Anybody know how to fix a Playstation 1?

Try taking the pictures from slightly further away and tap the screen so it focuses.

I still say a sledge hammer will solve all your problems

It’s a little better, this is as good as it gets with my phone. And btw, it doesn’t have a focus feature at all. But the dried stuff is a bit more visible. For the RAM, it’s all over the underside of the chips.

Not yet. Before I hammer it, I’ll see what I can salvage.

Perhaps just put it back together carefully, and try and sell it to your local thrift store, some idiot my come in and buy it thinking they are getting a bargain, only to get home and find it has no picture…

The whole reason for going there in the first place was to see what I could find to take apart. There is an SRAM chip on this PS1 that is actually very very helpful. It’s the exact chip I need for my 8 bit game console.

If you want to go the scam route, then do it the proper way: just after the “Playstation” logo, write a big “4”

I believe that already happened…

I believe that was what the smurf intended to point out :slight_smile:

Dammit. How did I not see that.

Yeah, they got me. But I was kind of expecting it to be broken. I mainly got it for parts anyway. It was only $3, i really don’t care.
