Installed this in a GBC and it works flawlessly! I do recommend using high temp tape rather than the included film to prevent shorts though. Not that it’s a high temp issue, it’s just easier to cover the board. You have to make sure your clearances are good. It’s a tight fit but if you buy the printed brackets, it works great! The touch contacts to change device modes work great! I did not solder the other features with the Select A/B options because I did not need those features. I highly recommend this kit!
I have a hard time needing to process the case.
After completion, you will be impressed.
I really like the LCD screen on my GBC. However I bought the bracket with it and when I installed it the screen would not show a picture. It was only after I removed the bracket the LCD turned on normally. Seems there was too much pressure in between the case and the LCD with the bracket to not show a picture.
Nit picking aside, I figured it out and I'm happy with it.
Although its close to the same size as the funnyplaying, it still needs a little work on the shell if you buy the pretrimmed one. Also need to be mindful of and use the provided insulation film. Since one of the touch sensors ends up stickered to the shell you will have to be mindful that you will not be able to fully remove it again. And while the color changing option is useless for GBC games it makes playing OG GB games on the color a bit more authentic.
Part works great and the screen is super clear
Definitely a bit more involved than my other LCD upgrades but well worth it! Glad I watched a video before doing it, prepping the PCB was important as to not damage the screen, but the finished product is an absolute delight. The facelift was well overdue on this little treasure. This was a fun little project!
