  • Rich color and contrast with a modern IPS LCD
  • Compatible with both 40 and 32 pin models
  • Shell modification required if not using IPS ready shells
  • 10 levels of brightness adjustment (requires soldering 3 wires)
  • LCD Alignment bracket available for separate purchase

  • 1x 3M Custom installation adhesive

  • The IPS panel's viewing area is slight larger than that of the AGS-101. In order to make the entire display visible, the LCD requires a lens with a slightly larger viewing area (~1 mm on each side).
  • Please note: Adhesive cutting may be required for better surface area. (See Image, red lines indicate ideal cut points on the corners)
  • Prestige shells may need some trimming near the start/select area inside shell, please refer to product photos. 
  • A modified IPS glass screen is NOT included in this kit. Choose any style as an add-on in standard glass or tempered glass!


  • 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.

    Buy the Laminated Screens

    The IPS ready shells have very poor fitment issues with this IPS kit. Even trimming the shell (that's supposed to be IPS ready) and using the IPS bracket caused the screen to be crooked. The screen broke while I was trying to fix its position. Go with the laminated screen, this one isn't worth the trouble.

    Looks great!

    The install was easy! I didn't soder the wire to adjust the brightness, but the screen is plenty bright and the colors are crisp. The screen is also slightly larger than the original which is easier on my eyes. As long as you don't mind not being able to adjust or turn the brightness off, it's not worth the risk to ruin your Gameboy with a poor soder job. Highly recommend.

    A Step Up from AliExpress

    HHL Wiki was a huge help on this one, as these IPS kits don't typically include instructions. The videos on the website show a handful of tips and tricks to make the install go as smoothly as possible. As usual with Funnyplaying, parts are of good quality and the image quality is great! Wired the optional brightness adjustment using the select button and L+R buttons, and it's a great feature that allows brightness adjustments on the go. Will continue buying these for future mods.

    Ribbon cable shorting everything

    The ribbon cable I received was shorting everything. I tested with a different ribbon cable and everything works great.
