PS4 HDMI Port Repair Fix

The only good and permanent fix for a bad HDMI port is to replace the entire port. Some of them just have pins that have been pushed back so they no longer make contact with the pins on the cable. Even though many times you can push these pins back, there is no good way to keep them there. The whole port needs to be replaced in order to fix this permanently.

Can I Fix It Myself?

The ports on these consoles can be extremely difficult to repair unless you have expert level soldering and electronics repair skills. They are soldered onto the motherboard with 4 main pins with lots of solders and they also have 19 very small pins that have to be soldered onto solder pads on the motherboard.

Since the only good and permanent fix for a bad HDMI port is to replace the entire port you’ll need to feel confident in your ability to solder the HDMI port correctly. If you don’t feel confident in your electronics repair skills it would be better to have someone with more experience perform the repair.
