  • Vertical and horizontal display adjustment with on screen controls (OSD).
  • RGB capability, choose from 8 different colors with a press of a button (contrast wheel).
  • OSD menu has Color Adjust option for RGB color balance.
  • Brightness adjustment replaces contrast wheel.
  • OSD menu has Pixilation mode (retro pixel) option.
  • OSD menu has Battery indicator on screen option.
  • Almost solderless. The speaker (not included) will need to be soldered onto Front PCB.


  • 1x Q5 IPS LCD
  • 1x Large front PCB
  • 1x Small PCB
  • 1x Large ribbon
  • 1x Small ribbon
  • 1x Adhesive mounting strip
  • 1x Aligning bracket
  • 1x Q5 Gray lens




  • This kit has a Q5 LCD that is 11% larger than the original. A Q5 lens will be necessary to have the proper viewing window. This kit currently includes a Gray Q5 lens. If you want a different variant, you will have to purchase that separately.

To use brightness, color, and OSD menu on contrast wheel:

  • Cycle normally for brightness.
  • Short press (one to two seconds) to cycle for color modes.
  • Long press (five seconds) to enter OSD.


  • 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 Display

The display is great. I love the option to add pixelation for an old time feel. I have had some difficulty with getting the contrast wheel to fit properly in a regular shell. The display itself is fairly easy to install and looks great.

GB LCD Backlit Screen

This Screen Is One Of The Best Products I Have Purchased. This Is The Fourth Hispeedo Screen I Have Purchased And It Is Very Cool. The Brightness On The Game Boy LCD Backlit Screen Can Be Adjusted Similar To The Original Game Boy"s Contrast. I Am Very Pleased With The Product.


Mod looks great, however, button responsiveness is not good. You have to really push down to register presses, especially the dpad. I have a complete nintendo handheld collection and other modded devices, retro handhelds like the miyoo mini, analogue pocket, and it is the only one that is actually bad.

Thanks for your review! You can try cleaning your membranes (especially if they are original) and the button contacts on the front PCB/board with 97% or higher IPA to ensure there is no dust or debris getting in the way of registering a full press. Depending on the membranes being used, this could be part of the issue as well. If available, you can try testing with another set. If the issue persists, feel free to reach out to support to troubleshoot further.


This screen is pristine! Such an incredible upgrade from the original. Crisp, clear, no tearing as I can tell. Thank you!

Great product

The installation of the GAME BOY DMG IPS LCD V4 Q5 OSD & FRONT PCB KIT - HISPEEDIDO was very simple and for the most part painless. My 10 yr old daughter and I assembled it pretty quickly. We did have an issue with the screen flashing on and off which was resolved with some extra cleaning with alcohol On the ribbon cables. We used a modified shell by Funnyplaying also sold by Handheld Legend. One bit of advice is make sure not to tighten the screws to tight on the shell by the screen adjustment wheel. If to tight the wheel gets stuck.
