PLAYSTATION 5 HDMI PORT REPAIR SOUTHAMPTON

Another common issue affecting gamers in Southampton is the Playstation 5 hdmi port getting damaged. Due to the popularity of the Playstation 5 it is often moved from place to place and this can cause wear on the HDMI port resulting in no output to the TV screen from the Playstation 5. Sometimes the HDMI cable gets yanked which can damage the HDMI port and stop the console producing any output. It’s also quite common for the HDMI to partially fail and display a low resolution image instead the high resolution image the console normally displays. Repairing the hdmi port is a straightforward procedure for us. We’ve completed hundreds of them, you can watch many of those repairs on our Youtube channel.

PLAYSTATION 5 DVD DRIVE REPAIR SOUTHAMPTON

We get many requests to fix the DVD drive on Playstation 5. These problems include Playstation not accepting discs as well as laser problems which means your Playstation cannot read DVD discs. Playstation not accepting discs can be caused by the game discs being forced into the drive rather than letting the console draw the disc in on its own power. It’s also not unheard of for young children to insert objects such as keys, coins and credit cards into the DVD disc slot which causes a jam and stops the loading mechanism of the Playstation 5 from working correctly, we can normally fix this without any extra parts. With laser problems you might need a new laser deck which will cost around £110 for the full service. Our console repair team in Southampton can fix any issue with your Playstation DVD Disc drive so pop in and talk to the team

DEAD PLAYSTATION 5 REPAIR SOUTHAMPTON

Gamers in Southampton sometimes experience a PS5 that just completely dies for no reason at all, or at least is seems like no reason at all. The root of this problem could be a faulty power supply which is nice and straight forward. Or it could be a faulty component on the motherboard. We’ve had many instances where a single tiny capacitor has failed and that stops the Playstation 5 from powering up. Fixing this type of issue require a lot of skill and patience as well as the right tools to perform the investigation and effect the repair. We have those skills and have many videos showing those repairs on our channel. Sometimes though it can be a faulty APU, this is the processor that does all the hardwork inside your console. If the APU dies then currently there is no way to fix the system, replacing the APU is not possible because Sony has tied the CPU ID to the motherboard making it only work in the original system that it was created for. If you have any of these issues then our Console repair shop in Southampton can help.

XBOX SERIES X/S

XBOX SERIES X HDMI PORT REPAIR SOUTHAMPTON

The most common issue that affects the XBOX Series X is a broken HDMI port. Whilst the hdmi port on the XBox Series X is more robust than the hdmi port on the Playstation 5 it is still prone to damage. This is most commonly caused by cable wrenching which either pulls the hdmi port off its mounting or damages the middle plate inside the port itself. Always be careful if you have damaged the hdmi port on your XBox Series X or Series S as shorted pins inside the port can lead to serious problems inside your console. Our console repair shop in Southampton can solve problems with your XBox hdmi port. We’d go as far as to say that the resulting repair will be better that factory! You can watch many of many Xbox repairs on our Youtube channel.

The Xbox Series X and Series S can also suffer from another serious issue which is the Xbox overheating, leading to sudden shutdowns during gaming sessions. Contributing factors include the build-up of dust and fibers inside the console. If left unaddressed through a cooling system service, this problem can potentially result in irreversible damage to the system, leaving your console beyond repair.

XBOX SERIES X DVD DISC DRIVE REPAIR SOUTHAMPTON

We receive numerous requests to address issues with the DVD drive on the Xbox Series X. These concerns encompass difficulties like the console not accepting discs and laser-related problems, resulting in an inability to read DVD discs. The refusal to accept discs may stem from forcefully inserting game discs into the drive rather than allowing the console to draw them in using its own power. Additionally, incidents where young children insert objects such as keys, coins, and credit cards into the DVD disc slot can lead to jams, disrupting the loading mechanism of the Xbox Series X. Fortunately, we can often resolve this without requiring any additional parts.

For laser problems, a new laser deck may be necessary, and the full service cost is approximately £110. Our dedicated console repair team in Southampton is well-equipped to address any issues with your Xbox Series X’s DVD disc drive. Feel free to drop by and consult with our team to ensure a swift resolution.

DEAD XBOX SERIES X AND SERIES S REPAIR SOUTHAMPTON

In Southampton, gamers occasionally encounter issues with the Xbox Series X seemingly shutting down without any apparent cause. This problem might stem from a malfunctioning power supply, a relatively straightforward concern. Alternatively, it could be linked to a faulty component on the motherboard. We’ve encountered cases where a small capacitor failure prevented the Xbox Series X from powering up. Addressing such issues demands a high level of skill, patience, and the appropriate tools for thorough investigation and repair. Our expertise in these areas is showcased through various repair videos on our channel.

Occasionally, the problem might be a faulty APU, the processor responsible for handling the console’s computational tasks. If the APU fails, unfortunately, there is currently no viable way to repair the system. The replacement of the APU is not feasible because Microsoft has linked the CPU ID to the motherboard, restricting it to function only in the original system it was designed for. If you’re experiencing any of these issues with your Xbox Series X, our console repair shop in Southampton is here to assist.

NINTENDO SWITCH & SWITCH LITE

NINTENDO SWITCH CHARGING REPAIRS SOUTHAMPTON

A common problem that affects Nintendo Switch gamers in Southampton is damage to the charging port. This is a very common issue with the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite. The charging port damage can occur for a number of reasons, the most common of which is the charging cable being pulled and bent while the console is being used at the same time as charging. This can bend the port which then makes it difficult to plug the charging cable in and can damage the internal pins. This damage can also cause an internal short circuit which might damage some microchips inside the device. Fortunately, we are very experienced repairing Nintendo Switch consoles and repairing the charging port on your Nintendo Switch is an easy repair for our console repair team. No need to book an appointment simply drop in to the shop and book your device in.
