I have been wanting to mod my Gameboys for some times now. I decided to finally make the jump! I knew the screens are nice but until you turn it on in person the pictures and videos don’t do it justice. I will be getting another screen for another build soon!
Attached are images of the mod and a before/after video.
The laminated Q5 display showed up very quickly, well packaged, and in perfect working condition. Installation was quick and straightforward. Will definitely be buying again for future builds. You can trust Handheld Legend with all of your modding needs!!
It works and looks great but the included power wire could have been slightly longer to route around display connector so case doesn't pinch it
Works great, but the touch sensor can be hit-and-miss because the ribbon is very sensitive to repeated bending. From what I can tell, this has been improved in the latest revision of the cable, but testing the touch sensor through the shell can't hurt.
This FunnyPlaying Q5 display for the gameboy color is absolutely beautiful looking! Backlight is super bright and adjustable. Installation was fairly easy. Though, the install guide on Hand Held Legend's Wiki wasn't updated to reflect changes made to this latest display kit, mainly in regards to the touch sensor instructions. I did not need to solder anything for touch to work, it is built into the ribbon cable on this model. Color and picture look fantastic. I love that the soapy size is bigger than the original screen. I bought a FunnyPlaying shell made for this display; which, made installation extremely easy and doesn't require any modification to the shell. Definitely worth every penny!
