Gameboy DMG -01 LCD Screen Replacement

Post by Jmm07e » Sun Sep 23, 2018 7:03 am

Does anyone know where I can get an LCD screen for a Gameboy DMG-01?

My screen is blank. There is sound. I want to replace the screen;

All I see is backlight mods, which I will do once I find the replacement screen.

You may be able to remove the screen like seen in that video, but you will not find a replacement screen anywhere, as they are not produced.

Your only option is to buy another gameboy and use the entire screen PCB. Or look into BennVenn's screen retrofit mod. Which uses a new custom screen. I am unsure if he keeps stock of those, but check his website.

I would avoid desoldering the screen unless you have experience with that type of work.

Do you have any pics or videos of you current gameboy and PCB, maybe there is an issue that can be fixed on it? If it's totally blank though, it's likely dead!
