Playstation 4 Overheating? Summer Is Here!

Written by
Got a PS4 that is overheating? It is record heat today. We fix that quick. This PS4 Pro had bad and improperly spread thermal compound. We can fix most overheating issues same day! #atxgamers #austingamers #esportsaustin #playstation4 #playstationrepair #ps4 #ps4pro
 
 
 

Let's face it. The hard drives Sony and Microsoft put in the PS4 and Xbox One are bad. They are so slow and with games getting larger and larger 500GB no longer holds enough games.  We can professionally install a superfast SSD or SSHD for a lot more speed. Load times and install times will all get better. We can even transfer your data if you old drive still works.  If you console is loading extra slow your hard drive may already be starting to fail, and now is a good time for an upgrade before you lose all of your data.  Contact us for more details if you have any questions about your Xbox One or Playstation 4! 

 

We have been repairing Nintendo Switch consoles since shortly after they came out. While fun devices they are prone to many issues.   One of the most common issues is not charging or powering up.  The charge port can be damaged as well as the internal charging circuitry.  Several chips handle charging as the main battery and both joycon batteries all need charging.  This can happen from rough handling when inserting the charge cable or putting it in the dock.  It can also be caused by using after market chargers not from Nintendo that can allow for too much power to flow through and burn out the charging chips. 

 

Other issues can include cracked screen and bad touchscreens.  Sitting on them or dropping them are common causes.  Sometimes the entire case can become bent.  We also can address issues with the games not reading, and memory cards not recognizing.  

 

 Switches can also overheat if they have the fan go out or get too dirty internally.  We have also seen speakers fail, the audio jacks go out, and sometimes they can no longer sync with joycons. Even if your Switch has been doused in water we can also have a good chance of repairing it especially if you get it to us quickly.  If battery life is a problem we are also able to replace the internal battery to extend play back to normal. 

 

We also are able to repair the pesky joycons.  They can have the sticks drift and any of the buttons fail.  Also they can stop connecting to the Switch and their batteries can start to wear out. Please contact us and check out our pricing for repairs.  We are located in Central Austin of Guadalupe Street and are the only full service game console repair shop in Austin!

Playstation 4 HDMI Repairs

Written by

Playstation 4s have proven to be prone to broken HDMI ports.  For years we have been doing repairs, and recently we have been getting more and more.  If your port is physically damaged we can almost always fix them.  Sometime they are pushed far back into the chassis of the PS4, and traces can be damaged which is more difficult.  We offer a 180 day warranty on all HDMI repairs, and can do it on any PS4 including the Slim and Pro models.  Check out our latest pricing on our Playstation 4 repair page, and keep in mind no one else in Austin has the skill to do this repair properly.  

We can fix any controller we can get the parts for.  We do all repairs in house. Our most common current repairs include Nintendo Switch Joycons,  Xbox One regular and Elite controllers, and PS4 controllers.  We also fix 360 controllers, PS3 controllers, and we can fix older controllers as well as joysticks or fight sticks.  We accept drop offs in store for repair, or you can mail in your controller for repair.  

Once you buy the repair then simply ship it in to us at Game Republik 3915 Guadalupe St Austin, TX 78751.  Be sure to include a piece of paper with your name, email, telephone number, and a thorough description of your controllers problem.  Yes, you can send more than one controller at a time.  If you have large quantities then talk to us about a discount. Please click below on the controller you have to purchase a repair for mail in, and then send it our way.  We recommend USPS first class package or 2 day priority mail.  If you have any questions please call us at 512.459.2244 or contact us on Facebook or Twitter.
