    Hey guys,

    So I got a replacement shell delivered for an old GBA SP I had laying about. Pulled it apart, seated it in the new housing, put everything back together, and now I have a major issue.

    Basically I boot the console up and everything is fine, and then about 1-3 minutes of play, the screen goes interlaced, before filling up half way with nothing but white, the image flips, and still plays but the game is upside down and missing half the screen.

    Here's a video:



    At first I thought it was the screen ribbon, but if it was badly damaged I severely doubt it would be displaying a fine image for those first 1-3 minutes.

    Anyone else have any ideas? This is what it looks like after it bugs out - http://imgur.com/ZpvVTFS
