    Yep.
    I don't really have any big explanation for this.
    It's just pretty much impossible nowadays to have a DMG with a fully working screen.
    So here's my question:
    Where can I find replacement screens?
    Is it even possible to replace the screen?
    Every time I search for one, I find covers, but not the actual screen.
    Anybody know where I'd be able to get one?

    EDIT: Also, where would one find replacement buttons?
    I'm not having any sort of problem with the buttons right now, but if I ever do, or I just want to change the colors, that'd be cool.

    if you have a vertical line of dead pixels on your dmg (or a horizontal line on the gameboy pocket) read this thread. It describes a very easy method to repair a line of dead pixels. Actually that whole forum has tips on fixing, modding, playing with old gameboy hardware. And if it's beyond repair, check the sale thread and get a new one on the cheap.

    I have a couple vertical lines on the very left edge, and then a big thick line (also vertical) on the right side, that's just big enough to hide Mario in Donkey Kong '94. [​IMG]
    I'll see if anything on there helps.
    Thanks!
