Have you guys ever taken apart a console, or controller to fix it/clean it before?

I remember about 6 months ago I took apart my Dreamcast to clean it out and fix it as it had this problem of always restarting half way through a game.

I watched a video online and found out how to do it, luckily I didn't mess it up and it worked fine.

I also have the intention to clean the controller as well, but I'm waiting on someone I know to do a video before I attempt to do it.

So any of you guys repair some consoles, or other paraphernalia?
NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, GBA/Micro/SP/DS PS1, PS2 and Xbox 360.
1) They were dirty and they really needed a fine cleaning
2) I find that stuff enjoyable.
3) Was being repaired with other parts from other consoles
(Either the console needed a fine cleaning, or was bricked and I was interested in seeing the insides).
I plan to fix up my NES' contacts so it doesn't flash random colors.
I really need to clean my NES.
