Reflow repairs and reworks
Performing very specialised electronic repairs to your equipment which is beyond the scope of most computer repair services here in the city. Re-flow soldering is a process where on-board BGA transistor chips are re-soldered to the surface of your printed circuit board. Solder joints fatigue from constant heating and cooling and eventually give way rendering your laptop or console unusable.

In gaming consoles and laptops not only do we re-flow the board but we will also modify the cooling system to better cope with the heat produced inside the machine which will give it a longer life.
Not all re-flows are successful and further not all reflow repairs last. If done correctly and the heating system is also modified at the same then a reasonable life can be got from a repair. A lot of problems with chips is due to a manufacturing fault to begin with and this is usually a result of the wrong solder type being used in the BGA. To remove a BGA in most cases in not economically possible as the cost would outweigh the cost of a new system. So a reasonable level of expectation must be used before carrying out these repairs. Reflows done wrong can render a PCB permanently damaged and would require a new board to rectify.
