Every now and then we see a console that is outside the regular scope of repairs we offer.  More common repairs include things like HDMI port replacements, maybe a little bit of nerd rage, but this one was a little bit different.  Playing vids under the soft flicker of candle light sounds like a great idea for date night… but not so much when the candle is ON the xbox one.  The candle wax melted down through the fan vents and coated the entire APU and surrounding ram chips.  Thankfully wax isn’t conductive so no permanent damage was caused! WHEW!

Game Gear Mods and Upgrades!

posted in: Our Repair Notes | 2

Game Gear Mods and Upgrades are here at VideogameRepairs!  Two of the most popular services we offer include the full cap kit installation and the McWill LCD replacement screen installation.  The original surface mounted caps inside these units start to fail and our replacement caps bring new life to your handhelds.  Barely audible sound will turn back into the clear crisp stereo sound you had back in the 90’s.  The video capacitors that get replaced will tune your picture into a much more vivid full spectrum display.
