We recommend ShaneFix for all PS4 repairs. He's one of our repair contractors and has started his own business. Check it out: shanefix.com/
10 were PS4 originals and 2 were slims. They had a variety of problems including disk drive issues, a faulty hard drive, a broken HDMI port, the blue light of death (BLOD), and the white light of death (WLOD). Also, a number of them were really dirty. Stick around until the end to see how many I can fix and if I will be able to make a profit.

Do the Cotton swabs have any thing like rubbing alcohol on it? It makes the cleaning look so good.

This is what right to repair is all about. If manufacturers had it their way, they could manufacture products that would not be supported for refurbishing or repairing, forcing us to throw our stuff away and buy their new products. It's wasteful. Apple does this best and I don't understand why people continue to support them aside from the market hold standardization. Support these people who keep these products running. When in the market for a used PS4, you know you're getting a well refurbished one from people like Tronix. Keep up the great work!

He paid 91 dls for each PS4 and he says he sells them for 140, so the profit is 49 dls for each fixed console, he fixed 9 the profit is 441 dls. He can still sell the 3 he couldn't repair for 90 dls on ebay, which he has done with other consoles like the switch, he said the switches he couldn't fix he would sell them again on ebay to recuperate what he originally paid for. When he says he only made 166 dls he is not taking into account the 270 dls that he can get from the 3 broken consoles, unless he is just gonna throw them in the garbage, his numbers are wrong. The video is great tho' and I'll keep watching more of these for sure.

Hey! I love all your videos, became obsessed during the quarantine especially. I just got my PS4 Pro back from repair and they fixed the problem but now it wont recognize discs. It accepts the disk and you can hear it winding up, makes a click sound after a minute and winds down, then says the disc cant be read. Do you know what I can do to fix it?

Can't you re flow the apu/cpu with your hot air gun? I remember fixing Xbox 360s using a re flow station back in the day, but since the solder was crap it didn't stay fixed long.

If you are going to sell stuff online you need to find suppliers that can keep up. On Amazon about half the stuff is out of stock or no longer available.
