The PlayStation 5 has been released and some people have already started to recieve their consoles. Some have already started to enjoy all the features of the new generation PlayStation. However some are not so lucky!! Some people have reported issues, glitches and some have completely destroyed them day 1!!
Generally speaking we have always been repairing consoles. The PS5 is starting to break and we are starting to fix them. You can watch our YouTube videos to see the quality of our work and the PS5 repairs we have done so far! There is also a collection of some PS4 repairs we have done. We do the HDMI, Power, Blue light of death, White Light of Death, No Signal No video and many many more. Some repairs are outlined below.
We will be offering HDMI repairs as usual. If you are familiar with our work you will definitely use and recommend to your friends, If you haven't rest assured, we are one of the TOP HDMI port repair shops in America, as Features on YouTube and TikTok. Follow us !
Things to note about the PS5 console is that the motherboard is cooled by a heatsink which is layered with liquid metal for maximum conductivity. So heat is an issue as well as the complexity of handling the repairs.
No Video Signal on TV
Aside from not having the HDMI connector broken, Some people are reporting experiences of having no video signal from a brand new system. That was never dropped and the HDMI port is 100% intact. And this is usually caused by the Video Signal circuitry on the motherboard. This issue will need motherboard rework.
Most systems will experience power issues, and as we have seen from the past with gaming consoles in general, and sort of bad voltage in your house can cause failures. Power supplies will need to be changed or repaired.
Blu Ray (Non Digital Version):
As we have seen from previous generations that the PS5 will have issue with the Blu-ray drive from dirt, over use, heat or physical damage , if the console drops sometimes the disc gets jammed and the whole thing goes out of alignment. We will be ready to perform those repairs.
Updates and storage issues
at the moment we have only seen that a few people experienced issues. so we are not sure if the SSDs are replaceable.. or what is the deal with any software., we will keep you updated .. follow us for the the latest mail in repairs that could come in to our shops.
the cleaning on a PS5 seems to be very straight forward and everyone can do it!! Just slide the covers/shells off the console and wth a torx screwdriver extra the fan and vacuum! they made it simple!

Previous information ( early 2020)
One YouTuber by the name of ACG has already bricked his system after an update or Hard drive data rebuild attempt that was interrupted. or was not completed successfully. His system fails to boot to the PS5 system software. that's going to be annoying luckily he has warranty and that is possibly covered, but he will have to wait for the warranty to kick in and him receiving a replacement system
Another individual, has posted virally on Facebook a picture of his system under water in his bathtub.. now how did it get there we do not have any news. but that sir is not even covered by PlayStation warranty. Sooo!! That's where TDR comes in

PlayStation 5 Release & Repair
Without a shadow of a doubt, many people have speculated what the PS5 will look like! Everyone has come up with many ideas of the new system, However all we know are just a few facts.
The PS5 system will be backwards compatible with at least the PS4 games. It was said that it is backwards compatible with the 3, 2, and 1 games, this is going to be awesome... Most retro system players want to see this happen. Especially the ones we repair retro consoles for. Now it is not cheap to repair systems, even though we are the cheapest, This will definitely reduce the retro repairs. Retro modding will still exist though as far as we know no one has any mods for the PS5 system, let alone know what it looks like.
At what price point will the PS5's start shipping? That's a non-conclusive argument. We have seen in the past that the original systems do get released for $399, Special editions, add an extra $100-200 on-top.. Now the PS4 Pro is released at $499, so We will assume that they will up the ante this time. $599 + for the PS5 doesn't sound too ludicrous compared to the history of releases.
When will the PlayStation 5 be released?.. let's look at the history of releases. and almost all the time the releases happen during Christmas time and the holidays. that's when all the gift giving is going to happen and that's when lots of parents dish out the money. Christmas 2019? or 2020? possibly more 2020 why do you say so? well... there are PS4 games that are yet still to be released and anticipated. and the money has not been sucked out yet. Big corps are notorious for sucking every last dime before releasing the new thing.
The new thing always makes the "old thing".. PS4 Pro will no longer be Hot stuff. and therefore all the rich and wealthy or poor and greedy will go out there to buy the latest and "greatest" ... great times to come! However with the recession to hit soon .. who knows maybe the sales will not be so great in the first few months and they might drop the prices.
Is the PS5 Repairable?
So they ask us, Tech Device Repair, Will the PlayStation 5 also need repairs... absolutely! there is no tech device in the world that doesn't need cleaning and repair, it is part of planned obsolescence. All CPU chips attached with RoHS compliant solder, will always need to be repaired. That is not all, Dust, Water damage, and insect infestations are very common with gaming systems.. No worries we will be here at the cusp of it all repairing your next generation PlayStation 5 when it does break!
