15 thoughts on “GameCube with built in screen

  1. Actually I bought something exactly like this. It had a cold cathode backlight, and I didn’t know anything about electronics, so when it stopped working, i tightened all the screws. Now I know those were POTs and my colors were all fucked up, and then one thing breeded another and I lost everything… O.o

  2. It looks like he took a PS1 screen and made it fit a game cube,,,The trouble is, the same company made a ps1 screen, a xbox screen, and a game cube screen. All with the same 4″ LCD, but in a different case to fit each console. Nice hack I guess, but no need if you could buy the gamecube screen for the same price as the ps1 screen / less than the cost of the hack.

    I bought one of the game cube screens back in the day to use as a monitor for my first car pc. It was black and square, very clean looking, and matched my dashboard very well. Also, the hinge made it fold flat for when i parked, or didn’t want a monitor in my way.

  3. I bought a clip-on screen for my GC that went right through the handle and had short power and video piggyback connecters built in, all for $30. Seems like this is a waste of effort for no good reason but that it can be done.

  4. Once bought a cheap Joytech clip-on screen for a gamecube because it had normal audio & composite video inputs (I didn’t own a gamecube). Turned out it was an STN type screen – utterly dire refresh rate resulting in terrible smearing – so I dropped it on eBay and got more than what I paid for it (and a positive feedback to boot).

    If you can hack a decent screen on for less than it costs to buy a pre-made one and you have the time+skills, then why not :)

  5. Hey, don’t be so quick to hate on hacks involving PSOne screens. They’re cheap, plentiful, relatively high quality, and easy to work with. They’re fun to hack around with :)
