Mostly the PS4 will not give you any power at all if you press the power or eject button.
Or the PS4 can come on for a second or two and then just go off straight away again.
If the power supplies blow, can something else also blow?
This will all depend on how the PS4’s power supply blew?
If the power supply has blown because of lightning in your area, then there could be a problem where components on the main board have also blow.
If the power supply has become faulty after a power surge or from load shedding in your area, then it’s usually just the power supply itself that is faulty.
If your power supply has blown because it so full of dust, as you haven’t been doing the yearly service on your PS4 console, then it’s also usually just the power supply that’s blown.
Make sure you strip the PS4 down completely and do a full service, before you replace the power supply, if you don’t, all the dust will be blown into the power supply and it could blow again.
