    The most common cause for this fault is when the UNLEADED solder on under the CPU and RSX chip cracks, this is due to the solder breaking down due to heat stress. It can also be caused by the RSX or CPU chip itself actually failing, if this is the case then a reball is required.

    We repair this fault by resoldering the consoles mainboard using our Computer controlled Dark Infrared BGA rework stations, these safely re solder (reflow) the main board to exact manufacturers specifications. This ensures that your consoles main board is not damaged or stressed during this process.

    • Your data is 100% safe on the hard disk
    • If a game is stuck in the drive, then this is safe and will be returned with your working console.


    We will fully resolder your consoles main board, give your console a full service and upgrade the thermal compound used within the PS3. For your peace of mind we give you three months warranty.

PS3 brought back from the dead

My PS3 unfortunately got the dreaded yellow light of death which scared me quite a bit as I definitely don't want to send it to the tip. As daft as it sounds, this old console has some sentimental value to me. I sent it for repair to console wizard by using the parcel force option in the checkout and it made the process really easy. Just make sure you wrap your console up well to keep it safe in transit and then they pick it up from your address on a chosen day. I'm happy to report that it came back safe and sound and is working well again! At this point it has only been a week but the 3 month warranty does give me some peace of mind.
