    Hello everyone, first post! I'll get to my account details after this post to kill some time.

    I have a Lightboy which is an accessory for the Original GameBoy and I haven't the slightest idea
    how to open it up (Teardown). It only has 2 screws and it's to hold the magnifier case which is a seperate
    piece. The reason I want to fix it is to change the magnifying lens and fix the metal contact because it does
    not make contact anymore with the other peice to make it light up properly. Here are some pictures
    I took of the accessory. It does not look like a plastic pinned in and locked from inside either. I tried to pry it
    and the result was almost breaking an inside plastic pin. Does anyone have any idea?

    This above picture is the metal where it makes contact with the 2nd peice.
    Sorry for the bad quality pic, it's a fake HD camera, it says HD but it's just overpixelated. (4000x3000)

    If it has no screws and can't be pried easily, it probably is glued together. You might be able to take it apart, but it'll probably be a mess to put back together.
