  Hello guys n' gals....

 

 

 I have a DMG Gameboy with a screwed up LCD.

 

 The right part is darker than the left and it has a horizontal line.... (I think I bent the H/V ribbon cables too much...)

 

 Could it be replaced???

 

 The LCD is custom, but I have been able to find simmiliar screen sizes and resolutions on the 'Bay...

 

 I'd try to get a Gameboy Pocket LCD if I could find them.

 

 Probably a Color/Advance LCD wont fit?

 

 Any options?

 

 Thanks....... Al.

 UPDATE: The screen is toast. I have removed it from the Gameboy....

 

 Either I can replace the screen with one from another DMG, Pocket.... Or?

 

 And this is a board that was replaced by a fully functional top board. This is from a parts GB that only has a bad screen... Nothing else.

I'm not sure you can interchange screens between models, pretty sure you can't for those like you can with the GBA stuff with a ribbon adapter, but you could throw another in there from an otherwise dead DMG GB.

 I don't have another dead DMG nor do I have intentions of starting a chain reaction in which I repair every parts console I have....

 

 This is my parts Gameboy w/ a bad screen. I have heard that people have successfully shoved GBP lcds into a DMG.

 

 GBC lcds are cheap.... 

 

 Thanks for the info. I

 

 really do appreciate it.
