    You could just replace caps. That would be a cheap starting point. Otherwise maybe some video mods?

    I was mostly recommending it because the systems are cheap/worthless and none of the parts are too expensive either. I'm wanting to get the hang of this stuff so I can video mod a Cube and fix my Gamegear. Then maybe video mod my IFU as well actually.

    I want to "One-chip" an snes, Chip and VGA mod a dreamcast and a few random other things, I guess replacing caps would be a good place to start.

    If you just want to get comfortable with an iron, i recommend buying an old piece of tech at the thrift and just messing around with that. Work on desoldering and soldering stuff for an hour or so and then try a project.

    PS1's need recapped?

    It takes some time to do. I spent a few hours each on my GG & SCD. But, that was being rather careful and cleaning as I went.
    ** I feel comfortable doing the recaps. Easy enough. But I'm good with repairing things. So if you're a klutz you might take more time to practice and make sure you're doing ok.

    Yes the snes comes with two controllers probably. Didn't realize I've accumulated so many over the last few years

    I don't think so typically, just a cheap way to practice.

    No matter how good the new capacitors are on the Game Gear, the screen still looks like crap

    I always wanted to do the TV out mod, but no one would do it for me! Then I don't have to look at that ugly screen.

    I'd probably be willing if it's not too hard looking.
