Install video by Makho - Please review entire video as the wiring to the VIAs is changed to correct position around the 50 minute mark.

*Soldering is required to dry test this kit. Soldering the power wire in this case will not void the return policy.

*Small ribbon on product photo is oriented incorrectly. Please view the video above for the proper installation.


  • 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.

    Unbranded IPS Kit

    Really liked this kit, installed it in an original Game Boy pocket shell that I trimmed. The picture quality is great and the on-screen display options are nice. A centering bracket would be very helpful but you won't need to worry about it if you get an IPS-ready shell.

    Worked Perfect!

    It’s actually really handy to be able to adjust the location of the image in the display settings. It was also pretty easy to install which was nice :)

    Screen is great but way to hard for me to solder the wires for the extra features. Wish there was a better way

    Worked, but...

    As the description said, the screen is washed out. Reviewing the linked thread, it's not clear what mod is necessary to fix this issue

    Gorgeous Screen Kit

    As per the install video, I do like that the screen driver is not on the flex cable and rather its separate PCB, just seems more durable. The kit as a whole is awesome as long as care is taken to install the screen just right in the viewing window. Also love the color pallettes, that add a bit of color to the monochromatic screen!
