kkabalka, I recommend plugging your VB into the wall and leaving it on for 24-hours; this has had success with fixing all and all display issues as the system gets hot and fixes itself. :)

Thank you yeah i had heard this on a youtube video so i tried it out and it worked, but i do have one more problem my ac adapter isnt working the VB will run fine (except display glitches once a month or so) on batteries but the ac adapter wont work. it has been like this since i got it wih the system a couple of years ago but ive never found an article on it. i have tested it with a volt meter and it says the wall tap is only putting out 3V any suggestions?

Thanks again!

The tap should only be a pass thru, I think your AC Adapter is the issue.

OK new problem now my left display is sometimes much brighter than the right making words unreadable and the background blend in with the foreground and sometimes glitched up image like in the photo then it goes back to normal then sometimes after a level ends the last thing you saw in the level will linger on the left display but supe bright and pixalated here are some pictures of the problem

(you cant tell from the pic but the display is bright to)

I bought one off Ebay a while back with what looks to be the same issue. I got it to tinker with for a good price. I ended up having to perform the dreaded "oven trick," but it has worked fine ever since. Check YouTube for videos on the fix...just be very careful. I actually found it more useful to preheat the oven and turn it completely off before setting the LEDs in there...otherwise, the oven may turn back on creating a hot "wind" or current that will fry it in a heart beat. (R.I.P. VB #2). :'(

Also, there is a UK Ebay seller with high quality screwdriver-like security bits that reach all the way down with no problem. Once you buy that one, youll never need another. It's high grade and magnetized too.

That is unmistakably the glitchy display problem, good news is that it is repairable, bad news is that you have to have a way to open the VB up and need to fix it.

Well, it finally happened; my VB got the glitchy display in both screens, I left it powered on for over 24 hours and it fixed nothing. I am so disappointed and if I tried to fix it myself I would likely kill my VB.

I am considering getting rid of my VB collection as I am not gonna buy another because I babied this one and it still happened.

Good news, I am gonna have my Virtual Boy repaired with the permanent soldering repair. So I am quite happy that it will be functional to the max afterwards.
