Introdução

Follow this guide if you need to replace the power supply of your Sega Saturn. Before you begin disassembling, I advise getting the detailed tools together, as the screws have bad plastic sockets, so having the Standoff screwdriver really helps get those rigid screws in and out. The toughest part of this guide will be finally removing the Power Supply Board, as the last thing holding it in place are pins directly from the motherboard. Breaking those can lead to replacing two parts of the Sega Saturn, and it doesn’t help that it takes a good amount of force to unplug the pins either… Just take your time on that step and this repair should be fine.

  5. Flip the device over so it rests right side up. Lift gently across the seam of the Sega Saturn. If parts get stuck, a light shake or prying with the iFixit opening tool should free it up. Do not use any brute force, as this can damage the case so it doesn't close again. Lift gently across the seam of the Sega Saturn.
