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.

Great quality, easy installation, but optional bracket is not optional.

This was a joy to install into a new shell in addition to being simple. But without the optional screen bracket it is quite difficult to get a great fit. The bracket is inexpensive and should be included with this kit. None the less I would recommend this product to anyone that is interested in a fun and easy project.

Great kit. Easy to assemble and has been working great. So happy to breathe new life into my old GameBoy. Would buy from HHL again for my game gear project

Looks great!

I've modded a previous DMG with (I think) this kit before, and it works great! Can be a bit tricky to get the ribbon cable in, but I eventually got it.

(ignore the dust on my white gameboy, btw, haha, that's all from assembly, gotta clean it!)

I've modded about 5 things using exclusively parts from HHL, and they all just WORK. This is no different.

You guys are great!

Do not buy

I bought this kit and it arrived damaged. The company refuses to replace it and accused me of removing some insurance I did not remove. There are several other shops that sell these kits who will replace it if they send you a damaged product instead of accusing you of things and telling you you're just out of luck.

Take my advice, go buy from RetroModding or Retro Game Repair Shop. I decided to give HHL a shot this time and I wish I'd just stuck to the shops I trust.

Thanks for your review! We let you know of our shipping policy in regard to Route Shipping Insurance and removing it from orders. The only way for the insurance to not be on an order is for a customer to manually remove it VIA a toggled button. Unless you hit this button accidentally, there is no way it would not have been on the order if you did not remove it intentionally. It is always added to orders automatically.

As a courtesy, we offered you several solutions which did involve covering most of the cost for a replacement. Route Insurance is added to orders to cover issues such as shipping damage, which is what occurred here. It isn't fair to other customers who have paid for the insurance, to offer a complete replacement to you on an item damaged in shipment without the shipping insurance.

As we mentioned, other modding companies have very similar policies (please look into their policies before purchasing from them) and you may find they will handle a situation like this very similarly. For example, one of the mentioned companies specifically states the following and uses the exact same shipping insurance we do: 'We are not responsible for lost or damage packages! We always highly recommend purchasing our third party Insurance at checkout. It's inexpensive and they make it very simple a quick to make a lost or damage package claim if you need to do so.'

Nice kit

This is a great kit. I really like the pixel mode and that I can change the color of the screen to be similar to an original game boy. I do hope one day Funnyplaying makes a laminated version of the display as dust is the enemy of these kinds of kits.
