                 Sony PS3 Reball service




      Console Wizard are able to offer a Reball repair service for your Sony PS3


If your console suffers from the YLOD or graphics problems, this is is the permanent fix for these errors.


Have you been told that your console is un repairable?


This repair can repair most of the previously none repairable consoles. This would depend on the main board not being damage following an amateur repair attempt.


PLEASE NOTE: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




                                        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



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%




With this repair we extend the warranty given for the same fault occurring to 6 months ( some exclusions may apply).


This repair is more expensive than the standard reflow service we offer, but is still considerably cheaper than a repair carried out by Sony and comes with the extra warranty (6 months, instead of the normal 3 months)
