Restoration of Extremely Yellow Broken Sega Saturn

In this episode I will restore and repair this extremely yellowed Sega Saturn Vintage console. The console is broken. It doesn't read CD's which is common with these retro consoles due to several reasons.

    Changing the potentiometer on the laser is only a temporary fix that may not last very long. It needs a new laser.

    The Saturn is such an interesting console. I wonder, are you reusing that Hydrogen Peroxide? Surely you must be, since you use such a large amount.

    I've got a Question, hope Odd Tinkering, or someone else could help me please: I have a functioning Sega Saturn the other day, the only problem is, that there are little rusty dots in the console, and i don't know how to get rid of them. Trying to rub them off with alcohol won't work and other things i wouldn't dare. They are on the modul slot and i worry that they will spread, if not dealt with and could harm the console. It was stored in an cellar for many years, before i bought it. Now it's in an safe an dry place for me to play with and i would like to play on it for many years. Any advice on how to get rid of the rust?

    Is it just me or is there a sense of satisfaction when you finally open that screw that hasn't been moved in years? My Granny has a Wii but the controllers don't work. Can someone tell me why? I don't know if you use motion to navigate the menus. I might do a restoration of it as an introductory vid. If you want to see this then sub to Cadel. I make no guarantee of a vid.
