I Bought 12 BROKEN Nintendo 3DS's – Can I Fix Them?

I Bought 12 BROKEN Nintendo 3DS’s – Can I Fix Them? I bought 9 3DS handhelds and 3 3DS XLs on eBay for $425. They were sold as a parts or repair lot but the listing said some of them were untested. Once I started testing them I did find a few that were already working correctly… and a bunch that needed repaired. To get these fixed I fixed sticky buttons, replaced a lower screen, removed parental controls, replaced an R button, fixed a camera lens, replaced a top screen protector, reconnected a ribbon cable to fix an on/off issue, and replaced a wifi module. After subtracting selling and shipping costs I’m expecting to make about $21 each when I sell these repaired 3DS’s.

About This Video: I’m fixing 12 3DS handhelds (3 XLs and 9 regular). There were a number of them that were already working correctly but for the rest I did a lot of replacing (R button, camera lens, top screen protector, lower screen, wifi module) and also fixed some sticky buttons, removed parental controls, and fixed one with the on/off problem. The numbers are looking good though and I’m hoping to make a decent profit.
