Seriously: while the kit itself isn't hard to put together even with the one wire to solder the foam pad you are given doesn't cut it for holding the screen in position. I did end up having to slightly modify my shell because the bracket made the screen fit too tight,as in if I attempted to push it in any farther it would break so I trimmed the bottom corners and all was well.
I tested the screen as recommended prior to installation on two separate GBPs and it does not power on at all. Going to return and get the Funny Playing kit as I really love the FP kit I put in my GBA
Imported for the first time
It arrives safely
Handa was difficult for beginners
I was impressed when it was completed
I'm a complete amateur so when I read that this was quick and easy, I thought I'd have no trouble. I ran into a couple of problems with this:
1. The bracket I got with this was a snug fit for the casing, however it wasn't built to accommodate the LCD as well as the notches on the bottom of the screen window. I had to break the bracket up in order to get everything to fit nicely
2. The description says there is only one wire to solder but provides two (one with something soldered on the end) and doesn't give you any kind of tutorial. You need to solder two wires (one bigger and one small) as per the image I uploaded. I cut up the one normal wire provided to do this. All other bits connect pretty logically, although I removed the strip for adjusting brightness.
Everything is working after this but it was a real pain in the backside to figure this out without instructions. Hope this review helps people in future!
Screen works great. Using the bracket makes placing the display easy, but I think it made the screen slightly crooked. I might go back and align it better with some tape.
There's only 3 points to solder, touch sensor, power, and ground. I had to look up some images to confirm the spots. Quick note: I ended up taking off the pre installed touch sensor for the wire.
Good option for those who don't want to cut shells.
I found instructions on google, you need to connect a few wires. I removed the touch sensor and soldered on the other wire with the contact pad, and attatched that behind the Nintendo logo on the front, so brightness is adjusted by touching the Nintendo logo.
I recommend getting the alignment bracket. And the glass assumes you have a power LED, which my gbp did not.
