Im not sure if mine is a display error, or a mark on the right lense. please see my post regarding my problem. But either way, I would like to get mine repaired. I've found a guy in GB who can do it, but anyone in the US would help me out as I can't open this thing so shipping costs would be great if I could lower them.

I am glad it worked for you, but if you intend to play it often you should get the screens soldered because VB doesn't like constant play. :(


Yeah, I found a guy who will do the soldering on these forums. But I can't for the life of me get the vb open, so shipping all the way to Great Britain and back will make the whole process really expensive. So I'm saving up for that repair. Unless hopefully I can find someone in the US who can do that for me. We'll see.

Ok, cleaning the lens seems to have helped. I don't see the line as badly. Though I don't know if it was the cleaning or the focus adjustments I did. The right lense is the trouble maker. After cleaning and focusing a few times in a row, I seem to have fixed the issue. I'm hoping it was a dirty lense and not the focusing that fixed it. I'll keep you posted. I'll leave it cool off and play it again later and see what happens.

when i hold a really bright light up to the lense i can see imperfections in the plastic. i don't see dirt, dust, or anything like that. i do not know if there is a way to fix it. you problem could be dirt or dust, so try carefully cleaning the outside. i would recommend a 100% cotton t-shirt. do not use anything like paper towels or tissue as those are made with wood fiber. you can also clean dirt on the inside but you would need to take the vb apart.


Only thing is... it's a perfectly straight horizontal line. I mean, you could be right. It could make sense it's on the lense. Next time I boot up the VB I'll see if the line is only in one eye. But like I said, it's perfectly horizontal, and only visible in certain games. But it does "move" when my head moves. I donno. I don't have the ability to open the VB. I know I was going to have to send it in for "repair" eventually, I just thought I'd have more time. I really hope this isn't the ribbon going bad.

i have two black lines in my right eye that i can notice on backgrounds with lots of red. i see it in wario ware, during the intro of panic bomber, and others. the lines move as i move my head/eyes. if i back away they get smaller, if i move closer they get larger. i've come to the determination that they are on the red plastic lenses.

does this describe what you are experiencing?

try some compressed air in the slot and around the contacts of the carts. once its cleaned keep a cart in the slot at all times, its the only way to really keep dust out.


Yes that's EXACTLY what I'm describing. The look smaller when I move my head back and move with my head. Right in the freakin center :(. What should I do?

Thanks for the tip on how to clean the games...

I have a weird issue going on with my new VB. It works perfectly fine on some games like Mario's Tennis. Others, like Wario Land and Teleroboxer I seem to have a line in the middle of the screen. The odd thing is that if I move my head, the line moves. So it doesn't seem tied down to any pixels on the actual screen. I appears one some games, and others not. And I'm extremely confused. It's right in the center.

Is this a display issue or dirty cart, or what? I wouldnt even know how to clean these carts if I wanted to. I have a Galactic Pinball that won't boot up and don't know what to do.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I got a Genesis Model 1 adapter today and it works like a charm :). Everything about this is in tip top shape and I'm so thrilled with it. The picture looks great as well.

Excellent find DaytonaUSA! I wish more Ebay sellers would actually reveal the serial numbers in their Virtual Boy system auctions. It's actually a strong selling point for us Virtual Boy enthusiasts.


Yeah, I didn't know until I opened the box! hahaha
