I restored this $7 Junk Playstation 2 Slim - Retro Console Restoration & Repair

In this episode I restore a Playstation 2 (PS2) slim which I got for $7 as part of a junk lot of consoles. Low end price for working device is typically around $50. Black consoles can be cheaper because there are more of them available. As a bonus I got a free game, DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi, it's quite common game and even in good condition not very valuable. But it's a nice addition to my collection, here is a link to my video of repairing the disc: huworld.info/flow/vide/uYSOnaOlnbnbjYA
I started the restoration by testing the console. I was able to power it on. I think it wasn't supposed to work but the descriptions for these consoles are quite often inaccurate. However it was not reading games.
After opening the console I tried to see if I could repair the disc drive. The Playstation 2 disc drive is known for breaking quite easily. The laser just stops working. I decided to replace the whole disc drive. Only the laser part can also be changed. After replacing the laser I still had to do a little adjusting on the screws I show on the video.
After replacing the drive I continued to disassemble the console. I cleaned everything with compressed air, soapy water and isopropyl alcohol and removed a little yellowing with UV-light and hydrogen peroxide. Tutorial to the process here: huworld.info/flow/vide/z5qPuKnLpbiqaao&
The original model sticker was in bad condition so I copied it in photoshop and printed a new one.

  • I remember when I was a very little kid, we had this big blue tote of old clothes that we kept in my closet. I remember very distinctly that we had a Nemo sticker on top of it. The problem is that I've moved twice since that point, and have completely lost track of both the bin and the sticker. I present all of this to contextualize what I'm about to ask next. May I purchase that Nemo sticker. Since I lost my sticker, my life has fallen into complete disrepair. I've gained weight, I've stopped seeing friends since that point, I've felt worse than at any point before losing the sticker. So please, I will pay any price.

  • tinyurl.com/womanonlineqpd7b C'è qualcosa su cui riflettere: gli scenari di base del comportamento degli utenti, che sono un vivido esempio del tipo di cultura politica dell'Europa continentale, saranno lasciati allo stesso modo a se stessi! Ma pianificare in anticipo è ottimo per implementare un ragionamento profondo.Così come l'inizio del lavoro quotidiano sulla formazione di una posizione predetermina l'elevata richiesta delle posizioni ricoperte dai partecipanti in relazione ai compiti assegnati! È bello, cittadini, vedere come i paesi in via di sviluppo del Terzo Mondo si stanno trasformando in uno zimbello, anche se la loro stessa esistenza porta indubbi benefici alla società.💕 Consideracoes ideologicas de ordem superior, assim como o vetor basico de desenvolvimento, requerem que analisemos novos principios para a formacao da base material, tecnica e de pessoal. Mas a fronteira do treinamento de pessoal cria as pre-condicoes para repensar as politicas economicas externas.

  • @Odd Tinkering, you can clean boards with ultrasonic cleaning (if you do whats in the video as business) and also apply wd40 original(after board is clean) to the board then run high pressure air thru the board while wd40 is on to to protect the board. wipe down excess on corners and g2g. Thanks for the uv light and peroxide tip, i used bleach lol Edit: forgot to mention, you can also clean boards with soapy water and brush clean. after that Isopropyl alcohol to expell and extract water, afterwards wd40 with hi pressure air....etc^

  • Hey! . . . . Did you know that there is someone who loves you unconditionally? Someone who loves you more than anyone on Earth? Well, he does. Jesus does. He loves *YOU* so much that he came while you were a sinner - not after you cleaned up your act - and died for you. He shed his blood for you, becoming the perfect sacrifice for all of time. He rose on the third day, ensuring victory over death, hell and the grave. He told the devil that he was defeated _TO HIS FACE_ and that is why there is so much evil raging in this world right now. Satan wants to steal as many people as he can from God, trapping them in eternal damnation. BUT - Jesus made a way when there was no way. All you have to do to gain eternal life is: 1) Believe that Jesus came and died for you. 2) Accept him as your savior and confess out loud that he is your Savior. 3) Cast away the things of the world and live strictly for God. There is nothing that you could do that would separate you from the love of the Heavenly father... except live a life of sin. Sin in the only thing thing that keeps us from God because he, like Heaven, is perfect and sin is not welcome in his kingdom. Do you know what you're escaping when you commit to Jesus? You're escaping the eternal torment that you deserve as a sinner, but Jesus died as the perfect, sacrifice to take the burdens of your sins for you. You are escaping the constant reminders of what you did on Earth that you always put before seeking God. The torment.. the agony.. it goes on forever, night and day with no end and not rest. Think of sin like stains on your clothes. When we sin, a stain appears, but when you ask Jesus to forgive you, he switches clothes with you, so when you are looked at by God, all he sees is a spotless robe, on his beloved child. How do you repent? Easy! You 1) Confess that you're a sinner, and because of that you need Jesus, and His Holy Spirit to guide you daily. 2) Turn away from sin and turn to the word of God. The unchanging, absolute truth that is basically a road-map to the King of Kings. Put your trust in the blood of Christ and you will be saved. Time is running short, you guys. The rapture is so close. Make the choice today... tomorrow is not guaranteed..

  • So you put a $30 drive assembly into a $7 console to make it a $50 console. If this took you three hours, $13/3 = $4.33/hr. That would have been minimum wage in the early 90s. Well done

  • I work at a game repair shop, one thing I learned is get a multi-meter and set it to ohm (the horse shoe looking thing) and set the "DVD" read pot (variable resister) to 2.50kohm or just under 3kohm by turning it left slightly, it is tricky and just a slight turn can change the variable. It should read, if it doesn't replace the laser or like he is doing the whole unit. We usually can do 17 unit with in 8hour if it's just that kind of issue. Just a friendly tip, enjoy guys

    • also pro-cleaning tip, we use window cleaner and rubbing alcohol mix together with a tooth brush and a rag, its dries faster and does clean up the system. Invest in goo-be-gone to remove sticker and tape residue.
