    Repair FAQ

  • Lens Replacement is needed if your console doesn't read discs or if you get disc read errors. This can also solve games freezing or loading slowly.

  • PS3/PS4 Hard Drive Replacement/Upgrade - store more games, movies and music with a bigger sized drive.

  • Reflow is needed if you have issues with the console coming on. Often they will have blinking lights on the front and nothing on the screen. This is likely caused by the solder under the graphics chip becoming brittle after years of use and cracking. The reflow process heats the solder until it melts thus repairing the crack. Since the underlying cause is the poor solder and the solder does not get replaced, a reflow is not a permanant fix but can still last years if done properly.

  • Reball is needed typically if the console has been reflowed before and the reflow didnt fix the issue or didnt last long. This sometimes happens when contaminates or dust gets under the chip or the small solder balls under the chip bridge together causing a short. In this case the chip will be removed, cleaned and reattached using a lead based solder which is less prone to cracking.

  • GPU Replacement is not common but sometimes the chip will fail rather than the solder underneath. We usually dont find out until the chip is removed for reballing.

90 Day Warranty on Reflows/Reballs.

This is our ACHI Pro Infrared Station that we use to reseat video processors on game consoles, laptop motherboards and repair other desoldered components on laptop and desktop computers.



Beware of cheap $40-$50 repairs. At these prices most people using a heat gun to resolder your Playstation or Xbox video processor that can easily warp the motherboard and damage other components, and rarely is a long lasting repair. While they might not charge you if the repair is unsuccessful, your game console main board might now be unrepairable, or may fail again in a week or two.

Our equipment preheats the board top and bottom and has a strong specially designed holding frame to prevent warping. Exact temperature control is maintained in the remounting process to ensure a connection with factory like strength and longevity.



This is an example of a graphics chip from a PS3. Its only about 2 inches wide but has over 1000 connections under it that keep it attached to the board. The foil tape is placed around the chip just as a precaution to protect near by components.
