PS4 HDMI Port Repair – White Light of Death Fix – No Signal

PS4 HDMI Port Repair – White Light of Death Fix – No Signal

Please do not attempt this repair if you do not have the skill or equipment to do so. We show you how to correctly replace the HDMI port on a PS4. This job can be done in about 20 minutes if you have the experience and tools necessary.

PS4 HDMI Port Repair Tips:
-Be sure that you are using a good HDMI port. Many that you buy on eBay and Amazon don’t line up correctly
-If the port is not hot enough it will not fall out and the circuit traces may tear off of the motherboard…still fixable but MUCH harder to repair.
-Don’t use a heat gun…just don’t.
-Soler each of the 19 pins on to the motherboard. Make sure there is no bridged solder pads and that each pin is soldered to it’s corresponding pad.

    I’ve been watching your videos for three years and when my special edition gold PS4 stopped working, your disassembly video made me confident I could repair it. Now it works better than it has in a long time! Thanks TronicsFix!

    I just found two broken PS4 on the side of the road. They were even complete with the original HDD and the cover. One has a faulty HDMI connector which stops working if you shake the cable and the other one makes the eject sound but the power button does nothing. Surprisingly the PS4 with the faulty HDMI never got updated and is still on Firmware 1.76. I might repair and clean it as it might be worth something for collectors. I don't know about the secound one but it looks really bad and is full of sticky yellow smoke stuff. Both will require a lot of work.

    I only tested the one that works for about two minutes as I didn't want it to overheat or destroy the HDMI chip.

    Just experienced this issue. Pisses me off they simply solder a hdmi port to the mobo.. One minute of extra thought by Sony and they would have thought to make it ribbed or something. ANYTHING to take into account these will inevitably need to replaced.

    I know it is unlikely, but would you happen to have some old equipment laying around you are trying to get rid of for cheap or free to someone that wants to help out those in the area with likewise issues? I just started a tech support side business and I already have someone asking about the HDMI port of a ps4. While I already have some experience with soldering and all that I recently had everything I owned stolen from me by my ex-roommates, so I figured it doesn't hurt to ask.
