  • Place the Playstation 4 Slim upside down with the side of the screw you just removed facing you.

  • Pry up on the two corners that are facing you with your fingers.

  • This may take a bit of force to open up and you will hear a fairly loud click when the bottom cover detaches.

  • Remove the bottom cover by sliding it towards the back corners and lifting up.

It says to place it upside down, but didn't you do so in the previous step? I've been trying to unscrew the screw with my screwdriver that I got from here and if I had to had the system right side up, I'm afraid I might've stripped the screw from all the force I tried to use to get the screw out that will NOT budge. It didn't even move the slightest after removing the warranty sticker.

- There are 14x 4.0mm black screws, but the step only shows 13 of them circled in red. One of the 11 orange circles (near front of unit) is actually the 14th black screw. Photo: http://i.imgur.com/7G64egd.png

- As for the 6.0mm silver screws, there are only 8x of those. The two silver screws behind the IO ports on the back are 3.0mm fine-threaded screws. Photo: http://i.imgur.com/cQD6KQu.png

These are 3.0mm screws, not 5.0mm. This step could probably be condensed into the previous step.

Hi Harry

I think this guide is fantastic. My PS4 slim is not coming on. It’s not the HDMI display port or anything of the sort. It powers on, you hear the beep and the blue power light stays on. That’s all. Nothing after this… no signal to the TV, cannot reinitialise, nothing. I’ve checked online to see if I can diagnose it. Based on the few signs I’ve seen I think the board is gone. So am looking to replace that hence I came across your guide. Is there a way you know to be certain my board is faulty. Thanks

I have a PS4 slim issue…. when connected to power it doesn't show it’s on and no light displays….. I would say the board is faulty and how do I work on such problem.
