Fixing a LOUD, Broken PS5 - First PS5 Disc Drive Repair! This broken PS5 was sent in by a viewer who said everything worked fine except the disc drive. When I tested it the disc drive made a lot of noise when I tried to insert a disc and wouldn't take the disc in at all. Once I got the disc drive apart I found part of one of the gears that was broken and also damage to other components.

    • Thats strange you shouldnt need a external cooling unit to cool a console that should do the job itself. What are these different fixes you have tried? Did you take it apart and clean the heatsink incase it was trapped with dust? Have you tried replacing the thermal paste with MX-4? Let me know as I want to help you sas you shouldnt need to be using external cooling.
