Buy a AGS-101 Model. People sell them for more even though theyre worth the same as the AGS-001 model. Mine is a AGS-101 model and its has the same problem but it is still as bright as the normal AGS-001 model when the brightness is up. :)

There are differences in the models that you need to look for. On top of the Game Boy Advance vs. the GBA SP there is also generation differences in the SP. If you have an early model AGS-001 it has side LEDs that light up the screen. There is a later model AGS-101 that has an actual back light making for a dramatic difference between the two. Other then the model numbers there isn't much that differentiates the look between the two unless you know the colors that were release for each model but that doesn't always work either.
I had though that there was something wrong with one I picked up at a game show but I only discovered later that there were these small differences in the SP line. Now I know what to look for if I'm buying more. Also surprisingly a lot of this is on the wikipedia page although thats the last place i go for trouble shooting.

My GBA SP wont charge


The lead or plug on your charger may be cracked. I have a SP charger but it has a bit of the plastic cracked off and has to be in a certain position to work properly. Otherwise you will need a new battery.

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 off.


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?
