Game Boy Pocket backlight

gameboy

[palmertech] and [Bibin] have both completed backlight projects for the Game Boy Pocket recently. The most difficult part of the transplant is carefully removing the reflective backing on the LCD. After a thorough cleaning, a diffuser and backlight panel were added. [palmertech] used a backlight salvaged from a DS, while [Bibin] built his own using LEDs. You can see his backlight in the video embedded below. There’s a disassembly video too.

    I think his name is “Bibin” eliot, not binbin.
    Shame his pictures aren’t showing up now though, his sounds good.

  2. @alex ~ fixed.

    Shame people don’t use a photo hosting service that actually hosts photos.

    I remember in the last days before gameboy advanced, we got hold of an imported japanese gameboy light. Pretty much the same thing here, but the light was greenish. Nice build, lame video.

    I love the Game Boy Light, I owned one for a few months. It had the best monochrome screen of all the Game Boys. The Game Boy Pocket is so blurry in comparison.

    This is palmertech, one of the guys who made this. It is so refreshing to get some credit for this, I got none on Engadget, and said so in the comments. I am thrilled that HAD does its research. :)

  8. Palmertech, don’t know if BenHeck is down – please e-mail me johnpgrayson at AOL dotcom. I don’t have your e-mail address.
