reply

For starters, just open it up and check all the cables. Normally cockroaches don't eat electronics but if you see any damage you might not need to look further.

Roald Delvaux -

Ordered a power supply for my ps4 and it did not fix my issue so I'm thinking I got sent a defective part

Andre Burnette - Reply

Why not pull the plug from the power supply instead of the motherboard? I ask because my power supply didn't come with a cable. should it have?

Mines had a 4 wire plug and I accidentally cut two of them- what should I do to fix it or does it have to be replaced??

Carmen Tulia Troxler - Reply

where i'm going to buy the power supply??

ciuordiss - Reply

Really didn't expect it to work. I had a power surge that took out my apple time capsule as well as the PS4. Saw so many posts that suggested it might be something else other than the PSU. I had a blue light for half a second then nothing. Sometimes it wouldn't even give me that. However after replacing the PSU and following the instructions on the iFixit youtube video. I had the whole thing switched and working in about 5 minutes. Thanks so much!

Luke Currie - Reply

So I tried to turn on my ps4 and heard the usually beep but almost at the same time I heard an electric popping sound. Would that be the power supply that needs fixing..?

Walter Jones - Reply

I'm getting a PS4 from someone but I might just send it into Sony so they can see what is wrong with it I don't know what else to do with it right now

Cody green - Reply

Had a power issue and opened up the ps4 as shown. Everything looked ok, found a dead bug on the inside. Could be the reason for the Fan to go haywire. I put it back together and ran it and it ran fine for about 10min. The fan went haywire again, then the ps4 switched off. It powers on but USB ports don't work as well as the HDMI port. At a loss at the moment... going to have a burial for the PS4 tomorrow.

The T9 screwdriver doesn't unscrew one of the screws inside the console. The one on the top left corner to be exact

Gilbert “Gil-B” Onuzuruike - Reply

use tweezers to unsecrew

John Connor -

thanks for the guide, very useful.

John Connor - Reply

I removed my power supply after I heard a pop sound and my PS4 shut off. It was only turning on the blue light for a second and beeped then back off so I figured it was the problem. However, when I put new one back in, I didn't notice that the metal clips had bent. So it did the same as before. Thought it didn't work. But then we aligned those metals and put the new power source back and it worked. Just throwing out there. Just in case someone does the same as I did.

This isn't directly related to the power supply replacement. I am travelling in a campervan/motorhome and have a 12V supply. I have a 12V TV and everything else but my PS4 is going to need an inverter to step up to 240V AC then the PS4 power supply step it down to XV DC. Does anyone know the internal DV voltage of the output of the PS4 power supply and whether I could remove that entirely and power directly from the existing 12V in my van? Thanks in advance.

Are capacitors in the power supply? this is what has gone on my ps4. turns on for 3 seconds then turns off. Any ideas if cold be fixed by power supply?

Samuel - Reply

There are to possibilities. 1. You can fix it with replacing the power supply 2. There is a damage on your logic board but this is very uncommon.

Thomas Pathe -

thank you very much.

freddybowles - Reply

On step 5 what are those metal bending things attached to the Philips screws called? and can I buy replacements because one of mine snapped off, and its making me nervous to play my ps4 like that, are the bending things meant to due anything important.?

Frank - Reply

Got the blinking blue light, got it diagnosed, said it needed a new power supply. Bought new power supply from the link above, replaced the power supply, still nothing but a blinking blue light. Any ideas as to what to check next? It won't even come in in safe mode. Doesn't register that the controller is plugged in. It was dropped initially. That is what starts the problem. Any tips help. Very discouraged.

This might help you to determine if the problem comes from the psu or from the mainboard.
