    Default Partserve

    Hey all

    I have a strange noise emanating from my PRO and am going to send it to Partserve for a replacement. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to prepare the console? Do I need to format it or just sign out of PSN?

    Thanks

    What do you mean prepare? Just backup your PS4 on an external hdd so that you don't have to redownload when you get the replacement.

    Strange noise like how?

    Mine has this click noise when the system starts up and reads the disk and then randomly at times I assume when the disc is being read.

    I'd just sign out and leave your data on there, and make sure you have 2-step authentication enabled.

    It only happens when a game is getting very intensive. Either a byproduct of a faulty fan or coil whine. I honestly don't know how to describe the sound but it's definitely not the actual fan.

    Thanks, I will probably just do this tonight as I have a lot of games I really don't want to have to download again.
