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).

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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Nice screen, easy to install

Very nice customizeable palette option. Easy to install, no custom screen protector needed and minimal case trimming. Some of the color settings are not very precise and it can be hard to dial colors in. The screen has a little ghosting and some horizontal artifacts can be seen with some color settings especially lower saturation. But overall it's a million times better than an original backlit screen and way, way easier to install. Haven't encountered any annoying button issues. Overall very pleased with the purchase.

Amazing!

This kit is great! Works just as it's says it does. Screen is a lot better the factory one, it's night and day difference. I love all the color options and being able to fine tune them if needed. If your on the fence about this kit.......just buy it, you won't be disappointed.
