We hand-restore old consoles and upgrade them with modern tech
Got an original Game Gear you want to have restored and repaired? Then this service is for you.
Send us your original Game Gear and we will restore it and upgrade it to your desired specifications.
As well as repair and PCB restoration, you can optionally upgrade many components such as:
We take your original Game Gear and start by taking it apart fully. We clean the PCB, do a full recap on the power, audio and main board, replace any broken or worn components such as power regulator ICs or transistors, and do a full hardware test to confirm good working order is restored.
Often Game Gears original screens die even after repairing the main boards and recapping. If that is the case, we can offer a screen upgrade. It is highly recommended to have the backlit LCD screen upgrade as part of the service, otherwise even after repair you could be left with a Game Gear that starts playing games with sound but no screen.
The service includes repair of all common faults free of charge including:
Any issues that are outside of the standard repair can also be repaired. In which case we will contact you if we identify such issues and let you know the price of repair.
Next, we add your customized upgrades such as a new screen protector and upgraded screen.
Once you have placed your order, package up and send us your console (without batteries) to the following address:
RetroSix156 Bagnall RoadStoke on TrentST2 7LW
Then send us any tracking information along with your order number to email@example.com and we will let you know once we receive your console.
Once we get it, turn-around time is typically 48-72 hours, then we send the item back by the delivery method you specified during checkout.
Any questions or details contact us via the live chat or email.
So many things these days are mass produced, not designed to last, and make as cheap as possible for as much money as possible. We started RetroSix not as a mass market business. We are aiming at the small, limited quantity, but hand-build and restored market.
All work, restoration, modifications, improvements and so on are done in the UK, in-house by hand and all attention to detail and care is taken for every order. You can be assured that your order has been inspected not only by a real person but someone who knows about and is excited by gaming and retro, and no sub-par product leaves our doors.
In 2020 we partnered with Hand Held Legend in the USA. I believe partnering with other likeminded companies is a great way to help each other out and ultimately make products that are better for the end consumer. Check them out at https://handheldlegend.com
RetroSix is a small team of people who have been in the gaming industry and retail business since 2013, and sold consoles, controllers and even designed our own controllers and consoles.
Putting that expertise to good use, we decided to start RetroSix; a small team of people passionate about retro gaming, and restoring original consoles to like-new, adding our own twist and style to them and in general bringing a modern twist to retro.
Experience the nostalgia without the limitations of old and outdated hardware.
