Top Console Repair related questions
Do I have to provide my own tools or equipment for my console repair service?
Usually, no. The console repair specialist you hire already has all the needed tools and equipment along with the requisite skills and experience. There’s no reason to provide them with any tools, though you can provide them with any replacement parts for your console as necessary. As part of the service package, some repair specialists may have replacement parts ready. Others may offer to buy replacement parts for you, but this can cost extra.
How long does it take to do my console repair service?
That depends on the problem and the time it takes to fix. A PS4 controller that needs repairs or a PS4 replacement fan installation can take at least an hour to do. If your PS4 console has heat issues, your repairman must remove the casing and clean out the cooling fan, heat sink and other components - which can take a couple of hours. More complicated issues like fixing the circuit board can take a full day.
Can a Tasker also help me with console repair service?
Absolutely! If you do console repairs and have more jobs than you can handle, hire a Tasker to assist. In fact, you can hire a Tasker for almost any job you can imagine. Some Taskers can do related jobs like circuit board repair and TV installation and set-up. You can even find Taskers for unusual, specialised jobs like wall mounting, computer assembly or drone repair. The trick is to make a detailed post to get the right Taskers.
Can I fix a defective console myself?
In some instances for simple repairs, but only if you have the right tools, skills, and experience. Doing this yourself is not recommended if you haven’t determined the problem; opening the case or dismantling your console’s parts can invalidate your warranty. We recommend hiring an expert repairman like those you can employ on our platform, or take the console to an accredited service centre to have it looked over.
Can I have my drone repaired or should I just buy a new one?
While it’s tempting to buy a new drone, hold off on a new purchase at least until you’ve had an expert inspect it. Some drones may be cheap and small to not bother with repairs, but the larger professional drones aren’t as easy to replace. If the drone requires rewiring or replacement parts, you can save yourself some money and hire an expert Tasker to do the repairs.
Can I do drone repairs myself?
Yes, but only if you have the right tools, skills and years of experience. Drone repairs can be very complicated and require specialised tools and equipment to do right. Even if you have all these, the parts are also tiny and require the utmost delicacy in handling them, so it’s quite a challenge. A better strategy would be to hire an expert repair specialist on Airtasker to get your drone fixed.
What is the “blue light of death” on the PS4 and can I fix it?
The “blue light” or “blue dot of death” is due to an incompatible TV, software issue or power supply issue. Fortunately, this can be fixed if you do these:
- Hold the power button for 7 seconds; wait for two beeps
- Unplug all the cables
- Hold the power button once more for 7 seconds to discharge the internal power
- Reconnect all the cables, including the power cable
You’ll know that the process worked if the power button is white instead of blue.
Can a Tasker fix my Nintendo Switch?
Yes, they can! You can find a Tasker to repair most popular gaming consoles, even the retro and handheld ones. The key to finding a capable Tasker to repair your console is to make a post with all the crucial details. Be sure to mention the brand, make and model of your console and the problems you’re experiencing. Interested Taskers who know how to fix your console will approach you with a quote, and you can negotiate from there.
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.
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.
