The backstory to this project is my daughter had inserted my credit card into the optical drive. The only way to remove the card was to remove the optical drive.

I was following https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/PlayStation+4+CUH-1200+Entire+Console+Disassembly/52475 and when I got to step 9 I seemed to have run into the same problem a few others have had.

Rather than the cable popping out of the connector, the entire connector detached from the board. So my connector is now detached with three of the four pins showing a bit of the PCB.

I'm assuming the connector/board can be cleaned and reattached via solder, can anyone recommend a business/individual that is proficient at doing this?

that looks like it has ripped up a few pads as well so might need a bit more support and 2 pins re wired/traced to the pcb

Wouldn't it have been easier to replace the credit card?

Yep, but I couldn't play my Uncharted disc with the credit card blocking the laser :P

Pretty much describes the work I need done!

oh. didn't notice when i was looking at work you simply pulled off the connector itself...

 

 

 

Didn't you learn pulling out the wrong bit leads to drama?
