Oh don't worry, OP. That's just the Amiibo reader.
>>
>>2906635
was something sitting on it? looks like the screen protector is pressed against the lcd.
>>
I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure the LCD is wasted, something's probably leaking or you left it out in the sun for too long.

Funny thing is that dead stripes are somewhat easy to fix on DMGs. Scratches too, the protector is piss-easy to replace.
>>
No, nothing was sitting on it, my gameboy was in my closet, never caught the sun, I think that was the climate changes

Anyway thanks for the answers maybe im gonna buy another gameboy

Get a triwing screwdriver and open it up. Your picture is a bit fuzzy, but there is a chance that it is just moisture trapped between the plastic cover and the LCD. Do you live somewhere humid and lack a dehumidifier in your house?
>>
>>2906635
Very common problem. Basically no fix except for a new screen. Which you obviously aren't going to manage.
>>
>all these dmg problem threads
It's like we don't have a repair/mod general.
>>
>>2906967
repair/mod doesn't translate well in to the native language of newfags who just snuck into a country with internet
>>
>>2907038
You're right to think that problem would correlate to repair as a resolution is a bit of a stretch.

>dmg
How long has this meme been around?
>>
>>2907158
Since the gameboy was invented?

DMG is the model Id number (DMG-01)

I can't believe anyone is this retarded. (By the way DMG stands for Dot Matrix Gameboy in case that was still too hard to figure out)

Probably he was mixing it with damage.

>people have always called the original gameboy the DMG ever since it came out
Uh, no. Nobody referred to the original gameboy by its model designation back when it was on retail shelves. The fact that your response is to explain what the designation stands for speaks volumes. You all sound like you either weren't alive back then, or you were too poor to have one as a kid. My guess is the first case, but either way, you clearly insist on calling it that because you read about it on Racketboy or are just parroting someone else who did. It would be like telling someone from Antiquity to call their time period that, even though they didn't back then. You're probably the same type of person who pronounces "NES" and "SHMUP" phonetically.
>>
>>2907451
Yeah, well back then there weren't as many versions of the gameboy as there are now (original, pocket, play it loud, light, color, advance, advance SP, micro).
Nowadays saying DMG is a quick way to accurately say which model you're talking about (the original).
Besides, here >>2907170 I wasn't saying that people called the original a DMG back then, but rather that DMG has always been a valid identifier.
It's kinda like if you have one screwdriver, would just ask for the screwdriver, but when you have many screwdrivers you would start asking for the type. IE: Can you hand me the small philips?

Nah, if I want to do that I just play the damn thing in public.

Except for the whole underage part. I can't fake that.

You must be ugly as fuck kid. I can pass as half my age with the right outfit.
>>
>>2908506
You can pass for a seven year old?

no one calls it the "DMG" they call it the "OG" faggots.

I just called it a game boy.

As has been said by someone else, there are now other GB models out there. When I was a kid of course I just called it a GameBoy since that was all that existed. Now there are the Light, the Pocket, and Color (and if you go into NR, the Advance, the Advance SP, and the Micro). In normal speaking, any of these could be referred to as a GameBoy and it wouldn't really matter. When it comes to technical issues like repair, it is important to refer to the specific unit type, and DMG is an easy shorthand to clarify that you are talking about the original unit and not one of the later models.

Of course you could just type GB, but given the possible use of GB to describe a variety of GameBoy consoles, it helps to use a more unique abbreviation.
>>
>>2909367
>but given the possible use of GB to describe a variety of GameBoy consoles
Yeah, except that once the other models came out, people just called it "original/old gameboy". Using the model designation was never commonplace, and trying to explain it as "Dot Matrix Gameboy" is stupid because ALL the gameboys use dot matrix arrays (such is the nature of LCD screens), meaning that the purpose of the original designator is obsolete. Furthermore, using the "repair purposes" excuse is also dumb when the picture of the model is included in the OP.

ITT: cunts

DMG is valid, you wouldn't use it in a normal conversation but on a board dedicated to classic consoles and games it seems quite fitting.

Similar thing happened to my PSP and DS, but instead spots formed closer to the outer sections.
