    Hi guys

    Anyone good with consoles ?. My friend and myself have been attempting to fix his ps4 to no avail. His ps4 model CUH-1216B started giving an unrecognizable disk error.

    Quick look on youtube and online we have tried
    *Safe mode
    *safe mode update system software though internet
    *rebuild database
    *tore down, cleaned lazer,
    *and blew out all dust and everything (was caked)

    So after all that still nothing, so he decided to buy a replacement drive, form what ive read with the older models there is no pairing with the boards in these drives unlike newer ones.

    So bought a drive from an ebay store, fully tested with warranty and return avalible. Drive came today

    Fired it in the console .....SAME ERROR ! , DISK UNRECOGNISABLE. So contacted the place, who said it could be a faulty logic board as these drives all the firmware is not on the drive its on the console......

    So now hes £40 down, its gonna be cheaper to buy a used console than it is to buy a new logic board. Wondering if there is anything else we can possibly try that maybe we have missed.

    Drive we bought listed below :)
