hmm… thanks for that bit of info. I never opened one before, but that seller said that the bit would work so I just assumed that he was correct. I guess my 30 piece set will be useless if I ever need to repair my VB.
AFAIK, pretty much all the cases of bad displays can be attributed to loose cables. After a decade, you have to expect some problems with consoles.
Since I have yet to find a bit deep enough to reach the bottom screws, you need to make your own.
Basically, all you really need is a flathead screwdriver and a file. A Dremel or something may be easier, but not everyone has access to those kinds of tools.
Project: VB has an information about converting a screwdriver on the Disecting the VB page.
The following information comes from The Unofficial Nintendo Virtual Boy Home Page:
“As a final thought to open a VB it is necessary to notch a flathead screwdriver to fit over the security screws on the VB. There are two sizes (one on the VB and one on the cartridge) so two screw drivers will be necessary.”
It’s also suggested that once you have the VB open, you replace the screws with normal ones.
