    • Seven Phillips screws

    • One 4.5 mm Gamebit screw

    It says remove 7 Philips screws, the picture shows 6 but one is incorrect.

    The thread below the label has no screw, but there is another one in the other battery compartment.

    The hole below the label is for a security bolt when stores put them on display.

    The screw hole in the bottom center is for the PowerBack. Also there are not 7 screws there are only 6

    There is a third cable on the right side of the top half in this picture which is the speaker. Unplug that too.

    There are two more screws at the top just to the left and right of the screen you can see clearly in this photo (the ones on the green PCB, not the ones on the screen support). Unscrew those too. All the screws have a white circle printed around them.

    There is no circular black fastener. It's the brightness control wheel and it's attached to the board.

    • Small plastic buttons may fall off during this process, save them in a container or a place where they could be found later on.

any one know where to get a new display that wont bleed me dry?

isaiah bellamy (masta ike) - Antwort

Due to the nature a Game Gear screen attaches, a ribbon directly soldered to the mainboard, replacing it requires a soldering iron and some fairly advanced technique.

This guide, titled “Sega Game Gear Screen Replacement”, only takes us to the point you remove the ribbon. There is much work left.

Anthony Bessel - Antwort

so, uh, is there a more comprehensive version somewhere?

Does the screen get fixed at the end?

SadlySadly, in step 7 you missed a screw location

talliesine - Antwort

there’s actually 2 more screws, one above the transformer and one on the left of the EXT port. this guide is sooooo incomplete, it’s a shame.

Walter Comunello -

I’d like to see a capacitor replacement guide, I’m in the process of doing my early model Game Gear.

Also, how about a screen LCD upgrade guide?

They make modern LCD’s for these that eliminate the fluorescent bulbs that suck the batteries dry in a hurry. Lol

Can’t wait to get mine back up and running after several caps started to leak, video was non-existent and sound was very low and poor.
