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.
This kit comes with all the capacitors needed to fix most versions of your Game Gear:
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.
Installation instructions can be found for this kit below:

Replace all 10uF and 4.7uF capacitors with 10uF surface mount capacitors.
NOTE: This kit now comes with 1000uF instead of 820uF.

Works great had extra to use on another project.
Amazing capacitors restored my game gear no problem. Easy to install with tweezers and a solder iron.
I was very pleased with the packaging and accurate labeling of these ceramic capacitors. They said it up very nicely, and was rather easy to install. I look forward to doing business with you guys in the near future! Thank you for your dedication to this industry. Keep up the good work :-)
Complete kit. Tutorial was easy to follow. Will continue to order whenever I source more GameGear.
Worked like a charm. Make sure to not a very high temperature because the small fuses will blow away.
