 If the game works but the graphics is turning bad then the Suzy is the chip gone bad. Finding a new Suzy chip is pretty expensive. Best Electronics is your best bet for a replacement Suzy. If the game works but the graphics is turning bad then the Suzy is the chip gone bad. Finding a new Suzy chip is pretty expensive.

 +=== Unit not starting ===
 +Frequent causes for problems in Lynx are the aging components. The easiest way is to buy the power supply replacement and the capacitor replacement packs from console 5. This contains transistors, a zener, a MOSFET, a resistor to boost the 5V voltage and all the electrolytic caps that have dried up during the 30+ years since the unit was manufactored. Changing all these takes a few hours but with a little luck that is all you need to do.

 +The second test worth doing is to connect +5V from a lab-supply to the pins of the largest cap 470uF. If the Lynx does not start up now you have a more serious problem.
