The Console Repair Guy

UPDATE: Since I wrote this 3 years ago, I've heard nothing but negative reports about this guy. Additionally, when my repair failed, repeated attempts to contact him were not successful. I don't want to badmouth anyone. I had one short-lived good experience but the repair did not last...


If you need a game console fixed, may I wholeheartedly recommend:
Background: Joel's "out of warranty" 80gig PS3 packed it in, and Sony wanted just shy of $200 to fix it. A difficult decision since the new "slim" 120gig version's price had just dropped to $299. I opted to get him the new machine. While looking on Kijiji, I found an ad from The Console Repair Guy. I sent him an email outlining the problem, and he concluded a new laser unit was needed, and that he would charge me $95. Short story longer, for that $95, he came to my house and picked up the PS3, and also delivered it back to the front door, repaired; all for about half of what Sony Canada wanted.
Outcome: Both Joel and James now have a PS3, meaning they have to find something else to fight over (the snow shovel maybe?)...

He received my console 2 months ago and up to now, I still don't have it. At first he answers and explains the delay, which I don't a problem with. But now, he does not answer at all. I think this guy cannot handle what business he took on and is now scrambling and failing at it. I do not recommend him at all. Deal with him at your own risk.

i`m curious, are you talking about this guy in this video or someone else. what city and state does he live in.
i hope it`s not this guy because in the video he switches the motherboard and fools everyone in thinking he did a successful re-ball. that`s messed up.

I was not trying to fool anyone at all. This was not a how-to video and was not meant to prove that I can successfully reball an Xbox 360. It is simply an overview of the processes involved and clips are taken from multiple repairs. I will soon be posting a full length reballing video to debunk these meaningless claims.

Dear blog Administration,

Neil sent back all my equipment and I do not have any issues with him anymore.
Can you remove the comment with his address and private info above?

Thank you.

I sent Console Repair Guy my Nintendo Wii on 7/30 to have the optical drive replaced. Payment for services was accepted on 8/11. As of this writing (8/21), repeated attempts to contact this person via email have failed and consolerepairguy.com is unaccessable.
