LIGHT ISSUE ON GBA SP

THE NEW LCD SCREENS FOR GBA SP DO NOT FIT PROPERLY IN THE CONSOLE. I AM HAVING TROUBLE WITH MAKING THE LED LIGHT SHINE THROUGH THE SCREEN PROPERLY. WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO FIX THE PROBLEM?

    I have found the same problem. Since these incorrect replacements don't really fit as is, I'm going to try and mount the new screen and LED screen into the old black plastic carrier. Not easy but doable. I also noticed the distinct lack of contrast and difference from the old screen. Of course these replacement units come with no return or refund. What a rip. Best to send it to Nintendo for $55 for repair.

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.

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.

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.

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.
