When one part of it works another stops
Both screens worked, then they didnt
Sent them off to Theforce, one was to figged to work
Asked and got sent another off Minestorm (thanks again)
Now that one has the problem and the fixed one now seems to be goring wrong
Streaks? cant see any dust on either the PCB, glass or mirror, works fine in the other, (Also the display is getting glitchy)

Is it possible to just hard solder the PCB directly to the connector to do away with all this ribbon cable nonsense?

Or failing that, does anyone have 2 working PCBs they will sell to me?

How much do you charge to fix them (and how much would postage be both there and return)

How do again

Im having another problem with my Virtual Boy
Now its one of the screens starts glitching out during the game, tried my three games and every one is the same

Do I have another nacked screen PCB?

It already looked like it had a blank line that moved about

Starting to think that mine dont want to be played

Yup I had a poke about already, also took it apart to see what im dealing with and its as I fared, waaaay to small for me

(that three quid Nintendobit has severed me well in the past year)

The guy in the Netherlands hasn't logged on in months, would be nice to have it fixed for a gaming night in February, then it might end up going round the UK to various other gaming things at museums

No idea how much it would cost to ship it to the US
That reminds me, I need to pick up a copy of Tetroboxer, seems like the best game to have out at such things

Mine works great apart from a horizontal line is blank on one screen

Anyone in the UK that can fix this or is sending it to France or the Netherlands the only option
