This cap kit for the Super Nintendo contains all parts necessary to replace the electrolytic capacitors of any non-SHVC model (excluding RF module), including PCB revs:
- SNN-CPU (Smaller, redesigned SNES. We offer a more suitable kit for the SNES Jr., see the related items)
These console versions do not have a removable sound module.
This kit also includes the following additional caps:
- 1000uf / 25v cap found in Super Famicom hardware.
- 470uf / 6.3v 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.
If you are using an authentic Nintendo SNS-002 power transformer there is one additional 3300uF or 4700uF capacitor necessary for a full recap.
This kit replaces some surface mount with radial lead capacitors. A direct-replacement SMD cap kit is also available, see related products for more info!
