    Hi everyone,

    So my original PS4 has finally got the BSOD. But funny thing is I can not get to safe mode. Holding the power button for 7 seconds does not work. If I hold it a little longer it will just shut off. Now I have been doing quit a few quick fixes to the washers and new thermal paste. No luck. I have looked at the motherboard front and back trying to look for HDMI solder being loose or or broken pins. Also checking the API chip look at me I may be looking at the wrong chip. But it's the chip that takes the thermal paste lol. I will post some pictures of the board let me know if anyone see what I can't.

    I KNOW THIS IS OLD NEWS. But before anyone take there ps4 apart is check HDD not corrupted or whatever cause the BSOD.
    Also read this quote. Its like PC you install something that you should thing BSOD and then you have too restore backup or clean install windows again.

    Thanks for replying. But I am unable to do anything. The blue light just pulses and I have to force shut down. Can't get into safe mode at all. I even tried another hd drive from my neighbors PS4 and same result. That's why I posted the pics of the motherboard maybe someone else can see some issues.

    BLOD its usually associated with two things, either the APU its gone, and replacing it its impossible, or the IC Chip near the HDMI needs replacement.

    I don't have a 1st hand experience, as i mainly avoided the Launch CUH-1000 exactly for that matter.
