Developed under the name "Project Mercury", the Game Gear was the primary competition to the Game Boy, the Atari Lynx and the TurboExpress.

It shared much of its hardware with the Master System, and can play Master System games by use of an adapter. Sega positioned the Game Gear, which had a full-color backlit screen with a landscape format, as a technologically superior handheld to the Game Boy.

The Game Gear was notorious for bad capacitors, which means almost no Game Gears exist in the wild that work without repair.

9/12/23 - It has come to our attention that for VA4 models, when doing a recap of motherboard, power board, and audio board, three more 100uF caps are needed than this kit currently contains. Please plan accordingly for these three missing caps. The kit will be updated in the future to include these caps.

This kit comes with all the capacitors needed to fix most versions of your Game Gear:

  • VA1
  • VA4 (missing three 100uF caps for complete cap replacement)
  • VA5

INCLUDED:

1x Cap Kit

DOCUMENTATION:

NOTES:

  • Soldering skills required, small components may be difficult for beginners. Simply remove all old aluminium capacitors from the board, and install the same value capacitors in their place.
  • Replace all 10uF and 4.7uF capacitors with 10uF surface mount capacitors. Replace all 4.7 and 10uF with 10uF. Replace all 22, 33, 68 and 100uF with 100uF.
  • This kit now comes with 1000uF instead of 820uF.
  • Caps depicted in photo is not exactly what will be received. Updated photo coming soon.
