Holiday console hardware repair. Today: Sega Pico with broken lightpen button. Not sure what’s wrong yet.

Seems like the problem is with the micro switch inside the pen. Getting the pen to open means removing a 30yr old sticker. Heatgun helps here.

Also facing a sprite garbling issue. Likely needs replacement capacitors.

Digging deeper. This may be the most modern photography of a Pico mainboard on the Internet :-)
