      Notes

      • This is an aftermarket product and may not feel identical to its genuine counterpart
      • We strongly recommend testing the display before installing it in your Game Boy. Please confirm the kit is working before connecting the tape, 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 for the v3.
      • 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.
      • For v4 kits, the display on the LCD may be misaligned to the viewport; holding the brightness wheel will bring up an options display, where you can adjust the horizontal and vertical position of the image to align it with the console viewport
      • On-screen battery display is a rough estimate, and may not be accurate

      Warning

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

      The kit was easy to install and looks fantastic.

      I didn't realize the screen would have several different color options. I can't wait to buy one for my gameboy pocket color!

      Good product but no instructions wth

      It's a solid product but I would've liked printed instructions vs having to Google it all for myself. I really like the end result but had I known that would've been the case I'm not sure I would have purchased this. I mean seriously who doesn't include instrcutions even digital ones?

      Fantastic screen

      Great screen lots of options for customization the included mount did have to be trimmed significantly or the contrast know could not be turned but not a huge deal
