Insert the screwdriver into the manual eject hole and turn anti-clockwise to release the disc. This may require serveral turns of the screw. There is a layer of plastic which you will need to push through to remove the screw. Don’t worry – this won’t affect the warranty.

Turn off the PlayStation 4 system
Unplug the power, HDMI, and any other cables from the back of your PlayStation 4 system.
Place the PlayStation 4 on a clean, flat surface in front of you, so the front of the system is on the left. (The PlayStation logo on the top of the PlayStation 4 should be on the right hand side).
Place your palms on the top panel and let your fingers rest on the far side of the system.
Apply moderate, even pressure near the seam with your palms, and using your fingers as leverage, slide the top panel away from you. A click will be heard, and the panel will move about 7mm. Lift the panel off starting from the left side.
Slide the screwdriver into the vent and turn the screw anti-clockwise until the disc can be seen peeking out of the disc slot. This may require several turns of the screw. Very little effort is required to turn the screw.
