How long did you cook them (not the whole VB, I'm not so stupid) ?

The screwdriver named "Tournevis GC" is the one you can see on the picture I took (well, after beeing filed) and not the one on the picture available on the website.

Some of you will be happy ^^

You can find a special screwdriver here.
It's the "Tournevis GC" (Ref : GCTOURNEVIS) (and NOT the Access Pro Tool Kit V2, which does not work because it's not long enough).
Howerver, you will have to file the handle of the screwdriver, otherwise it won't be long enough, and in the end it should look like this :

Sorry, now there are just the lines...
And the rubbers don't seem separated from the cables...

Virtual Boy really is a fragile game system.
Afeter the flashboy, I suggest you create the unbreakable Virtual Boy.

The horizontal lines are still here... So I'm going to put the displays in the oven... I hope it will work
Strangely, the rubbers are not separated from the cables.

Holy shit ! My VB is dead ... Not only the lines display on the screen but now, the graphics drip... In galactic pinball, they look like a big pixels porridge.
Any suggestions ?
"somebody who lives in Europe and know how to fix it", would it be possible I send you my VB and you try to fix it, pleeeease ?

When I did the oven trick on mine I adjusted the knob so that there is no tension on the ribbon cables and that woks out for me but I don't let anyone else asjust it.


Are you saying there's a risk for the oven ?

I know this page, thanks ^^
I did not open my VB so I did not see how the rubber is attached to the cable but wouldn't it work with a soldernig ? Actually, I don't understand why the bad connection between a piece of plastic and the cable makes the lines appear.
