Did you clean the contacts on the game as well as the system? You may also try setting the GBA back to it's factory settings by turning it on and holding down L,R,A,B and Start

SOURCE: broken screen on sp

you need to find a broken gba sp on ebay and buy a tri-wing screw driver usualy can be found oon ebay or amazon easily disassemble both units and switch the screens, should be a slightly delicate ribbion cable that attaches it to the logic board, then assemble a working gba out of the good parts, thats gonna be the only way to actuall fix it depending, assuming the screen didn't loose it connection to the main that case you won't need to buy parts, other than that you can sell the gba on ebay for parts and put the money towards another gba.

You need to contact Nintendo to do that, or a game store to see if they do repairs. I don't advise you to do this at your own risk.

I had the same problem. It was a solder connection in the charger socket. I tried to fix it but made it worse. I ended up having to switch the battery with a charged one from another GameBoy. That's how I was able to keep using it.

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.
