So hey. I'm a bit new around here, however throughout my exploration of your site, i have noticed that a lot of people seem to want to back light the Game boy Color, despite many people stating numerous times that this is not possible. i haven't really seen anyone showing picture proof or anything, so i figured someone should do this, and show the results of a back light on a game boy screen.
So all i did was take the metal casing off from around the screen, put my phone behind it for some light, and took a snapshot. nothing to big, just kinda figured id show anyone who was interested in the results of such an experiment. As you can see, the results are, well, lackluster. or lack-color
if nothing else, perhaps this little escapade of mine will keep some people from gutting perfectly good game boy color to no avail. And well, thats about all i got. Peace out yo!
P.S., the gameboy I used was already kind of destroyed by a friend, so I didn’t really harm it to much. the screen was like that before (nothing on the one side), and the speaker was shot. I’ll prolly just fix this on a rainy day or something. maybe as a tribute, I’ll even front light it
