I’m really at a loss and am seeking advice.
I got given a PS4 orginal (CUH-1216b) to try and repair over lockdown as a project. It was turning on and running fine, but the disc drive wouldn’t accept discs and I was getting the SU42118-6 error code during an update. The only thing that works on the disc drive is that the eject button makes a sound when you press it, other than that no power to the actual drive so pressing the button results in nothing.
I went for the easy fixes first, replaced the ribbon cables and the disc drive, but still the same issue. I’ve also checked the fuses on the motherboard (SAC-001) and they all appear to be fine with no obvious damage to anything else on the board.
So am I right in thinking this leads to it being a chip on the motheboard that’s busted? If so what chip could it be?
Also when I’m checking the fuses… Is the fuse F5001 the one I’ve highlighted red or blue in the picture?
Thanks in advance for any help. I’ve gotten so many answers from this forum in the past so hopefully you can do it one more time!
