PLEASE CONTACT ME BY EMAIL! janevgen@sbcglobal.net

If you message me here i wont see it. I’m always actively repairing VB consoles! The day i stop i will let everyone know.

over 1000 Virtual boy consoles repaired between PlanetVB Videogamesage here and ebay! with a 100% satisfaction rate and 5 years experience!

I use high grade hakko solder equipment with a micro soldering iron, microscope, and leaded solder to repair your console! I’ve been soldering for over 16 years!

If you have further issues with your console pm me. I can fix and or replace more than just the displays.

~~(Price for solder fix)~~

55 USD by Paypal will cover one virtual boy console and or both displays. Shipping cost details are below. If you have two consoles its 110 dollars

I’ll also clean your console and shine it up as a free bonus.

~~(Return Shipping cost in USD and packing instructions)~~

1 VB console with 200 insurance is (17.99) USPS medium flat rate. (no insurance is 14.99)

2 VB consoles 400 insurance is (26.99) USPS large flat rate. (no insurance 22.49)

Displays: with 200 insurance is (10.99) USPS small flat rate. insurance increases per pair of displays. (no insurance 8.49)

Displays (basic shipping): bubble mailer in a cd case well packed, no insurance 4.99

I can also do free local pick up.

If you prefer a different shipping method let me know.

A console fits in a usps medium flat rate and 2 console in a large flat rate box.

Displays can be wrapped in anti static plastic or paper towels and put in a cd case and then mailed in a bubble mailer or in a small flat rate box.

The 4.5mm nintendo screwdriver to take apart your console is dirt cheap if you want to save some money via shipping. it can be found on ebay for as little as 4 dollars. (only get the screwdriver not the bit)

SHIPPING DISCLAIMER:

I highly recommend you insure your Console/displays. its extremely rare anything will happen but If your console/displays gets damaged or lost in shipping will not cover your item! I am not responsible for what shipping does with the package once its out of my hands.

Please only send your head unit. the visor can be removed by pulling on it. don’t forget your game in the console.

I can get the repair done with in a week of receiving your console.

~~(Contact)~~

janevgen@sbcglobal.net is my direct contact.

PM me with the title (VB repair and your name) so i can send you my information to get the repair process started with you.

Having this repair done will greatly increase the lifespan and value of your console. All non fixed VB consoles will fail over time. My work can be seen below. thank you for your interest!

Ahh so it’s an on board thing, kind of like how someone would tinker with a pot wheel for consoles like with optical drives and what not. I could see how that could be a time suck, but far better than wasting time and money with replacement parts if it’s something of that sort. So that is good to know.

I have an as is VB coming in. If it needs repair I will hit you up.

Alright 😛 thank you for your interest!

Just an FYI im still fixing consoles and dont plan on stopping any time soon. i get that question alot. so just wanted to clear that up 😛 PM me if you want your console fixed!

Another satisfied customer. Nesfreak fixed 8 lenses for me, all look spectacular. Clearly he’s a pro, and all 4 units work great (dare I say even better than before the glitching occurred)
Send him your lenses. Don’t second guess it. Just do it.
Thanks again Dave!

I just received my repaired VB back. I can’t express what a great job Dave does. My screens scan lines are totally fixed and are crystal clear now. Thank you so much!

ime been out of town for 5 weeks now. im back and ready to fix more consoles 😛

I don’t suppose anyone has the low-down on anyone that does these repairs in Australia?
My VB unfortunately started having an issue with one display flickering but has now gone completely blank also 🙁 Sound/controller are fine.

Would love to know if there’s anyone in this part of the world fixing them up, I assume postage to the U.S.A. would be horrendous 🙁

My Virtual boy is acting up. I do not see any 3D depth. I noticed if I close one eye I do not see an image. If I close the other eye I see an image.I am unable to open it because the hole with the screw is to long for a screwdriver. I am not explaning the problem well probably. I would happily send it in for repair to someone. Nintendo is no longer excepting them for repair. Can I get the info on how to send this in for repair here.
