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: uzworld.info/player/video/jYe7b9B6lrjXiXw
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: uzworld.info/player/video/o528itagnremZaY&
The original model sticker was in bad condition so I copied it in photoshop and printed a new one.

  • Besides of the dust in the Ports. The console looks great. I mean if you play "zombie" games on it. Maybe it can be altered to look old again after cleaning and restoring it.

  • Blech, yuck!!! After working at a cable company store, I use to have people bring their modems and cable boxes back with roaches and roach eggs fall out of it.. looked a like the black “dirt” you had in there. This definitely gave me horrible flashbacks. Lol You’re brave for restoring that. 🤢

  • If I'm not mistaken mine is the the same model number but it is silver and I live in Brazil. I never saw anyone with a model like mine and modded chips never worked on it. Some shady sellers changed pratically all the parts inside, at least the chassi is ye good old silver - With a rare silver coca-cola sticker in it!

  • Although in the end "Odd" oftenb emerges with a new prodcut, it's not the main goal here. Observing or participating in simple repetitive behaviors/actions can have a calming effect. There is so little going on here in terms of color and movement that the frontal lobe--and even more so the hippocampus of the brain will tend to focus or fixate on the sense that is most effected. Here it the sounds. The wisk of the scrub brush. The quiet hum of the DVD spinning or the crips pop as plastic parts are, with a ecomony of force and preffure, popped from their snug fulcrum points. Probably 90% of the people that watch his videos all the way through don't quite know why. But if you askedthem I believe many would say they find it relaxing. Like coloring with crayons--same part of the brain. A simple action, but halfway through you sit up, realizing your nose was five inches from the paper and you are holding your breath at time in order to stay within the lines. This is an example of the same thing, it had gained popularity recently: uzworld.info/player/video/pYGvg9ejh6qnfog With this video, though, imagine how jarring and ruinous if he started talking. It would be worthless.
