    Ok so I bought a modded original GBA AGB-001 system with a back lit screen (from a AGS-101) and its too dim. Is there any way to manually adjust the brightness? Unfortunately there isn't a brightness switch installed.

    If you open the gba there should be a circular shaped "thing" inside.
    Use a cross-screwdriver to rotate it.
    However do that VERY gently, you don't want to break it.

    Maybe you want to post a picture so ai can tell you exactly what I mean.

    I know about the pot lol but that only helps with the contrast not the actual brightness
