    Fascinating. I've taken the mother board out once, watching this video I can now do it in my sleep.

    Watched that video several weeks ago. It makes for a good indication of what the common weak points are in the system.

    Well he is able to make decent amount of money just fixing them, for what he pay for and the amount of money he can make off these units, you probably looking at at least 60 dollars per unit, so he is looking at like $1200 profit, It is easy if the person knows how to troubleshoot and solder.

    I just wonder if he checks any of them to make sure they aren't banned consoles before reselling them.

    Never seen him test for that, I seen few of his video, basically he try to fix them and see if their general function work, don't think he cares too much about online.

    He and because I love to open up broken devices are the reasons why I'm actually fixing my third Nintendo switch.
    1. Broken M92T36
    2. Broken screen and patched
    3. Not sure if EMMC or BQ24193 (actually waiting for parts)

    Crazy to think that in a few years, faulty Switch Lites could be on sale for less than £50 and the repair market for them will be booming.

    Incorrect, I've even seen him swap serial code stickers when he transplants motherboards.

    Fascinating stuff - he also has loads of other console vids too.

    I love how easily the soldering and stuff appears for him too ...
