An easy to use drop-in kit to upgrade your Game Boy Color! Don't want to take the risk modding your childhood console?


  • Display is transflective, meaning it works wonderfully in direct light!
  • No shell modification required
  • Beautiful LCD with backlight
  • Soldering not required
  • 5 level touch brightness control



  • 1x TFT LCD
  • 1x PCB
  • 1x 3D printed Spacers
  • 1x Acrylic Spacers
  • 1x Double sided foam adhesive 
  • 2x Insulating film
  • 1x Ribbon
  • 1x Touch sensor ribbon


  • The display area on the LCD is slightly smaller than the original so a TFT lens must be used to mask properly. 
  • Foam adhesive is not required if using either spacer set. You may use either 3D printed spacers or acrylic spacers depending on preference.
  • A Glass Game Boy Color TFT Screen Lens is NOT included in this kit.
  • The touch controller can be placed near the top of the console near the IR data transfer window.



  • 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.

The screen upgrade is very easy. No modifications to original shell and the difference between the two screens are night and day. Would recommend immediately.

I love it!

Easy install and it looks great!!

Very easy to install

First time modding gameboy colors. This was super easy to install, took me about 45 minutes. Just wish there was an extra bracket piece for the bottom of the screen. I initially made the mistake of not putting the screen all the way up into the chassis and had to reopen the system and fix it.

Amazing quality!

I could not be happier with this product. It is very easy to install and only takes a matter of minutes. The look of it is amazing and will bring the best of pictures to your GBC. The only thing you really need is the bracket that is sold separately other than that this is great.

Nice Replacement Screen!

This is only the second screen replacement I've done, and I was surprised at how easy it was to do, and it looks beautiful! The colors are bright and the brightness sensor is very responsive. Plus, the IR sensor still works with the brightness sensor in!

I did have an issue where I couldn't get the screen centered in the right spot after putting everything together but I figured it out and now it looks perfect.

Absolutely brilliant

I bought this to repair/refurbish and update my gf's childhood Gameboy color (had screen damage from sun exposure) and it looks amazing!
