Add this 3.0" Laminated IPS Kit for GBA SP to your Game Boy Advance SP to make your play more enjoyable with a modern display, featuring enhanced brightness, color and clarity! 


  • More display effects and Mixed frame switch
  • 8 Levels of brightness
  • Shell modification required on non-IPS and OEM shells.
  • Supports brightness adjustment, soldering required
  • Test the kit before installation! Once the display is mounted it cannot always be safely removed. We ask that you test the kit by hooking it up before removing the screen protector and before fully mounting the display.
  • Logo text on lens is holographic.



    • 1x 3.0 Laminated IPS LCD with adhered lens (See Warnings)
    • 1x PCB ribbon cable
    • 1x Adhesive
    • 1x Wire
    • 1x Insulation film strip


    OSD Controls: 

    • Long hold the brightness button to open the OSD
    • Press the button once to change the currently highlighted option
    • Long hold the brightness button again to switch highlighted options
    • To close the OSD simply don't press the brightness button for 5 seconds


    • You do not need to purchase a separate lens. Removing pre-adhered lens from LCD can result in damage to the LCD and will void product warranty. If you received an extra lens in your order, this was likely a included plastic lens with a shell and should NOT be placed on top of the pre-adhered lens.
    • 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.

    Fanatic screen

    Installed the screen in my old game boy I'm updating and it look amazing. I love the bigger screen and it's much more vibrant than the old one

    Adam Toy

    Love the new screen, the colour really pops and the screen is bigger than the original. Plus 6 levels of brightness is a nice touch. I am 100% satisfied.

    Fresh and so clean

    Sharp crisp screen and not very difficult to install. Will need to slightly modify/cut out for screen to fit. Overall satisfied and will order again for future projects/repairs

    Amazing but

    The ips was so much better than the stock one and was easy to install but mines was having two white dots at the top left corner, if I press it goes for few seconds and come back. I think it was a factory issue
