    What size washers

    andre daniels - Yanıt

    I think any size will work as long as tou can screw the plate back down, and they don't extend past the cover for your PS4

    What are washers

    Andy Pacheco - Yanıt

    Washers are flat round pieces of metal with a hole in the middle. You can see two of them in the first photo.

  8. After third washer has been installed and the screws have been tightened touch the power pad on the motherboard. If the PS4 makes no noise and shows no lights then the screws are too tight...loosen screws very slightly (about 1/8 turn) and try to power it on again. Do this until the console powers on.

    • If the console still turns on and back off after these steps have been done then this fix will not work for your PS4.

    I am wondering the significance of this fix. I have watched multiple videos ( at least 20) read guides , etc. nobody explains why this works. Does it have something to do with electricity conducting through this bracket? Sorry I am not much of an electronics guy I just love to learn why things won't work. And am also trying to repair my PS4 as well. This method works sometimes but then sometimes my PS4 fails .

    Blake Hannan - Yanıt

    If you are resorting to this fix, the heart of your PS4 is likely irreversibly damaged. By adding the washers you are making the clamp apply more pressure on the APU (main GPU/processor). There is likely a cracked solder connection and this helps to make the joint. This is not a permanent fix. If it brings more life to your system and let's you keep gaming, then it's definitely worth a try.

    Patryk Walters - Yanıt

  9. If your PS4 will not turn on (or turns on and right back off) after you have already had it working, try taking the cover back off and tighten the screws on the plate. If the screws are too tight the PS4 will not work at all. Slightly loosen until the system turns on. Be cautious about having the console plugged in. Possible but not recommended.

    • If you have your whole cover off of your PS4, and it is working properly, be sure to replace the cover. The cover is designed to distribute air from the fan and keep the system cool. It will cause it to turn off on its own if over heated.

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites [|]best dns servers for gaming I stumbleupon every day. It's always useful to read through articles from other authors and practice something from other sites.

    Mi PS4 enciende pero no proyecta nada en el televisor no escucho ruido ni del abanico como si estuviera apagado. No hay problema de luz azul porque se mantiene blanca , verifique el cable HDMI y esta correcto, en el televisor marca que no hay señal del PS4. Que puede estar pasando?

    Tengo mi PS4 enciende, no tiene problema de luz azul, pero no proyecta nada al televisor, el televisor marca sin señal no se escucha ningún ruido ni del abanico del PS4. Que puede estar pasando hace unos días estaba funcionando perfectamente. Verifique el cable HDMI y esta bien.

    Luis Wever - Yanıt

    I performed this repair today and my PS4 is working perfectly! If you have a machine that is not working properly, give this a shot. This cost me less than $10 including buying the Torx T8 tool.

Can't believe it worked! My PS4 has been sitting useless for so long and I felt to good when I did this today and it seemed completely normal again. We'll see if this works out over time or if it starts doing the same thing again. One thing I don't get is why they don't specify the washer size you'll need if you don't want to buy the entire kit, but I guess that's just marketing. Thus, I tore squares of glossy paper (a picture I had laying around) and poked them into the nails instead of washers. Works just as well for me!

Marco Arana - Yanıt

What size washers are needed for this

Rahan Ullah -

has this fixed your system permanently? did you have any problems since your last post?

tarnold844 -

and it will for a few day/weeks at most then it will fail again

ravendrow -

What did you do to fix it after this failed I am having that problem as well . Is it a power supply issue

Blake Hannan -

it will most likely be an APU chip out of place, if this is so, throw your system away, it is dead permanently

Un chained -

Excellent work from ifixit! The ps4 worked fine again!!

xaris9113 - Yanıt

Yay! It worked! I was so worried about having to spend the money to have my sons ps4 repaired.. Thank you!!! I did it myself (this mom rocks!)

THANK YOU!! bought a ps4 off kijiji and it had this problem. did as u said, works amazing!! KUDOS!!!!

Costas Chionidis - Yanıt

What size washer do I need for this?

rjfaure96 - Yanıt

What's the idea behind this - that the heat sink is not properly seated?

Nat - Yanıt

The solder joints between the motherboard and APU go bad and this helps to restore the connection in some cases.

TronicsFix -

I guess it’s less risky than using flux and heat gun to reflow the solder connection. You’d need the correct heat gun attachment, right temperature, and skills to pull off a reflow. Bravo!

genericpersonemail -

can they be metal washers or plastic?

ashcody - Yanıt

It worked for me but I'm wondering how long the fix will last? If I want a reliable system I'm thinking of selling and getting either a slim or pro.

John Puopolo - Yanıt

Fix worked then same problem occurred again. added third washer but now fan is running full blast and unit seems to not be cooling down. Solutions??

Robert Reynolds - Yanıt

I get an error message stating that the remote controls needs to be charged. After charging the pedals the same message remains and it won't allow us to control the game. This is both controls.

ronthecollector - Yanıt

What size are the washers

pizamisa12 - Yanıt

1mm should do fine. Guess metal over plastic, although the composites don’t deform under heat as you’d think they would…

steve winter - Yanıt

is this fix permanent or is it used to scrape by until you can afford to a re balling?

tarnold844 - Yanıt

My PS4 does not have the screws where you put the washers on I have the original PS4 but it does not have the shiny material on the left top of the system I really need a reply I need help badly

Demarko Hill - Yanıt

Worked I guess the plate can not be touching the metal plate still trying to understand the why behind it got fixed

Omarxito Alonxo - Yanıt

This is not a repair, it might get the console to work for few days but it is not a real or permanent fix. The actual reason for the problem is one of two things, a bad soldering connection between the APU chip and the motherboard or a bad soldering connection between one or more of the graphics memory chips - 8 to 16 per console depends on the model - and the motherboard, using washers will not fix soldering issues so the problem still there even if the console work temporarily . The actual solution and real repair is Reballing the APU chip to fix the broken soldering connection and if that doesn’t fix the problem then Reballing all graphics memory chips is a must. You need to find a real professional repair company that really do Reballing to fix the console. nothing else will work. Good luck all.

Does a power supply has anything to do with a 3 seconds cutoff?. Or this method is worth a try?

Why Blunt - Yanıt

Grazie mille … avevo un problema di riavvio sulla ps4, ogni volta dovevo staccare la spina due volte prima di riaccenderla. Al riavvio faceva doppio click e poi niente. Ho messo due rondelle come descritto e problema risolto!

Fantastico di nuovo grazie mille!

clads - Yanıt

Just a comment that this fix also appears to have fixed my issue. My PS4 was just freezing in the middle of a game, or even randomly at the menus. Sometimes it wouldn’t power on, and sometimes it would. After installing just one washer, it appears to be significantly more stable.

Eric - Yanıt

Hola, alguien que me pueda orientar, hice el procedimiento y anteriormente el PS4 se quedaba con luz azul siempre y no pasaba de ahi. Ahora la luz se torna blanca pero no da imagen en el TV.

Agradezco cualquier comentario.

Jorge Guillen - Yanıt

Mine dose not have the plate. Is there a fix for these models.

Darkus Garvey - Yanıt

La mienne démarre uniquement quand les deux vis sont visser a fond sans rondelle c'est normal ?

gregkeke91 - Yanıt

it can be normal its really strange. it works sometimes, then sometimes it wont. I actually have purchased a new PS4 since then. But mine worked randomly for weeks, then it would stop working and i would have to go back and adjust my screws. Good luck!

Blake Hannan - Yanıt

Omg it worked!!!

hans99 - Yanıt

As I was disassembling and cleaning out my PS4 I noticed a small piece of metal fall out. I'm unsure as to where it goes so that I can put it back in place. Assuming it has something to do with why my power button doesn't work, and as to why my disc goes in and out, as well as my system randomly making beaking sounds when and when not touched. The piece is L shaped. It has 2 different shaped holes on it. Where does it belong?

p_laurenp - Yanıt

I used this guide today to perform the repair and my PS4 now works perfectly! I tried every other fix out there for the blue light of death… If you have a machine that is not working properly, give this a shot. The fix cost me less than $10 including buying the Torx T8 tool. I understand that this fix may not work forever or address the underlying cause, so I backed up my machine and keeping my fingers crossed until the PS5 comes out.

Jason Harrell - Yanıt

I have a newer model the cuh 1200 i think, but the same problem. One time beep and blue light hoes on but does not stay on. What could it be?

Amar Balaydin - Yanıt

Will this work if the ps4 stays powered on for 10 minutes before shutting itself off?

Devilswarchild - Yanıt

Can you make a video how it works withe the ps4 pro

Lukas Özdemir - Yanıt

I wanted to try to open the cover of the ps4 pro but I didn't manage it, then I plugged it back into all the cables and it beeps blue light but only comes for 2 seconds and goes out again without making a noise

Lukas Özdemir - Yanıt

I wanted to clean the fan because it is too loud

Lukas Özdemir - Yanıt

and i regretted it

Lukas Özdemir - Yanıt

I tried it but still, I was playing a game then it turned of I cleaned the inside 3 times but still ..I don't kno what to do but my ps4 is like 5 years now

Kamasah Dickson - Yanıt

Please help am very depressed since I can't afford a new ps4 now, I hate to set my eyes on it cause it gives me headaches……please help it just beep, blue light comes for like 3sec then

Kamasah Dickson - Yanıt

This is a very temporary solution to a very simple problem. I’ve seen so many PS4s in our repair shop that have done this, and it has caused significantly worse problems long term. Putting that much strain on the CPU can cause BGA solder balls to crack, or potentially damage the APU. Usually, you just need to clean the heatsink and use a good thermal compound to fix overheating issues like this. Please do not destroy your PlayStation doing this…

FYXIT - Yanıt

Merci beaucoup pour ce tutoriel qui fonctionne très bien pour ma part sur une ps4 slim victime du BLOD suite à une petite chute. J'ai ajouté les deux rondelles de chaque côté du clamp + 1 plus petite au milieu de diamètre 4mm. La console est à nouveau fonctionnelle, on verra avec le temps et si surchauffe il y a, si les billes du processeurs restent bien en contact avec la carte mère. Merci, en tout cas !

Laurent Milko - Yanıt

Not a permanent fix for sure. This is still made under the assumption that solder is the issue, when its not.
