  • The touch controller can be placed near the top of the console near the IR data transfer window.

WARNINGS:

  • 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.

Cool Screen that Buzzes

Has a pretty annoying buzzing sound on all brightness levels besides full on and full off... It's noticeable until the volume is up to about 50%. Might try the clean power board, but I wish it worked without it. Besides that, I've been enjoying the screen. Installation was easy and IR port is still usable w/touch sensor if you move the touch sensor a bit.

I messed up with ribbon cable.

Not your fault just wish there was qr code to the official video.

Easy Install, looks great

Very straightforward install, no soldering or case modification required. The screen is crisp and bright, and I like having a 0% brightness mode too.

Note that with stock hardware, my speaker/headphones make a high-pitched buzzing whenever the screen is at an intermediate brightness level (20, 40, 60, 80%). There is no issue at 0 or 100%. This seems to be an issue with the stock power regulator, and upgrading to a Clean Power board is supposed to eliminate the buzzing, though I haven't tried it yet.

Great upgrade!

My old game boy color still worked, but it was hard to play in lower light. Swapping in this screen was pretty easy, and now it looks fantastic! The backlight works super well, and the touch sensor to control brightness is tucked in under the IR port and also works perfectly. Very happy with this.
