    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.

    Incredible Screen

    Bright colors, great contrast and very easy to install. Controls are intuitive to use and the shell trimming necessary was minimal. Already ordered more.
