My Japanese Famicom's GPU processor is fried should I have it repaired or import a new one?

You might be better off just buying a new one rather than endure the hassle of getting a system repaired (that's never worked for me personally, they end up conking out shortly after being "repaired"). A quick search through eBay says they shouldn't be too expensive compared to getting one fixed.

Alternatively, you could buy one of those clone systems (which are perfectly legal, by the way) but I'm not sure about compatibility. There are some really interesting ones with support for multiple systems and regions.
