Pocket LCD in Original Game Boy

Today I successfully installed a Game Boy Pocket(MGB) LCD(Liquid Crystal Display) into an Original Game Boy(DMG).
I cut a slot in the LCD PCB(Printed Circuit Board) above the ribbon cable to slide the ribbon cable through the PCB to make room for the MGB ribbon connector. I scraped off some of the solder mask and soldered the MGB ribbon connector on to the DMG LCD board using the ground tabs of the connector. 


I then strategically placed the wire along the board and glued it in place. At this point this board is no more difficult to install than a regular DMG LCD.


The best part is that I can replace this cancerous LCD with a new one just as easily as I could replace the LCD in an MGB.


And a Hand Held Legend backlight panel fits with no problem.


Thanks to the NeX and everyone else that figured this out! More information as well as how to do you own can be found HERE.

    1. Thank you very much. The dark spots are where the two layers of glass have separated just enough to let the liquid crystals leak out. This is commonly referred to as "LCD cancer" because it can't be fixed and will usually get worse over time. I decided to use a damaged LCD as this was my first attempt at this modification.

  3. That's awesome! Can you show some better pictures? I want to do that with my terrible condition defunct MGB with a fully functional LCD (with no cancer!!!), and my DMG because, well, so I can see the thing. And it would look better with a non-bivert backlight mod.

  19. A San Francisco Sightseeing Night Tours is a great way to discover the city after dark. You will locate excursions that range from cooling ghost strolls to our renowned sundown bay cruises to outings with food or beverages or both! One of my favorites is the night tour of Alcatraz. On this excursion, you get to see what it resembled to be inside this former federal jail during the night. Since they limit the people on the evening scenic tour, unlike throughout the day, you have even more room to move around and get a feel for the tales as well as events that happened there.
