    Blue LED of death .. please help

    I Shipped a PS4 internationally through ebay , it's it will cost me around 200 USD to ship it to US and back to get it fixed by SONY , So i', seeking all the help i can get please ..

    I just Opened the BOX , when trying to power it on it just gives blinking Blue light , no o/p to My screen , Here's what i tried so far :

    - Different HDMI cables which are working fine on other devices .
    - Before plugging HDMI cable , the screen gives me "no signal message" , when i insert it into PS4 "even if it's off" , the message on my screen disappear , when i turn of the PS4 , it stays blank .
    - No Apparant damage with HDMI port , cable goes all the way in .



    - Double checked that H.D.D. is well seated .
    - When PS4 is off , then Trying to get PS4 into safe mode by pressing for power button for long time , it just turns off after the second beep .
    - when connecting the DS4 to the PS4 , it's not blinking at all , just as if controller is dead , i connected the DS4 to my pc , then it was charging well giving orange LED .
    - My Screen is Samsung BX2331 "FULL HD" ,i tried also another Toshiba TV .
    - power cord and power slot seems fine , i also tried other power cord from old PS3 .
    - i guess i can't update my FW as i can't get into safe mode , i can intalize the H.D.D. on another PS4 to ensure it's working fine , but i won't be able to upgrade FW anyway .

    I need to ask naive question , in the link below :
    http://us.playstation.com/support/sy...tallationSteps
    New FW is completely installed on PS4 MB , not H.D.D , i mean it will not help if i put my H.D.D. into other working PS4 and try upgrade FW , right ?

    Correct - the update is a firmware update the applies to that system's firmware - it's not run from the hdd.

    It's toast buddy. I've never heard of anyone that had a PS4 recover from the blue light of death.

    Check your hdmi cable. While you may not see something wrong in the port...the port might be bending one of the pins on your cable out of place

    Come find me on Twitch.tv!
