Re: Screen replacement

There are screw covers on the face of the unit. remove them carefully so you dont scrath you case or screen. Simply remove the screws and you top half will come apart. Your next step is to remove the hinges. I use a small screw driver and pop them out. Hope this helps

That's normal. The gba will play all three generations of game boy games. The start up screen that comes up is that of whichever cartridge you are putting in.

The new screens being sold are for the Japanese model that is why they fit a bit differently. Also they are just not as bright. There is nothing you can do really to fix this. As you can see on your old screen there is a black frame around the screen, this helped to keep the light centered into the plastic over the LCD and make it brighter, the Japanese version doesn't have this. The LED used is also not as bright on the replacement screens.

GBA SP Backlight Problem

try putting a soldering iron on the joints of the backlight connection and melt the solder in place and do it for both contacts. Try this and it might just be a loose connection. Dry solder joints hapen all the time in most new electronics

GBA SP backlight off.

The SP has a small circular button near the display when the clamshell is opened. That controls the power to the backlight. Have you tried pressing that?
