    i was looking through my country's equivalent of ebay and found a good condition GBA SP (ags-101) for 1200 pesos (~31,22 dollars), no charger or games included, is it worth picking up?

    Depends what is causing them.

    If it is just a dodgy connection between the ribbon and the connector then no and it might be fixed by opening it up, wiping off the connector and putting it back in. If it is an internal flaw with something inside the screen debonding then possibly.

    As far as good price. We can probably go through the things you recently got thread and find half a hundred yard sales, swap meets, car boot sales, facebook group sales, clueless sellers and more besides selling them for next to nothing but if you are going to spare yourself the hassle of a search and buy straight from ebay that is a good price presently for a working one. What I might do for one with horizontal lines is a different matter (though I know I could fix it/replace the screen if needs be, and no have to worry too much about retrofitting brightness controls or whatever like you do on other models)

    its not really ebay, its an ebay equivalent (mercado libre), im buying it to actually use, yard sales tend to be purely clothes where i live, all the others you mentioned dont happen or also tend to be merely clothes, as for what im planning on using it on, i just want to get an everdrive from actual ebay and play games, mainly pokemon

    Better hope those lines aren't an issue with the LCD itself requiring replacing the whole LCD, then you're basically back to square one...
    Otherwise, that seems like a good price.
    Get an EZFlash Omega instead and save yourself some money. ;)

    an ez flash omega is >90 dollars after taxes if you buy it on actual ebay, and not available on mercado libre, i just bought tetris worlds and a pokemon emerald repro on real ebay, i may end up getting this one: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Supercard-...761636?hash=item2f1ced1224:g:XLUAAOSwa~JbLgKx and expect it to be >40 after taxes, if im lucky
