    It’s not mentioned here, but be sure to unplug the LCD flex cable at the top of the motherboard before removing the motherboard. To do so, gently press the clips on either side of the receptacle toward the top of the Game Boy. When they are both pressed up, the orange cable will slide freely out

Thank you for your information on repair of my color game boy.

just two things.

1. I had a hard time with the removal of the screws. Any tip on that would be helpful.
