Admin, commission work
After a very busy couple of months, I’m back to normal operations and able to accept repair and recap jobs again if needed.

Just got out of a box in a cupboard the Game Gear I bought my boys from new way back when it first came out I believe. Got the TV tuner, rechargeable battery pack, nice case for it all to fit in and have a big selection of games. Upon putting 6 new AA batteries in and turning it on, the screen lit up for a second and then immediately switched off. Tried again but nothing the second time. Just plugged in battery pack to recharge and try again but I have read the capacitors tend to die on the old GG.
Do you think this is the problem? Would changing them fix the issue? If so, would you kindly let me know what you charge to do the repair, as not sure I would have the patience for all that soldering and de-soldering. Many thanks, Brian
Yes sure I can recap a Game Gear. It’s a common problem with the capacitors and affects them all eventually.
Send me an email through my contact page first and we can get it arranged.
