How to Find a PS5 Repair Provider

Rather than replace your broken PS5, you can save hundreds of dollars by repairing it. Plus, it’s easy to find a PS5 repair provider. Here’s what you need to know about finding local repairs for your PS5.

How Much Do PS5 Repairs Cost?

If your PS5 is broken, there’s a chance to get the repairs for free if it is still covered under the initial limited warranty. All PlayStation devices (including consoles, controllers, and headsets) will come with a limited warranty that usually lasts for 12 months after the date of purchase. If the device breaks within the warranty period, PlayStation will repair the device for free.

However, the limited warranty only covers manufacturing defects. So, if you break your console by spilling liquid or by dropping it, you won’t be able to use the limited warranty to repair it.

PlayStation also includes a troubleshooting guide to help you resolve common issues, including the following:

  • PS5 console picture and sound issues
  • Console power issues
  • Power indicator lights on PS5
  • Change audio settings
  • Enable and adjust 4k resolution
  • Eject stuck disk

Sony recently stopped offering its “Fix & Replace” service, which offered out-of-warranty repairs for Sony devices. Sony would charge around $250 for repairs, which is significantly more expensive than other repair options. Although the discontinuation of this service is disheartening for many, there are still numerous options to get your device repaired.

If your PS5 is no longer covered by the warranty and you can’t resolve the issues with the troubleshooting guide, you can take it to a repair shop for out-of-warranty repairs. Using an independently owned repair shop is your most affordable option and will cost between $50 and $200, depending on the severity of the issue.

How to Select a PS5 Repair Shop

Local repair shops often offer high-quality, reputable, and low-cost repairs. However, if you do a fast internet search, you’ll likely find more than a dozen shops in your area. So, how do you choose the best shop?

  • Customer reviews: Customers often leave genuine reviews for repair shops. Read through the reviews and make sure the site delivers high-quality service.
  • Independently owned: You can choose between chain repair shops and independently owned locations. Independent shops often have better customer service.
  • Upsie partnerships: If you see an Upsie sign in the window, it means that Upsie works directly with the shop and has confirmed that the location has great service!

Local repair shops will help you save money on the cost of the repair. In addition, repairing the device makes more sense than replacing it with a new console. Since repair shops charge between $50 and $200, you can save hundreds of dollars by repairing your console.

Purchase a Warranty for Your Next Gaming Console

Although you have plenty of options when it comes to finding a PS5 repair, you can skip the headache by purchasing an Upsie warranty for your next PS5 console. Upsie’s warranties are affordable, comprehensive, and include great customer support.

With an Upsie PS5 warranty, your device has coverage from:

  • Drops and cracks
  • Liquid damage
  • PlayStation power failure
  • Speaker and sound failure
  • PlayStation hard drive failure
  • And more!

In addition, customers can make 24/7/365 unlimited claims up to the console’s purchase price. Best of all, Upsie’s warranties are up to 70% more affordable than options elsewhere. For example, a two-year warranty for the PS5 is just $48.99, and a three-year warranty is $74.99. In contrast, a two-year warranty from Best Buy is $79.99. This means that Upsie’s three-year warranty with the same coverage costs less than Best Buy’s two-year warranty.

With complete accidental coverage protection, you can rest easy knowing that Upsie covers most forms of damage. You can purchase an Upsie warranty for PS5 consoles and other gaming equipment bought in the last 60 days. You can also protect your gaming controllers and headsets with Upsie.
