  • 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.

Very good screen, can't go wrong for original GBA shell

The screen is very nice, no arguments about the image quality per say ( keep reading ), Has been working since initial test prior to install as of 2/11/24, only minor thing is some backlight bleeding through and really only noticeable when you get towards the top levels of brightness. Not really sure why that is, and the only reason I knocked a star off, otherwise everything seems to be in working order as intended. I did not solder the leads for L+R+Sel which are optional, as I wanted to make sure the screen worked as per test / install instruction from HHL.

Backlit IPS 3.0 new

great buy, I like the brightness modes.

Great non-solder option!

Everything came safe, worked as advertised and any errors in installation were my own user error. Didn't solder the optional shoulder button options to the motherboard but the touch panels work well through the OEM casing.

Screen looks beautiful! Applying the adhesive wasn't too bad! Would recommend.
