This cap kit for the Super Nintendo contains all parts necessary to replace the electrolytic capacitors (excluding RF module) of any non-SHVC model, including PCB revs:
This kit also includes the following additional caps:
- 1000uf / 25v leaded cap found in Super Famicom hardware.
- 470uf / 6.3v leaded cap to add across the ground / output terminals of the voltage regulator
While not required, adding these caps can improve performance with 3rd party power supplies or OEM supplies with many hours of use, as well as help to reduce the faint vertical line visible in some TV / monitor setups.
NOT compatible with the smaller, redesigned NES. For the SNN- Super NES units, the standard kit is required (see related items)
NOTE: SMD Capacitors require appropriate rework tools for easy installation.
If you are using an authentic Nintendo SNS-002 power transformer there is one additional 3300uF or 4700uF capacitor necessary for a full recap.
