Remove the 6 screws on the back of the Game Boy system with a #00 Phillips Screw Driver.
Some Game Boys may have tri-wing screws securing the back case, rather than Phillips.
Place these screws in a safe place.
Be careful with these screws as they are easy to strip, and if this happens, they are almost impossible to remove.
At this point you may consider to just replace the entire front circuit board, as this may save time and money. Also it can be very tedious to replace the screen and may be easier overall. Otherwise continue with the guide.
Set the plastic outer case aside. Before you flip over the circuit board to reveal the screen, undo a few hooks on that side of the board that hold the screen in place.
DO NOT YET ATTEMPT TO PRY THE SCREEN FROM THE CIRCUIT BOARD
