Testing a PS4 Slim. It boots, I can set up the console and hit the menu.
I install a game and it gets about 1/3 of the way and crashes. After the first crash, it crashes sooner the 2nd time and then I can basically only get to safe mode and it crashes during any function I try there.
I’ve tried two power supplies, two hard drives, reinitialize, reinstall system software, rebuilding the data base, installing a different game but the symptoms are identical.
I don’t know much about the history. I bought it from a guy, he said it just started shutting off on him so they bought a new one.
I’ve cleaned the console top to bottom. Has thermal paste and all thermal pads. Nothing looked out of the ordinary on the MB.
I’m stumped and it’s driving me mad lol
Anything would help greatly!
