This cap kit for the Game Gear contains all parts necessary to replace the electrolytic capacitors of any VA4 model Game Gear.  All caps are included for the:

  • Main PCB 837-9538 or 837-9538-01
  • Sound PCB
  • Power PCB standard or VA4 837-9538

This kit replaces surface mount with radial lead capacitors


Installation Notes:

Two different size of the 100uF caps may be provided.  The shorter, thicker caps are for the Power Board, and the thinner, longer caps are for the Main Board.  Different sizes are provided to ensure that the case fits back together without obstruction.

Some replacement caps may have higher voltage ratings than the original parts (e.g. 100uF 10v instead of 100uF 6.3v)

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.

For capacitor lists and maps, please see our Game Gear Wiki page.
