Introduction

I have a PlayStation 1, and i have decided to make a new teardown of it.

I'm spanish, so my english is a bit poor, and sorry for the mistakes made in this teardown.

Without further delay, we start.

This teardown is not a repair guide. To repair your PlayStation, use our service manual.

Here's the PS1. Turn the PS1 over and remove the six screws.

Remove the CD-ROM reader. You should be able to pull it out gently, although you may have to wiggle it around a bit to loosen the rubber holders. Remove the CD-ROM reader. You should be able to pull it out gently, although you may have to wiggle it around a bit to loosen the rubber holders.
