A Game Boy Backlight display mod from Hand-Held Legend is an easy to use LED panel that fits behind the original Game Boy LCD to light up the screen from behind. Some modification to the console is required although its basic enough for any beginner.

Good for those who want to keep the original feel of the oem screen, but still want to play in the dark. The gradual dimming of the panel and the faint, ghosting lines on the screen are things you cant avoid, and the teal backlight does get greener as the batteries weaken. Despite that being said, it still looks beautiful. When bivertless, the screen looks very similar to the oem screen is bright lighting conditions because the backlight panel acts as a reflector, which is a nice touch. Overall, great budget mod!
Really simple solder and this just works. Gives me a nice and bright screen. Excellent upgrade.
2 things. One if you are looking at this mod, consider getting the bivert module now too to make the screen really clear. Second, if you're working with an old DMG like we all are, be extremely careful about the ribbon on the inside. I screwed up my screen because the ribbon on the inside tying to the board was extremely brittle. Didn't realize it until it was too late. Be super careful.
Otherwise, the pictures don't do justice to how good this backlight works and looks.
First one came in faulty but they sent out another and it came out great! (Backlight with Bivert Chip)
