So I’ve taken over for a friend. Trying to get his son’s PS4 back and running again.
The original issue was just simply to change the APU paste and he replaced the CMOS and cooling fan. After that it wouldn’t boot or anything.
So I’ve taken over. I’ve looked over this entire console. I can’t figure out the issue?
I’ve tested the PSU voltage, changed the 4-pin cable from PSU to the board, checked the pin connector on the board and I can see all four making contact, checked the actual power button on the board, checked all the ribbon cables and connectors, put the old fan back in and tried to boot again… everything I can think of. I can’t get anything???
What am I forgetting to check?? What should I do next???
