So I as the title says I have a ps4 with the error code of CE-35888-2 which is usually caused by a disk drive replacement and not matching the og sister board with the new disk drive. I got this ps4 and the warranty labels were still intact. I turned it on and everything functions normally, except for the disk drive. It recognizes games but won’t play them due to the above error code. It also will not update to 7.02 because of this error code. And yes I have read tronics’ article on this, but it doesn’t necessarily apply to this circumstance.
Is it possible that the seller could have fudged the warranty stickers? They simply said that this console wouldn’t update. If they did unsuccessfully install the disk drive I may be a little boned here. Any ideas here?
