Introduction

Although the Sega Game Gear TV Tuner is long outdated, it’s still a pretty cool retro handheld console attachment. In the 90’s, before the era of digital television, all you needed was a Game Gear with Tuner attached and you had your very first handheld console with the ability to “stream” video. With a A/V input built in you can still use it, with HD antenna attached, to watch television or even do some outrageously silly stuff like play Xbox 1/PS4 using your Sega Game Gear as a TV. Just remember to bring batteries.

  1. Remove PH1 screw and lift up on the antenna to remove it This can be done with a PH0 screwdriver but I prefer not to risk stripping the screw

  3. When removing the front shell be careful not to lose the frequency switch button located on top of the device If it makes your repair easier you can separate the two PCBs by gently pulling the ribbon out of its connector. This is a friction fit cable

does anybody know what the ribbon cables pinout is? I would love to know, so I can hook up some video-in to the tv tuner board, since my good guess is, that the upper part is just transporting or converting the signal it gets from its receiver to a mere video-in signal with LandR audio, since you can also hook up video-in to the tv tuner on the jack. and my other wild guess is, that the board the actual receiver is hooked up to splits up the signal into 8-bit chunks the game gear itself can understand. Please feel free to correct me and give more info, i NEED the pinout, since i got no tools at home to check what the ribbon cable actually is cooking.
