I have been repairing and modifying the PS3 since around 2008. I have also developed validation software for the PS3 and PS4 (BwE NOR Validator) which is still used today!
I repair using professional reworking equipment and all of my parts are taken from original consoles (so nothing fake). I also do other repairs to other things, but thats for another time!
All of my repairs can be done overnight if not on the spot! Every console I repair will get a full clean out and new silver based thermal paste.
Basically, your PS3 or PS4 cannot turn on but has a light these are your options...
- Hot Air Reflow* to APU/RSX chip, Liquid Flux & Arctic 5 thermal paste: $100
- IR Reflow* to APU/RSX chip, AMTEL flux, Arctic 5 thermal paste, New thermal adhesive & 6 Month warranty: $150
- IR Reball (Or Replacement) of APU/RSX chip, AMTEL flux, Arctic 5 thermal paste, Leaded Solder & 1-2 Year warranty: $200
- If issue is not caused by APU/RSX (Software/Other Chip): $100-200
These above repairs require an upfront payment of $50 (Deducted from the total)
*Reflow implies that the solder will become liquidous (melted completely).
Other Services (Including Installation):
- Clean out and replace solder paste of Laptop/PS3/PS4
- Backup/Flash & Replace HDD PCB (For PC HDD Repair)
- Anything not listed, relating to Playstation consoles
- I can provide console parts in bulk to other repairers or hobbyists
Below are a list of my recommended files for jailbreaking your PS4, have fun and enjoy!
