Use this guide to replace the power supply of Sony's first generation PS4. Be aware that any replacement or teardown beyond the hard drive voids the Sony warranty.

  1. Flip the PS4 over on its top.
    • Flip the PS4 over on its top.

  2. Remove the four stickers on the back of the PS4. Despite the scary-sounding warning on the sticker, Sony cannot legally void your warranty for removing it—only if you damage your device.
  3. Remove the three 9mm TR8 Torx Security screws on the back of the system.
    • Remove the three 9mm TR8 Torx Security screws on the back of the system.

  4. Remove the bottom panel by lifting the front piece up and sliding the panel towards the back.
    • Remove the bottom panel by lifting the front piece up and sliding the panel towards the back.

    To clarify, these instructions are from the perspective of the camera, not the front/back of the PS4.

    Written another way, without ambiguity and assuming you have the PS4 positioned the same as in the picture: To remove the bottom panel, lift up the side closest to you, then slide the panel away from you.

  5. Remove the three 9mm TR9 Torx screws.
    • Remove the three 9mm TR9 Torx screws.

    • Remove the two 4cm Phillips head #1 screws.

    Step 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11 are useless. After step 4 you just need step 8, 12, 13, 14 to take out the drive.

  6. Lift straight up on the power supply.
    • Lift straight up on the power supply.

    Mine doesnt go straight upp, its like i have tog struggle till do it, what do i do… i have opend it but with THE struggle.

    Albert Einstein - Replica

    There are two connections on the under side of the power supply on the left side. The right side should lift up easily and then with a better grip the left side will lift. This takes some force but as long as you don't pull too far and damage the cable, this extra force shouldn't damage anything.

    • Remove the 5 wire plug that is attached from the power supply to the motherboard.

    • You can now fully remove the power supply from the system.

    You can't, i'm in the same boat. The only option is to buy a used ps4 that perhaps won't read discs or has some issue other than power, and use it's PSU as a replacement. But good luck with that as the Sony warranty period is still active.

    Lycaon OfArcadia - Replica

    whats the number on the ic unit of the power supply? it ends with 015

    Sanjay Lewis - Replica

    You can buy it in aliexpress

    My PS4 has a 4 wire plug that is attached from the power supply to the motherboard not a 5 wire plug..... What do I do? Half way through the replacement and I can't go forward with it.

    Try visiting one of these repair shops for spare parts

    Damian - Replica

    Arman Delalic - Replica

    I just had this problem and i broke the connector.

    The problem is dont pull on the base or you'll pull it off the motherboard, pull the wires and a small plug will come off

    Hopefully this got to you in time :)

    Ich Broke the connector from the motherboard. How Can i fix it

    Breia Turms - Replica

    Not necessary to remove ANY of the ribbons or wires from the MAIN circuit board. Just remove the ends on the optical drive. Also WiFi cable doesn’t need to be removed, just unscrew the end and then moved…

    My power supply cable was too tightly held by the aged rigid plastic board connector and I (way too easily) snapped the base connector off. Ive just hosed my ps4 because of this unessessary few steps. Sigh.

    any micro soldering suggestions for a newbie?

Gonna do this tomorrow, I'm just hoping this is what's wrong with it.

A few months ago something popped in the system and I smelt a burning scent.

Diamond - Replica

Bro,did it work for you?

I have same problem

EL cablemo -

Just be careful when pulling up power supply on the left side facing you when Ps4 is upside-down.

jerrylaird3000 - Replica

Just received my tools and power supply for my ps4 and I replaced it just like the guidelines said but nothing happens but the same issues. Heard a beep, blue light came on, heard a click then back off again. Please tell me I didn't just wasted $70?

rahmanglaspy - Replica

And have you resolve your problem ?

Frederic Morelli -

flipping your ps4 upside down and apply weight directly ontop of the powerbrick may be a quick fix to your power problem

Jess Price - Replica

Thats what i did and it fixed the problem. Ty mate for sharing your knowledge.

Petteri Moilanen -

I tried this trick and it worked for a few minutes but then it cut back off and won’t cut on again! tried the move again and it didn’t work twice. does this mean the power supply is weak or dead? should I buy another?

chike_moody -

After unplugging the power supply, do i put the new power supply right back in or wait

ahmed31425 - Replica

Thank you very much, guide was amazing I was able to be up and running with my PS4 in about 10-15 minutes!

Does anybody know where I can buy a replacement power supply for the Cuh-1215A model?

Danny Yosh - Replica

hey im from new zealand and i was hoping if you could tell me what my problem on my ps4...... the day before my ps4 was working fine but then the next day i just couldn't on it anymore ...... then realize that i saw a cockroach in it and i took it out ....... i think it mess the power supply up but i was just wondering if it is the power supply or not .... before i buy a new power supply

shawnpuafolau - Replica

For starters, just open it up and check all the cables. Normally cockroaches don't eat electronics but if you see any damage you might not need to look further.

Roald Delvaux -

Thank you for these tutorials! Tell me please, do these advices appropriate for all types of power supplies? The fact is that i have this model and all efforts to replace it ware failed! Tell me please, what it can be the trouble! I will be very thankful for yr recommendations!

Why not pull the plug from the power supply instead of the motherboard? I ask because my power supply didn't come with a cable. should it have?

Andre Brown - Replica

Mines had a 4 wire plug and I accidentally cut two of them- what should I do to fix it or does it have to be replaced??

Carmen Tulia Troxler - Replica

where i'm going to buy the power supply??

ciuordiss - Replica

Really didn't expect it to work. I had a power surge that took out my apple time capsule as well as the PS4. Saw so many posts that suggested it might be something else other than the PSU. I had a blue light for half a second then nothing. Sometimes it wouldn't even give me that. However after replacing the PSU and following the instructions on the iFixit youtube video. I had the whole thing switched and working in about 5 minutes. Thanks so much!

Luke Currie - Replica

So I tried to turn on my ps4 and heard the usually beep but almost at the same time I heard an electric popping sound. Would that be the power supply that needs fixing..?

Walter Jones - Replica

Please i cant remove my powersupply from the ps4 it looks like it is attached to something on the mother board but i disconected the wires

keenan parker - Replica

Why does my PS4 only have 2 screws....

Elijah - Replica

I'm getting a PS4 from someone but I might just send it into Sony so they can see what is wrong with it I don't know what else to do with it right now

Cody green - Replica

Had a power issue and opened up the ps4 as shown. Everything looked ok, found a dead bug on the inside. Could be the reason for the Fan to go haywire. I put it back together and ran it and it ran fine for about 10min. The fan went haywire again, then the ps4 switched off. It powers on but USB ports don't work as well as the HDMI port. At a loss at the moment... going to have a burial for the PS4 tomorrow.

RyuDSwift - Replica

The T9 screwdriver doesn't unscrew one of the screws inside the console. The one on the top left corner to be exact

Gilbert “Gil-B” Onuzuruike - Replica

use tweezers to unsecrew

John Connor -

thanks for the guide, very useful.

John Connor - Replica

I removed my power supply after I heard a pop sound and my PS4 shut off. It was only turning on the blue light for a second and beeped then back off so I figured it was the problem. However, when I put new one back in, I didn't notice that the metal clips had bent. So it did the same as before. Thought it didn't work. But then we aligned those metals and put the new power source back and it worked. Just throwing out there. Just in case someone does the same as I did.

Tony Harris - Replica

This isn't directly related to the power supply replacement. I am travelling in a campervan/motorhome and have a 12V supply. I have a 12V TV and everything else but my PS4 is going to need an inverter to step up to 240V AC then the PS4 power supply step it down to XV DC. Does anyone know the internal DV voltage of the output of the PS4 power supply and whether I could remove that entirely and power directly from the existing 12V in my van? Thanks in advance.

Oliver Ashford - Replica

Are capacitors in the power supply? this is what has gone on my ps4. turns on for 3 seconds then turns off. Any ideas if cold be fixed by power supply?

Samuel - Replica

There are to possibilities. 1. You can fix it with replacing the power supply 2. There is a damage on your logic board but this is very uncommon.

Thomas Pathe -

thank you very much.

freddybowles - Replica

On step 5 what are those metal bending things attached to the Philips screws called? and can I buy replacements because one of mine snapped off, and its making me nervous to play my ps4 like that, are the bending things meant to due anything important.?

Frank - Replica

Got the blinking blue light, got it diagnosed, said it needed a new power supply. Bought new power supply from the link above, replaced the power supply, still nothing but a blinking blue light. Any ideas as to what to check next? It won't even come in in safe mode. Doesn't register that the controller is plugged in. It was dropped initially. That is what starts the problem. Any tips help. Very discouraged.

Joel Hurlbert - Replica

This might help you to determine if the problem comes from the psu or from the mainboard.

Stefan Wyssen -

Do you know if it's possible to replace a 220V Power Supply to a 110V (or bi-volt) one?

My power supply does not come out at the left side where the pin is connected and I'm afraid I'll break it if I pull it out too hard

Hamza Ali - Replica
