I really meant mushy, but i'm glad your both being kept busy. Any chance of either of you posting pictures of your setup? I would be interested to see the organized chaos I imagine. As for me, I'm kept busy with working and two young sons, eagerly awaiting the ps4 launch.
Hey guys, I have a couple questions about reballing. I have a local guy reball my machines and he always says parts are coming from China or that the boards were screwed, warpped boards or pulled pads. 5 out of 12 consoles have been total losses. 3 of the 5 lost were still factory sealed.
1- How many consoles are a complete loss on average?
2- How many chips have to be replaced with new ones?
It all depends on the system. It is hard to reball a board that has already been reflow numbers of times. But ones that are sealed I get 100% reball. I dont know what he is ordering from china. If it is a bad gpu they sell them on eBay for 25 and all other parts. So I think you might be getting shafted. I do reballs and won't screw you. Thanks.
