uBreakiFix Winter Park now specializing in PS3 and Xbox 360 reflows
uBreakiFix in Winter Park is now specializing in PS3 and Xbox 360 reflows. You’ve probably either landed on our blog because you need to get your PS3 or Xbox 360 repaired. By now I’m sure you have read a bunch of forums about the Yellow Light of Death (YLOD) or the Red Ring of Death (RROD).
The Problem: The PS3 can suffer from the Yellow Light of Death (YLOD) and the Xbox 360 has the issue called the Red Ring of Death (RROD). This is due to a manufacturer’s defect that occurs when the board is being created. The vast amounts of heat generated when the console is or has been in use for long periods of time; was not taken into consideration during the manufacturing process. We call this “heat stress”. Heat stress causes the solder joint that connects the (GPU) graphics processing unit (the chip that controls all the visuals in your game) and the motherboard, to separate and eventually break. When the solder joint breaks, your system will show the YLOD on the PS3 or RROD on the Xbox 360 .
