PS4 Repairs

PS5 Repairs

Game Freaks is one of Melbourne’s first Game Console repair centres, now famous for PS5 Repairs.

In November 2020 Sony released a new generation of PlayStation consoles – PlayStation 5 (PS5).

While it gained instant popularity amongst gamers, and is still low in stock worldwide, like any other game console prior to it, PS5 comes with its flaws and issues. Due to its curved shape, PS5 is very easy to drop or tip over which, while the HDMI cable is plugged in, very often results in a faulty HDMI socket, USB or Ethernet socket.  

We will provide a free quote for your PS5 Repair. A free quote is provided upon inspection of your console. 

Turn-around time for most PSRepairs is the fastest in Melbourne. In most cases, we get you up and running within 1-2 business days.

For Repairs on the previous generation console, check our PS4 Repairs page.

PS4 Overheating

PS5 Overheating

PS5 Fan spins very fast or PS5 shuts down

There is a number of reasons that can cause your PS5 to overheat and shut down once it gets too hot.

PS5 uses a layer of special liquid metal instead of classic thermal paste to improve the colling of the processor.

We can rectify most of the problems that lead to overheating like thermal paste replacement, heatsink cleaning or, where necessary, fan replacement.

PS4 System Corruption

System Corruptions

 PS5 does not boot up or shows error code

The operating system on PS5 can easily get corrupted. An unsuccessful upgrade, a software glitch or a faulty hard drive in your PS5 can all cause a system corruption. As a result, your PS5 will refuse to boot up and you end up with a black screen or an error code on the screen.
In most cases, we can fix the problem and get your PS5 up and running again.
