Hi, I just fixed my ps4 slim that wasn’t allowing me to reinstall system hardware that was fixed by just buying a new HDD. But I see that a different HDD isn’t your problem. I believe the CE-34335-8 error brings up a screen saying “Cannot access system storage”… is this right? Iv’e seen problems like this before mostly the solutions would be to blow inside the HDD captivity, or just buying a completely new HDD.
I suggest just buying a new one instead of formatting used ones. I have a link for you for the same exact one I used for my PS4 slim…I know you don’t want to throw money for new parts that may not work. But this listing has free returns so why not at least try. After installing the new HDD and it is allowing you to continue to safe mode by holding power until 2 beeps Im guessing the HDD works and all you have to do is reinstall the system hardware.
The forums do now allow me to copy a link. So copy and paste the title below into eBay and the first choice should be the same exact HDD I bought
MaxDigital 1TB 5400RPM SATA 3Gb/s PS4 2.5" Hard Drive (PS3,PS4,PS4 Slim,PS4 Pro)
