Remove the covers when installing an M.2 SSD, attaching a disc drive, or when replacing your covers.
Before removing or attaching the covers, please read the following safety precautions.
Keep out of reach of young children. Young children may swallow small parts which may inflict injury.
After you have turned off your PS5® console and unplugged the AC power cord and cables, wait for your console to cool down before removing and attaching the covers. The main unit of your PS5 console may still be hot immediately after use, and continued handling of your console may cause burns.
Be careful not to pinch your fingers in the gaps between parts, and not to hurt your hands and fingers on the corner of parts.
When turning on your console, make sure the covers are installed correctly. If the covers are not installed correctly, it may cause the main unit to overheat.
How to remove and replace the covers on your PS5 console
First, check the model number of your PS5® console.
