  • Test the kit before installation! Once the display is mounted with the included double-sided foam tape, it cannot be safely removed. We ask that you test the kit by hooking it up before removing the screen protector and before mounting the display using the foam tape.



    • Test before installation! When you receive a backlight/LCD kit, you should perform a dry run before installing to assure that nothing has been damaged in transit. A dry run or test fit means the kit is not installed in the shell. This includes the use of adhesives, brackets, and any performed soldering. All ribbon cables should have no bends or creases in them. If you are unsure how to perform a dry run, please contact our support team and we will be happy to help. Backlight kits that have been installed are not eligible for replacement or return.

    • LCD may break if put under too much pressure or dropped. Please exercise extreme caution when installing.

    Works great

    It works great i didnt even bother to wire up the optional adjustible brightness

    Very pleased.

    The options are endless here. Everything was packaged well and love this website. Will be purchasing more soon.

    Great Product and Service

    I've become a rather skeptical online buyer and frequently stick to the big box websites, but the price was too good to pass up. Everything was nicely packaged and arrived on time in good condition. I as well got several emails with links to guides on how to properly install the mod that were all helpful as well. I've had the screen installed in my gameboy advance for over a week now and it looks absolutely amazing. Especially compared to the original screen. If you regularly game on your gameboy or plan to I cannot recommend this mod enough.

    Great quality screen

    Really nice screen quality! Easy enough to install, although the brightness controls are a bit fiddly if you choose to implement them, and you're not that used to soldering.


    I ordered two of these screens. One appeared to work fine for my dry test until I buttoned it up. Even though I used the insulating tape that came with the kit I assumed it was shorting out somehow because the screen was pixelated and intermitted. After taking it back apart and using electrical tape to ensure nothing was shorting put it back together very loosely and the screen never lit up again. Not sure how or what went wrong, but I would be extremely careful buying and installing because you will not get your money back if you completely installed the screen. The other screen worked perfectly fine. I am just iffy about buying a replacement to the faulty one considering the price.

    Works great! Just be gentle.

    Screen worked great and looked just as good. I wanted to reopen my GBA after installing it to adjust the positioning of the screen but once it's stuck in place, it's there for good. The screen is too thin to withstand even the slightest amount of pressure on it.

    This is no fault of the screen of course, I just don't want anyone to make the same mistake I did. And if you do, you can get a replacement screen by it's self for cheap. Don't re-buy this kit if only the screen is broke.
