I Paid $224 for a BROKEN PS4 Pro Death Stranding - I Was Disappointed

I Paid $224 for a BROKEN PS4 Pro Death Stranding - I Was Disappointed - The listing was for a broken/for parts console from eBay but no indication of what was wrong with it. After some testing I found it had the blue light of death (BLOD) but when I opened it up there was nothing obviously wrong so I'm guessing the problem is something with the APU chip. Since I have a working PS4 Pro motherboard sitting around I decided to put it in and see if that would work. Not a very practical fix but at least I was able to get it working.

About This Video: I bought a broken PS4 Pro Death Stranding edition for $224 from eBay. No real indication what was wrong with it, just being sold for parts, but the box had an "inspected by Best Buy" sticker so this might have been a customer return or from a salvage lot. Unfortunately, when I got to testing it had the blue light of death (BLOD). Once I opened it up there was nothing obviously wrong so I'm guessing the problem is something with the APU chip. Luckily, I happen to have a working PS4 Pro motherboard sitting around so I decided to put it in and see if that would work. Not a very practical fix but at least I was able to get it working.

    That PS4 looked brand-new, clean as a whistle no dust in fan or dirt,how can it have blue light of death? Wouldn't this be under warranty still (before u opened it obv). U should have tried to reball it. I thought blue light of death was from over heating?but no dust?

    Re-balling some chips isn't that hard, especially the smaller ones with the slightly larger solder balls. Is that a particularly difficult chip to re-ball, and does re-balling it actually fix the machine?

    @TronicsFix I have a problem with my left joycon, wonder if you can suggest a fix. Recently I've noticed that the click (when you click it down) is activating on the slightest touch of the stick, which is making some games hard to play. Just move the stick gently and it registers something like 4-5 clicks in one go. I thought it was a bad stick so bought a replacement and fitted it but this is the same. The slightest touch and it registers as many clicks.

    @TronicsFix - I am having some trouble... I can not find anything on google, maybe you could help? My Xbox one S 500gb will not play games. It will download apps and games fine, it will run apps just fine, but games... digital games, disc games, all of it. It doesn’t play it’ll just crash! I’ve tried every OSU1 method I could find, I’ve bought a brand new 1tb HDD and watched at least 18 videos to partition it properly, I’ve formatted both drives at least 6 times; I’ve done everything I found... it will not play games! It is updated to the most recent dashboard when I check on the console itself. When I check the troubleshoot menu it says I’m on dash 19041.4333 dev build. It will play dvds, it will read a game disc but they don’t play. Digitals do not play either! Help? What could it possibly be.

    Yo bois I have a problem with my Ps4 disk drive its a Blackops 3 1215b I think . I notice overheating so I decide to take it apart again to clear all of the dust out since that what fix it before, and what do ya know it fix the overheating. But when I put the ps4 back together the cd drive wouldnt read the disc at all it would grab and spin but not read it, I even open a new one just to test if it was my discs. It wasnt my discs. So I open it up agian and decide to run it with out the caseing just to see if it was moving or not, etc. It stop moving entirely, the lazer, the claws, nothing moved after i open it agian for some apparent reason. Nothing looks damaged at all even the wires are in good shape also they are put in the right way. Everything works exept the cd drive. What yall could think???

Wud be nice to see u truly revive a dead ps4 from its grave, Not giving up or saying its unfixable when u knw there r people out there that can actually fix it. I hail all the way from Nigeria and the issue i have is I don't have a controller. All i get here are fakes, very fake they barely last 2weeks without developing some fault. I wud really appreciate a ps4 controller from you. Even if its a fixed one. Thanx

I’ve had to use it recently and have come across an issue where it loads the drive, but have massive lags whilst loading the disk. Would that be drive issue? Can it be the cable connecting the drive? Any insight would be highly appreciated! Have a great day! Gabor

Seller wouldn’t accept my return and eBay refunded me, then the seller never sent a return label, so it’ll be my first soldering project once I figure out what’s wrong.
