you think that what is need because when i turn it on the fan goes loud and then the ps4 turn off with 3 beeps
those loud 3 beeps I've encountered before. 3 different scenarios, 1st is i couldn't do anything to get rid of it. 2nd, had a hard disc that refused to take discs, if i tried forcing disc inside then it would do this. Removed disc and it booted. The 3rd scenario is tighting the x clamp over the APU. Without the clamp it did this, with clamp it worked. In theory it should work without clamp, but if it only works with the clamp then it means the solder balls are going bad.

Try pull it out, I kinda forced mine and the hard disc refused to take any discs after that. The proper way is to remove the hard disc, and look for a + on the bottom left. That is the correct way to remove it manually, going clock wise or counter, it should go through the motion of ejecting the disc.

Then try to deattach the top layer and pop remove disc. It would appear that top layer is jammed. The ram is not removable, the mother board cost like 200 to 300. If the disc removal doesn't fix it, then most likely it's some other problem on the mother board

you need a bga station to do a proper reflow. they cost a lot, so you'll have to send it to someone. maybe look on ebay or google it. though, it might be expensive with shipping. the only other alternative is to find a place locally.

The hairdryer is a bandaid, as the balls under neath could be croded. Basically, small balls of solder very close together, is what connects the Apu. If one of the Ram chips gets hot, there is likely a short. From the hot chip, some filter right near it maybe causing it to short. As for the no signal, it goes hdmi connector it's self, then the ic chip, filters on the HDMI line, and then Apu chip

so you meant to say that the apu needs reballing and the the hdmi ic mast be replaced

Back when I didn't have a PS4, I bought a cheap PS4 pro. I then learned what BLOD was. Also sent in to have it reballed. They determined the Apu was fried, so they installed a new one. The new one fried, and they were not able to determine why. Since they used their Apu only option I had was to let them keep the PS4 as for parts to get refund on failed repair.
