My gameboy startup screen is the startup screen for the gameboy color

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.

Replacing a cracked lcd screen on a GBA sp ags 001

How comfortable are you with opening you GBA? This website below is a site that I found to purchase a new screen. All you need to do now is to figure out how to open and remove the old screen. The rest should be a snap.

Replacing gameboy advance sp shell

I've replaced shells on the phat ds and it was fairly easy. This doesn't look nearly as complicated. It should be quick and easy.
The only thing I would say is be sure that you are careful with the cables. Make sure you lock them in right. Also, sometimes with new cases if you are having problems getting the metal thing back into the hinges, it is helpful to get a small flathead screwdriver and carve off some of the plastic inside the hinge opening (be very careful). Sometimes there is excess plastic that makes the hole too small for the hinge to fit through and this ensures that you don't scratch up the outside of the case while trying to get the hinge back in.

Instructions to replace hinge of GBA sp

Your better off just trading it in and getting a DS. The only thing I can think of is use something sticky (like honey or corn syrup) and let it set up. That will at least give it some resistance. Sorry couldn't be more helpful.

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

Will not play SP games

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
