    • After installation, if it is noted that your touch sensor is overly sensitive or is cycling, please see this article for assistance.


    • 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.

    Great service and support. Product is fantastic.


    Easy install, looks good.

    Great screen for a first time modder

    This was my first time ever modding a console. Overall, the screen works great! It leans slightly to the left in the shell I have (SKU GBC1155), but I'm still able to see the whole screen. There was a bit of confusion with the instructions provided on the site, as there is a bit of adhesive provided with the screen, but the instructions only mention 1/3 of them.

    Other than that, the screen has 8 different color pallets to select from, and 9 (not 10 as stated on the items page) brightness's to select from. Games look amazing on it! So bright and colorful, it's like a whole new experience.

    The instructions on site could be updated, but overall, great screen for first timers!
