Original screen for DMG-01

Post by Rockridge » Fri Aug 10, 2018 11:03 am

Having trouble locating a a screen foe my original gameboy. The current screen has a scratch. The lense came off a while ago.

Anyone know where I can buy one? Ebay seenlms to have every gameboy sxreen except the original.

If not available, is there a fix for the glass or a way to replace the glass?
Thx

Or an original grey plastic one that is cheaper.

I need the screen, not the lense/screen protector.

Ok. So no where sells the screens? If not then is it easy to reinstall a new piece of glass. Gonna do some research on glass replacement only. If I find something good I'll post a link.
Thanks

You can replace the front polerizer on the screen which will get rid of the scratch
