Aberdeen Playstation 4 Repair of HDMI Plague

Multiple users reported that Sony Playstation 4 consoles found had bent pins within HDMI port and this prevented the cable from being fully plugged in and making required contact, when booting the system as if without HDMI connected, the console does not get beyond the pulsating blue light because it is unable to initialise a video on display, same as, if the display you are connecting the playstation to does not support video signal being sent, initialisation of the video link will fail, even if the connection is good. Aberdeen PS3 repair and Aberdeen PS4 repair.
For some users the pin they experience being bent was actually one of the “click” pins in the outer shielding itself that are normally used to secure a cable in place, in their instance the bent pin had not made contact with one of the signal pins but simply prevented the cable itself from being inserted far enough to make a solid connection.
One of the units we received for repair initially was awkward to insert cables in to, the HDMI cable needed to be “wiggled” gently for it to then slot in firmly, after closer inspection one of the upper pins on the HDMI socket central block was lifted slightly, this would mean that the slight wiggling would give the pin enough space to slip in to the connector and work properly. Aberdeen PS3 repair and Aberdeen PS4 repair.
Once adjusting the pin using a small screwdriver (pushing it down flush with the other pins) we have not had any trouble inserting cables and no longer need to “wiggle” to get it connected up – we can only assume at this point that this occurred with some users units except rather than being a signal pin like in our instance, they had the same issue but with the shielding pins, someone then obviously applied too much pressure thinking the port was just tight, bending the pin further in.

The signal pins are thin copper coated prong type connectors and are extremely easy to bend, if the pin makes contact with the flat edge of a cable, it would not take unreasonable force to push it backwards, bending the pin out of the way, while the outer shielding pins are thicker and would take a little more force to fully bend, because of their arrangement and direction, however it would take a considerably large amount of force to fold this pin back on itself and reach a state where it would be unreasonable to call an easy fix.

To be on a safe side at Jahi laptops during these kinds of Playstation 4 repair procedures we just exchange the HDMI port for a new unit, which has improved and more robust design preventing any further or re-occurring damage to the port at any later stages.

PS4 Pulsating Blue Light Problems

Pulsating blue light, with no power off:  HDMI port failing to sense a connected display – could be faulty HDMI port, or TV does not support resolution, which Playstation outputs, or problem completing the video initialisation handshake between devices.
Pulsating blue light, console powers off: HDMI port failure to sense a connected display at all – Most likely damaged HDMI port or faulty cable.

Pulsating blue light, switching to white and switching back to blue, repeating: TMDS signal line grounded, initial handshake was successful but signal is unstable, check HDMI port pins on both the TV and PlayStation 4, if no pins are bent or damaged or another cable and display.

Normal operation but corrupt display, artefacts, lines on screen : Handshake succeeded, video signal stable enough to proceed with boot, but displaying artefact's on screen, this is either down to a faulty, or damaged TMDS line in HDMI socket or lead, or the display having trouble handling the clock signal being sent from the PlayStation 4 over HDMI, check ports, cable, and where possible, another display.  Aberdeen ps3 repair and Aberdeen ps4 repair.
