A Game Boy Backlight display mod from Hand-Held Legend is an easy to use LED panel that fits behind the original Game Boy LCD to light up the screen from behind. Some modification to the console is required although its basic enough for any beginner.

Currently using 1.5V rechargable lithium batteries to maintain constant voltage and the backlight is bright with good tone. The white works well under different lighting conditions. The nonuniform lit area is at the bottom of the screen but doesn't impact gameplay. I did trap a hair behind the lens and the screen is slightly offset, so I'll have to open it back up and adjust it slightly. Just take care while removing the reflective backing on the original LCD and you'll have a nice mod when you're done! The only additional thing I may do is snip a lead on OEM red LED since it's annoyingly bright and should extend the battery life. The LED doesn't go dim before shutdown with these batteries so it isn't a status light anymore.
Works great easy to install with minimal soldering skills required
The shell has excellent build quality and looks great! I'm still rocking the OEM LCD with the orange backlight mod and it all fits great.
Pretty awesome, works well. I can see the screen of my dmg-01 so much better now. The washed yellow backlight retains the retro look as well. Installation was not too difficult for someone with moderate soldering experience. Great purchase.
Good for those who want to keep the original feel of the oem screen, but still want to play in the dark. The gradual dimming of the panel and the faint, ghosting lines on the screen are things you cant avoid, and the teal backlight does get greener as the batteries weaken. Despite that being said, it still looks beautiful. When bivertless, the screen looks very similar to the oem screen is bright lighting conditions because the backlight panel acts as a reflector, which is a nice touch. Overall, great budget mod!
