    Hi there, I've been wanting to backlight my partner's gameboy advance (original fat not sp) and I'm trying to get a brown tabbed screen since our gameboy requires a 40 pin connector and I'd like to avoid any screen issues when installing...

    Are these screens the brown tabbed screen in question that I would have no issues with?

    Any help would be much appreciated, thank you!

    The screen you have their is an IPS. It will work without any issues.
    If you want original a Nintendo original then the 101 is the screen your after

    Thank you for getting back to me so soon and for the picture comparison. I have been looking for a 101 brown tabbed screen but all I can ever find are the white tabbed (UK here) which is quite frustrating because I've read about multiple issues using that on a motherboard that requires a 40 pin connection.

    You don't have any idea where to get such a screen without butchering an old SP by chance?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Oh I just took in that you said the screen would work without any issues, that's everything I need to know, thank you VERY much!
