Game gear not read games
Post Posted: Mon Apr 06, 2020 3:58 pm
Hello everybody and nice to meet too. I'm reading your forum for a long time and i wanted to asked for your help.

I have two game gears and both have the same issue. They are power on but they don't boot any game cartridge. Some times a buzzy noise coming from the speaker and that's all. All the capacitors have been changed and the cartridge slot has been cleaned. The board is va0 version (837-7996)

Does anyone had that issue before?

Thank you,

I have a couple like that. Sometimes the capacitors just do their damage and its hard to know what yo do to save them :(

Please don't throw them away though. If you need to find them a home, I'll take them off your hands. The parts are still nice to have for repairing other units.
