How to Open a Game Cube
Step 1: First of all, you are gonna need to make your own screwdriver tool out of a clear, plastic pen. Remove the cap and burn the end of the pen carefully. Don’t burn yourself during the process. After a few seconds, ensure that the molten plastic is tucked inside the pen with enough room to take out the ink pen inside conveniently. Once you do that, your pen is now ready to be used as a screwdriver.
Step 2: You can use your newly made screwdriver to take out the special security screws and then use a Phillips screwdriver to take out the rest screwdrivers. Make sure to keep the game box upside down during this process. There will be two screws by the console’s side and beside the fan. You have to now remove them by detaching the clips from each side.
Step 3: By keeping the front panel pulled down, you have to remove all the newly visible screws and detach the circuit board out of the box. Make sure to unplug the attached cables from both sides. By the way, the circuit board is only needed to be removed if you are replacing the moto from the device.
Step 4: Finally, remove the motor from the circuit board, and then carefully unscrew the laser. Well, that’s it; this how you can open your game box. If you have any questions, feel free to ask me through the comment section below.
