Although new gaming consoles are built to last, they can run in to issues. When you want to get your game console repaired in Brisbane, and are looking for fast and affordable game console repair service, call us (07) 3613 0029. At this stage, you may be wondering what the problem is, below we have outlined some of the typical game console faults we encounter:
XBOX 360 & XBOX One Repairs in Brisbane
Red Ring Of Death (original XBOX 360 game console)
The cause of this was the move from lead based solder to a lead free solder which is a silver based product. Unfortunately, this solder tends to crack after a while due to the heat cycle of the GPU and CPU inside the Xbox causing dry joints under the chip. Most times a reflow will take care of this issue. We use infra red heating to do the reflow. To a set profile, some techs just get out the heat gun and if used incorrectly, these devices will render your box useless.
Disc Not Reading or the Open Tray Error (XBOX 360 game console)
This fault is yet another very common problem with the Xbox 360. These problems are normally related to the laser, and are easily repaired by realigning the laser, replacing the laser or replacing the whole DVD unit.
DVD Tray Stuck or not Ejecting (XBOX One and XBOX 360)
If the tray is stuck this is normally a misalignment on the DVD gearing and the drive will need to be stripped to setup the gears correctly. If the drive does not eject the disc then this problem is mechanical failure of the drive and a new drive will be required.
No Display But You Can Hear Audio (XBOX One and XBOX 360)
This can be repaired by reflowing the GPU chip and other chips associated with the graphics output.
Error E84 and E86
These errors are normally due to Hard disk errors. An easy way to test this is to remove your hard drive and switch the game console back on, if the error disappears then replace the hard disk.

PS3 & PS4 Playstation Repairs in Brisbane
PS3 not Reading Discs
This can be due to a Playstation 3’s laser being mis-aligned, or the laser is now faulty.
No Video or Black Screen
Once again this is similar to the ylod or is a partial ylod, a reflow of the board is necessary but, if unsuccessful, then a new motherboard is required.
PS3 Game Console is Dead. No Power
This fault is normally related to the power supply, the power supply does have ceramic fuses but if these blow then there is more to the problem and will need further investigation. If necessary we can fit a new power supply or look at what is or has caused the problem.
As you know, todays’ game consoles are used for various reasons including storing games and timeless family photos. If there is critically important data within the hard drive, we can recover your hard drive data and install it onto a new drive.
Error HDD faulty
When your game console goes to an error screen that tells you to reformat your drive, and after the format the same message appears, then you have a hard drive failure and will require a new drive.
