Notes

  • Some soldering is required, see the installation guide linked in the documentation section.
  • This kit requires Funny Playing's Laminated GBA shells, as they are designed to accommodate this display; the kit cannot be installed on other shells.

Warning

  • We strongly recommend testing the display before installing it in your Game Boy Advance. 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.
  • We strongly recommend you follow the tutorial linked in the Documentation section and use one of the compatible shells, to minimize the risk of damage during the installation.

Well worth it

The mod was pretty easy to preform. The only problem I would have is connecting the ribbon

Great replacement!

Good screen replacement and with the correct shell, drops in easy. I would knock off a 1/4 star as the screen does not positively seat into the shell nor have any retention so it is a bit fiddly to get everything in the correct spot without damaging the connectors.

Screen is nice and bright and has only minimal draw on the battery life.

Touch sensor is a bit too sensitive but soldering the connecting wires makes it so you don’t have to utilize that feature.

Didn't come with foam piece for touch controls, had to make my own

Giving 4 stars only because of the packaging and also it was missing the black box and foam piece for the touch pad, other than that the screen worked perfectly! I will be purchasing another one for my other GBA!
