Can't believe it worked! My PS4 has been sitting useless for so long and I felt to good when I did this today and it seemed completely normal again. We'll see if this works out over time or if it starts doing the same thing again. One thing I don't get is why they don't specify the washer size you'll need if you don't want to buy the entire kit, but I guess that's just marketing. Thus, I tore squares of glossy paper (a picture I had laying around) and poked them into the nails instead of washers. Works just as well for me!
