A Peek in GameStop's Video Game & Console Refurbishing Facility

350°
283w ago - Ever wondered what GameStop's video game and console refurbishing facility looks like?

The folks at DallasNews (linked above) have made available pictures of one including how consoles are cleaned and tested.

To quote: Workers test rows of consoles, including vintage Xbox systems. Both movies and games are tested on the systems that support DVD or (with the PS3) Blu-ray playback.

GameStop's refurbishment facility is as loud as it busy, since almost every station has a compressed air nozzle hanging from overhead to clean out dust from inside consoles. It's the high-tech, industrial version of blowing on your NES cart.

After the game discs have been removed from their original packaging, inspected and cleaned, they go back into cases and are sorted for shipment back to the stores.

PSP systems are tested in batches of 30, with multiple batches scattered around the warehouse. Some workers were busy disassembling, cleaning, soldering and repairing PSPs.

Guide: How to Unbrick Your Nintendo Wii Console

1200°
284w ago - This is a TUT to unbrick your Wii with the internal Rescue Menu. You can do this with and without Starfall.

Without Starfall you have to MOD a GC Controller to press all 4 ways of the digi pad to same time and you need a Original Game Disc with a update on it, higher as your installed FW. If you have a Modchip set to autoboot disc's than you can use a backup instead of a Original disc. For Starfall you dono need to MOD your GC Pad.

And you could use Backups if the disc size will match the 4,37GB. I self have testet the semi unbrick disc but it does not work without a modchip. There for I made the "Universal Unbrick Disc" becouse the disc will match the 4,37GB and it hase the FW 3.3 update + the WAD Manager as main.dol in the game partition.I will show you how to start both rescue menu's, with an without starfall and i will use the universal unbrick disc with starfall to upgrade (unbrick) my Wii to FW3.3.

When you could use it?

If you run into a brick and your Wii does not start the menu any more but will boot (green led and spinning drive) you have a good chance to be able to start the Wii internal rescue menu to install a FW update or the system menu.wad + IOS via WAD Manager what will unbrick your Wii if you lucky. If your Wii does not boot any more than your only chance...
