I'm finally getting around to fixing my Atari Lynx consoles. This includes replacing all the old capacitors so that the screens and sound work again. There are capacitor lists available online, but I've not seen a compiled picking list, so decided to put one together, one for each of the Lynx 1 and Lynx 2 consoles.

You can just buy fully assembled capacitor kits on eBay already, but since I need a few more components, I'm probably going to be placing my order at RS Components.

Anyway, these are the picking lists:
 Lynx 1
4x 10uf 6.3v
3x 47uf 6.3v
1x 220uf 6.3v
1x 470uf 10v
2x 10uf 35v
1x 100uf 35v
2x 1uf 50v
2x 2.2uf 63v

 Lynx 2
4x 10uf 6.3v
4x 47uf 6.3v
2x 220uf 6.3v
1x 470uf 10v
2x 10uf 35v
1x 100uf 35v
4x 1uf 50v
2x 2.2uf 50v




I repaired my Lynx 2 now. You can read about that mini-project starting here: Atari Lynx repair - Part 1 - introduction and case disassembly.
