Hopefully the first in a series on how this recapping project goes
I got a couple of Sega Game Gears in a auction a while back, sold as not working. This is a fairly common experience as the GG's have terrible caps which tend to leak and go bad. Luckily the fix is a fairly straight forward recapping and then you should be good to go.

Replacement soldered on, Optiboot v6 flashed on, good as new! (even better actually as I can now upload at 115200!) #Arduino #nano #win

Lol :-) yeah. Might be a bit problematic with the plethora of languages we have.

Recapping this sucked more than I expected. I'm still not sure if it a) works or b) is actually a 48k model despite the RAM being there. Tomorrow is composite mod and switch on time. #nervous #magicsmoke

Nasty solder bridge to check for a faulty diode on a cheap and nasty Chinese Nano clone. If your board starts doing odd things, measure your 5V pin and if it's around 2V its highly likely that the diode has popped. #Arduino #nano #hack

Seems the diodes are really cheap and nasty. I bought a couple of replacements and just solder on a new one when they pop. Couple of cents a go so definitely worth it!
