    in my old gba sp i have a weird green line on the left of the screen that i ignored for long but i want to know how to remove it or what caused it
    i didn't do anything weird
    i just got it while playing duel masters sempai legends(retail)
    and it kinda annoys me in pokemon emerald and i want it to seem perfect

    It's probably a crack or defect on the LCD screen. It's not 'fixable' in any real way unless you want to crack it apart and replace the screen. You can find replacement screens on ebay for fairly cheap. You do need a tri-wing screwdriver to take the GBA apart. Look online to see instructions and see if you feel comfortable doing it.

    Its probably the E-cable.
    I had alot of problems with it.
    You just need to take it out and clean it properly.
    I recommend to look for a GBA SP dis-assembly guide so you won't break the e-cable (cause it breaks really easily)

    Don't forget to use a tri-winged screwdriver!
