  • 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.

Easy Peasy

Super easy mod to my DMG-01 Game Boy. Only soldering required is for swapping the old speaker over to the new PCB. I bought the suggested screen alignment bracket which seemed to make things go faster. New screen looks amazing in action.

Excellent Product

By far the best option for a DMG screen mod.

Only issue was the length of time between Handheld giving it to their carrier and it leaving the US. Carrier had it in their system for 2+ weeks before forwarding it. Not Handheld's fault but their carrier needs to be more responsive.

Gorgeous display

Never was big into DMG’s. A friend asked me to install this kit for him in a custom shell. It’s made me want a dmg for myself. Easy install, fantastic options to customize how you play your games. Easily one of my favorite kits right now.

Super Easy

I recently bought an old gameboy and found out the left button wasn't working. I was also considering upgrading the screen. This was the best of both worlds as it comes with a new pcb. Installation was super easy and only took 10 minutes. It looks great! Well worth it.

Works well with optional bracket

The wheel to control the brightness feels a little thin, so I wouldn't use it often. You should probably get the bracket.
