Gameboy sp backlight?

I have three gameboy sp handheld systems. Two are dimmer than the other one. Is there someway to adjust light or replace internal light? On two of them, they light up when system is turned on and if you push the light button in the center, the light goes off. One of the systems, light comes on noticeably brighter than the others, and gets brighter when you push the center button. Light does not go off at all during game play. Have you ever heard of this before?

Re: Gameboy sp backlight?

You have two original SP systems, and one upgraded version. Nintendo upgraded their lcd screens so that the backlight is always on. You can adjust them but they always stay on. The original lcd screens had the backlight on/off option. I much prefer the newer lcd screens. :)

Gameboy Advance does not have a strong back lighting like what you have said. If you wish to help you with additional light there is a accessories I bought several years ago.

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.
