It takes awhile to change them all but it does clean up sound output a fair bit and is great practice for cleaning up old solder and installing through hole caps.
Everything works great, however I wasn’t able to change the 5 behind the screen because I was afraid of damaging the screen (which is a fault of the DMG design, but something to consider when buying)
Game Boy DMG Original Capcitor Kit - Console 5
Replacing the old caps in your DMG should be essential - the OEM ones are very old now and can potentially leak and cause damage to your board. It can also cause other issues that can potentially lead to a non-working DMG, or lead to smaller issues like lots of noise and grime on the headphone output. With desoldering wick and simple soldering skills I found replacing them all to be pretty easy! The components are rather big compared to modern components, so I feel like someone relitively new to soldering would be able to do this. The thing works like a dream now and the audio out is noticeably more crisp and "bass-y". Highly recommended for any DMG, modded or not! Keep your DMGs healthy!
