1. Determine which sub-model of PS4 Pro you are working on

Look at the back of the PS4 just above where the power cord plugs in. This repair guide is specific to the most recent PS4, the PS4 Pro which has 3 sub-models: CUH-7015B, CUH-7115B, and CUH-7215B. The repair is the same for each one, but the part is slightly different (and while the parts between sub-models can be interchangeable, it is best to use the parts that correspond with your specific model for the longevity of your console). 

We sell the power supply for all of the sub-models:

CUH-7115B/ADP-300ER Power Supply

CUH-7015B/ADP-300CR Power Supply

CUH-7215B/ADP-300FR Power Supply
