Due to a bad design choice made by Nintendo, every Virtual Boy will sooner or later suffer from faulty displays that show horizontal or vertical lines or are messed up in other ways. This is due to the cables leading to the displays being held in place by glue rather than proper solder connections. In case your Virtual Boy shows the typical symptoms, here's a list of nice guys who offer their services to permanently fix your console(s) by soldering the display cables.

Good one to have stickied! I do still repair them and probably will indefinitely.

Feel free to add me to the list as well for the USA. I've done a couple units and would be more than happy to help other members out.

I'm willing to do this repair in exchange for Virtual Boy games and accessories. If you have any of the following laying around:

VB controllers (working or not)
VB games (working or not)
VB game dust covers
VB eye-shades
VB stands
VB AC adapters
VB battery packs
Anything VB!
I would also gladly trade for Game Boy games and hardware.

I could do it for money, but I'm just going to spend it on this stuff anyways. So just toss this stuff in when you mail your VB or ribbons! Send me a PM and we'll work something out. I'm located in the US.

I have two VBs that I had repaired. I sent one to TheForce81 and the other to HP Lovethrash. It's been over 2 years and they both work great. Thanks guys!

Just wanted to publicly thank TheForce81 for fixing my VB screen. I found him and this forum searching for a screen fix.

I am looking for some help in fixing a non-functioning unit, located in London.

Krisse this is for your old unit that you sold me a long time ago. I'd like to get it working but don't know where to start! I tried to buy a loose unit from eBay and just use that but they're all advertised as non-working and I'd rather give some spend and support to a community guru that better understands these fine machines :)

TheForce81 I will send you a request in the hope you can help me out - thanks! :)

What's not working?
I wager between getting the lenses soldered and this:
