Hi All,

My original Game Gear (a Xmas present) from the 90s is in desperate need of a recapping. Can anyone help perform the necessary work to bring it back to life?

Many thanks

Are the caps with the exception of the sound and power board caps just regular radial electrolytic caps in a fancy plastic casing? Are the pads surface mount though?

TC recapped my Game Gear, although it was working before I sent it and sound was crisp and clear, when it returned I can now have my contrast on Half (not full as before) , ghosting is reduced (but the screen are bad to start off with), the main bonus for me is that my master system converter now works and I can play master system games without the screen going off :)

really good job.

Received the cap kit today, sending PM for details.

Sardine - I very much look forward to clearer audio (its super quiet) and perhaps better visuals. This particular GG was a 1991 Christmas present so would be delighted to have it back in working order.
