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?

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.

Yes, but internal composants or the screen could have been messed up. I wonder how your SP is still alive after that...

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.

LIGHT ISSUE ON GBA SP


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
