PS4 Overheating Repair Tips - How to Fix Loud PS4

PS4 overheating repair tips from a professional. We take a look at the inside of a PS4 to see what all needs to be cleaned to help a PS4 run cooler.

►My Favorite Tools:

We explain how the 10xx and 11xx models of PS4 run hotter and the fan runs louder than people think it should. Some of the things that commonly cause a PS4 to overheat are:
-The cooling fan
-Dried out thermal paste
-A PS4 that has been assembled incorrectly
-A very dirty PS4

A PS4 that is actually overheating will: Beep loudly, turn on the red light (where the white light normally is) and then shut down. Many people think their console is overheating just because it feels hot and it's loud...but that's not overheating.

We start with a PS4 that has been partially disassembled then we remove the metal plate with the heat sink attached to it. We then show how to clean the heat sink fins properly...something that most people miss. We then explain and show how to remove and clean the cooling fan.

The video wraps up by showing how to put the parts back in that were removed.

My damn ps4 overhearts like 10mins into a game.
I kept mine on window ledge with window open, until neighbours complained, and local airport took me to court as the pilots couldn't concentrate when testing the jet engines. so I took it apart and now run my 12 room central heating radiotors off it. It's that loud, I'm colour-blind from it
Your T-shirt LOL.

my ps4 stopped transmitting video while I was playing with a loud humming sound. had the constant blue light of death for a few days until I opened and tightened the apu down. everything cut back on for about 10-15 min before no video and humming again.

checked the thermal paste, old and crusty; opened and cleaned all that was in this video and reapplied new paste.
