I recently cleaned out my PS4 console, but accidentally pulled out the power supply connector. I followed your video and sent it in to get soldered, but they said that it’s still not powering on. They said it might have something to do with the motherboard. I was wondering what the cost would be to try and fix it, and what would happen if it’s something that’s not fixable? Would the motherboard be replaced, or just sent back?

I think to replace the motherboard costs £40 including labour

I have taken my ps4 apart that was gifted to me by my friend who couldn’t pay me back i had to replace the fan heat shield and ribbon before that the disk drive while playing any games it would eject the game for no reason im guessing it was early signs of it going bad i did watch your video on fixing it and took it apart as you shown in your videos and it looked the same nothing was loose or out of the ordinary so when putting back it seems fine but it wont take any movies or games can you email me for repair info thabks for your time
