    • 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.


    • 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.

    Best display for that retro experience

    This is in my opinion the best display to experience all the old games in pixel look

    Totally worth it

    Replacing the original GameBoy Color screen with the Retro Pixel IPS brings this console to a new life. The screen quality is excellent! Bright image with great colors.
    All the available display options let you choose the most suitable for your taste, mimicking different displays.
    Even though the assembly instructions are out of date, the latest version of the screen size is different, which requires different cutting/trimming of the case. Also, the "flush cut" of the cartridge lost pins on the board behind the screen is not necessary, as there is enough clearance only a masking/kapton tape to protect for shorts will do.

    Great Product

    Great product but the directions for installation were not posted correctly on the website. Customer service was very supportive and installation overall was quite easy.

    Amazing screen

    I am really happy about this. Install is easy enough if you take your time with it. I can finally play my oldschool gameboy at night :)
