Unfortunatley no there is no backlight for the gameboy color and your problem is a VERY common one.

    Game Boy Advance SP has a back light but youd have to go and buy a whole new gameboy....

The original gameboy, gameboy colour and gameboy advance don't have a back light built in them but gameboy advance sp does have a built in light for the system then.

If you don't want to buy a SP, just play where there's more light.

Hi! I am experiencing difficulty with the brightness on the screen of my GameBoy Color. Is there a way to adjust the screen brightness, so that it would be brighter? -Stine


Unfortunately, the Game Boy color has no backlight, so there's no way to make the screen any brighter. You can change the contrast, but that will only affect how dark things appear on the screen. Sorry.

Hi i have a Gameboy color and 1 advanced and they both have problems with the lcd screen it's so dark hard to se what's going on on it :) what's wrong ? can anyone help


you either play them under direct (sun) light or attach some kind of external light like a worm light for a game boy color/advance, but the light isn't evenly distributed. i have a halo light for my gb advance--better than nothing.
game boy advance sp has a front lit screen.
GameStop sells game boy advance sp for $40.

The screen is not very bright. What can I do?


The gameboy color does not have a backlight -- it's not supposed to be very bright. You have to play under a bright light or get a light attachment for your gameboy color.

MacBook screen dims


first there could be many meanings of dims with a laptop screen one is backlight has turned off and it is difficult to see.  if that is the case use you brightness key to check if it is up, if it is more likely your inverter has gone up and in worse cases the screen. it may also start bright then change dim while loading
there is also the feature on mac to automatically dim the screen a little when unused for a set time.  to change this go to system preferences, go to energy saver, click show details, then move to options, and uncheck the the box that says "Automatically reduce the brightness of the display before display sleep".
i hope this is what you are talking about.

TREO 90 Backlight


The Treo 90 had a problem with backlight failure, which Handspring acknowledged and began fixing back in 2002.  However, their guideline was that if your 90 did not fail within 6 weeks of use, it did not have the defective part responsible for the failure.
Your backlight probably has just died of old age.  It is EXTREMELY difficult to replace just the backlight (I've tried).  If you search long enough on eBay, though, you can probably find a 90 with a broken case, dead battery, broken motherboard, or some other ailment, but with a functioning screen/keyboard assembly, including backlight.  It's a pretty simple matter to replace the screen/keyboard assembly (there's a screw hidden under the battery that holds it into the front frame).

PDA screen?


Reflective LCDs do not have a backlight, because of this they can be difficult to use in some lighting situations. The Transflective LCD can be read while unlit, by ambient light, but it also has a backlight, which makes it better in low light situations.
