    Thanks @SauRoN for recommendation
    Yup Mark is a good oke.

    Has done a lot of work for me over the years or helped me out with stuff I did myself.

    Hi guys

    Same thing happened with mines (didn't hear a boom though as i had the fan on full blast and it was quite windy outside.
    Ps4 seems completely dead. I bought it in June 2016 from Makro and warranty with Part Serve is over (in the box was a 1 year warranty with PS).

    Is there anyone in Gauteng that offers Ps4 repairs?

    Thanks

    This may be covered by your insurance under surge and/or accident.

    Often they throw in a R5000 courtesy for such events.

    Otherwise I’m sure someone will recommend a repairer.

    Alternatively Partserve does offer a swop out but it’s like R2000.

    Will check with insurance whats the story and take it from there.

    I came accross these 2 sites, anyone used them?

    http://consoleservicecentre.co.za/
    http://www.blindant.co.za/

    Will cost roughly 1200 to replace the PSU

    I think @telegamer sources his power supply somewhere locally.
