    I apologize if you know these fixes already, but I don't have a GBA & know there are many here that complain about GBA's lighting. I did a search for similar threads (nothing found), and this is in the newest EGM. If this is nothing new plz delete this post.
    This is in EGM #152, March 2002. Pg. 46. I'll copy it word for word.

    New Ways to Look At Your GBA
    So you have a GBA, but making out the screen has turned portable-game time into a living hell. Well two handy remedies are making their way to the market, and (surprise) they're not from Nintendo.
    The name may be a bit deceptive, but http://www.portablemonopoly.com

    I believe that on the Portable Monopoly website they said it would be around $50

    The Portable Monopoly one does look very nice. Here's hoping it sees the light of day (pun intended).

    I would buy it, but I don't want to open my GBA, nor do I want to lower the battery life any.

    The lighting kit from portablemonopoly is going to use led bulbs so the drain of power should be the same as a wormlight (or 2 wormlights).

    The traplight wasn't all that bad. I did try out a nyko wormlight and may It may be a best selling light but it does create glare and is somewhat small. I also tried a GBC wormlight on an advance but it was too dull and had to be bent backwords.

    The best light I've ever used for a gameboy was made By nintendo and is only for the original gameboy.

    It involved a florescent strip of plastic that encircled the screen giving a smooth and uniform glow to the screen. It used 4 AAA batteries and added a bit of weight, but I used that light all the time.

    BTW, The Gameboy Advance is 69.99 available at Toys R Us R-zone. Now is that a good price for a retail sealed Gameboy Advance or what? (Can u tell I work there?)

    $10 better than everywhere else. It's good to be Nintendo's #1 retail partner.
