Thanks, but I can't take the credit for the idea. There are other posters on here who have done this before with equipment they had laying around. I didn't happen to have a spring arm around the house so I figured out the cheapest way I could do it and it ended up working pretty well. It's kind of funny though, as soon as I finished this, the VB that you see in the pictures got the glitchy screen problem.


Oh, no! That's terrible! :[ Yeah, the Virtual Boy I ordered off of eBay last month got damaged during shipping, so the left eye gets really wonky during Mario's Tennis, but just gets horizontal lines in Wario Land. Weird. The seller swore up and down that he didn't ship me a broken product, so thanks, UPS. ini

The seller probably didn't lie to you, the glitchy display problem is due to a loose ribbon cable so sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The seller probably played it for a few minutes and deemed it good, even though the problem was still there. My guess is probably over half of the VB's have developed the glitchy display problem. I was thinking about offering a cheap repair service but I don't know if I have the time.

Nice job! Looks to make the whole VB experience MUCH more enjoyable than with the standard setup. Sucks that it went glitchy on your afterwards :/
