I’ve been doing a lot more gaming than anything else recently so thought I’d do a little post on this.
My hardware of choice right now is the Atari Lynx. The only thing that lets the Lynx down for me was the screen. Anyway A guy known as McWill found on the AtariAge forums makes an LCD replacement so I took the plunge and ordered one.

Installation was a little time consuming but definitely not difficult. I found the hardest part was dealing with the Lynx unit itself, it gets a little awkward reattaching the flex cable.
For some reason I never took a picture of the replacement itself so ill just show the before and after screenshots.


Im very impressed with this thing. Pressing the backlight button will switch on/off scan lines too which is a nice touch.
Ill definately be getting a lot more use out of my Lynx now.

Thanks to McWill for this. Delivery took just a few days (from Germany to UK) and was very well packed.
Game Gear is next on my list when funds permit.

  1. Wow this is VERY impressive. I’ve heard there is a similar replacement for Gamegear as well. I’m really looking forward to trying both.

  2. Nice 🙂 does it also make batteries last longer?
