Sony now has 3 different models of it's PS4 game console. This is the latest version and it has been changed a lot. We tore it apart to see what's different.

    • Remove the two T9 security torx screws.

    • This is the first major revision we find...there are only two screws that hold the plastics on. The previous models had four.

  5. FIRST remove the two screws securing the top cover to the PS4. Removing the top cover will be easier if you follow these steps in order: 1) Grab underneath of the top cover near the power button. 2) Pull up...you will hear it click or snap as you pull up.

    • 1) Grab underneath of the top cover near the power button.

    • 2) Pull up...you will hear it click or snap as you pull up.

    • 3) Move your hand over to the opposite side of the top cover and pull up here as well.

    • 4) After puling up both sides of the top cover it should now slide back and off of the PS4.

    • We now have our first view of the inside of the CUH 1200. The first thing we notice is that the motherboard is much, much smaller and the APU clamp has been completely redesigned. The inside of this model is completely different than previous models.

  6. To remove the bottom cover you'll need to pull up very hard on each side of the cover near the back of the console. You may be able to pull just with your hands but you might also need to use some opening tools to pry it off. We get our first view of the components on the underside of the console. Looks like we have a redesigned power supply and optical drive.

  7. After we remove the bottom plastic we see the physical eject button that Sony has decided to use. This is another significant change over the previous models. We're guessing this change is to help prevent the "random ejecting" of discs that plagued the previous models.

  9. Remove the three T9 torx screws then the two phillips PH 0 long screws. Pull up on the left side (the side without the four wires), then on the right side. The right side of the power supply will be harder to pull up on so you'll need to pull firmly. After you get it loose you'll be able to pull it up a bit but it will still be connected by the four wire connector so don't pull it all the way out until that has been disconnected (shown in the next step).

  10. You'll need to disconnect this four wire connector from the motherboard. The best way we've found is to use mini pliers. Pull up on one side then the other. Go back and forth one side at a time until it pops off. The power supply can now be removed.

    • Use caution as this connector is easily pulled off the motherboard.

    • Be sure that you are pulling on the connector for the wires that go to the power supply itself and NOT on the connector on the motherboard.

  11. Using the same pliers grasp the WiFi antenna cable and pull up carefully The really wide optical drive cable has a black "collar" that needs to be lifted up on each side. This will free the cable. The other two cables can just be pulled right out of their respective sockets.

    • Remove five T9 security torx screws

    • Remove two PH 0 phillips screws along with the green PCB board.

  14. Even though the optical drive has been redesigned they still use the same roller system with the white bar in between. We're guessing that there will still be problems with these white bars falling out. The laser and carrier look very similar to the previous models.

    • Pull the top metal shield off of the console.

  16. The first thing we notice (other than the size) about the motherboard is that Sony has totally re-designed the heat sink clamp. We're guessing (and hoping) this will reduce or eliminate the problem of PS4's turning on then back off.

  19. We can now see one of the huge differences between the older models and this new model...there's no RAM on one side of the motherboard! There is still the same amount of RAM but the total number of RAM chips has been cut in half.

    • In other news, the HDMI port has finally been redesigned! This is great news as the old style is very prone to failure.

  21. As we started assembling this PS4 we noticed this small piece laying in on the bottom metal sheet. As we reassembled the console we found that it went on the top of the motherboard where one of the long power supply screws goes it. There is a black plastic piece that will cover it.

  22. With this drastically different model of PS4 we are hoping that Sony has addressed some of the problems with the older models (HDMI port, etc). We are cautiously optimistic that they have.

You didn't show what the supply connector is supposed to look like, when disconnected. Now I ripped it off of my mother board, attempting to assess milk damage. Thanks for helping me make sure my PS4 will stay broken.

I'm so sorry it ripped off. I'm assuming you are talking about the power supply connector? If so step #10 shows the method we use to remove this connector. We use mini pliers and grasp one end at a time and pull up gently but firmly each time...this will eventually get the connector off without damage in most cases. That being said we have had to fix a connector every once in a while on these because some of them are fragile.

i dropped my ps4 and it made grinding noises when it reading discs and also it wouldnt eject disc, i fixed the eject problem by disassembling the blu ray drive but it still grinds when reading and only reads when i rebuild database. are you guys gonna start selling replacements anytime soon or will the blu ray from the cuh-11xx models work?

jer - Antwort

ifixit doesn't currently carry them. I'm assuming that they will at some point. We at Tronicsfix have just gotten a few in (we just don't have them up on our website yet) and could sell you one. You can contact me here: steve@tronicsfix.com
