    • Using the Phillips #1 screwdriver, remove the 3 screws shown in the picture.

    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.

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.

2. Where can I purchase replacement parts?

Thanks again for all of your help.
