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.

Fantastic

Fantastic! New IPS v5 screen for my original Game Boy works just as advertised! My original screen broke (showed horizontal lines) since 1994. Swapping the original for the IPS v5 was all I had to do, and now it works even better than when I got the Game Boy brand new in 1991!
