This LCD screen is excellent. If you are quite experienced with soldering, this kit is reasonably easy to install. The instructions are clear, and you will find many videos online to help you. You need to be careful when you solder on the LCD ribbon pads and use soldering flux. I noticed two minor flaws in the product I received:
- The LCD was too close to the PCB, making it extremely difficult to fit on the Game Gear motherboard. Without modification, the LCD was slightly bent due to the pressure. My motherboard was perfectly flat, and the fuse pads extremely clean, so it was not the problem. I had to remove the LCD screen from the PCB and fix it myself. Now it fits perfectly.
- No 0 ohm resistors are provided with this kit. These resistors are required for 1 ASIC consoles. You can replace them with condo legs trimmed to fit perfectly. Alternatively, you can bridge the pads.
- Be careful if you use liquid flux. Tilt your motherboard toward you to make sure that the flux does not enter into the screen's backlight. If flux goes onside, it will create some stains on the backlight reflective sheets. I had this problem because I did not pay attention (no fault on the product then). If it happens, carefully disassemble the screen and clean the reflective sheets of the backlight.
Otherwise, this is a good product!
