In this video I install an LED backlight mod to a Sega Game Gear. This mod will easily double your battery life by eliminating the need for the power hungry CFL bulb. Installation isn’t very intuitive, I must say, but we’ll see how it holds up.

  1. Watching this a year later because Game Gear! The "get a Dremel" message seems to have long been affirmed, so I'm gonna say "please use a hobby knife/Exacto if you have one instead of a box cutter" because I winced when you tried to cut the plastic with it and it wasn't cooperating. Just the angle of the blade alone makes a hobby knife much easier to use going back and forth for cleaner cuts, and I'm pretty sure you can find handles that aren't the basic stick form.

  2. Just pausing at 28 mins to relay my thoughts on the backlight being mounted upside down potentially? Judging by the wire length and the way it sits with the bar at the top, wouldn't it be better off the other way up so the bar is out of the way of the gamebit screw? Also seems to me it'd look better with the bit where you can see individual light points at the bottom where it's facing away from you as you play.

  3. New to your channel, but I've watched quite a few videos in the past few days. One thing I noticed with this video is there were a couple times you did not sound confident whatsoever. I'm not saying this is bad at all, I'm actually thanking you for being so genuine. Those backlight kits are expensive, and game gears are a dime a dozen now, so I understand why you'd be nervous. Thanks for learning along with us.

  4. I know alcohol will work to remove glue, but wouldn't using a product like Goo-Gone be better? I've had to clean up glue residue from label printers at work, and it ate through the residue really quickly.

  5. Any thoughts on screen mod for these things like the McWill or the upcoming BennVenn screen replacement? I still have the Game Gear my parents bought me when I was a teen, it's peppered with stuck pixels, probably needs all the caps replaced too. The McWill looks incredible, but given I don't even use the GG anymore, it makes the price of the mod hard to swallow. The BennVenn will apparently be about half the cost.

  6. Hi, I made this mod and replaced so the mainboard caps. But the display still with weak. Not bright colors. But ow I can see (before replacing caps I barely see a little looking with a extremely angle). This is my first game gear.

  7. you could use some double sided tape to pin the backlight in place and the screen (once they are correctly calibrated). Or maybe putting the backlight upside down? With the wire side being down?
