Follow this guide to replace the optical drive on your Sony Playstation 4.

Unplug your PS4 before beginning any repairs.

This was a great help after my 2 yr old put a coin in my PS4. However when following the steps backwards I got to step 7 which says 'Remove the 5 wire plug attached from the power supply to the motherboard' & couldn't see how to reattach it. I then noticed it looks like I've pulled the whole plastic white casing/plug holder (within the orange rectangle) off the mobo rather than just the plug from the casing. Although the pic looks like the plastic casing does come off the mobo as it's at an angle (maybe why I pulled the whole thing out or maybe I did it right).

I'm thinking I've made a mistake is because now I cant see anywhere that I can 'plug' the 5 L shaped wires on the bottom of the plastic casing back onto the mobo. Plus where they used to be attached there's now 5 tiny silver rectangles on the mobo (2 opposite 3), so I guess these 5 wires were some how adhered to those mobo rectangles by a conductive adhesive of some sort.

Any suggestion for the best repair method would be appreciated.

Thanks

If you've pulled the female end from the motherboard the it need to be resoldered to the board, most likely gonna need to pull the motherboard. It's a very simple connector, sounds as if you yanked the whole thing off.

Is anyone there who try to change the optical drive without change the Motherboard in the same time ? And does it run ?

Thanks for your help.

How about a guide for replacing just the laser unit instead of the whole drive?

I changed the drive with its motherboard, when I want to update the system, an error message appears:

CE-42116-8 .
