In this video I restore rare Casio Heli-Battle Handheld console. In 1980's Casio better known for their calculators and watches made also gaming consoles such as this Heli-Battle game. These days, they go for high prices on Ebay if they are in good condition.
This is a very basic restoration. AS you can see sometimes it's very useful to remove desolder parts like I did. Because I was able to remove the back of the shell completely and the speaker with the housing it was much more easier to detach the speaker and the battery contacts. But it's always important to make sure you can actually solder the parts back in. Sometimes a part can be so hard to solder back that you want to avoid desoldering it at all costs.
After the console was disassembled I cleaned the parts with soapy water. I had also looked online that the console should be clearly lighter color so I decided to give it the deyellowing treatment. The console was never gray or white like the Gameboy or some other consoles so it won't turn like that in this process. All colors of plastic Yellow but based on my experience besides gray and white, blue and green seem to be usually visibly most discolored plastics, also I've seen pink turn brown many times. Few times I've also seen black turn to sort of dark green color. This process will work to restore all of those colors, however if the original color in the plastic has faded this method won't fix that, it only removes the yellow/brown discoloration. Here is my tutorial for the process:
I cleaned the board with isopropyl alcohol. The battery contacts were nickel plated again to prevent the corrosion from reoccurring. I also replaced one of the wires going to the battery contacts. Usually negative wire is black and positive is red, like you can see on the speaker. So I know the wire has been replaced by someone at some point. Now it looks like more professional and someone else who might repair the console ion the future will not mix the wires up as easily.
During the assembly also made new glue for the lens from double sided tape. This is a great way to reattach parts that need custom shaped pieces of tape.

    @Odd Tinkering Maybe it also resets high-score or similiar. Does it exist some high-score function? The reason is that the button is recessed and made deliberately to be hard to press by mistake, so I don't think its a "soft-reset" button only.

    It's a reset button. Not sure why since pressing start/on will also reset the game. I assume there is a chance for it to freeze so that the start button would not work.

    The first and only video game console I cleaned up was an Atari 2600. The outside was all grimy and dusty, while inside was (relatively) clean. I’ve never had a head for electronics so I did basic work like tightening up a loose switch (probably loose again) and cleaning some dirt with iso. Most of the carts don’t work unfortunately since I can’t get inside to see what’s wrong. Love your videos, if you get an Atari 2600 I’d love to see a video on it!

    So many thanks, man, bring back old memories. I've played this this game long time ago. Back when i was poor 6 or 7 years old, this kind of handhelds was pretty expensive, but some guy in bicycle get around from one neighborhood to another, rented this thing for a cheap sum, about same price of a lollipop for a game. He tied this handhelds to a rope, to make sure the kids does not steal it, and when the game is over, he just yank the rope, so kids know their time is up, and they must pay for another game. Yes, i live on 3rd world country, and i am now 38. Keep up your excellent work man 👍, Sorry for my bad english

    Hi, I LOVE your chanel and I think you make amazing videos. Sorry to bring this but I think there’s a guy on youtube that is copying you. DEnewss recommended me his channel because of yours and after seeing a couple of minutes I’m quite mad and decided to come here. He clearly uses your style: silent subtitled videos, black gloves, and he even brushes the teeth of his rubber ducky 🤬🤬🤬 He recently uploaded a snes and a psx restoration. Has only a few videos in his channel. I don’t know if I should say the name of the channel, but I don’t want to give him more views... What do you think I should do about it?
