Since there is a product on the market (or was?) that can do something like this using the cartridge slot, it is possible...
This was just the first thing I found.

I'm glad you asked that, because I never considered it... I've been trying to either track down somebody willing to part with their movie adaptor, find somebody who still sells them for less then the original price (ebay etc...) or find any plans anyone posted that would allow me to make one (even if I have to have an 'ugly box" under my SP.

Somewhere in the system there is a video driver for the display - This will somewhere have an input where the data enters. The problem is you probably want to put composite video in and this may not work - The only way is to dismantle (with no expectation of getting it working again) and experiment with putting video into the various pins.

You may find a chip number that allows you to find a data sheet fr the video driver chip.

You might be able to wire something DIY style but I'm not entirely sure its even possible... What I do know is there is NO cable that you can buy to connect a GBA to a TV. The only way you could is with a Gamecube and the GBA connector base, but Nintendo stopped making the Gamecube and games, so you might be out of luck.
