Game Gear Logic Board Damage. Fixable or recycling?
Hey everyone. I'm attempting to restore my old game gear. When I opened the system it became instantly clear as to why it had died in the first place. One, or a few, of the old capacitors had leaked and corroded in a small section of the logic board. I was able to get the majority of the material off the board by wiping it away with Qtips. However, in the process two small pieces fell off the board. C48 and Q3 are the pieces that fell off. I was being extremely careful not to damage anything and the slightest touch quickly removed them. Q3 was completely covered in dried up cap fluid and took quite some time to get the solder points to where they are in this picture. I haven't started cleaning the C48 solder point yet. Does anyone know if this is fixable? If so, does anyone know where I can get replacement parts for this board? I have no idea what these are called. I can say that the piece that goes on Q3 has the symbol XL 36 (same chip down and to the left of the yellow cap in the top left corner). No symbols are readable on the tiny piece that came off C48. R40 and R39 on the board will probably need to be replaced also just by looking at it. That's if this can be fixed. Thanks for your assistance!
