I Bought 44 Broken Handheld Game Consoles from eBay – Can I Fix Them? I paid a total of $560 for these 44 handhelds which works out to about $12 each. I’m hoping to be able to repair most of them and make a good profit overall.

In this video, I replace the speaker in a Game Boy Color, remove some serious corrosion from a Game Boy Advance, and fix some battery problems in a few Game Boy Advance SP’s. I also find that one of the Game Boy Advance SP’s was infested with little cockroaches! Gross! But with this many handhelds we’re going to have to do a Part 2 next week so stay tuned for that when I work on repairing some 2DS, 2DS XL, 3DS, 3DS XL, DS Lite, DSi, DSi XL, and PSP handhelds.
