  • Test the kit before installation! Once the display is mounted with the included double-sided foam tape, it cannot be safely removed. We ask that you test the kit by hooking it up before removing the screen protector and before mounting the display using the foam tape.



    • 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 great! Just be gentle.

    Screen worked great and looked just as good. I wanted to reopen my GBA after installing it to adjust the positioning of the screen but once it's stuck in place, it's there for good. The screen is too thin to withstand even the slightest amount of pressure on it.

    This is no fault of the screen of course, I just don't want anyone to make the same mistake I did. And if you do, you can get a replacement screen by it's self for cheap. Don't re-buy this kit if only the screen is broke.

    Couldnt be happier.

    Very simple installation. I kind of screwed up the alignment of the IPS but no big deal. The most difficult thing is honestly just applying the adhesive to the shell ao that it aligns correctly and aligning the IPS also.

    Great screen, beware of the support bracket.

    This install started off as a nightmare. Strongly advise users to NOT use the add-on bracket, it doesn't seem to accommodate the brightness controls wiring and even then this bracket ended up being too cumbersome to actually close the case (though its an "extemerate" case so perhaps just a multi-manufacturer incompatibility). After discarding the bracket altogether, the install guide and overall process was much more smooth and the end result is good. Appreciated the ingenuity of the double ended pin cabling.

    Really nice looking screen, really like it

    Was really pleased with this--just arrived yesterday. Did the dry run for 30 minutes with no issues, but a few hours after the install, a few dead pixels formed. Instructions were a little vague and ultimately left the screen slightly off-center. All in all though I'm very satisfied, and the few dead pixels I've had form aren't going to impact my playing of games on the console I installed it on unless they start expanding.

    I cannot get over how awesome this turned out. I was struggling soldering in the wires for the brightness so I just left them out. I’m going to get the recommended flux and solder and try that at a later date but I’m so happy with how it looks.

    Very happy with this kit

    This was my first mod ever and it went together so easy. I didn’t do the brightness controls because I didn’t have the tools but at the default brightness it is great. Very happy with the screen and battery life also.
