I got a PS4 (CUH-1116A, SAB-001) which had a supply problem (broken connector on the supply board). I fixed it, inserted new HDD (missing old one) and launched it. Safe mode appeared, so I inserted the USB flash with an update and clicked reinstall. Unfortunately PS4 didn’t want to reinstall the system.
Then I found that the mounted daughter board is the BDP-010, but the laser is the KES490 (what I suppose is that somebody has changed the laser to the wrong one). The laser’s ribbon was insterted in the middle of the wide connector (could that damage the daughter board?). I replaced the ribbon between the motherboard and the daughter board (not all pins had continuity) and I disconnected all ribbons from the optical drive. Still PS4 didn’t want to do the install.
My questions are:
- Was SAB-001 being sold with BDP-010 and KES860 laser? Is it possible that I have a wrong daughter board? I don’t see any resolder signs around the Renesas chip.
- Can I install the system on a new HDD using only the daughter board (no laser connected)?
Thank you for any advice,
