    I was just wondering if I could pick your expert brain – I bought a second hand game gear that would not power on (well it would, but only for about a second, before switching back off again) with the idea that I would replace the capacitors on it and that would solve the problem. Well, unfortunately the problem remains 🙁 I only replaced the capacitors on the main board, so I’ve decided to try and get a replacement power board to see if that fixes the issue.

    If replacing the capacitors doesn’t work, and switching for a new power board also does nothing, is there anything you can think of that I might try? Would faulty capacitors on the sound board be causing this effect?

    Thanks – sorry this isn’t related to your own store, I just thought you might be able to offer some sage advice!
