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.
