Introduction: Game Boy Color Teardown

A few years ago I took apart my Game Boy Color, but didn't do anything with it. I thought by posting this maybe someone can use this information. I might, if I get the time, do something with my Game Boy Color, but until then, here is the slideshow. I took these pictures with a decent camera, so I hope you like it!

This is also posted, with extremely high-quality pictures, on my blog.

    honestly i dont see a point to your comment as it simply sounds like bragging... if you left it as "OMG! i have the exact gameboy color as that! Its somewhere around here anyway... " it would have been a very funny comment and i would have said that... anyhow, hope your enjoying all your stuff. cheers.

    Theoretically, yes, but it wouldn't be of much use. You would have to get/make your own driver circuit.

    I just had a slightly chipped flathead lying around and used that. It stripped the screws a bit, but got the job done when I put enough pressure on it. You could look on ebay for a "tri-wing screwdirver." You should only have to pay a few dollars for it. You could also look elsewhere, just use Google (Nintendo tri-wing screwdriver). They open Nintendo devices easily.

    dealextreme has a triwing screwdriver for $0.85, it takes a while for shipping, but its worth it

    chipped flat driver worsk fine ,hint when screws out stick them in a vice and use a hacksaw to cut a proper groove (one at a time) bits often go wonky in them as they go back together so you end up having to open them up again

    Lime green gameboy strip tease. It's always interesting to see what's in them. I've been looking to buy some old ones, but I don't know where to look. I've tried craigslist, maybe when yard sale season comes around.

    You could always go back to the turn of the century and "borrow" one...
