Guides for repairing your PSOne (Original PlayStation, PSX), and PS2 consoles

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I recently picked up a PlayStation SCPH-1001 at a flea market. I heard a little rattle inside, so I talked the guy down to five bucks. I got it home, and sure enough it didn’t work. I scoured the internet and found some old links that were all dead on guides for repairing the consoles. Although I just recovered these guides and I haven’t had a chance to try them myself, forum goers of years past seemed to universally agree that these guides, originally hosted on, were some of the best. I’ve pulled them out from the good folks at and made a few PDF’s of some of the most useful guides.
