PS4 Power Issue with Instant Blue Light (Second PSU)

Hi all,

I have a problem, I received a PS4 from a mate, its broken when plugged in a beep happens, a blue light appears for a split half a second and then the PS4 is off. I press the on button again and nothing happens until I unplug it and plug it back in.

Research online tells me its likely an issue with the power supply (PSU) so I bought a new one online. Replaced it and everything was great, working perfectly for over an hour, I updated it, played some games, installed some themes, everything was right with the world.

I then looked away for a minute to grab a drink, came back and it was off. I tried switching it back on again and I’m back to the same issue as before, blue light only on for half a second then off, need to unplug it and plug it back in to try again.

Anyone got any advice what it could be, what I could check? What are the chances the new PSU is faulty? I’m unsure if I went to spend another $30 on a PSU if it will break down again.

Thanks so much!!


Not sure if useful but apparent original problem was it got fried by lightning.

Have you tried adding a washer under each side of the APU clamp? Since you’ve already replaced the power supply I’m guessing that some of the solder joints between the APU and motherboard are faulty. A washer under each side of the clamp may fix that issue.

I added a few washers but seems to be the same unfortunately. Went through with a multimeter on the motherboard and it looks like I'm getting quite a few shorts around the place, in particular I'm getting quite a few on a chip called "TI 53123A" https://www.psdevwiki.com/ps4/TI_53123A

Maybe it steps down the voltage and its whats zapping it and killing it? Not sure how easy to replace.

Thanks heaps though! Also are you the TronicsFix as in from youtube? Because I love your videos <3, really interesting to watch and I feel like I learn a lot! So good!


Yep, that's me. I try to come on iFixit and help out in the forums whenever I can. Glad you're enjoying the videos!
