FunnyPlaying Game Boy Color (GBC) Screen Kit - Retro Pixel Q5 Display

The screen display area is 25% larger than the original. This Q5 IPS screen will enhance your enjoyment of this popular handheld. Utilising the same 5 awesome built in retro display effects as the DMG and GBP screens, this allows you total control over the pixels shown during gameplay.

To install this kit there is basic soldering required. The larger screen also requires some shell modification to account for the larger viewing window.

What is included;

  • 1 x IPS LCD Screen
  • 1 x ribbon cable (FunnyPlaying)
  • 1 x 3M fixing pad
  • 1 x foam pad
  • 3 x wires
  • 1 x touch ribbon cable

Whats not included;

Larger Q5 size glass lens.

RetroSix Q5 Shell.

Tape to prevent possible shorts. We recommend Kapton tape.


1. The original power management of the GBC motherboard is very inefficient. This ribbon bypasses the inefficient power management and has its own within the ribbon. This means that a power cord needs to be soldered from the third pin down from the switch to the ribbon.

2. We recommend the RetroSix Q5 shells. This screen is drop in and no shell modification is required.

3. The original GBC display is 43 x 41mm. This display is 49.5 x 44.5mm.

4. The start and select buttons control the brightness and retro pixel modes.

Start and touch = increase brightness

Select and touch = decrease brightness

Start and select together = change the retro pixel display

5. Please test your screen kit for faults before installation, photo or video will be required for potential warranty claims. Any issues are to be reported before installing inside a shell or adhering to gasket. Once stuck down it will not remove without damaging the screen or the ribbon. See this handy guide detailing How To Test Your Game Boy Color Screen Before Install.

6. It is advisable to wear a static bracelet before installing the screen to avoid any potential shorts. We also highly recommend insulating the PCB with Kapton tape as any contact with the PCB could prevent the screen from working correctly.
