My apologies for not posting sooner.  But here you go!  It is to the point of being ready for the Screen to be dropped in!

We started with a mess created by someone (nameless) using ceramic capacitors to replace all the electrolytics, well that's a no no when you have low frequencies as they spike and you get popping in the audio and dim video!!

The pads for the capacitors weren't even cleand, some didn't really make much of a connection.  The repair was just a quick lets make a buck and on to the next crappy repair!

Even the glass screen will have to be redone because the old sticky tape/glue is still under the original and is protruding into the game gear!!  Who does this!!

Ok, got back on this from doing my on call service today... :D

She's wired and ready for the initial display test.  If she works, they we wire up the vga and try that!
