    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

    Thanks Ben. That's a very good point. Just ripping it out will cost you a couple bucks, not to mention your Gameboy will not work until you replace that ribbon cable.

    • Insert new LED into the circuit board.

    • Make sure that the LED is in the correct orientation. The longer leg of the LED is the positive end, while the shorter leg is the negative end.

    • The positive lead should go through the hole closest to the edge of the circuit board.
