gamewerkz . just change chip...else would be even more expensive changing the motherboard.
Is that why they can't guarantee will work after replacing chip? Coz know most of the time when motherboard is changed, it will work.

if after replacing the chip doesn't work, there won't be any charges.

changing chip is cheaper than replacing the whole motherboard. That's what happen to my MacBook Pro, one of the chip fried and just replacing it instead of the whole motherboard. and its working fine till now.

Cannot swap HDD. HDD taken from one PS4 cannot be read in another PS4, if inserted into another PS4, will be prompted to format. (Actually I haven't tried on PS4, that's how it works on PS3, so presumably the same.)

You have PS+ rt? Should have automatic upload to Cloud unless you disabled it or didn't leave your PS4 in rest mode.

I believe the auto-upload is defaulted to On. Do you leave your PS4 in rest mode all the time?

[Settings] > [Power Save Settings] > [Set Features Available in Rest Mode]
- check [Stay Connected to the Internet]
- check [Enable Automatic Uploads]

I think I've encountered situations when it also auto-uploads when the PS4 is still on (not too sure though, it might be when I was switching accounts, and it uploads saves on the account that's logged out, even though the PS4 itself is not in rest mode).

I assume you have quite a lot of digital games (PS+ or purchased). Since 1 psn account can only reside on 2 sets of PS4 consoles (and 2x PS3 and 2x Vita), the dead PS4 is taking up 1 slot unnecessarily. You need to reclaim it.

You can go here:
https://account.sonyentertainmentnet...ce-list.action

Select "Playstation systems". There is a "deactivate all" button at the bottom. Not sure whether that will deactivate your PS3 and Vita as well (if you have those). Might need to reactivate those manually. (I think you can only do "deactivate all" once in 6 months or something.) Will have to do this for every account you had on that dead PS4. Or you can probably contact Sony's support to deactivate for you but that could be tedious if you have many accounts in many regions.

PS. I have not tried this before, not sure if "deactivate" actually means what I think it means (ie. reclaim 1 slot).

PS. Of cos if you repair it (and the repair works), you won't have to do this.
