IPS Backlight Bleeding Protector for Game Boy

Original price $4.19 USD - Original price $4.19 USD
Original price
$4.19 USD
$4.19 USD - $4.19 USD
Current price $4.19 USD

This 3D printed plastic frame reduces backlight bleed in Game Boy consoles that have been modded with the IPS display. This display naturally cause some light to bleed around the edges. This protector sits between the LCD and the lens to minimize the amount of light visible at the sides of the screen.

Features

  • Fits flush with the LCD opening on aftermarket shells
  • Available in a range of colors designed to match the look of your console, including black, white, light gray, blue, green, and red
  • Reduces visible light bleed on all four sides of the screen
  • Helps protect your screen from dust
  • Also usable for aesthetic purposes, to provide a slight color accent around the LCD

 Included

  • 1 x Game Boy IPS backlight bleed protector in a color of your choosing

Documentation

  • The files for the bleeding protector can be found on our Thingiverse, here

Notes

  • Compatible with RIPS V1, V2, V3 & V5. Not compatible with RIPS V4 or the Funny Playing Retro Pixel IPS as their view areas are larger then the original.
  • This product is intended for modded DMG units and, as such, is sized to fit the opening of our aftermarket shells
  • You may have to trim the plastic with a utility knife to make it fit properly in certain shells
  • Before inserting the bleed protector, ensure there are no plastic shavings around the screen opening, since leftover plastic can cause the protector to buckle
  • This product is not recommended for mods that use both a clear shell and a clear lens, since light will always bleed with that combination regardless

IPS Backlight Bleeding Protector

Works as stated. I did have to readjust it once as it slipped out of position, but it’s perfect now. Might help to have a rubbery coating on it.

Great product

A must have if installing a rips v3. Drastically reduced the backlight bleed from the left and right sides of a unit I refurbished. It could still shine through on the left but only if you held the unit at an extreme angle. The product design is solid. I think mine just had a minor print flaw as it was a small sliver of light.

Didn't get rid of all the light bleed I was expecting more but it does help maybe some soft material as a gasket that sticks to both sides that squish between from and back of the 3d printed piece may help
