Left eye keeps glitching

The only problem I have with my virtual boy is that the left eye keeps glitching out, the right doesn't glitch at all, it's only the left one. Please help!

Unfortunately, Nintendo cheaped out when it came to the VB. The ribbon cables that connect the motherboard to the display LED board isn't soldered; they're GLUED. So even with old new stock VBs, the glue will degrade and relax the pressure, losing connectivity.

It is possible, though not for the faint of heart, to open the VB, remove the glue, scrape away a bit of the ribbon cable to reveal the metal traces, and solder those traces to the LED board. This is a permanent fix, too - unless you screwed something up, you'll never have to worry about the display glitching again...well, for connectivity issues.

I have actually undertaken to create a brand-new replacement cable for the Virtual Boy, which I call the VirtualCable. It still requires soldering in place, but has helpful features like castellated pins for the LED board side and 3M tape to adhere and stabilize the cable.

Price is $11/pair before June 1st, $15 a pair afterward. On June 1st I'll shoot the order in with my fab house to start production. If you want to join and get a pair (or ten!), shoot me an private message on PlanetVB.com.
