Welcome to BAL-service. I offer repair, modification and cleaning of game consoles and other electronics. Electronics repair is mainly my hobby, but I have accumulated enough experience to offer many kinds of repairs on a professional level. If you are interested in my services, feel free to contact me.

express cleaning of PS5, PS4 and Xbox for 600 CZK

I offer cleaning and thermal paste replacement service for PlayStation 2, 3, 4 (Fat, Slim, Pro) or 5 (Slim) game consoles, or cleaning of Xbox game consoles and others. If you have a problem with a loud or overheating console, cleaning is a simple solution that will also extend the life of your device.

drift repair for Dualshock controllers for 400 CZK

I fix unwanted analog stick movement on Dualshock, Dualsense and other game controllers. I also perform a complete calibration after replacing the sensor on the controller. We can also arrange for cleaning.

HDMI repair on PS4 or PS5 consoles for 1300 CZK

Is your PlayStation 4 or 5's video not working but the console seems to boot up when you turn it on and everything seems to work otherwise? When you plug your headphones into the controller, do you even hear the main menu sound? I offer HDMI connector replacement for PS4 and PS5.

A broken connector is the most common reason for a non-functioning picture on the PlayStation, and fortunately can be replaced in most cases with the right equipment.

As part of the repair, I will also completely clean and re-paste the entire console (included).
