BennVenn IPS LCD Mod Kit - Lynx 2
A modern LCD IPS screen replacement for your Lynx model 2. With its bright colours and crisp images your Lynx has never looked so good! Typically no soldering required!
This is the latest version of the BennVenn LCD replacement kit for Atari Lynx. It uses a high quality IPS screen instead of an older TFT screen. See this page for a comparison of BennVenn LCD kit versions.
There is also VGA out support. Note: VGA extension cable and connector is sold separately.
To use VGA out or scan-line switching functionality, you will need to solder some wires (to the SCANLINE pad on the LCD PCB and the 4th pin under the cart connector - the backlight button pin).
If your Lynx has a C104129-001 motherboard version, you will need to solder an extra wire and cut a trace on the ribbon cable. Please contact us for details.
Note: The built-in power circuit protection is not fitted by default due to global chip shortages and increased costs of components. If you would like to add this to your kit, select the "Add Protection Zener Diode" in the LCD Kit Features. If selected, the Zener Diode will be soldered onto the PCB. Adding the zener will protect the LCD kit from burn out in case your Lynx's MOSFET/zener fail and it will offer some limited protection to your Lynx too. See this page to see effect of the protection circuit being triggered. Replacing the MOSFET/zener on your Lynx is the best option however.
While replacing your screen, don't forget to get a replacement screen lens if your's is scratched or cracked! → REPLACEMENT SCREEN LENS - ATARI LYNX 2
