    Neo Geo MVS missing SMD capacitor help

    Hey guys! I just recently picked up a Neo-Geo MVS MV1-AX and a 161 in 1 multicart on Ebay and have been loving it. However I've been getting random restarts so I inspected the board and found that one of the SMD capacitors was missing. It looks like 0805 size but I was wondering if any of you might know the nf ratings on these. I know the Multicart uses 0805 100nf. Would it be safe to assume that is what the board uses too? Thanks!https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net...0e&oe=59B8BB36https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net...48&oe=59B8BE3C

    I had a similar situation with the broken off ceramic caps, except mine was not restarting. I just filled in the spaces in with 0.1uf ceramic caps.

    I used a fluke multimeter clone to measure, removed the SMD cap from the board for a better measurement and the component measured a few times AVG is about 110.0 ~ 100.0 nF for PC42 on a MV-1AX board like yours. Hope this helps. Id say it would be safe to go with 100 nF
