Received today from France this mint Metamorphic Force (Japan version)

I have been told by the owner that sound was missing.This was confirmed once powered the board up, it was mute:

The board uses the ‘infamous’ ‘054986A’ hybrid audio module which in this case showed sign of corrosion due to capacitors leakage:

Insted to try to repair it I decided, in agreement with owner, to use a reproduction of mine wich means a better reliability and lifespan:

I removed the old module and installed some 1.778mm female machined pin headers:

Lastly fitted the reproduction:

Sound was back loud and clear.End of today job.
