    I need if possible:

    A list of supplies
    instructions
    maybe a video

    On how to backlight a gbc's screen.
    I'm trying to get my lime green gbc back in the fray.

    Here's one I'm going to attempt soon.

    Materials:
    -A Game Boy Color
    -A GBA SP (Make sure the model is AGS-001, not AGS-101); try to get one with a cracked screen
    -A bit of wire
    -Soldering iron
    -A 47? Resistor (a bit less or a bit above won’t hurt a thing)
    -A phillips screwdriver (The + head)
    -A tri-wing screwdriver (Like the + head, but with only 3 parts instead of 4)
    -Wire cutters or other cutty things

    I have a box of cracked GBA SP screens in my house in Ottawa, so I'll be trying this out in June when I get back there.

    WONDERFUL!!!!!!
    Thank you.

    Tell me how yours goes via here or pm.

    And if you get it working I might buy or trade you something for a busted screen [​IMG].

    I liked the finish, stock on the outside, hardcore on the inside [​IMG].
