Thanks to RunnerPack, my Virtual Boy display is as good as, actually, BETTER than new!

Runnerpack: if you have done/were to do a small run of these available for purchase as drop-in replacements, id buy some for backup.

I actually will probably be sending him another set of displays. Apparently the person before me tried to fix the virtual girl's display and today it crapped out and I took it out to find HORROR! lol

Wow, such kind words… thanks again, everyone!

@retro: I'd appreciate some photos of those others before you send them, just in case.

The problem is, the only broken ones I've seen for sale are $20 each, plus shipping. When I add enough to cover the repairs and related time spent, they wouldn't be very attractively priced. And that's not even taking into account the possibility of getting some with dead LEDs, which I'd probably have to sell at a loss, if at all. However, if you'd like to get some and have them sent to me for repairs, I'd happily oblige

I have quite a few with trashed cables I (perhaps foolishly) took in trade from clients, but I can't really afford to get replacement cables made in bulk – especially not knowing if they'd work, or how many I would end up selling – and I don't know where to get them made in smaller quantities.

No problem. It looks like they just gobbed solder on the thing. I can try and remove it with my soldering iron if you wanna see under it.

I only own 2 physical games Wario Land and Mario's Tennis and of the 2 I LOVE Wario Land. I've emulated a couple games on my Mac and out of those, Jack Bros. is another fun one.
