  • 1 x PCB ribbon cable with attached touch sensor
  • 3 x Wires
  • 1 x Bracket




  • Only pairs with the Replacement Shell for Game Boy Advance - IPS Laminated - Funnyplaying. Other other shells require extensive trimming.
  • If you received a bracket that looks different from the one in the product photo, you may have received the wrong bracket. Please check to make sure you have received the correct bracket. If this is not completed and the LCD kit is damaged, refunds will not be accepted.
  • Long touch the touch sensor to bring up the OSD display, from there tapping the touch sensor once will adjust the value, and long holding the touch sensor a second time will allow you to cycle through the OSD. To exit OSD either wait 10 seconds or long hold the touch sensor for about 10 seconds.
  • No longer includes foam. Touch sensor can be adhered to the back of the LCD with Kapton tape.
  • After installation, if it is noted that your touch sensor is overly sensitive or is cycling, please see this article for assistance.


  • 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 the kit before installation! Once the display is mounted with the included double-sided foam tape, it cannot be safely removed. We ask that you test the kit by hooking it up before removing the screen protector and before mounting the display using the foam tape.
  • LCD may break if put under too much pressure or dropped. Please exercise extreme caution when installing.

Screen doesnt work and bracket does not fit

The bracket is different from the video instructions they post on the website i tried many ways to get it to fit but nothing lines up and also the touch screen function doesn’t work screen just constantly brightens than dims

Thanks for your review! The bracket in the video is an older version that was universal between the laminated IPS and ITA kits made by FunnyPlaying. They have since released separate versions of the bracket for the IPS kit and the ITA. Please check the product page photos to see if your bracket is the updated correct IPS one. Regarding the touch sensor, please reach out to us at so we may look into this further with you!

ITA Screen Shipped Instead

So I ordered the IPS screen, but was shipped the ITA screen instead. I was ok with this since I was on the fence about which screen to get. I did however get the IPS bracket so I contacted Handheld legend. They were quick to respond and sent the ITA bracket really quickly. I love the ITA screen, I really like that it preserves the original pixel count and has natural pixel grid. I am not however too happy with the fit. I got the funny playing shell, and after everything was installed, it seemed like a super tight fit. It screwed together nicely, but I do have an issue with the D-pad being super mushy. I've tried different membranes and different d-pad's but can't seem to get it right, almost just feeling like the screen is pushing up too much on the main board.

Laminated IPS LCD Kit for Game Boy Advance - 3.0 Inch - FunnyPlaying

Easy to install

I bought the new screen with the shell and it was easy to install. I'm not confident with soldering, but the touch controls on the display are great so you can skip the soldering!

Orlando Farias
New laminated IPS lcd screen

New to this whole modding GBAs and this screen was super easy and nice that soldering is optional
