    I don't really know, but for 1,70$ if you have the soldering skills required I think you can do nothing wrong

    It looks very similar... but will it fit for AGB?

    Those look like just ordinary tact switches so probably yes.

    Yes it would work, just make sure you don't desolder the metal base it is resting on.

    Picture of button: here

    It might eventually come lose, since it looks like the GBA buttons had short pegs sticking through the metal base.

    Thanks for advice :D I thought the metal base is part of switch.

    So... thank you all for reply - I will order it and tell you how it fits in AGB-001.

    did the button stop working?
    you can pull the rubber piece out and blow air into it and try to get it open and clean the metal circle contact

    my ags101 had the same problem, I added a paper shim so the trigger fully presses down on the rubber

    The metal base is what keeps you from snapping the buttons off the PCB when you repeatedly press the button over long periods of time.

    No they're working (but not perfect)... I want to full refurbish GBA (exactly 2 GBA) and change screen from AGS-101 in one. I also want to change rubbers, buttons, shell and tact switches :)


    Right, now I know. Thank you. I thought it is internal part of switch.
