Game Gear Issue

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

I bought a Game Gear today, and well, something's up with it. all the games are my old PAL ones but the system is NTSC. I've heard that the Game Gear is region free, but mine's is having a issue, the screen is squished and multiplyed 5 times. Also, whenever I turn it on, the whole screen is a load of black and white lines before the multiplied image fades in, almost like an analogue TV tuning into a weak signal.

​Is this a region lock system I didn't know about or is the GG busted?

 

Any help would be appreciated

when in doubt, replace caps

 

I bought it with the caps already replaced, the motherboard is good as new

It is not region problem, it could be the cap kit was screwed up or a solder broke during shipment

I bought it in a classic gaming store and brought it home myself, as far as I know it wasn't damaged

Take it back to the store. They should have tested it.
