Demolishing a DVD player

We broke open a DVD player and saw the different components.

The way we broke the player and hacked into it will not be of any interest to you. (Hint: The sledge-hammer method.) We saw many capacitors, resistors, and batteries, all varying in size and color. We also saw a 1000 micro farad capacitor the size of a thimble in our circuit boards. It was really fun breaking into a piece of electronics that gives me fun everyday and seeing what is inside it. There were 7 circuit boards, ┬ámany LED’s and a whole lot of capacitors. SCARY capacitors. Thankfully those capacitors, (As we proved with the multimeters,) didn’t have any charge.
