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: semost.info/award/h4KNac90nr2qvIA/video.html
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: semost.info/award/nZiOhNWaprx5mKo/video.html&
The original model sticker was in bad condition so I copied it in photoshop and printed a new one.

I understand after spending that much time and effort into restoring the PS2 he bought for $7, he wound up selling it for $10 on eBay to a kid down the street so he wouldn't have to fork the shipping fee.

But what does it say? The word is with you, in your mouth and in your heart; this is a word of faith, which we preach, 9 A saber: If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 Since with the heart one believes for righteousness, and with the mouth one makes confession for salvation. 11 For the Scripture says: Everyone who believes in him will not be confused. 12 Because there is no difference between Jew and Greek; for one is the Lord of all, rich to all who call on him. Romans 10: 8-12
