What do console repair services include?

The game console repair service includes all the tasks necessary to make a non-working or malfunctioning game console work as intended. To repair popular consoles like the PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch, your console repairman can do troubleshooting followed by the needed repairs. After completing the repairs, they can test the system to ensure the console is back to its original working order. 

Troubleshooting the problem 

Your console repair specialist begins by inspecting the different functions and components of your gaming console. They may also check each game disc for dirt or scratches if reading or loading errors occur. Your specialist inspects the cables, controllers, connection ports for issues. The monitor or TV and the Wi-Fi are checked as appropriate for any video, audio or connectivity problems. Once the problem is found, your console repair specialist works on the necessary fixes.  

Checking connections

Your console repairman checks all the connections that lead to and from the gaming console. This includes the HDMI cables, the HDMI ports on both the TV or monitor and the console, the power plugs and the controller ports. Your specialist can also check your internet for connectivity problems and do the appropriate fixes. 

Cleaning the internal parts

Defective gaming consoles can trace some of their problems to issues with heat management. The cooling fan usually causes this, along with the heat sink and other internal parts choked with dirt and debris. 

Your console repair specialist disconnects the console, shuts off the power and opens your game console’s case. They then clean the fan, heat sink, hard disk if any, and other parts with a non-static brush or blast from a can of compressed air. The case is reassembled once all the cleaning is done.

Rewiring the console and controllers

Some issues on your gaming console or its parts may be due to wires that have snapped or got cut from excessive bending. Your console repair specialist can check the wires on the controllers, HDMI cable or other connecting cables, and the power cable. Should any cut wires be discovered, your specialist can install new wires and splice or solder new connections.  

Replacing the non-working components

Any parts that no longer work on your consoles, such as the cooling fan on your PS4 or Xbox or the PS4 hard disk can be replaced if necessary. Note that your specialist may not have the replacement parts ready, so you must purchase these. Some specialists may offer to go to the console repair store to get these parts for you for a small additional fee.  

Testing the game console after repair

After your hired repair specialist has applied the fixes, they can test the console. They can check that the game loads up and works, both controllers function and respond as they should, and the video, audio and internet connectivity work as expected. If any issues arise, your repair specialist repeats the diagnostic and repair process until the console works without any problems.

Hang 3 lamps from the ceiling


Upper Holloway, Greater London

8th Mar 2019

I have 3 lamps to hang, all of them in the same flat - one in the hallway, two in the living room. The existing light are normal light saving bulbs. You will need a ladder for one of them as the ceiling is high, and perhaps one of the lamp's locations needs to be adjusted with a hook in order for it to dangle over the middle of the sofa. I would like a neat job - the flat is relatively new.

Great service, very patient and explained everything while working. Left the flat very neat. Definitely recommended - Thank you

Sew me some strips for my blinds


Archway, Greater London

13th Apr 2018

I would like someone to make me up 6 T shaped strips of material to attach with velcro to the back of my 3 bedroom blinds to block out light that comes through between the blinds and the window frame. My thoughts are that.. The long leg of the T should be 5 cm long. The top of the T c2.5cm with the loop half of the velcro attached. The fluffy half of the velcro for the strips should be provided for me to fix to the back of the blinds. (Iron on? Self adhesive?) Each strip should be 185cm long. The thickness of the strip should be a few mm at least to make sure it is stiff enough to naturally stand at right angles but flexible enough to fold down when the blinds are raised. They should also block light. The backs of my blinds are ivory colour so the stops would be ideally the same or if not possible, white. I hope this makes sense. I can draw a picture if required.
