Your IPS kit finally arrives and you're so excited to get it all set up -- you've been waiting to play Pokemon with the lights out for ages now. You sit down to install your kit and upon testing the screen, you see a bunch of snow noise all over the screen. What happened?!

Snow noise in freshly installed GBA IPS kits is caused by loose connections. If you see this, you'll want to double check all the ribbon cables and make sure they're seated properly!
