A Brief TronicsFix History
TronicsFix was started in 2015 in Steve and Jessica’s garage. Jessica had a steady, full-time job while Steve stayed home with their young son. As he had time, Steve would buy broken electronics, repair them, and then sell them on eBay. Eventually, Steve had enough experience fixing game consoles that he started offering repair services for game consoles online.
Soon the game console repair business outgrew the garage and Steve leased a location nearby. As the business grew, Steve decided to make videos showing how to repair PlayStation 4 consoles and to upload those videos to YouTube. The TronicsFix YouTube channel grew slowly at first but grew faster the more videos Steve posted. By early 2020, Steve and Jessica couldn’t keep up with the demands of both the repair business and the YouTube channel. They decided to shut down the repair business and to focus on continuing to grow their YouTube channel, as well as starting to upload videos to Facebook and TikTok, and creating online repair courses.
Currently, TronicsFix has one of the largest audiences in the electronics repair niche and has helped thousands of people repair their own devices. As a company, we hope to continue to inspire repair, treat our world and the people in it with respect and care, and have plenty of fun along the way.
