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 GBC shells, to minimize the risk of damage during the installation.

screen is awesome

As someone that isn't the most technically inclined I found the entire experience quick and easy. The screen is a lot brighter than I thought it would be, which is great. If it ever comes up in the future I will 100% recommend this product.

Amazing as Always

Everything came in and I was just as eager to assemble all the parts for my latest mod as I was the first time. My sister and I have always been Nintendo fans and she was ecstatic when I handed her new GameBoy Color. She didn't know that was possible to have a back-lit display on a GameBoy. Needless to say, she hasn't put it down much...

Bright and colorful.

The IPS LCD screen is a bright, crystal-clear, colorful screen that gives new life to Gameboy games. I especially appreciate that it was easy to install, with zero soldering and easy connection, only needing to trim some solder points on the circuitboard.
