Is there any fix for the GBA screen. It is an absolute disaster - it is so dark I cannot see a thing. Is there any way to brighten the screen. I bought a magnifier with lights but this really is not sufficient. It is a great system but it is not much good if you can't see the thing!! I have searched message boards and do not find this to be a topic of conversation for which I am surprised - maybe my settings (what settings??) are incorrect! Please help.

Gba is from a time when they didn't have a backlight in handheld games. It has a front light meaning, You have to play it in a well lit area in order to see the screen, or tilt it towards light, or you can buy a little light adapter to clip onto the top if it. After Gameboy advance they came out with a newer Gameboy advance with a backlash instead of front light. You obviously have the order one. Don't waste your time with the little contrast button on the back. You will still have to sit near a window to play it or in a place with light.

How to make the screen bright???? I can't see any thing
There is a secret contrast on the back of GBA. Just pull the gray sticker off and there is a little tiny hole that is the contrast. I would not mess with it though it might ruin your GBA. I herd this from someone in the other forum idjejs.
