DOCUMENTATION:

NOTES:

  • The display area on the LCD is slightly smaller than the original so a TFT lens must be used to mask properly. 
  • Foam adhesive is not required if using either spacer set. You may use either 3D printed spacers or acrylic spacers depending on preference.
  • After installation, if it is noted that your touch sensor is overly sensitive or is cycling, please see this article for assistance. 
  • The touch sensor can be placed near the top of the console near the IR data transfer window.

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.

Easy, functional, amazing

Super easy to install, works like a charm. I have 0 experience with anything electronic and I had no difficulty whatsoever. So happy with the screen quality, even the dimmer button works great.

Quite the upgrade!

I've installed this on 2 of my GBC consoles now and they are a gazillion times better now! I can play at night now and the install was not that difficult at all!

Decent enough for backlit solution that doesnt drain double AA’s like their nothing but for the price would expect a bit better, still works for my needs though and am happy enough. UPDATE: Well after owning the screen and having it installed for barely over a week its developed a group of black lines on the bottom of the screen very disappointed as i liked this screen, I saw another review who had the same problem not to mention that for the price you would expect something quality and that lasts longer than a week.

Thanks for your review! Please send us a support message so we may look into what may have caused the issue with you!

Easy install

It's an easy peasy install. Be sure to get a 2.2 inch lens as well with your purchase. The display is great, the only thing that could be better would be a retro pixel option but the display is much better than the original despite being smaller.

Super easy for a first-timer.

I had never done any console mods before, but I recently got an itch to put a backlit screen into my old GBC that’s mostly been sitting in storage for years. I haven’t soldered electronics since high school about 15 years ago, so I didn’t want to dive into soldering anything for my first ever mod attempt.

After doing a bit of research, I came across this screen and decided to give it a shot. I bought the lens to match, as other reviewers had noted the visible white spaces around the screen if you keep the original GBC lens.

The screen was super easy to install, especially with HHL’s video that walks you through the whole thing. The whole project took me a little over an hour. But that’s because I had to learn how to remove the old screen and lens, then how to install the new ones. I also swapped in new buttons and pads. If I were to do this again, I’d say it would take me about 20 minutes. I’m sure an experienced modder would need even less time.

Once it was all installed and tested, of course I threw in Link’s Awakening DX. The screen looks great! The colors really pop. The touch sensor to adjust the brightness works great, and it’s just a cool little feature to have. It’s also worth noting that the lens made for this screen fits it perfectly. At only a couple bucks, I’d say it’s a vital addition to this screen. Really ties the Game Boy together.

Additionally, HHL shipped my stuff out the next morning, and it arrived maybe 3 or 4 days after I placed the order. To any first-timers like me who are just starting out with Game Boy mods, I’d highly recommend this purchase.
