Play Station 4 Pro With Overheating (Shutting Down) Issue Repaired
I was sitting at home; my son came to me and asked me if the loud sound of fan on his PS4 pro is normal? When I went to his room, I could hear a loud noise coming out of the fan and it sounded like a jet plane was taking off; it was loud.
I took it to my shop the next day for check up.
In this case it is either a blocked fan vent, dry thermal paste or both.
There a lot of screws on that metal board that have to come off and also disconnecting flex cables as well.
As seen in the photo, there is a lot of dust on that board and tells this device is dirty and needs cleaning.
The thermal paste on that IC is dry and needed fresh one but before that, I need to do some cleaning and dusting.
This is the worse part, look at this dirt blocking the cooling vent; no wonder I was getting that loud fan noise and sometime shutting down warnings.
First thing, I cleaned all that dirt and dust, added fresh thermal paste to the main IC and hoped for the best.
I cleaned the main IC, the heat sink, and added fresh thermal paste. That is the thermal paste that I used for this job. I put everything back together and tested the PS4. I gave it to the master to test it out, my son (sorry I could not take a photo of that).
My son was happy that it is no longer has loud fan noise or shutting down issues but instead a long hours of use for games and stuff.
