Problem with screen

When I turn the gameboy on the red light comes on and I can hear the sounds, but nothing comes on the screen. Sometimes I instead of the blank screen there are some black lines, but mostly just the blank screen. Is there something I can do to fix this or is there a part I can buy to make it work? Thanks in advance for any help!

Like the first solution poster I agree that your screen is faulty. I would suggest taking the unit apart and ensuring that everything inside the gameboy is connected firmly. This should be relatively simple, provided you have the right screw driver to take it apart, which should be a triangle shaped screwdriver. Good luck

Hi it sounds like the screen is faulty or your batteries are flat which I doubt you can buy a second hand GBA for around £15 on ebay this should then be quite straight forward to switch screens. hope this helps follow link http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ARCTIC-ICE-GAMEBOY-ADVANCE-GBA-CONSOLE-MINT-SCREEN_W0QQitemZ120146139392QQihZ002QQcategoryZ112698QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

My Gameboy original has a black line in the middle of the screen when it is turned on and the screen is blank too. Or sometimes the power light will be like its off when its turned on too.


Well this has had happened to me once before with these problems. I am guessing that no red light coming on could be that maybe the fuses are broken or there might be a loose connection inside of the Gameboy somewhere or the capacitor that is broken could be the problem. Or it could be the screen then. The black line in the screen while it is on is not the lines but a problem with the screen or the machine is not working right. I had hitted the screen and it works now. It might just need to be hited lighty to see if it works on you.

Blank screen


its most likely corroded battery terminals so take the batteries out and clean the terminals with some alchohol and then try. if nothing happens then your gameboy is dead. A cold environment is a good place to store electronics so I don't think it is that. most gameboy problems are caused by ageing of the device.

Niko Sv3706 - When plugged in the Red idle power light is on but when turned on the light goes green then completely shuts off with no light nothing on screen when turned on


Just fixed mine, when plugged in red light comes and goes, sometimes it ststays on but when I turn it on the green light comes on then off. Opened up tv, there is a heat shield of some sort,take off, there is a board where plug goes into the wall,it also has three more plugs plus a ground that is screwed to the tv.I looked at the board and there were two capacitors that were bulged and had brown stuff about to come out the top. They were 1500uf 16v 105c, I changed them only I made them 25v instead of 16. And boom life was good. Good luck and sorry for my spelling.

No image on Gameboy Advance SP


It is possible to buy another Screen for the GBASP, however it would probably be less work and less trouble just to go to your local Gamestop and buy a new SP for 40 bucks.

Nintendo gameboy color is not working no screen comes on and no light comes on.


It simply sounds like the game boy is dead. That generation of Gameboy is very much out of date and could easily be found on ebay (or in gamestop) for cheap. If you don't want to buy a new one, Id suggest contacting Nintendo customer service. I dont think they could fix it for you, but could have some helpful suggestions.

I worked at a Gamestop for 3 years, and that was a common problem among GBC systems. We never got answers either and they ended up just being field destroy.

First of all you need to find out which CRT leaked and replace it before any other repairs are done. The clear liquid is conductive and has done damage to the CRT board or boards.
