modified gba with backlit screen mod

modified gba with backlit screen mod

I made another modified gameboy advance with a backlight – this time it was for a present for my brothers birthday.

I ordered the original gameboy advance, a new case, transparent buttons and a new backlit screen and an adaptor ribbon for the screen from ebay over the last few months. The screen was sent from china, so took a few weeks to get here.

Once all the parts had arrived I took the motherboard from the original gameboy advance and started the modifications

I had a wee helper for some of the build :D

at this point I actually broke the ribbon cable, so had to order a new one – the replacement didnt need soldering :)

The screen was pretty washed-out

 

so I did the same pin-103 to GND mod as I have on my other gba and the result was this:
