I just got my Virtual Boy last week from eBay, it came with the system, stand (with a crack in it..) controller (w/batt. pack) and wario land. I was happy with it, even though I don’t have the eye cover. I noticed soon after playing it, that the lens on my left side was giving me some kind of scan lines. it only appears on that side, if i close my left eye, i don’t see them anymore and if i close my right eye i see them more clearly. any ideas what the heck is wrong with my system!? I am getting frustrated because it makes my eye REALLY hurt (only the left eye) after playing for like 5 min! I also just got marios tennis and I cant enjoy that game either due to the same problem so I know its not the games, but it is the system. any help will be much appreciated, THANK YOU!!!! :thumpup:
Yup… that’s the typical flex cable problem where the cable that attaches the display to the motherboard begins to peel away from the display PCB. Unfortunately there’s no simple fix… the best way I’ve come up with is opening the system up, removing the display, sticking it in the oven to re-melt the adhesive, and reassemble.
It’s not a difficult procedure, except that the typical security bit can’t get to the deepest screws on the VB, so you either need a modified bit, or modify a screwdriver.
