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!

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(not included). 

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

  • 1 x Front PCB
  • 1 x Video Driver PCB
  • 1 x Front PCB Ribbon Cable

Documentation

  • The kit includes a bracket, but we also have our own in-house "upgraded" bracket available here
  • If you'd like to 3D print your own IPS LCD centering bracket, our .STL file is open source and available on Thingiverse

Notes

  • This is an aftermarket product and may not feel identical to its genuine counterpart
  • 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.
  • On-screen battery display is a rough estimate, and may not be accurate

Warning

  • We strongly recommend testing the display before installing it in your console. Please follow our Display Testing Guide to confirm the kit is working before the adhesive is secured, the display protection sheet removed, or any non-critical soldering to the ribbon or driver PCB. We are unable to accept returns or replacements on kits that have been installed in a console. Individual replacement parts may be available in the "Included" section above.
  • The ribbon is very fragile, be sure to handle it carefully to avoid damage.
  • Too much pressure can permanently damage the display, do not force the shell closed around the LCD. Ensure the shell is properly trimmed for the display before attempting to install it.

Awesome Replacement!

This is a really nice kit that is easy to install. Don’t pay a ton of money for Gameboy DMG. Find one on the cheap that has a broken screen and buy this kit. The 9 year old version of myself would have lost his mind to have a GB with a backlit LCD screen in 1990. Fast shipping and well packaged!

My DMG has been given new life

I honestly never thought that I would want to play games on my original Game Boy again. With this installed, I can't imagine playing them any other way. Installation was easy. Soldering was reasonable even though I haven't soldered in ~7 years. The color palettes are a nice touch, too. All-in all this was a great kit and I'm happy with the results.

Great product, very straightforward installation. I’ve never installed anything like that before and it went really smoothly. Definitely worth the $$.
