DMG V5 IPS Hispeedido | Install Guide
This is our install guide for the HISPEEDIDO V5 IPS mod.
- Soldering Iron
- PH1 screwdriver
- Y1 Tri-point screwdrive
- Double sided tape
- Game Boy DMG speaker (Harvesting your old one is fine!)
We recommend against using the included foam adhesive strips. We use double sided scotch tape adhesive instead as it allows easier removal if adjustments need to be made down the line. The included adhesive will likely damage the IPS display if you attempt removal. Use the included adhesive at your own risk.
Ensure you have all parts incldued with this kit. See below.
Hispeedido V5 kit Includes:
- LCD control adapter board (Large front PCB)
- Ribbon for main board/LCD board (Large ribbon)
- IPS Panel (LCD)
- IPS control PCB (pre-connected to IPS panel for convenience - this is the small PCB)
- Small Ribbon
- Screen adhesives
- Alignment bracket
- Leave the main board in the rear housing. Removal is unnecessary.
Solder your speaker to the new IPS control board as shown. The polarity of these wires does not matter.
The unbranded V5 kit IPS comes pre-connected to the IPS control PCB. If yours is not already connected, connect the IPS panel to the IPS control board. This is easier done on a completely flat workspace.
Apply a small strip of double sided tape to the rear of the IPS control PCB. Stick the control board to the rear of the IPS panel as shown.
Connect the IPS assembly to the IPS control board as shown. Ensure the cable is fully inserted and close the latch to secure it in place. For both ports, the small ribbon cable should be pins side down when inserted into each one.
Apply a small strip of double sided tape to the larger portion of the IPS alignment bracket. Peel the protective film off of the IPS display and insert the IPS panel into the bracket.
If you are not using a pre-cut shell, see the cutting guide below. Englarging display area is not required for this kit, please disregard step 2.
Add all buttons and membranes to the front shell. Again, we recommend against using the included screen adhesive for this particular mod as the bracket does a wonderful job of holding the screen in position.
Line up the holes on the alignment bracket with the screw posts on the front shell. This should be a nearly perfect fit. Take your time to ensure everything sits flush against the front of the shell. Fold the IPS board into place and ensure the speaker is fitted properly to its cutout in the shell.
Check the adjustment wheel to ensure it sits properly in the shell. Trim any plastic that may be touching the wheel.
Install the 6 PH1 screws to hold the IPS control board in place.
Install the larger ribbon cable on the IPS board. This is a pressure-fit connector; some gentle force may be required to properly seat the cable.
Connect the IPS control board assembly to the main board via the larger end of the ribbon cable.
Replace the 6 Y1 screws on the rear housing.
Install some fresh AA batteries or a CleanJuice battery mod, and you're all set!
Rotating the control wheel adjusts the brightness. Press the control wheel in once to switch the color palette. Long press (five seconds) to enter the on-screen display mode. From here you can control various settings relating to color and battery level display.
