Topic: GBA SP Screen won't show anything.

Posts 1 to 2 of 2


Hello there, I am in need of some advice, because apparently no one on the internet has had this problem before. So, I have a cobalt blue AGS-001 Model GBA SP, and it powers on and plays games, but the screen does not show a single thing. If you bend the screen back far enough it shows the screen, but if you stop, the screen goes blank again. I think it's a contact problem with the screen, but I have no idea. Plus, the light will not come on at all, but I think that's because I may have spilt pop on it like over a decade ago. I have not opened it up yet, but I am just looking for guidance first. What could be the way I can fix this? It means a lot to me and I want to play on it again.



You're better off just buying a new system. The AGS-001 (non-bright models) are cheap and you can find many that are refurbished on eBay for about $100 or so. Try OfferUp, Mercari, and mostly your local game stores to get a new one.
