XBOX 360 Repair

The Microsoft XBox 360 console is subject to a number of technical problems that can render it unusable. Many of the issues can be identified by a series of red lights flashing on the face of the console; the three flashing red lights (nicknamed the “Red Ring of Death”) being the most infamous. There are other issues that arise with the console, such as discs becoming scratched in the drive and “bricking” of consoles due to dashboard updates.

PS3 Yellow Light YLOD Fault


Some people try to repair this problem themselves, possibly using a quick ‘guide’ on the Internet , but unless you have a professional re-ball/re-flow set-up, you are almost definitely going to have a very short term fix, and will make a professional  fix much more difficult in the future, if not impossible – also – if your going to attempt it , make sure you don’t heat the GPU too much as it will damage the onboard RAM.
If your Playstation 3 experiences a flashing yellow light, or the lights going from green to yellow, then blinks red, then we can fix it for you. This is usually a problem with the motherboard, it’s the PlayStation’s equivalent of the XBox 360 3 red light fault  - the GPU develops ‘cold’ solder joints underneath , which we can fix for much less than Sony charges (£140) and also won’t lose all your game saves or downloads .

£85 with a 90 day warranty

 Wii

There are a number of issues that can affect the Nintendo Wii, note that with the release of dual-layer Wii Optical Discs, some Wii systems had difficulty reading the high density software due to contaminated laser lenses, Nintendo has offered to repair this issue for free.
A couple of the common issues we can provide prices for are

Regardless of the problem, if your Wii is out of warranty then bring it down for us to have a look at and we’ll provide you with a free repair quote. If you have any questions or want more information then please contact us.

Tips

As with XBox and PS3 there is no 100% success rate – occasionally the board has suffered ‘ circuit pads/tracks lifting ‘ – this problem is not repairable and the motherboard would be rendered useless. Again – cooling is the key to a long life .. always ensure a good airflow .. hoover out the vents every month or so .. if you’re using it for extended gaming , give the machine a break every now and then – press and hold the eject button while switching it on (not 60G) .. this runs the fans full until it’s cooled down.
