DOCUMENTATION:

NOTES:

  • Kits may no longer include a touch sensor as a separate item. This kit has a touch sensor already included on the black ribbon cable. You may use this one by simply folding into the front or back of the shell, to rest on the top of the shell. You may also use the included touch sensor ribbon and solder it onto the 'TCH' point. Depending on the size/shape of this touch ribbon will change it's placement within the shell.
  • The power wire may need to soldered for the LCD to show an image. It may not be required with later versions, however, in order to receive maximum brightness on the LCD this wire will need to be soldered on. If your LCD is not showing an image (remains black but you hear the start chime), please solder the PWR wire.
  • After installation, if it is noted that your touch sensor is overly sensitive or is cycling, please see this article for assistance. 

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.

Good quality and always looks great

I’ve bought a few Q5 IPS Screens for various gbcs, whether it be personal builds or commissions, and they have always been great quality, look very clean and play well. The attached touch sensor seems to work well most of the time as well, to the point where I don’t even have to solder the wires on if I do not have to. Great product.

Beautiful new screen

Screen works amazing just the select button became a little odd after so sometimes it’s a little weird changing the settings. But when settings are right the touch pad for brightness works flawlessly so it’s easy to change brightness without issues.
