OVER 5,000 DIY GAME REPAIR KITS SUCCESSFULLY INSTALLED BY
CUSTOMERS JUST LIKE YOU!
OVER 12,000 SUCCESSFUL PROFESSIONAL REPAIRS COMPLETED -
AND STILL GOING STRONG!
|Thank you for visiting my site - my name's Lynn Brown and I'm a professional game repair tech
based here in Oklahoma City for nearly a decade.
I started this website a long time ago when the old original black Xboxes were all the craze and a
lot of people were beginning to have problems with them not loading the games like they used to.
The Internet was still fairly new at the time so there wasn't very much information to be found on
the subject, and at that point most people didn't really consider home repair to be a viable option
anyway. This left a whole lot of people at the mercy of Microsoft or what few small repair shops
they might have nearby - most perfectly legitimate of course but some not so much.
I posted my website to advertise just how easy it could be to take care of this particular problem
at home and made up my own DIY repair kits to make the whole job as simple as possible. I
provided the same top-quality parts I use myself - the same few tools that were needed, and
instructions that spelled out exactly what to do; step-by-step, just like following a recipe. I had
thousands of very happy customer referrals after that and we're still going strong to this day.
The problem I see now though is too much information - from all corners of the earth people are
trying to talk you into buying and trying things that in many cases just flat aren't going to work.
Every device has it's own set of "tips and tricks", potential problems to watch out for, and certain
parts that may or may not be replaceable in themselves. Some electronic items are excellent
candidates for home repair, with very little to no danger at all of doing further damage, and on
the other hand there's a few devices that I personally still have trouble working on even though
I've already performed the same repair a hundred times over. When I mess up though I can just
grab another part and start over - people trying this at home need to have all the right tools,
good quality parts, and very thorough complete instructions from the get-go.
With so many people vying for your repair money it's getting close to impossible for someone to
just locate a straight answer about any of today's more popular tech items. Ebay is full of Chinese
import parts for just about every gadget there is and now almost all of them come with a
miniature screwdriver and a one-page set of "instructions". I'm sure some of them are quite good
but I see evidence almost every day of all the unnecessary damage that's being caused by
well-meaning people trying to follow bad instructions or install inferior components. My point is to
please be very careful with what exactly it is you're buying - for instance there are no genuine
360/PS3/PSP/Apple/etc OEM parts out there to buy in bulk - none. The term OEM is pretty much
an Internet invention and almost never used honestly - the only way to get a genuine Microsoft/
Sony/Apple factory made replacement part is by taking one out of another console. Also make
sure you know exactly what you're getting into before you start - never just go by one person's
tutorial or instructions, especially if they're the one's trying to sell you the part.
We all need to try and save a buck wherever possible and I hope my website will provide some
helpful info you might not find elsewhere - like the PS3 and Xbox 360 thermal paste "crisis"
mentioned below. I'll have DIY kits to take care of this in the near future but even if you don't
have one of the larger gaming consoles yourself I'm sure you have a friend or relative that'll
appreciate learning about this before it's too late.
