Description :

This is a video record and tutorial of replacing the LCD of a original Game Boy (DMG-01) with a modern LCD assembly developed by BennVenn. Using PLC & MCU, the original graphic signal is converted to drive the new 3" LCD, which has much better brightness and contrast. Some shell modding was involved due to the larger size. A new screen cover lens was painted to fit the larger display window (optional). The yellowed plastic shell was also whitened using peroxide (optional). Thanks for watching. Also thank BennVenn and RetroModding.com for technical supports. This video version is an updated version based on BennVenn's comments.
