    Hi,

    I'm going to try to install a backlit screen to gameboy advance. I have a 40 pin version so I will probably have to do some soldering. I'm a beginner at this so what I'm wondering is how to power up the GBA and screen without having to reassemble it and insert the batteries? Do you need any equipment?

    Thanks

    You dont need to reassemble, you can just put the case on and pop in batteries

    Ok, thanks. As I said I'm a beginner so I guess I thought it was more complicated :)
