Game Gear Mainboard 315-5535 v1.7
This is a brand-new manufactured replacement mainboard for your Sega Game Gear, using all new components. This board makes it possible to repair your VA1 model Game Gear which suffers from PCB damage caused by leaking capacitors or batteries.
 
Please watch the video from Macho Nacho, he goes over all details of this board: https://youtu.be/tgnbuYgp_oI

The board has been reverse engineered from a Sega Game Gear VA1 model, better known as the single ASIC variant. Since I am not able to source new ASIC chips, cartridge connectors and expansion port connections, you need to supply these parts from one of your broken boards. TV-tuner is not supported - this is limited due to the current available LCD kits.

Installation is done at your own risk. I do not take responsibility for damage resulting from installation. Experienced soldering skill is needed – do no buy this kit if you do not know how to solder fine pitch SMD chips.

Before installation, please join the BennVenn Discord via https://discord.gg/f8AbftjEMs and look for the #game-gear-mainboard-kit channel!

Recommended tools are:

  • Soldering iron with 1-1.5mm chisel or gull-wing tip
  • Hot air rework station
  • Desoldering gun or pump

Assembled kit includes
  • All SMD parts assembled on mainboard - except for ASIC
