This cap kit for the Game Gear contains all parts necessary to replace the electrolytic capacitors of any VA1 model Game Gear. All caps are included for the:
- Main PCB
- Sound PCB
- Power PCB
This kit replaces surface mount with radial lead capacitors
If you have a really early Japanese VA1 with sound PCB 837-7400-01, this may not be the best capacitor kit for this version.
Some replacement caps may have higher voltage ratings than the original parts (e.g. 100uF 10v instead of 100uF 6.3v)
For capacitor lists and maps, please see our Game Gear Wiki page.
For easier installation of SMD-type Audio PCB caps with a soldering iron, the plastic spacer on the bottom of the cap can be clipped off, giving extra space to fit the soldering iron & solder.

Works perfectly, easy to install, worked first time. Thanks-
Same as title. Used to fix a game gear where the screen wasn't showing up properly.
First I'd like to thank Videogamerestoration for inspiring me to repair my old hand helds. Second the upgrade is a work in progress which I plan on sharing with my little nephews. Once I've repaired enough of them for each to to enjoy I will take pictures and will post on my social media. Thank you have held for providing the parts required to make these systems 100% operational again. 👍🏽👾🕹️🎮
Best kit for capacitor repair I've used so far.
The kit works well. I was able to identify and change out all the capacitors but it would be nice if it included a list or a layout as this could have sped up the project. I did not have access to the Wiki when I was doing this mod and a printout would have been nice. Not an issue but this is re-sold from another company. The price was the same so no issue there.
Excellent website, it had everything I wanted and then some. I refurbished a GameGear I had with a new case, buttons, speaker etc. (everything but the boards). The new parts felt just the same as the originals.
The capacitor kit came with everything I needed, nothing bent or broken. However, I haven’t installed them yet.
Also shipping was speedy.
