This cap kit for the Game Gear contains all parts necessary to replace the electrolytic capacitors of any VA1 model Game Gear.
Please open your Game Gear to determine the correct cap kit - product photo is not indicative of revision.
All caps are included for the:
- Main PCB
- Sound PCB
- Power PCB
This kit replaces surface mount with radial lead capacitors
If you have a really early Japanese VA1 with sound PCB 837-7400-01 please let us know and we will send caps that better fit your unusual sound PCB.
Some replacement caps may have higher voltage ratings than the original parts (e.g. 100uF 10v instead of 100uF 6.3v)
For capacitor lists and maps, please see our Game Gear Wiki page.
For easier installation of SMD-type Audio PCB caps with a soldering iron, the plastic spacer on the bottom of the cap can be clipped off, giving extra space to fit the soldering iron & solder.
