Even though I bought their IPS ready GBA SP shell, I need to figure out a way to have the screen fit better. I salvaged the foam from my old SP shell like they suggested, but the screen jiggles from side to side. Not a huge deal but it is bothersome.
Thanks for your review! It sounds like even with the foam you still have some wiggle. You can use some kapton tape to also secure the LCD into place, alongside the foam.
Awesome product although the ribbon cable has to be placed very precisely before closing the top portion of the shell otherwise the screen won’t power on. Second the touch pad doesn’t have the best design but when taped properly it works fairly well. I’d just say sometimes it’ll turn black and white without me trying to do that and it takes a couple minutes to change it back. Overall great screen and not very difficult to install.
Kit was easy to install and worked perfectly out of the box!
Looks and works really nicely, installation was little bit harder thna I expected, but not too complicated. Only issues I have are with touch sensor, that sometimes activates too easily, even when I'm not trying to use it, otherwise great product.
Sadly for me I received a non functional screen. Hannheald Legend support guided me through some troubleshooting process and determined was a faulty unit. They offered me either my money back or a replacement free of shipping rates. Excellent service.
Extremely happy with the LCD. Very much worth updating your old 001 GBA SP. What I wasn’t happy with was how what I ordered didn’t match what was shown in the guides. In the guide (both video and picture) you put the ribbon cable in black tab side up. But with the board I purchased if you do that the cable angles to outside the side of the gameboy, not towards the center. Common sense told me to flip ribbon over so that the contacts would face up, but being that that isn’t what’s shown in the guide I was hesitant to do it for fear of messing something up. Eventually I did it anyway and of course everything worked properly. I’m sure I look pretty silly and dumb to anyone used to doing mods like this, but for newbies who are already nervous about futzing up their system, maybe I don’t! The guides do say something like “updated instructions coming soon.” Maybe soon should be now. How much time would it take to add a pic of the new board and say “if your board looks like this, the cable goes in this way”?
