What is the motherboard repair with reballing method?
Motherboards are consisted of countless electronic cicrcuits carved on silicon plaques, commonly known as PCB (Printed Circuit Boards). On their surface, a plethora of electronic components, integrated circuits (IC) and chipsets is mounted, which cooperate and exchange data, using the printed circuits. These components are known as SMD, or Surface Mount Devices. Among the most widely known SMD on your mainboard is the CPU and GPU chipset.
Rarely, it is possible that excessive wear may result to malfunction on a PCB or SMD of your Wii, mostly due to manufacturing defect, extreme temperatures, abuse or accident. In most cases, this damage is localized on the BGA (Ball Grid Arrays), which consist the most common link between the PCB and the integrated circuits.
The reballing repair method aims at reconstituting the damaged circuit from scratch on your motherboard by using advanced, cutting-edge BGA/SMD rework equipment.
If you observe one or more of the following
- Your system stops responding regularly, issue that’s only solved by resetting your console.
- Cricital errors lead to abrupt shutdown or reboot.
- The Wii is not working at all.
Then it is very likely we can repair the part that causes the malfunction by using the reballing method.
In most cases we are assigned to fix, the damage is localized, and this repair is greatly advantageous in comparison with replacing the faulty hardware.
In order to proceed with reballing repair, the exact source of the damage must be diagnosed, and its repairing process must be evaluated and deemed suitable as well as feasible. The viability and success rates of the reballing repair can be as high as 95% of the cases!
Our expert engineers and technicians, using advanced BGA/SMD rework stations, take up to the task of restoring the damaged circuits to their prior state. This is achieved by applying high intensity infrared radiation and localized heat sources in a flux coated surface, so as to liquify the faulty BGA, and then completely remove all its connectors. Then, a new ball grid is synthesized and applied on top of the PCB with surgical precision, and the SMD is reattached.
