Add this IPS LCD to your Game Boy Advance SP to make your play more enjoyable with a modern display, featuring enhanced brightness, color and clarity! 

This "Cloud" version is yet another type of IPS backlight you can buy for your Game Boy Advance SP.

Features:

  • Compatible with both AGS models
  • Shell modification required if not using IPS Shell.
  • Center screen installation, no offset display
  • One wire needs to be soldered from ribbon to motherboard for brightness function. 
  • Cloud SP Lens is pre adhered to the LCD, choose your color. 

Contents:

  • 1x IPS Backlight Screen with lens pre-adhered. (See Warnings)
  • 1x PCB Board
  • 1x Ribbon Cable (Type of cable may vary, please see notes)

Notes:

  • The Black and White variants have been recently updated, and will now include a ribbon cable with a touch sensor attached. (See photos) This touch sensor can be used for brightness adjustment with a tap and with a long press you can activate B/W mode, Pixel mode, and HD (regular) mode. All other variants will not have this function and will be discontinued once we are sold out.
  • The viewing window for this kit is slightly larger than OEM.
  • Lower power consumption. According to the battery capacity and different game cards, the power consumption may vary.
  • You can use your original SP Lens, however some of the images on the edge of the LCD screen will be blocked. You will also have to carefully separate the Lens pre-adhered from the LCD. Doing this will void the product warranty as the LCD may break during this process.

    Documentation:

    WARNINGS:

    • 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.

    Great, but touch sensor needs work

    Overall works well except the touch sensor for the screen modes. It activates too easily when the system gets moved. Could use some foam to keep the screen steadier too.

    Not The Best LCD Kit but Acceptable

    White cloud version. Had an interesting experience with this kit and only moderately satisfied. First kit was strange, it had a noticeable blue-ish hue (appears washed out) compared to other LCD kits. Found that a purple line would display in the middle of the LCD if the foam insert was installed. Upon removing the foam insert, the line disappeared. It also would get images burned in from the previous game after reset and show vertical lines on text with a high contrast background (dark text light background). Worked with HHL support and exchanged.
    The second kit came with same LCD type but a different ribbon cable and maybe a different PCB too. The new ribbon has a touch pad for changing brightness as well as a retro pixel and grayscale mode. Short-press changes brightness and long-press cycles through modes.
    The second kit has the same blue-ish hue (and washed out appearance) as the first, it looks very cold and almost slightly off-palette compared to numerous other IPS LCDs I have dealt with. It also has light bleed in the corners of the screen lens, which is only noticeable in dark environments but I have never seen bleed with any other SP LCD. It did not come with a foam insert and neither kit included any kind of adhesive to affix the LCD.
    The touch pad flex cable can be a little annoying at times. It seems to activate on it's own and change modes when there is no touch but then can be difficult to get to detect actual touch input to cycle back to the desired setting. Seems like opening or changing position of hinge while on makes touch input activate unexpectedly. Wish it did not have this feature at all.
    Overall, it works, it is bright and adjustable and the touch input may be a benefit for some who can't or don't solder. Other people have commented on how beautiful the screen looks. The lack of installation accessories (foam, adhesive) is unusual. The light bleed is a big disappointment but may only be present on white lens and only noticeable in dark. I give it a 6 out of 10. I would have happily went with a different LCD and separate white lens anyday.

    cool colour but missing some stuff that comes with the black IPS screen

    I thought this was just discounted because of the colour (which i love) but there's a couple things not included that are in the other IPS screen kits.
    I was expecting the wire for the backlight controls, double sided tape and a foam backing to be included. I was able to reuse the foam from my original SP to make the screen fit snugly inside. Also the screen didn't have a protective film. Wasn't scratched but I was doubting if i forgot to remove it or not.
