  • 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 IPS Backlight Screen
  • 1x Ribbon Cable (V2 version)
  • 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.

    works well love it

    works well love it. only downside is it doesn’t just pop right into an ips shell. be sure to line it up nicely. ips screen lens is a must as the screen is slightly larger than the og

    Awesome parts that work like a dream

    I can’t say enough about how well and amazing everything I bout for my mod turned out. The screen, shell, buttons, battery, and screen lens are all high quality and work so well. I’ll absolutely buy from here again for my next mod!

    Doesn’t work

    When I first got I tested it and it was fine but then I put it in and it stopped. I took it out and tested again and it worked only for a second then it stopped and kept flashing on and off, now it just doesn’t work at all. In the photo it’s on you can see the green light.

    Thanks for reaching out! I'm sorry to hear the kit is not working for you. Please reach out to support@handheldlegend.com so we can troubleshoot this with you!

    I was tired of the desaturated screen that the default gba has, so I decided to order this, and it's been great! The screen is bright enough to see even in sunlight and can be seen from many viewing angles. My only gripe with it is that there isn't a warning about the screen being a little bit too big for the original screen protector (or at least having a bundle that comes with one that has a smaller bezel), but it's not too big of a deal. The screen was delivered quickly, maybe about 4-5 days, and works perfectly!

    These are the best screens

    Out of all the IPS screens I have tried, the FunnyPlaying v2 units are the only ones that can be overclocked. That is with using the GBAccelerator. All other screens seem to have issues.

    Screen is tinted blue.

    Really disappointed with this screen. I received this screen and it turn on, there is a striking blue tint. Hope this can be resolved.
