v1/v2/v3 Installation instructions Link

Upgrade your DMG Game Boy console with a modern backlit LCD screen.  Dramatically improves contrast, and clarity!  Features a complete replacement for the original LCD PCB for fast installation.

v3 introduces:

  • Easier to install snap-fit LCD module
  • Improved, gold-plated button contact surface
  • Improved color palette (compared to v1)

The v3 IPS panel does have a "scanline" appearance compared to v1/v2.  This is normal for this revision.
The affect is similar to the original Game Boy Advance LCDs.

Includes our exclusive LCD mounting bracket for simplified installation!
Why is this important?  The manufacturer includes 2-sided tape to secure the LCD panel.
These LCD panels are very thin and will be difficult to reposition.
If you want to swap cases at a later date, you'll find that the tape will have strongly bonded to the plastic shell, making removal without damage challenging.

Please do not use tape to fasten the LCD to the shell. Use the included bracket.
It will provide for good image centering or future service.

If you are watching a 3rd party YouTube video for installation, it is important to skip these steps and use the provided bracket.
We will not warranty defective LCD panels that have been taped!

Two solder points required: The original speaker must be swapped to the replacement PCB

Minor trimming of the shell is required for installation.
