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.
