Game Boy IPS LCD (RIPS)

  • Sale
  • Regular price $69.99


If you're looking for a crisp, full-sized backlit LCD for your Game Boy, look no further than this IPS LCD kit. This kit contains everything required to give your old DMG a bright new display. In addition, the viewing area is the same size as the stock display, meaning no special lens is required!

We're offering this product both as a DIY kit, and a pre-assembled drop-in. The DIY kit will provide you with all that you need to install this LCD, and will require some soldering for the Game Boy speaker. The pre-assembled drop-in will come with the kit pre-assembled, and will include a new GameBoy speaker already soldered to the PCB. 

If you're looking to go all the way with refreshing the look of your old Game Boy, check out our shells, buttons, and glass lenses

Important: Please note, the v3 and v4 kits use different brackets. Product photo is currently of the v3 kit.

      Documentation

      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.
      • 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.

      Amazing MoD

      Really easy to fit and install with the 3D printed housing for the control boards.
      Only soldering required was the speaker but this is very easy to do.

      End results are amazing, beautiful display.

      Looks great, easy install!

      This kit is perfect. With the 3d printed bracket everything went together perfectly and without hassle. Worked first try. The screen quality is literally a night and day difference in quality and ease of actually seeing what you're doing. Wicked good kit, thanks!

      Love it!

      Install was easy, and paired with a custom shell/buttons makes for a beautiful restoration project. Can't wait to do my GBC and AGS!

      Great screen

      Just installed the V3 screen in my DMG, love it. So simple to fit and get up and running and looks so bright and clear, its what the game boy should have been made with if it was possible at the time.
      Also used the transparent purple case with mint buttons. Everything works very well together.
