Documentation

The functionality of the Ribbon is as follows:

  • A long hold of the touch sensor will cycle through retro pixel effects
  • A long hold of start + select will enter function mode; holding start + select again will exit function mode.
    Be aware, although you may be unable to see the lit words "game boy logo" beneath your lens, the function mode still works as follows...
  • While in function mode:
    • Tapping the touch sensor will cycle through different words in the GBC logo
    • With "game" selected, start and select will move the display up and down
    • With "boy" selected, start and select will move the display left and right
    • With "color" selected, start and select will cycle through color options for the GBC logo

    Notes

    • Some soldering is required, install as shown here
    • Some shell trimming is required to accommodate the larger LCD. A trim guide can be purchased here
    • The ribbon is very fragile, be sure to install it carefully.
    • This screen kit includes a basic bracket. Although you can add a new 3-piece bracket we've developed for this screen kit.
    • 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.

    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.

    Great looking screen!

    Bought this for my first mod. I messed some things up but in the end got it all working and it looks amazing.

    Just What I Was Looking For

    It was a fairly simple install (granted, I didn't use my original shell), and just what I needed to breathe new life into my GBC.

    The ribbon is not that good

    The touch sensor for the ribbon is not very sensitive, tried a bunch of placementd and it's really hard for it to pick up. At some point it stopped working and ended up with unusable product. Not sure if it was caused by my poor handling of the product but it should be more reliable. Great costumer service tho
