Messing around with a failing CD/DVD player [HD]

I got this out of a bin at the charity shop I used to work at, so I got more use out of it in this video than it would have got otherwise. People used to dump things outside the shop out of opening hours, despite signs asking them not to. The shop didn’t have the insurance to sell such electrical things, so we had to throw them away, plus pay to have the bins emptied, so however you look at it, it was better that I took it home.

As you can see, I made sure not to touch the main circuit board, because there were some pretty big capacitors, and I couldn’t see where the mains electricity went.

I’m not sure there’s much else to say, except for the fact that I got bored and recorded this to show some friends in April 2009, and just now decided to upload it while looking through some old videos. It’s still pretty long, despite me cutting LOTS out – sorry about that.
