Laminated IPS screen for the Game Boy Advance SP (GBA SP) - 3.0 inch FunnyPlaying

This is the brand new 3 inch version just released in 2023. This kit drops into the FunnyPlaying SP shell available here. (No shell cutting required)

Install this backlit IPS screen with pre-installed laminated glass lens. The laminated panel means no dust and a more realistic display effect.

The screen can be installed in an original shell or an aftermarket shell with some trimming. We highly recommend the drop in FunnyPlaying shells here.

Install guide:


1. The logo is the full Game Boy. The image shows just Game.

2. OSD menu is available with the soldering of 1 wire. It has 4 different functions - Brightness, Colour, Display and Frames. The IPS screen will still work without these functions if you choose not to solder the wires.

3. Shell modification is required if you do not use a FunnyPlaying pre moulded shell here. 

4. A seperate glass lens is not required, as the screen comes with a glass lens laminated to it.

5. Please bench test your screen kit for faults before installation. A photo or video will be required for potential warranty claims. Any issues are to be reported before installing inside a shell or adhering to a gasket. Replacements will not be made for installed kits. Replacement screens are available here should you need one.

6. It is advisable to wear a static bracelet before installing the screen to avoid any potential shorts.

This was my first time modding any hardware and even looking at a motherboard so, naturally, I was a bit apprehensive. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy the entire process turned out to be. Not only was the screen delivered quickly, but the installation was also a not as hard as I expected.

I highly recommend giving it a try as the results are well worth it :)


Screen looks incredible and installed very smoothly
