    You are correct sir! It's my candy dish that currently holds some computer stuff hahaha. I'm a big fan of Nightmare Before Christmas so I got a lot of stuff pertaining to it. And I have seen that article and that is insane.

    So after a few times over and over I am unable to get the 3D cameras to work. It runs on the same cable as the front facing one and that one works just fine. It's not an important component to play games so I'm not worried about it but it is discouraging to get everything but that to work. I tried taking out the cable and reapplying it to the port/flap it sits, thinking it might have just been not in entirety. But no, it's fine. Oh well.

    The solder job was bad but the battery can now charge without a problem. The case doesn't sit properly due to my crap solder job but it is only slightly noticeable if you are looking for it.

    All in all I'm happy and I bought Ocarina of Time 3DS to test it out and it runs perfectly. Buttons work as they should be and very responsive.

    Now I can finally play 3DS games! Next stop Pokémon Sun/Moon!

    Same here, say what you want about Tim Burton but his style mixed with stop-motion animation is a thing of genius. Best Halloween/Christmas film ever!


    (This picture seemed oddly appropiate. )

    Ocarina of Time 3D is a great remake, I'm still hopeful that Nintendo will release a HD version somewhere down the line. A HD Zelda collection for the Switch, maybe. I wonder if there's any way to swap the camera on the 3DS, since the one it comes with is nothing short of 2003 mobile phone-tier in how bad the quality is.

    Love that gif. Definitely appropriate and I approve!

    I hope so as well. It deserves a remake and a possible addition of more areas of possible. I know it would be highly unlikely but it would be awesome to have more land to explore and more side quests. That was one thing I felt OoT was missing from its initial release, then again maybe it's me just having a desire for more things to explore within that game.

    I swapped out the camera. Bought a new one because the one that was still in the old case had the cable split in half so it was useless. Not sure if it's the motherboard port or the cameras or the cable itself. Either way it's not a big deal, it's not really used for gaming on that console right? I'm new to the 3DS system honestly. I took it apart and repaired it before I ever played a game on it hahaha.

    In total I've probably used the cameras for a couple of hours, tops. And that's out of hundreds spent on games. Augmented reality never really took off on the 3DS. I remember going to a Nintendo event before the 3DS came out. They had a whole bunch of them to play and the camera/AR games were certainly eye-catchers and no doubt shifted some units, but beyond that I've never seen the features used. Tried out the 3D cameras with my cat but ultimately found that it was all very gimmicky. So no big loss on the cameras there, Sparky. If you had sold it to me I'd probably have never found out. Great job overall and I'm loving the inadvertent colour scheme.

    Thank you much! And that's good to know, I wasn't entirely worried about needing the camera for games itself but just in case. Not sure what it is. Oh well

    RECENT PROJECT

    Date: 4-1-2017

    And I'm back with another project! This time I repaired a PlayStation 3 my coworker found on the ground. He text me with the photo of it asking if I could fix it. Sparky's Project-img_1460-jpg

    Since he gave me the 3DS to have I was willing to fix this system for free.

    Now when I got home I plugged it in to see what the problem was. Turns out it has the dreaded "Yellow Light Of Death". So after looking around a bit online I found a guide from the same site that helped me with the 3DS. I bought all of the necessary items I needed (thermal compound, thermal pads, etc.) and played the waiting game for the parts to come in.

    I followed the steps and took the PlayStation 3 apart. Replaced the thermal pads and heated the CPU and GPU with a hair dryer since I didn't have a heat gun. Put it together and to my dismay it didn't work.

    Realized I needed a heat gun because it would solder the CPU and GPU back into place. Borrowed one from a coworker. Retried everything but with the heat gun, reapplied some new thermal compound. Put it back together and tada! Worked like a charm!

    My co worker got lucky as well with this freebie. It's the first generation PS3 so it can play PlayStation 2 games as well! I tested all generations. Had no issues after I fixed it. Started up on first try and everything ran smoothly!

    Some photos of each game. Make that two gaming consoles fixed!
