No Life From Optical Drive

I am working on a PS4 (1215 model) that came in with what seemed to be a bad optical drive. I pulled a known good optical drive from another PS4 (same model), hooked it up, and everything seemed ok, except it would not read the one disc I had on hand. I went back to it the next day, and the PS4 does not seem to recognize their is an optical drive...

The laser does not move or light up, and the PS4 will not accept discs. Nothing in the drive moves on power up. If I hook the same drive up in a test system I have (same model), the drive works fine. I have inspected the 3 connectors on the logic board under magnification and do not see any problems.

So far I have tried a known good power supply, new cables (all 3), applied the latest system update from safemode and rebuilt the database from safe mode.

I am thinking this is a power problem, but I have not been able to find any useful info on iFixit or Google about how power is supplied to the drive from the logic board. Anyone have any ideas?

Since this is a 1215 model it doesn't have a drive board...or more specifically the "drive board" is sort of built into the motherboard. It sounds like you've checked the drive and cables extensively so now I would say is the time to start checking things on the motherboard. When you look at the motherboard you can see part of it sectioned off where the disc drive ribbon cable connections are. That's the part you want to look at. I would be looking for any water damage or corrosion, checking diodes and resistors, etc.

I'm guessing there is a good chance this one won't be fixable but I would definitely take a really close look at that part of the motherboard first.

Hope this helps.

It is board level... I checked the ICs I could find values for, and power is getting to the connector, but the drive is not doing anything. I assume it is a controller chip that died. No obvious signs of damage, but the guy tried to repair it himself before I got it...


That's always fun when someone else tries to fix it first. Bummer that you can't fix it. Unfortunately if that chip dies then there's nothing you can do since if you replace it then you'll just get an error code. I hate stuff like that.
