After a while of searching I was able to find bad enough Game Boy for my restoration videos only for $2. Usually I have to pay a little extra for the worst items. The console was sold as junk and for spares but pretty much everything except the speaker is broken. The mother board doesn’t power on. The shell is badly yellowed. Stickers are in terrible condition and the screen is badly burned. I will try to restore this fully rather than use it as spares for easier projects because I’d still have to fix most of the parts. The Gameboy T-shirt is no longer available. It was limited time only.
I started the restoration by trying to get the power on. First I tried to clean corroded the contacts but that was no use. The power switch was working fine which meant the board was bad. Luckily I was able to find the broken part with a second GB color I have. The connection from one battery terminal had broken quite near the terminal I soldered a wire between the spots that were supposed to have a connection and it worked. This might not always work because it might leave something out of the circuit.
The corroded terminal was hard to clean while it was on the board so I desoldered it and removed the corrosion with rust remover, after which it was plated with nickel. Nickel will protect it from corrosion to certain extent. Nickel plating tutorial: csvid.net/video/video-O3DCexCLoGQ.html
Now that I had power I could fix the screen. To fix “screen burn” I need to remove the burn polarizing filter and replace It with a new one. A sharp blade can be used to get the start but after that the filter will peel off by hand. Some of the glue will stay on the screen. I removed it with Isopropyl alcohol. All glue must be removed or the new polarizing filter will have bubbles. When putting a new polarizing filter on one must figure out which way the polarizing filter works best on the screen. It will only work at a certain angle.
I also removed the yellowing from the plastic shell which was supposed to be colorless. For this I used the same retrobrighting method as always. H2O2 and UV-light. Full tutorial here: csvid.net/video/video-jdWRsjnVD3s.html

Do you know what could be wrong? I have a GBC that won't display even with another screen which is fine. It gets power, seems to boot games I can hear the volume no problem, only screens won't work. It is an atomic purple GBC that is in very decent condition overall. I'd like to use it if I can fix it.

Just an FYI that works for me with glue residue, rinse a paper towel with water, and then stick it and form it to the surface with the residue, give it 25-40 minutes and then remove the paper towel, whatever residue is there will come off a lot more easier. It works really well for old, dried up residue, but you can use alcohol after and it'll work great for sticky wet residue as well. Will save you a bunch of effort.

When you used the soldering gun to loosen the first battery terminal, you then came right behind the soldering gun with another device that made a clicking sound. I thought at first it was nipping something from the tip of the terminal end that comes through the board, but maybe not? What was that second device?

@flamin cheetos shut up dweeb, he's right, this is a waste of money and pointless for anyone who doesn't run a repair shop. Trust me you don't even have the brain capacity to learn how to do this the amount of math you need to know just to work a multimeter outweighs any chance the average idiot youtuber would ever have of doing this from watching a video

@Fantasy R&R but not every one has that much damage or require that much repair and it doesn't have to look perfect as he makes it look but you also get the satisfaction of fixing it, so thanks for the comment but I don't need it, you could've just kept your ugly orifice closed

Then what’s the point? I work with electronics all the time, he used more than $40 of parts and more than $90 of equipment to do this, you could just buy a used Gameboy that works for $40-$90, this is literally the opposite of a bargain lol
