Hi and thanks for looking.....

 

I have several DSs and a few PSPs in need of love.   Bad screens on some, others won't turn ON at all, some have weird looking/cracked displays, etc.etc....things that I'll assume are more common issues. (?)  

It seems like a terrible shame to continue to let them 'rot' in storage, going unused and unloved.

:(

It's only common to those, who can't seem to be careful with them.
If needed, you can always try to Contact Nintendo or Sony, to send those in for Repair.
If not, there'll be a couple of Repair Stores near you (fun fact: A majority of those Repair Stores here, are ran by Turkish people).

"It's only common to those, who can't seem to be careful with them."
 

It's terribly sad, some of the the things I've seen/owned.   I swear, with some of these systems and handhelds I get from the wild it's almost as if the damages are malicious.  Years ago I had an NES deck that was (no joke here) filled with dead bugs and potato chip crumbs....people can be repulsive.

 

It's natural to first think "Ah, must have been owned by a very young/careless kid..", but the sad fact is, most of these systems in question I purchased from adult owners.   :(

 

I had a guy in Norway that I'd regularly send things like this to, but we haven't spoken in ages.

Oh, so you bought those?
Well, that changes things around.

That's why I hardly buy used stuff, but if I do, I always make sure, I only buy something with an actual Photo Attached (not an Illustration).
But generally, I never had problems from Dutch, German, and Japanese owners, as Dutch, (West-)German, and Japanese people tend to be very clean people (as in, keep their stuff in at least Mint Condition).
However, you should really be careful, when buying from China, UK, or any Muslim Country, these tend to be really dirty at times.

I dunno about other countries' goods being "dirtier" than others, but yeah, I know the deal with second-hand goods.  I have bought clean and filthy things from all over the globe - Japan, UK, Italy, Nederland, etc.etc.  I never really saw a correlation between a country's goods and their cleanliness or lack there of, personally. I have been wheeling and dealing since the late 70s.   ;)

I rarely buy retail, I just don't see the sense in it, especially these days when electronic goods become 'old news' in a matter of months.

 

The dead/down handhelds aren't suffering from a cleanliness issue, anyhow - I knew they were non-working and bought them non-working with the intent of having them repaired at a later date.  (I got them super cheap, of course...again, I have been doing this for over 30 years...)
