Xbox Red Light Repair Done Right

xbox red light repairThe Xbox red light repair is done with our re-balling machine that we imported specifically to redo the processors on gaming consoles and Mac Book processors.

On the right you will see a picture on the older Xbox 360 consoles where 3 of the red lights are on, you might also only get one or two lights that might be on.

This picture on the right shows the newer Xbox Slim with just a red dot at the power button. Then you also get the Xbox 360 Slim E model that came out after this one that will also just show a red dot on the power button.

The Xbox red light repair is a fairly common problem on the Xbox 360 console and we do the repairs with our re-balling machine. Don’t use a hair dryer or heat gun like some repair companies do, this will cause major damage to other components on the main board and will never come right again.

Also, don’t try and wrap your Xbox in a towel like some YouTube video’s show you, it will also just over heat other components on the main board, you might as well just put your Xbox in your oven in your kitchen then “Please Don’t”

The Xbox red light repair can be done within a day to two days, this is if we don’t encounter any other problems with the Xbox itself. IF you cannot come to us directly we can also send a courier company to do the collection from your home or office address, even if you not in the Gauteng area.

This is due to lightning damage and power surges going through the HDMI port, this then causes the HDMI IC that blows.

PS4 Has No Power At All

PS4 Has No Power At AllIf your PS4 has no power at all, not even the light in the front showing a red light. This is a very common problem with the PS4 models, 95% of the time this is just a power supply that has blown and needs to be replaced.

Get A Free Estimate Here

Why do the power supplies blow on the PS4 consoles? Well, this can be a few different reasons, either if you had a power surge or if you had lightning in your area.

We have noticed that even in winter there is still the customer with power problems too. This could be because of a power surge, but we have noticed that since the PS3 slim there have been many power supply problems on the slim design.

The problem with the new design is that all the hot air inside the console blow out through the power supply. This hot air causes the components inside the power supply “That are already hot” get even hotter and they eventually fail. Once they blow you have the problem where the PS4 has no power at all, or the PS4 might come on and just shut down after a second or two, more on that in another post later.

Remeber if you cannot come to us directly and need your PS4 power problem sorted out, we can also do a collection from your home or work address with the courier company we use.

PS4 Comes On And Just Goes Off

PS4 Comes On And Just Goes OffWhen your PS4 comes on and just goes off again, it could be one of two problems. There is either a problem with the power supply and it just needs to be replaced, or you have what we call the Blue Light Of Death. Next, I will explain to you how you to test if it’s the power supply or the BLOD.

If the red light is on and you try switching the PS4 on and it goes off within 2 seconds, and then you try and push the power button again and nothing happens at all. Try plugging out the power cable in the back of the PS4 and plug it in again, then try and put the PS4 on again. If it then tries to come on again after you plugged the power out and in again, there is a good chance that your power supply is faulty.

If you don’t have to plug the power out and in again to get a response, then this could be the Blue Light Of Death problem you experiencing. This has more to do with the main processor on your main board than your power supply itself.

If your PS4 comes on and just goes off again, we can collect your PS4 from you if you cannot come to us directly either from your home or work address. All our repairs come with a warranty and we only use new parts to do all our repairs.
