Add a modern IPS LCD to your original Game Boy DMG with this Game Boy DMG Q5 Retro Pixel IPS LCD Kit from FUNNYPLAYING.




To use brightness, color, and Retro Pixel features on contrast wheel:

  • Cycle normally for brightness
  • Short press (one to two seconds) then cycle for color
  • Long press (five seconds) to change Pixel modes

Please disregard the portion of the ribbon cable with the touch sensor (gently tuck into top of shell) and points on cable marked "tch" and 'pwr" as they provide no function.


  • 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.

Pure Awesome

Love the new screen. Overall it was super easy to do too. I would suggest buying a bracket to make things easier. The ribbon cable was the only scary part for me but it was more durable than I thought (still be careful though). YouTube video placeholder
So easy and so worth it!

I was shocked at how easy this upgrade was, I even got the crystal clear case and some buttons to match, not at all let down this was so cool. I show my friends what I did and they're all equally impressed to see the Dot Matrix Gameboy look sooo good!

This was my first time trying anything like this, the videos explained everything, and the support team answered my questions quickly and with detail.

Thanks guys for a great product!!!!

Love the Pixels

The pixel mode for this looks so nice. Used this in a Q5 Shell, so I didn't need to do any chopping. Like a lot of others said, it should come with that aligning bracket instead of buying it seperately. HHL was out of stock on brackets when I got this, so I had to get it somewhere else. I think aligning the screen without it would be a pain. And maybe a business card size cheat sheet for all the different pixel and color modes would be cool too.

I do like the button pads on the new Q5 compared to the old RIPS V3, which always seemed like I had to push way too hard. Using prestige silicon pads and buttons, it plays just right.

Awesome screen

Repaired an old damaged dmg screen with this replacement and was super happy. Installation was easy and the screen has many color and pixel options. This is my favorite screen to use for dmg repairs
