Hi everyone,

I put new capacitors in a Game Gear and noticed that C43 has a pulled up positive terminal solder pad. Does anyone know, or can anyone help me to figure out where to solder a wire from the positive leg of the capacitor to get it working? Im new to following traces and Im not quite sure how to figure it out. Thanks!

Shoot a picture of the area in question. I don't have a GG in front of me to look and I don't believe I have the schems for one on file either. But I can usually tell from a good pic in many cases.

Thanks for the reply! I can't get a good picture, so I found the area from another post. The positive leg of C43 is the only one I notice that has a lifted pad. Thanks for your help!

Okay, in looking at that pic it looks like the + leg of C43 is also attached to the right side of R29 just above it and also the left side of R28.
