PlayStation Releases PS4 Pro Teardown Video, Clean The Fan Without Voiding Your Warranty

PlayStation Releases PS4 Pro Teardown Video, Clean The Fan Without Voiding Your Warranty News PlayStation Videos  PS4 Pro playstation

Sure the PS4 Pro may have just released, but what happens when in a few weeks/months when it starts to collect dust from basic usage? Maybe you just might be curious what the beast looks like inside. Well PlayStation has you covered with an official teardown video.

The video, which was first shown on the PS Blog, features Keiichi Aoki, Director of Mechanical Design taking apart the PS4 Pro. The over twelve (12) minute video has Aoki take apart the console piece by piece, while explaining the parts as he progresses. It’s actually quite educational and pretty cool to watch even if you don’t plan on taking your console apart anytime soon. Check out the video below.

When the video ends and Aoki lays out all of the components on the table showing the guts of the system, it doesn’t really seem like there is a lot in the thing. The nice thing is that you can clean the fan without voiding the warranty by simply flipping the console and propping the protective shell off. No void warranty stickers, and no screws.  Either way, check out the video for yourself and let us know what you think.

    That’s a great idea for the fans to be cleaned. .

      Sony seriously has great engineers to design their hardware. I mean they’ve been able to have HDD accessible and internal power supply since 2007 and now this…this is fantastic.

      • S. Cruz

        Yeah they do have great engineers. I think MS With the one S have started to see the light. Phil Spencer’s has done a great job since taking over. I think they are getting help from the surface team on design.

          It is nice to see that xbox finally gets some decent hardware with the Xbox One S. I’ll certainly agree it’s a good leap from the original console. Though it is funny that the internal power supply came at the cost of a Kinect adapter…and remember “Xbox is built around kinect, it’s part of it” lol.

          • S. Cruz

            I still think the Kinect a great piece of hardware. But that was don matrick, spencer Said he was a fan of the tech, just never a fan of it for gaming. But I use mine for voice commands and it’s a ir blaster so turning things on with it is great. Ad it didn’t come at a cost everyone with a Kinect had the chance to get the adapter free.

          Uh oh ? looks like i may have picked up a defective ps4 pro, the freaking audio keeps cutting in and out at ramdom….

          • S. Cruz

          • efnet

            Im poor man, and i did already …
            Anyway though i can’t seem to figure out whats causing it though, i think ill try running optical because it seems like an Hdmi handshake issue.

          • S. Cruz

            Cool story man

          • efnet

            Aint it though?
            I see you’re feeling some sort of way so ill just leave you be….
            Cant even share helpful info without dudes feeling some sort of way .

  • TWF

    I think you have to remove the under screws to actually get the top cover off.

  • efnet

    They should replace the fan, its kinda loud and i wasn’t doing anything but loading my backed up data on to it .

  • Steven Hiller

    Nice. Something as simple as a dirty fan can degrade system performance and cause your box to run loud.

    • ?

      it’s an issue with any hardware that uses fans for cooling.

      they went out of their way to design the pro in a way that lets you open it up easily and not void the warranty.

      i guess ppl will always find something to bitch about

      • Steven Hiller

        ? I havent seen anyone bitching about it.

  • HardWorkingFamilyMan

    • Guest

      • HardWorkingFamilyMan

        I’d be salty too if I were you.

        • Guest

          lol I’m not “salty” that you guys are trolling.
          I’m used to stupid MS fanboys and your toxic community by now. lol

          • HardWorkingFamilyMan

            If you’re used to it then why do you keep opening your stupid fucking mouth? Just curious.

  • Muteki 無敵

    This is one of the best console designs I’ve seen yet… when do I get to touch it….
