Tools Needed:

  • Phillips-head screwdrivers (a few sizes)

Step 1 - Setup


Unplug all cables and make sure there is no disc in the drive. Push the power switch on for a few seconds and then off again to drain some of the stored electricity. Go ahead and remove the battery cover on the back now and set it aside.

Step 2 - Remove the top cover

Remove the screws circled in red.

Flip the console over and remove the five screws on the bottom. Turn it back over and lift off the top.

Step 3 - Remove the power board


Start by removing the plastic LED cover to get it out of the way. It's snugly in place but will slide out if pulled firmly straight up. Next we have the option of removing the power board or the CD drive first. I prefer to start with the power board, so that's how I'll proceed.
