What can I do about my Gameboy Advance's dark display?


Answer by  mooman2679 (1018)

There are a lot of aftermarket lights you can buy to plug into the port on the top of the system.

Unfortunately, the Gameboy Advance on its own has a fairly dark display screen. One thing that can be done to fix this is purchase an attachment that will both magnify and light the screen. It will attach to the device and help with low light.

play in a well-lit area. Natural sunlight near a window or outdoors works great, too, as does playing near a lamp, etc. A light source that is above or behind the player will maximize the brightness of the game. Different viewing angles also gives the best results.

The dark display on the Nintendo Gameboy Advance is is a function of the display technology, so nothing can be done about it directly. The easiest solution is to change your lighting environment. There are also be third-party lights that attach to the screen. The most extreme solution is installing lighting under the screen yourself, but this is difficult.

Turn the brightness up on the settings. It may also be the age of the device that is causing the darkening. Maybe sending it back to the manufacturer to get them to install new bulbs may help.

You can try adjusting the screen resolution by turning the dial on the left side of the unit. They also sell new screens for replacement if yours is going out.

You can play or store your Gameboy Advance in better quality, or even natural light. This will enable the screen to reflect more light, and therefore take in more light to brighten up the screen.

There are many ways to improve the display but the easiest is a worm light. These will plug in easily and brighten your display. However, the worm light will drain the battery more quickly.

There is an adjustment on the side that will increase brightness. If this is not enough light, you can buy a light adapter for the GBA.


Answer by  tenritsu (51)

Gameboy Advances have a dark display due to the fact that there is no backlight. To alleviate that, you could buy one of those light accessories that hook up to the GBA.

Your best bet is to check the side of the system and see if the lighting slider is set to low, otherwise play somewhere well lit.
