I’ve been a avid viewer for some time and attempted a few things.
However I’ve come unstuck with my sons PS4 and can’t seem to find a straight answer anywhere.
I stripped it down and cleaned it thoroughly, reapplied the ‘Right Amount’ of Thermal Paste, and put back together.
Whilst I was doing this I thought I’d put a new SSD in to replace the old HDD, I’ve done the process years ago when putting a bigger HDD in and had no problems.
Now I get either SU-42118-6 code or I’m stuck on 99% after initialisation, left it for 4 hours and nothing.
One thing I did notice is the Blu Ray Ribbon was damaged, would that cause the issue? Also would that stop it accepting Discs?
I would like to point out that if I put the original HDD back in it boots up and plays fine.
Also new SSD works in the PC once formatted and I’ve filled it to 60% to test it.
Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
