Knowledge Base


  • 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 Product

Awesome screen and was super easy to install. Follow the instructions to the T. Touch sensor works great, maybe a little sensitive though.

LCD looks great, touch cable is for looks only

The screen itself works great but sadly the touch pad doesn't work, even with the gameboy open and touching directly to the pad. At least it is stuck at decent brightness

Great Modification, Despite Brightness Control Ribbon Cable

I installed this in a trimmed OEM shell with a GCB motherboard that includes a replacement power switch, PAM8302a Amp, and a new power regulator, along with some updated buttons. This was my most "technical" build yet, and a big THANK YOU goes to the HHL Team (Jack in particular) for fielding my (verbose) questions about proper installation, power consumption, and the like. I understand some fellow reviewers' qualms about the updated ribbon cable for brightness control, but I was able to tuck it into the front-top center of the shell, where it worked wonderfully until I installed my power regulator. I believe the new regulator has affected the way the LCD consumes and draws power for the brightness control, but losing this control hasn't really bothered me. Ultimately, I am thrilled to have a louder, clearer, and more vibrant GBC system, the updated LCD is a robust improvement.
