I mean I certainly am kind of torn. As a showcase piece it would be cool to have the unit functioning as intended. I am casting around for offers to do the solder fix right now. Do users here feel like that is a good long term solution for keeping the system up and running?

PlanetVB has an associated facebook group of sorts called Virtual Boy Fans Unite! and in there is a member Chris Snead. He will do the work for $10 an eye + return shipping. He does as good as anyone else can in doing the solder repair with a very fast turn around too.

I've done 3-4 few ebay rescues and have gotten a very high degree of sucess so long as the cable is still attached to the board and nothing else is damaged. I'm willing to do repairs for others. Go on and add me to the list. I'll charge $10 per display plus return shipping. See attached photo for an example of my work

Thank you to TheForce81 for soldering my VB ribbons. The games look so clear now. Great job!
