PS: If you're wondering what JIS means, it's the Japanese Industry Standard screws. They are very similar to Phillips screwdriver bits, but have a larger angle and therefore don't bottom out in JIS screws, causing less slippage. Most Japanese retro consoles use JIS.



How to replace the battery in SEGA Master System carts?

  • Open it up with a Phillips Head Screwdriver
  • Desolder the original battery
  • Solder in the new CR2032 with tabs
