This cap kit for the PAL Super Nintendo contains all parts necessary to replace the electrolytic capacitors (excluding RF module) in the following PCB revs:
Includes a bipolar capacitor for C59. SNSP-CPU-01 units have a standard polarized capacitor which should be converted to bipolar.
This kit also includes the following additional cap:
- 470uf / 6.3v cap to add across the ground / output terminals of the voltage regulator
While not required, adding this cap 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.
This kit replaces some surface mount with radial lead capacitors. A direct replacement Surface mount kit is also available.
