Might need a new headphone jack due to rough handling or a new volume pot. try plugging in headphones and wriggling them gently to see if you get sound, if that does not work try fiddling the volume knob, whichever gives a burst of sound will show you which needs to be replaced.

How to fix a stuck button on game gear

This is an easy fix. Open the Game Gear by removing the back panel. Take off the front panel, and the buttons and pads will come up. Remove the pads and buttons and clean the pads, buttons with alcohol, to remove the dirt and gunk around the buttons and pads . When finished replace the cover. Test the system. If the pads do not respond to the game, the pads may be worn down and may need replacing. There is a website called Ifixit that has the parts for the Game Gear. Go to to get the parts. Or go to for help. Also call 1-800-872-7342. This is the number for SEGA . Hope this information helps.

I just bouggt a sega saturn and it works perfectly other then whenever i go to open the drive door it doesnt open all the way it has a little catxh in it and if i use my hand i can open it all the way, and...

To fix this you have to remove 4-6 screws to take off the top case. The mechanism that opens the CD draw is a mixture of a spring and a gear mech and is attached to the top lid. You will have to pull to pieces and clean it. Hopefully it is just some dirt or grease in the gear mechanism that is stopping it from gliding open. If it is a broken tooth on the gear you have to find another Sega Saturn to fix this. It may also be a broken spring, if it is a spring another may be harvested from any unit that is a top loading CD and rigged in.

I have a sega Game gear which my nephew just found in our attic. No batteries in it, put new batteries in it worked perfectly for about an hour then the screen just went white and lines appear on it now...

Do a search on the net for Game Gear display repair. There is even videos on YouTube that show how to make the repair.

I would suspect it it the capacitors that have failed. The display, and the sound issues are easily repaird by installing new caps. Seek someone who is good at soldering small parts on a circuit board. The cost of the parts should be under $10.
These are common issues with the GG, so if you decide not to have it repaired, there are still those of us out there that would buy your unit to repair.
Good luck.

How to fix the sound on a sega game gear 2110. everything else is working fine but the the sound is shot.

Hi Jeremy,
This is an easy repair, if you are used to working with a 15 watt solderin iron, and have a little experience with solderin small parts.
The sound board needs new capacitors, it is a common failure. I believe there are 6 of them, and the cost should be under $10.

This repair works well, but the capacitors that are in the display secton can go out too, at a later time. If you get to the oint where you must tilt the display at an angle to view, the caps are probably failing. Again, it is a matter of just replacing the caps.
Here are two videos that detail the repairs.
Good luck!

Sega Game Gear

try adjusting the brightness knob on the system. i once had that same problem with mine. The ccfl tube (the main battery drain problem in most portables) might be burnt out or something. You can replace it with LED's i think.
