    I don't know if this is the right place to post this (sorry) but I need some help with a backlight mod on a GBA I plan doing sometime soon.

    The GBA I want to mod is an AGB-001 (32 pin-board). I don't know where I would be able to find any screens that would work with it. Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction to a place that sells backlit screens that can be put in? Thanks.

    EDIT: Would this one work for my AGB-001?

    I would suggest trying AliExpress for the AGS 101 lcd screen.

    Would an AGS 101 screen work though? I thought it was a different screen type that had to be put in since it's an AGB-001 model. Thank you though! I'll be sure to look into it.

    Yes, AGS 101 screen will work for it, but you will need the 32 pin adapter since you have the 32-pin board. Also, you will need to modify the agb 001 case in order to fit the screen.
    Not sure what is the latest revision of the board though. Maybe another temp member could add more information about it.
