something to help grab these damn screws out of the holes that we can take them out that we don’t lose them so just take the star bump these two out you know a song in my room a big that’s it so I wanted to make this video a good one so it’s hard to turn off you a my ceiling fan okay decide now that the the screws all the screws are done or off now it’s simple just take this thing off this pull it from the back and pull the side off pull the top off and put this I put the top shelf to the side now here’s the inside of the PlayStation get the capacitor back here got just got your cooling fan your metal Brett some metal brackets you blu-ray drive the control board well first things first to get the blu-ray drive out we’re gonna need to take the capacitor out we’re not gonna be messing with the fan or these brackets we will be taking this part this little control board off and they’ll be one the later stuff whoo okay so the first thing this we’re gonna this can make these cables in the back and then we’re gonna take our screwdriver really doesn’t matter which one I mean this won’t be used for like the bigger the screws underneath it this one can be you this little smaller one can be used to take out the screws right here if you want to that prefer using the big one because it can because it kind has like a bigger bezel it has a minute a big bite to it and mine’s partially magnetic so it kind of helps with the okay now with the screws off and the cables disconnected you want to gently pull this out if you yank it out too hard you’re gonna rip you ten-to-one you’re gonna rip these little prongs right here that hold this on took that pretty much power this you know do you don’t want to do that I said that’s a sight okay now we got that gone taken off we disconnect this cable right here from the blu-ray drive and there’s a security screw back here a Phillips stick here excuse me just unscrew that but that’s go to this side and there’s a little connector another connector or cable connecting the boot the blu-ray drive again the blue connecting the blu-ray drive to the motherboard so it’s like a little blue a little brown clip you just pull that up and pop that popped out turn to when turn the system around again and you don’t want again just like the the capacitor you want to take to take you want to take this off gently you don’t want to break it you break it you’re pretty much out of luck I’ll let gently and set that down now with now that the blu-ray drives free fold it out and you can set your console to the side okay now that we got our blu-ray drive free there’s a total of eight scripts three on the top five on the bottom now I can take a really small screwdriver like something like this to take off the the eight screws you want to be careful with it at this point so we’re gonna take the bottom ones off and since you don’t have the console on your way you can pre keep the East groups in your body like right on the stick right on the side all right now we take the top three off

now if you’re opening up your system for the first time and you come to the point where you still can’t get the taking these screws off forget the two plates apart however when you come to the pub when you come to your to this point you take off the top plate off first just be careful because this part the this part right here can bend and you have to bend it back all right mmm that’s uh that’s the side now you also don’t need to take this part off there will be an extra let it be like a little piece of black security tape on one side nothing personal nothing too fancy just take it off and be done with so it’s it take this once the stickers off you take it off boom you got the bottom part of your drive alright now we’re also going to need to take off this top piece because we’re going to need to get to the connector on the drive to get to take the ribbon off in this part it’s not that hard there’s only two screws right here right here and there’s maybe a couple of clamps clunk the you know clamps right here and right here and be done with it you for security for safety sake you don’t want to lose this so just take that off put it to the side go ahead take that oh by the way if you have a CD DVD or blu-ray in your drive and you need to take it out that’s one thing I need to tell you if you already have your system taken apart and you’re eating you forgot to take you jot your disk out you can turn this gear manually I don’t know if it’s the left or the right you take it off boom you turn it you don’t think I’ll be turning it in you can manually take your disk out okay now that the skirts are done I’ll have to be careful autonomous of the board pull back push on those clamps and pull this off now as you can see we have a cable right here that we’re gonna have to take off and we got two more on the bottom not the two on the bottom or pretty much well yeah two on the bottom are pretty much easy just pull them and be done with whoo my hats yeah we’re gonna have to take the board off too because you got to get to the the back screws on this thing so first things first let me undo the cables the cables are done get back down here um I’m just not gonna I’m stressed I’m stressing this up this enough as it is oh yeah if you want you can also take this part this in another kick this cable off tune is set to the side you’re gonna need it but I’m stressed I’m stressing this up is this enough as it is any damage to dis board you’re screwed any damage to it during this process you pretty much screwed yourself because these boards are married to your systems motherboard you screw this thing up you’re done so you want to be extra extra extra extra careful so I take that ribbon off and again being careful there’s a coupler clamps yeah I’m so nervous I don’t want to break this I mean I’ve done this a couple of times for dry runs before I did this because I was waiting for the part to come in I don’t want to break it all right there we go get the board take it on and just put it right here now we got the board off suddenly get time to take this thing out as you can see it’s got four screws on each side so take our screwdriver okay many not this one it’s a bigger one where is it oh yeah we’re gonna need this one this one’s too big this won’t be just
