As some of you know, I work in the tech support industry, so that last thing I want to do is repair computers when I get home. However, it seems that I may have to do just that. So after doing some digging on my PS3 issue, it appears that the solution to my problem is a technique called reflow soldering. It’s not a very complicated process, but a process that takes some time.
Doing this myself will only cost about $60 in supplies and a couple of hours of my time, instead of the $150 plus shipping charge to send it to Sony and wait 6-8 weeks. Sometimes I just want stuff to work….but with that kind of time and price disparity, I’m going back in with my sleeves rolled up.
