What causes the PS4 blue light no picture problem?
98% of the time it’s to do with the processor on the main board.
What happens is the main processor gets hot while playing and then cools down when you switch it off.
Under the processors there are small little solder balls that connect the processor to the main board, and is soldered to the main board.
With the processor heating up and cooling down, the solder balls either crack or start touching each other and need to be replaced.
Here are some examples below:
When the solder cracks or joins together it creates a short and the PS4 gives you the Blue Light of Death.
What we do to repair the PS4 BLOD is remove the processor, then re-ball the processor and then again and then solder it back to the main board.
This is done with specialized equipment and cannot be done with just a soldering iron, the heat needs to be controlled during the process.
If the heat is not just perfect when heating up the processor to get the solder balls to fuse again, the processor will get damaged.
