Bloody horizontal lines

Recently my virtual boy began to display parasit horizontal lines. I know that it could be fixed by warming up some pieces but nobody told if it worked after trying. So ?

Yep, mine got them too, but it usually stays fixed w/ a little tap or lightly hitting it on the floor.

I know this page, thanks ^^
I did not open my VB so I did not see how the rubber is attached to the cable but wouldn't it work with a soldernig ? Actually, I don't understand why the bad connection between a piece of plastic and the cable makes the lines appear.

Once you open it up and turn the adjustment knob on the VB you'll see how it makes the lines appear. The ribbon cables just get a little loose and that causes a bas connection. Soldering would be way difficult. I talked to DogP about it once. I hop you get yours working right again. When I did the oven trick on mine I adjusted the knob so that there is no tension on the ribbon cables and that woks out for me but I don't let anyone else asjust it. Good Luck!

I haven't encountered the 'lines' issue yet, but it seems fairly common, so I'd best stay on my toes.
