    Our engineers can remove the most common failing Tokin capacitor from your healthy Playstation 3 console and upgrade this to Tantalum Capacitors, this takes away the weak part of the circuit on this brilliant console.


    PS3 Tokin Capacitor Upgrade

    The upgrade involves removing one of the Tokin Capacitors on the RSX Chip (this the most common failure point) and replacing this with 4 x 470uf Tantalum Capacitors.

    See the example below

    One is normally sufficient due to the increased Capacitance value of the four combined new Tantatum capacitors.

    This will help to prevent your console from suffering from

    • Powering off problems
    • Yellow Light of Death


    *** This will not repair the ***

    • GLOD (green light of death fault), when the console powers on, but there is no picture on the screen
    • High Percemtage of Yellow Light of Death (YLOD) faults - as this can be down to a faulty RSX Chip and can either need a Reflow or Reball repair (where the faulty chip is replaced)
