i tried to order that screwdriver at one point but they wanted more than $20 just to ship it to me.

which is the correct size gamebit for the vb? i think i would like to grab one and grind it down to take out the displays. i would like to take you up on that offer to just fix the displays.

cheers!

4.5mm is the right size. The costs are purely shipping costs, I do charge a fee for repairing the displays which is €30,-

I had one that both eyes just completely went out. So I gotta open it up and fix it. Luckly it was a spare I am selling.

My VB is going downhill fast... first lines on one eye. Then lines on the other eye. Then the right eye having stronger light at times. Then the right eye going "mirror mode" with itself... freaky stuff. I can't fix it myself... guess I'll have to find another one :(

I just bought a screw driver to fix one and the screw driver won'y fit down the last 4 holes to open the system up. There's a way to make you're own with a pen but the pen better be REALLY strong to act like a screw driver.

Easier : )
I still do repair displays by soldering them (thus a permanent fix, I also give you a guarantee) if people are interested.
