The editors of Ifixit, which promotes the concept of self-repair of electronic equipment, this time took on the PlayStation Portal.
The entire process is documented in the video. It turns out that removing the side covers of the controller built into the PlayStation Portal is not difficult, which should make it much easier to correct the analog drift that occurs on DualSense controllers, where the problem is much more difficult to fix.
Ifixit says the device resembles a standard tablet. Most of the space under the case is occupied by the battery. Ifixit praises the design of Sony devices for making the job of electronics do-it-yourselfers much easier. But not everything is perfect here. Some components are soldered to the motherboard, and replacing the battery can be difficult for inexperienced repairers.
