There are 2 additional screws to remove from the motherboard to the left and right of the cartridge port's shiny metal shield's screws on my Sega Game Gear with the RED GREEN and BLUE colors on the front.

Removing the plastic holding the speaker to the case may  permanently detach the speaker. The plastic at these three locations is melted to the plastic. Pry off with caution.

Recommendations for the prying off process? It looks like a soldering iron was taken to the points to loosen the plastic but I'm not sure

I found that poking around the orange/redish posts with a hobby knife worked really well. Poke a small hole where the black plastic meets the red plastic and continue doing this around the post. Once you have done that it might help to go around the post a second time pressing more firmly as to push the knife just a little further. Use your finger or plastic prying tool to pry up each side. I wouldn't recommend just taking a prying tool to each post without breaking the connection between the posts and the retaining plate as you will potentially break the plate that holds the speaker in place. This is very easy to do but it is time consuming if you're concerned with keeping everything in as close to "new" condition as possible.
