For single-ASIC boards please note simplified v2.2 instructions in the Installation documents
Upgrade your handheld console with a modern LCD screen. Dramatically improves color, contrast, and clarity!
VGA output feature provides a connection to an external monitor, TV, or projector (installation optional).
Installation documents are downloadable from our Wiki. Installation reqires appropriate soldering tools and experience!
Installation Note: Because all VA1 Game Gears are prone to capacitor leakage / PCB damage, we advise you to replace the system capacitors and perform a burn-in test with the stock LCD before installing a McWill kit.
McWill Kit Includes:
- Replacement LCD Module
- VGA connector
- Attachment Hardware
- Multi-conductor ribbon cable
- 4x 0 ohm bridge resistors for 1 ASIC units
Please note: Due to the delicate nature of these products no returns are accepted.
If you experience any issues during install, please leave LCD installed for the troubleshooting process.
