PlayStation Console Repair
The First PlayStation was introduced 27 years ago in 1994 by software company SONY. The PSOne was the first console launched and was a prime competitor to vintage gaming systems such as the ever popular N64 and Sega Saturn. There have been many legacy PlayStation versions since the PSOne with the PS2 being extremely popular with new age graphics and handling. But the biggest power play came when SONY launched the PlayStation 5. During the pandemic of 2020, an all time sales record was hit when 20 million units sold world-wide.

Xbox Console Repair
The original Xbox was developed and launched in 2001. An interesting note, most gaming systems are released in Japan and then subsequently in other nations. Xbox is a Microsoft company headquartered in the US and thus, was released a full year earlier in the States.
Developers often remark that Xbox’s operating system is coded wonderfully because it utilizes the decades of software engineering Microsoft’s “DirectX” API. In addition to powerful source code and processors, Xbox also was a pioneer in online play, launching “Xbox Live” in 2002. Microsoft’s server was so fast that a subscription program was released because so many users wanted to play online.
Common issues that can affect your Xbox System include some of the same issues as PlayStation and other consoles. Jammed buttons and other mechanical problems from standard wear and tear are easy fixes and represent most of the problems encountered. Overheating can also pose a problem. Extreme temperatures inside the console housing can cause components to fry and may need a complete system rebuild.

Tips To Keep Your Gaming Console Running Smoothly
We put together a quick checklist to help you keep your systems running at peak performance. These tips will work on most modern gaming systems including personal computers.
- Proper ventilation when operating your machine is a must. Be sure to let the internal hard drive fans invoke air circulation or extended play will cause overheating.
- Don’t set your console on the floor. Most players overlook this one and it can cause quite a few issues for prolonged periods of time. Dust, crumbs, and other particulates can creep into the housing through ventilation areas of the console. Prop your system up on a table or media center for best results.
- Be sure to clean your system with light soap and water using a microfiber cloth to remove dust buildup around the console. You can use compressed air to blow out ports that may have gunk buildup. Remember to always unplug your system before cleaning to avoid electric shock.
- If you notice declined performance and an increase in lag, try updating all firmware and support software. Deleting old memory cards can help too and free up some RAM of the operating system.
