We've all heard of the failed LED displays on Virtual Boy systems...
..the various fixes of gluing, 3D printing hold brackets, melting the original cable, etc...

But isn't it time for a permanent foolproof solution?



Click Here for more info or go to:

https://segasonicfan.wixsite.com/retro/virtual-ribbon

This custom PCB and ribbon cable replacement set will make your Virtual Boy even better than a sealed, brand new system.




See links above for details :)
PM me here or Contact Me to pre-order yours!
I can also solder / install onto PCBs that are sent in (for a limited time, anyway)

Taking pre-orders for the first batch of units. Depending on how many people sign up I expect ~1 month lead-time before shipping them out.

Special thanks to user RunnerPack for providing the awesome font!

Awesome. About time we had a ribbon replacement solution again! What made you decide to do the 2 boards at 90 degrees design versus your original design where you just had one board with a socket on it?

that's pretty sweet! I might be interested in getting one of those for myself, especially since this is the only one out there now, and it looks great! :)

Thanks for the kind words :) The short answer is durability - I could've made a single PCB solution, but it would likely develop problems over time, especially since the cable would be rubbing against the bottom of the unit.
I wanted to create something that would be absolutely permanent and foolproof, and I tend to be a perfectionist with my designs. V1.0 actually worked great, but I did three more improved revisions before releasing it to the public :)

Note, v3.0 install is slightly different (must put into the black frame first and solder)
