Nintendo Game Boy Original DMG-01/Pocket Bivert Chip & Backlight Mod Kit
Photos show biverted backlights. This listing is just for the backlight, wires, bivert chip and polarization film. The LCD and motherboard are not included.
Built in customized resistors, per color, for EXCELLENT CONTRAST and EASY INSTALLATION.
Adhesive positioning strip to keep the backlight in place.
SUPER DIFFUSION - minimal "hot-spotting" and extremely even light distribution.
Flexible printed circuit board - no cutting of the LCD frame required.
Installing a backlight naturally reduces perceived contrast of the display. To address this we recommend installing a HEX INVERTER / BIVERT MOD to get the best results.
Make sure that you install the polarization film the right way up - with the curved/concave side facing the LCD (UP) and the side that has a blue stripe on the protective film facing the backlight panel (DOWN).
Remove the protective film from BOTH SIDES of the polarizer and from the FRONT of the backlight panel.
Use the adhesive strip located on the back of the panel to fix the backlight in place. Position as flat as you can to the bottom side of the LCD frame - this ensures that the reflector bar (the dark area in the lower section of the backlight) is straight and sits below the bottom row of pixels.
This backlight is compatible with the Nintendo Original Game Boy DMG-01 and Game Boy Pocket. It is NOT compatible with the following models: Game Boy COLOR, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Advance SP, Game Boy Micro and Game Boy DS.
This listing is for one kit.
