Original PS3 back in working order

I purchased an original PS3 on eBay (BC with PS2) which started to run into problems a few months after I purchased it. I honestly thought I was going to have to write it off but I found Console Wizard through Google and after reading the reviews I thought it was worth a shot. I sent my PS3 using the fault diagnose option on a Saturday and by Wednesday I was called by the team who made aware of the issue and the cost in order to fix it. I got the console back on the Friday and I could not be happier as the console is working again and I recommend this service 100% cheers console wizard!

Excellent communication. Put my worries at ease. My PS3 had a reball and was working fine for 4 years then YLOD, so I got in touch with Console Wizard and explained the situation. Sent in my console for diagnosis and they soon found and solved the problem and called me to explain the issue about the capacitors, they also replaced a damaged cover (console fell over while I was packing it). My Ps3 was returned to me well packaged and with the game disc that was stuck inside and is working again as if nothing had happened. Excellent service. highly recommend, will definitely use Console Wizzard again if any other issues arise.
Thank you very much chaps.

PS3 diagnosed and repair.

I sent my PS3 console for a diagnoses thinking it had suffered from the dreaded YLOD.
However after diagnosis it turns out that the NEC/TOKIN capacitors had failed.
The team at consolewizard.co.uk replaced the capacitors with tantalum capacitors, re-applied new thermal paste and cleaned the electronics of dust and debris and the PS3 console was back with me the next day working quietly like a dream with all my games and data intact.
High quality work, very fast and efficient with good customer service. I highly recommend them.
