NOTES:

  • This kit no longer includes the Black Q5 glass lens with logo cutout/clear. Please purchase Q5 Lens with Clear Text separately. You will want one of the 'Clear Text' variants to take advantage of illuminated Game Boy Color logo option.
  • After installation, if it is noted that your touch sensor is overly sensitive or is cycling, please see this article for assistance.

WARNINGS:

  • 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.
  • *Soldering the BAT wire is required for operation of this kit. Soldering this wire only will not void the return policy.

    A beautiful screen with a handy party trick

    Very happy with this product. The IPS screen is bright, sharp, and vivid, and the image from the HDMI out is sharp and clear. A fun project if you enjoy soldering and case modding.

    Game Boy Color HD TV Output Mod

    Install and shell modification was a bit of work but that was part of the fun. Works well on the TV, brings my nostalgia to a new level

    Two GBCs both with custom shells and HDMI(mini) out

    One of these(black) I didn't do the Retro-Glow and it was fairly straightforward to build and put together both with the Rechargeable Battery mod(standard port, not USB-C) and Clean Amp v1.2. The semi-clear purple one with Samus on it was given to me so I put it to use and added Retro-Glow to this one. Only things I can say is that I have this electrical noise that I can't seem to get rid of no matter how I try to tackle it on both systems. Overall, awesome stuff guys!

    Just buy it!

    Awesome kit! I would definitely recommend getting a q5 ready shell or it will be a lot of trimming though. Screen was easy to install after the shell was trimmed and picture is awesome! HDMI looks really good as well. Make sure to trim a bit of the top and bottom shell for the HDMI kit before installing and fit test often. Ordered a second kit already for a friend's upgrade.

    Great little screen

    This kit is fantastic. The screen is crystal clear and the hdmi out looks so good on the TV. I opted to trim the shell but I would have to say it was a giant pain and I would recomend buying a pre cut shell to put it in

    This is seriously awesome.

    I love this upgrade. The new screen is bright and gorgeous. I love the software options, ability to adjust sizing - and the HDMI out is fantastic. It' gets a bit cramped so make sure everything fits well and you do the needed pin trimming for thickness. Purchasing the IPS Ready Shell definitely helped. Also having a dremel on-hand for straight cuts. I love that the logo lights up too.
