Good day I have a gameboy advance the old model. I just bought it here in the philippines. the problem is its kinda dim not unlike the gameboy advance sp its has a backlight and you can see all the games...

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. You can go to SM malls and go to toy kingdom section. You just need to attach it. If i'm not mistaken its only like P250.00.

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.

Why doesnt my gameboy sp backlight work?

If pressing of the light bulb icon does not work at relighting the screen the LEDs/back-light may have burnt out. You may have to get the system replaced.

No image on Gameboy Advance SP

It is possible to buy another Screen for the GBASP, however it would probably be less work and less trouble just to go to your local Gamestop and buy a new SP for 40 bucks.

Replacing gameboy advance sp screen

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.
