Game Boy IPS LCD

  • Sale
  • Regular price $69.99


Important: At the moment, these kits by default have an issue where the two grays in the color palette are swapped, requiring some soldering to correct. However, for the pre-assembled drop-in version, we have manually corrected this issue to maintain the solder-free nature of the pre-assembled kit.

If you're looking for a crisp, full-sized backlit LCD for your Game Boy, look no further than this IPS LCD kit. This kit contains everything required to give your old DMG a bright new display. In addition, the viewing area is the same size as the stock display, meaning no special lens is required!

We're offering this product both as a DIY kit, and a pre-assembled drop-in. The DIY kit will provide you with all that you need to install this LCD, and will require some soldering for the Game Boy speaker, as well as to correct the color palette as mentioned above. The pre-assembled drop-in will come with the kit pre-assembled, the color palette already corrected, and will include a new GameBoy speaker already soldered to the PCB. 

If you're looking to go all the way with refreshing the look of your old Game Boy, check out our shells, buttons, and glass lenses! As well, while our bracket was designed for laser cut acrylic, if you would like to 3D print your own, you can download the STL file on our thingiverse. 

Important: Even with the preassembled kit, two screw posts will need to be cut on the shell. We will be posting a tutorial shortly, that includes a photo of which screw posts to cut.

    Notes

    • This is an aftermarket product and may not feel identical to its genuine counterpart
    • We strongly recommend testing this LCD before installing it in your console; we are unable to accept returns on kits that have been installed in a console
    • Too much pressure can permanently damage the screen and result in rows of dead pixels. Do not force the shell closed around the LCD.
    • Some minor shell modification is required, involving cutting the screw posts on the interior front of the shell. This trimming can be accomplished with a pair of side cutters.

    Warning

    • LCD may break under pressure or if dropped. We recommend you exercise care when installing this product.
