    • How to test your LCD kit


    • Logo text on lens is silver.
    • After installation, if it is noted that your touch sensor is overly sensitive or is cycling, please see this article for assistance.


    • 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.

    Well worth the price

    Really Good But There Are Better Options

    This IPS kit overall is good and I'd recommend it, easy install and makes the screen 100x better. Especially given the fact that it's typically the cheapest on the site/goes on sale the most.

    However, the screen lens looks cheap in my opinion and I DESPISE the touch sensors. I de-soldered them from the board entirely.

    Came defective

    Ordered the replacement. Came defective. Nothing came out of the display at all. I didn’t realize this until it was fully disassembled. There’s adhesives on the screen which, once removed, void any return policy, which is labeled all over. And of course I removed them during setup.

    Oh well. I bit the bullet and ordered a different screen from a different supplier, which works great and didn’t need the additional circuit board or connector. Won’t buy from this site again.

    Thanks for your review! Please reach out to us at support@handheldlegend.com so we can try to troubleshoot this with you!


    Looks great.

    Works well

    This screen is simple to install and looks good. The color adjustment functionality threw me off after final installation and start up. The screen was in grayscale! After remembering the two touch controls at the bottom of the screen, it was a simple fix. The controls can be finicky. Sometimes they will stop making color or brightness changes or are slow to respond. The legacy screen backlight on/off button can be used to adjust the brightness which is nice.
