The Retro Future does a Let's Refurb on a faulty gold Game Boy Pocket

We featured a Let’s Refurb from The Retro Future a while back and his craft has grown from strength to strength. Lately, he’s been tackling more complex fixes on Nintendo 2DS’s and 3DS’s but last week, he went back to an old classic.

The unit he got was a corroded Game Boy Pocket. The casing looked like it was being consumed by a sepia symbiote and the circuitry had succumbed to corrosion. The final result has some cleaning and adjustments is amazing. It resonated with me especially as I used to own a Game Boy Color with a special gold outer case. I’m tempted to try this out myself!
