    DOCUMENTATION:

    WARNINGS:

    • You do not need to purchase a separate lens. Removing pre-adhered lens from LCD can result in damage to the LCD and will void product warranty. If you received an extra lens in your order, this was likely a included plastic lens with a shell and should NOT be placed on top of the pre-adhered lens.
    • 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 screen

    Screen is great quality, ribbon cable was not as sensitive or flimsy as others. Easy solder points for brightness control. The only thing to note is the screen is much thinner than OEM ones so you will need some kind of backing foam etc to ensure it doesn’t rattle in the shell. That is regardless if you use your OEM shell or a precut IPS ready shell. Would buy again, no questions asked.

    Rough installation

    Installing the screen was a bit of an hassle, especially the ribbon cable through the hinge. Maybe have a video just focusing on that. Also I believe in the walkthrough video they have the black side of the ribbon cable up that plugs into the screen. It only worked the opposite way for me. The screen also seems a little lose in the case, not sure if I missed something or not. That's being said the screen is very bright and vibrant, so it was worth it.

    Thanks for your feedback! We will look into making a video on how to weave the ribbon cables through the shell properly for SP. We will also look into the ribbon orientation mentioned. For the looseness issue, we list this on the product page under 'Notes' - 'Consider purchasing a foam backing to keep this kit in place if you do not have your original foam from your console.'

    Beautiful!

    Looks way better than the 001 screen version. I'm absolutely in love modding my own gba. It's turning out beautifully well!
