Hello, I apologize this may be kinda long winded.
I’m in a bit of a spot with a PS4 a coworker brought to me to clean and to reapply the thermal paste. It would power on and work for 10 -15 minutes then power down. All the while the fan would be running for all it’s worth.
No blue warning screen and no 3 beeps to signal an over heating issue. It would just shut down, once it cooled down you could repeat the process.
I tore the system down cleaned an unbelievable amount of dirt out of it and applied fresh thermal compound. While I was inside I noticed the lithium Ion battery had leaked pretty bad. There was corrosion around the top of the battery and pooled up in and around the socket. I cleaned the area thoroughly and inserted a new battery. The battery had swelled. It was difficult to remove.
It’s back together and the disc drive does not function. It will not take a disc nor will it eject if there is one in the drive. The eject button will sound once if there is a disc in the drive and twice if empty. When the system is in a powered off state attempting to insert a disc will turn it on. The flex cables from the main board to the drive are in good shape. No damage that can be visibly seen. It will not spin up when there is a disc fully inserted either. Also the settings that the battery controlled it will not keep. If you set the date and time, power it down and remove the main power. Then power it back up it forgets everything.
Thanks in advance.
