Finished fixing my old Sega Game Gear.
Information and photos in the project page, link here:
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.
New Project to work on alongside the Naomi Universal Cabinet restoration.
Just received a Netboot Dimm module. Been looking for this for a while now.
This will allow the Naomi to boot game data from a network computer. My plan is to use a Raspberry Pi to transfer data.
Still need a few more parts:
- Decrypted security key for the Dimm
- Naomi BIOS compatible with the DIMM
- Raspberry Pi and LCD display for data loading
I’m also going to do a battery capacitor replacement on the motherboard first, as they leak over time eventually killing the board.
