Restoring a GameBoy Cartridge with Corrosion (TMNT Fall of the Foot Clan)


In this video, I take a worn out game cartridge and restore it by removing the corrosion on the front of the PCB, re-flowing solder onto the PCB chip pins, and placing the game PCB in a new cartridge shell with a new sticker. I apologize if my right thumb is a distraction in the video. It’s a bad stress habit.
