Broken consoles to play guitar hero on

You're probably here because  you're pretty good at fixing things or like to have a go yourself.  With Guitar Hero, the accessories are now cheap enough second hand to be able to get another guitar or drumset to have an experiment with. We at GHR know a thing or two about consoles and have several rigs in place to test our kit. With Wii, Xbox, Playstation and DS now supporting GH, there's no reason not to get a cheap console and have more than one setup. That way, if something goes wrong with your repair, you can take more time to fix it if you need to or even compare the dead one with the working one.

If you're not worried about looks, there are plenty of abused and dropped consoles out there which still work. Here's a selection of the consoles currently available by auction which are completely broken, slightly damaged or just in need of a quick fix:

For the repair, I'd suggest you Google the problem and see if there are known fixes in place to make it an easier repair. For example, Googling "red ring of death" currently returns 1.9 million pages so it's pretty sure that this fix is not undocumented for the Xbox 😉

Good luck and drop us a line if this helps you get a bargain that was a simple fix.
