CD32 recap + bad video output

CD32 came in for recap and problem with video output.

Video output was very bad.

Problem was U36 (HC4066), output voltages on pin 2,4 & 8 were around ~200mV. I guess electrolyte has entered the IC housing through the pins and damaged the IC from inside, replace it and the video output was excellent again. Also replaced U12 (CXA1145), pins also corroded by electrolyte from leaking capacitors.

Result after replacing U36
