PS3 Motherboard Repair / PS3 GPU Repair

Common symptoms of a PlayStation 3 that need motherboard repair are the YLOD and the RLOD. You press the button to turn it on, it seems like it is going to work just fine, and then it shuts down again. Other symptoms are that you are in the middle of a game, and right when you least expect it, the system shuts down. You may get blinking Yellow Light or a Blinking Red Light in place of where the green light normally is. The cause of the probelms is typically overheating or excessively heating up and cooling down the GPU and the BGA that connects the GPU to the Mother Board. Repairs are $79.99 to $99.99.

PlayStation Repair Reviews

Took my PS3 here due to convenience and good reviews. Their staff is informative and friendly. I told them that my PS3 has succumbed to the YLOD and they assured me they could fix it. All I had to do was drop it off, fill out a form, then check back in 3 days. Really? 3 days ! Nice. That's at least 4 times faster than sending it to Sony! Thanks PS3 Repair ! You're the best!

Great experience all around! Normally I don't bother writing reviews, but I thought I was dead when I borrowed my friends Sony Playstation and it stopped working on my watch! I saw that a couple guys on the internet were fixing these consoles out of their home; but that made me real nervous. So when I discovered PS3 Repair Carlsbad- I knew that it was a legitimate repair shop. I was not disappointed after they quickly repaired the broken PS3 at a real fair price. Best of all now I do not have to buy my friend a new PS3!

Better than Sending to Sony. I have had my PS3 for a few years,and then this year it would not turn on at all, so I first contacted Sony. They said that they could send me a refurbished one, but that it would not be the one I sent them, so all my pictures would be gone. I have a lot of pictures on the PS3 and did not want to lose them, so I called the phone number and found this place. They answered the phone immediately and seemed very familiar with the problem, so I brought my PS3 to them since at least I would have a chance of getting back my pictures. The repair was supposed to take 3-4 days, and it took 4 days. It cost me $100 to get my PS3 working again, and it worked for about 4 months. Then it had a similar problem so I called them back and they said to just bring it in and they would take a look at it. A few days later they called me back and said that the PS3 was working, it just needed to have the video reset. I guess because I was using a new cable to connect it to my TV. It was not cheap, but they did always answer the phone and they did not charge me for the second repair.

This company exceeded my expectations! My Sony PlayStation would not turn on, so when I found out about this shop I decided to give them a shot at fixing it instead of buying a new unit. Anyway they did some super board level repair in 2 days and now it works great! Can't wait for the new Battlefield release!

My PS3 had a case of "Yellow Light of Death" and I had to weigh my options: A) pay $150 to ship it to Sony, and lose my saved games because you don't get the same machine back (you get a refurbished PS3); or B) take it down the street to these guys. "B" is an appealing option for many reasons: you get your machine back with your game inside and your saved games (as long as your HDD wasn't the problem); you don't have to ship it anywhere, get an RA number from Sony, or wait weeks on end; and last but not least, the repair cost is scaled according to what went wrong, opposed to $150 for Sony. PS3 Repair Carlsbad is one of several locations that take in PS3s, XBox 360s, and laptops for repair at a central location. It would be nice to be able to go to a lab full of people in clean suits and have them repair it while you wait, but the system they've got seemed to be the best option. After all, you'd be waiting at least as long if not double for Sony to do the same thing. I called right before close and explained that I was still several minutes away, and they were kind enough to stay open a couple extra minutes for me. I filled out the paperwork and away I went. Less than a week later I had - my - PS3 back in working order, complete with saved games intact, and with my copy of Modern Warfare 2 safely inside. My repair was just over $90, which was over $50 less than it would have been through Sony. It could cost you nearly $150 but at least you won't have to ship your machine; and while they can't recover your saves 100% of the time, you stand 0% chance with Sony. Recently, I had the PS3 get a case of YLOD again from over-use. I called and explained my limited warranty was up, and this time they were kind enough to prorate the repair based on my warranty having recently expired. The staff returned my phone call in a timely manner, and was very polite. I would recommend this business to anyone, and they have already earned my return business. I have upgraded from my launch model 60GB to a 250GB PS3 Slim in the meantime, so hopefully I'll never have to use this business again...but if I do, I know I'll be taken care of.

So much better than shipping to Sony! My PS3 had yellow light of death (YLOD) and needed a repair. If you have to ship to Sony it costs a lot of money and you don't get the same PS3 back... which means you don't get your saved games. PS3 Repair San Diego had a location right by my house. I called them because I wasn't going to be able to make it by the time they close, and they agreed to stay a couple extra minutes to accommodate my travel time. I dropped it off with them, and I got it back in working condition in a week with my copy of MW2 safely inside. Recently, my PS3 had the same problem, as my house is very dusty and very hot in summer time. My warranty has recently expired, but they are taking care of the repair at reduced cost to help me out. These guys have great customer service, good prices for their services, and is a great alternative to shipping to Sony and losing your saved games. Hopefully I won't need them again, but if I do, I would give them my business without hesitation.

Very friendly staff. Love the electronic check in system. All costs were published and explained very well and the system makes it easy to keep track of repair status. I highly recommend over Sony's repair option which charges you $50 plus shipping just to look at your console.

I had been having issues with my PS3 and thought of just getting another one instead of paying a high price for a repair but a friend told me about this place and said I should check it out. I went in to the store and was immediately helped by the very friendly staff. They asked me what the issue was with the PS3 and since I wasn't too familiar with the systems workings I explained what the problem had been and they were able to give me an idea of what the problem may be and showed me the price for the repair which was a nice surprise for me when I was still expecting a price that would be steep. Within 4 days they had it repaired and turned out the diagnosis was correct and that it was a problem with the laser. I was very satisfied as it worked like brand new. I highly recommend PS3 repair Carlsbad to anyone who is in need of quick service and excellent work by the staff.
