Nomad Progress

At last I’ve found an LCD that works with the Genesis/Nomad video signal.

The viewing angle is not as good as one of the other screens I’ve tested, but the contrast and pixel detail is very good. Unfortunately it doesn’t have a brightness adjuster, so I’ll have to change a resister value to increase the brightness as it looks a little too dark at times.

So far I can see it will make a big difference when installed.
After I get this done I’ll start on the battery mod.

Game Gear Fixing

Working on fixing the sound and screen problems on my Game Gears. All got the same capacitor issues.

Easy fix with a kit from ebay.

started by removing the old caps on the sound board. They’ve even started to swell. the ones on the mainboard are looking very bad, with leaking fluid around the plastic cap holders.
