Upgrade your Game Boy Pocket (GBP) with this Game Boy Pocket IPS LCD Backlight Kit. IPS LCD's  are characterized as having the best color and viewing angles available today. Take your old and outdated reflective pocket display to a bright and colorful upgrade your 10 year old self could only dream of.

FEATURES:

  • Genuine Funny Playing product
  • Built-in 36 retro color combination
  • Contrast wheel brightness function
  • 5 second press on touch sensor changes into pixel mode. 3 second press goes back to previous color option.
  • 11% larger than the original LCD (Glass screen sold separately)
  • Overall power consumption between 0.3 - 0.8W
  • Accurate aspect ratio
  • Toggle between brightness options through contrast wheel.
  • Since GBP USES two AAA batteries, the maximum capacity we can find is at 1100mWh. According to our repeated tests, it ran the original cartridge at normal brightness indoors for about 3 hours.
  • It is recommended to use an electronic cleaner to handle your power switch and gray scale adjustment buttons. This makes the LCD brightness adjustment smoother to use.
  • Case modification and soldering required.

INCLUDED:

  • 1 x Q5 IPS LCD
  • 1 x PCB ribbon cable with attached touch sensor
  • 1 x Adhesive
  • 1 x Touch sensor ribbon
  • 1 x Wire

DOCUMENTATION:

NOTES:

  • This kit has a touch sensor already attached on the black ribbon cable. You may use this one by simply folding into the front or back of the shell.
  • You may also use the separate included touch sensor ribbon and solder it onto the gold pad on the front of the black ribbon cables touch sensor (see media for photo highlighting this pad). You can either solder the separate touch sensor directly to the pad or install along with a wire to customize touch sensor placement.
  • After installation, if it is noted that your touch sensor is overly sensitive or is cycling, please see this article for assistance. 

    WARNINGS:

    • 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.

      Love it!

      Easy install (especially with a Funny Playing case) with a beautiful result. Simple to use controls for the pallets and "pixel mode". Would recommend.

      The screen is great!

      I love how easy it was to install the screen. I'd say the difficult part was adjusting the shell to fit the screen correctly, but everything else was very simple. It's nice to have a crisp clear screen to play my Game Boy Pocket again. The back light being adjustable with the contrast is wonderful.
