Hello

Does anyone have a Playstation 4 Service Manual to share?
I need the manual for the Fat console.

Thanks

I had a brief look but couldn't find anything.
Then I was wondering if that's even allowed to be shared here?

Carefull, all search results are either malware, scams or fake.

These schematics arent available and even if someone here had them stored in PDF file format by now,
sharing these could lead into serious trouble. :)

yeah I noticed they are all malware.

So these schematics are still protected?
I was looking in particolar for the Bluray Drive schematics.

These things (copyright etc.) shouldn't be balanced by the "right to repair"?

Well I'm not sure myself.
Right to repair is allowed, but I would think if official documentation was allowed to be shared without fear of anything then wouldn't it be available on sites like psdevwiki etc? I can't see it on any of the places I can sometimes find stuff like that.
Can't see it on archive.org either, but maybe I'm not using the right variables in search (sometimes stuff can be sorta "hidden" by using uncommon naming).

The schematics are intellectual property of Sony they don't have to ever make them public.
All PS service manuals we have come from leaks and not official releases.
Sony became very paranoid after the PS3 was hacked and starting from the PS-Vita every single page of internal PS documents is watermarked with a serial number so leaks for PS4 PS5 become less likely.
