      OSD Issue

      After following the Q5 IPS LCD installation video step by step, I noticed that the OSD function kept popping up on the screen during game play every time I press the "A" button. After several on line searches of such issue, I did not find a possible fix or solution. Therefore, I had no choice but to disable the OSD function by desoldering the "A", "B" and "Select" wires from the PCB that was included with the purchased IPS kit. Without game play the OSD function work well. Right now the Q5 IPS LCD is operating in default mode with touch sensors functionality. NO OSD Functionality.

      Bad scanlines

      The screen is really not of good quality and terrible scanlines spoil the experience.

      Great screen! Easy to install but a little time consuming. I didn’t think I’d use the color options that much but I love them!

      Worth the money and the effort. Just be prepared and know what it takes to install.

      This kit was on sale for $50 when I got it, and after having installed it, I'd say that price is just about right. It is certainly not the easiest kit out there, and I would not recommend it to beginners, but the juice is worth the squeeze. The OSD and touch sensors make it a pleasure to use. One note, I also installed a power regulator, as I believe the GBP really needs it when it comes to these IPS screens. Overall happy with my purchase, and hope others here like it as well!

      Awesome kit for my favorite version of gb

      Worked and fit was great love playing my gbp again over my other modded consoles.
