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.

    It's great I love all the color options, 36! Of them to be exact. And it gets very very bright. Super responsive no button lag

    Limited guide and harder mod - (Updated)

    I've done 4(2 DMG, GBC, GBA) IPS display swaps from HHL so far and this is definitely the most challenging. The support documentation isn't quite as good as other IPS screens AND as I noted its a harder mod. Typically the guides cover some cable management and the full list of items in the kit but no steps outlining the double sided adhesive for the screen or anti-static guards or best how to run the wires. The product description and guide note of an 'optional' OSD menu install in soldering the 3 wires but it shouldn't be considered 'optional' since you'll likely need to adjust the X & Y axis of the screen once assembled (i had to). Soldering to the 'vias', at least for me, was very challenging. The LCD ribbon cable seems the shortest and least flexible of the bunch or the GBP is just too small for its own good.

    At the end of the day though HHL's support prevails again as they helped me troubleshoot a screen flicker which seemed to point to the underpowered 1.2v Li-Ion batteries; once I put in some 1.5v alkaline the system worked as expected.

    Unbranded IPS Kit

    Really liked this kit, installed it in an original Game Boy pocket shell that I trimmed. The picture quality is great and the on-screen display options are nice. A centering bracket would be very helpful but you won't need to worry about it if you get an IPS-ready shell.

    Worked Perfect!

    It’s actually really handy to be able to adjust the location of the image in the display settings. It was also pretty easy to install which was nice :)

    Screen is great but way to hard for me to solder the wires for the extra features. Wish there was a better way

    Worked, but...

    As the description said, the screen is washed out. Reviewing the linked thread, it's not clear what mod is necessary to fix this issue
