Made my first sale!
« on: September 23, 2020, 07:23:26 AM »
I'm sure you all know, I lost my job and have been occupying my time with some game console repair. I bought 2 PS2s on the cheap with them advertised as not working. One worked fine so I just cleaned it. The other had the dreaded disc read error. But the laser wasn't the one known to do it. The drive was covered in dust so I cleaned it and now that one works fine (the Q tip turned black when I cleaned the laser). The first one I mentioned, I threw up on ebay last Tuesday and by Friday it was sold. Made about 33 bucks in profit so not a bad haul for about an hour worth of work :) I'm just waiting for a set of rubber feet for the other one and I want to see if that sells just as fast. I think I may be onto something!

I also found a DualShock 4 at a flea market and bought it for 10 bucks on Saturday. Works fine but the sticks are shot. Replacing those and reconditioning the controller (it's apart. I hate taking those things apart) and I'm gonna try getting 40 for it.

congratulations on your first successful ps2 sell.  but i thought charging $40 for a used ps4 controller is a bit too expensive.  one can buy brand new one for $40, especially during the week of black friday where it sells at that price.

They sell for 40 on ebay. A new Dual Shock 4 is 65.

oh i see.  but i remember every once and a while, sony discount it to $45 and sometimes $40 if i remember correctly.  and in this past few years, sony also discount it to $40 during the week of black friday.

the original cost of ds4 controller is $60 but i was surprised to see some version costing $65.  not really sure why though.

Dick out Titan.

Dick. Out.
Who is this anamoly we call Jumpman? How is he able to do what he does and still survive after years of torment? It seems he feeds on the hate, growing with an intense passion to put unassuming members in their place.
