Documentation

  • Please check out our tutorial for instructions on how to install the IPS LCD.
  • The files for both parts of the 3D printed bracket can be found on our Thingiverse, here (bottom bracket) and here (side bracket).

Notes

  • Ribbon is very fragile, be sure to install carefully.
  • We strongly recommend testing the display before installing it in your Game Boy Color. Once the foam tape is applied to your shell, it cannot be safely removed. Please confirm the kit is working before connecting the foam, bracket, and LCD. We are unable to accept returns on kits that have been installed in a console. Individual replacement parts are available above in the "Included" section.
  • Too much pressure can permanently damage the screen and result in rows of dead pixels. Do not force the shell closed around the LCD. Ensure the shell is properly trimmed for the IPS LCD before attempting to install it.
  • The touch sensor ribbon is shorter in the newer version, as seen in the first product photo. Its functionality remains the same; however, we strongly suggest placing the touch sensor on the left side of the shell for a better fit.

Warning

  • LCD may break under pressure or if dropped. We recommend you exercise care when installing this product.
  • Ribbon cable is fragile; be sure to install it carefully.
  • We strongly recommend you follow the tutorial linked in the Documentation section, and use one of our professionally trimmed CGB shells, to minimize the risk of damage during the installation.

Easy install, amazing result.

The screen looks amazing. It's surprising how much the GBC was putting out that you never noticed because of the screen. Kit was super easy to install and thanks the included bracket it's perfectly centred. the only minor issue I had was that the IR cover on the IPS ready case still needed further modifications to get it to fit.

Excellent screen!

Screen looks excellent, and I appreciate the different brightness levels. The installation guide was great as well. Only slight issue I have is the occasional screen tear that shows up when playing games. Otherwise it's a perfect upgrade!
