Description:

Upgrade your Game Boy Pocket (GBP) with this Game Boy Pocket IPS LCD Backlight Kit. IPS LCD's  are characterized as having the best color and viewing angles available today. Take your old and outdated reflective pocket display to a bright and colorful upgrade your 10 year old self could only dream of.

Please note: FunnyPlaying has changed the design of this kit. It will now include a black ribbon cable and short touch sensor. Updated photos and guides coming soon.

  • IPS sized glass screen lens NOT included. Customize with your choice of lens
  • Case modification and soldering required
  • Genuine Funny Playing product
  • Built-in 36 retro color combination
  • Contrast wheel brightness function
  • 5 second press on touch sensor changes into pixel mode. 3 second press goes back to previous color option.
  • 11% larger than the original LCD (Glass screen sold separately)
  • Overall power consumption between 0.3 - 0.8W
  • Accurate aspect ratio
  • Toggle between brightness options through contrast wheel

IPS COMPARISON CHART

  • Since GBP USES two AAA batteries, the maximum capacity we can find is at 1100mWh. According to our repeated tests, it ran the original cartridge at normal brightness indoors for about 3 hours.
  • It is recommended to use an electronic cleaner to handle your power switch and gray scale adjustment buttons. This makes the LCD brightness adjustment smoother to use

Notes:

  • 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. 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.

Installation:

*Soldering is required to dry test this kit. Soldering the power wire in this case will not void the return policy.

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.

    Troubleshooting

    Received what I thought was a nonfunctional screen, instructions said not to solder anything or apply adhesive before testing it. Screen didn't work, but after contacting customer support I found out you have to solder a wire from the power contact on the ribbon cable to the power switch, and soldering in that case would not void the warranty. After I did that, it worked perfectly, although the enameled wire was too thin for my strippers and I accidentally pulled it apart trying to expose more of the ends.

    Screen looks beautiful

    Install was easy, but did need to be very precise when installing. A 3D printed bracket to use as a guide as other kits have would have been great

    Great bit of kit - My screen looks ace!

    Easy installation with some online guidance.

    The screen itself looks amazing, didn't catch there was colour combos in the product description which was a nice surprise.

    Would 100% reorder this screen for future mods!

    I will add though - It would be great to have instructions included for those new modding but that's a small admin issue

    Works beautifully

    This was my first solder install and it was simple with the easy to follow directions. Not too sure why the second touch sensor is included with kit (as the ribbon cable already has one integrated) when it has the same function. A nice backup I suppose. Regardless simple install with no issues will be purchasing again

    Great screen

    The screen looks and plays great. Installation was easy with only one wire needing to be soldered. The only way installation could be easier is with an alignment bracket instead of the stick gasket. I bought the ips ready shell and alignment by the instructions leaves is around 1 row of pixels to far to the left and & 1 column to high. This doesn’t cut anything off per say, but it is noticeable.

    Excellent Quality and Easy Install

    I bought this screen to go along with a Funnyplaying shell, the Famitsu Lens and some new buttons. I was nervous about soldering having never done it, but with there only being two solder points, it was done in no time. The screen quality is amazing and keeps this console relevant for another twenty years. I highly recommend this upgrade; you will be very satisfied.
