                                      What causes this fault

    These faults are caused by the fact that every manufacturer Sony, Microsoft, etc have to use Unleaded solder during the manufacturing of their games console.

    This was considered a more reliable solution for the electronics industry due to the fact that unleaded solder has a higher melting point than Leaded Solder.

    The only problem is that over time, Unleaded solder goes brittle and cracks, when this occurs this is when the console displays the RED light errors.

         An Example of Lead and Unleaded Solder after exhaustive heating / cooling



                                                          The solution

    We can remove the Graphics processor from the main board

    Replace this with a brand new Graphics processor

    The benefit of this procedure is that we only use Leaded solder when re soldering the chip back onto the main board.

    Leaded solder does not go brittle and crack, therefore is the ultimate fix for your console.

    We use the latest state of the art Computer Controlled Dark Infrared BGA reflow stations to safely and professionally carry out this process.

     The Re-ball process

    1. Console is stripped down and cleaned

    2. Graphics processor is removed from the main board and the main board cleaned of unleaded solder

    3. A Brand new Graphics processor soldered to the main board using only LEADED solder.

    4. Console is re assembled and serviced.

    5. The console is exhaustively tested to ensure everything is working 100%



    The Re-Ball Repair is dependant on the motherboard and the pads underneath the chip being in good condition,any previous bad heat gun repairs can have a very negative effect on the fix rate

    If the console has been opened and warranty stickers broken, there will a £20 fee to cover our engineering time if it is deemed not possible to reball the console due to mainboard damage or the reball is attempted and fails.

    This is to cover the materials and time taken for this lengthy repair process.

Excellent service with great communication!

Sent my PS3 in for a reball to repair the YLOD. I was kept informed of the situation throughout the entire process, which was a pleasant surprise.

Highly recommended!

Very pleased with the service provided by Console Wizard, sent a Ps3 slim with what I thought was the YLOD but turns out I also had a faulty CPU. All issues resolved and a working Ps3 returned to one very happy customer and all for a very reasonable price and turnaround. Would highly recommend the service to anyone.
