Game Boy Speaker Repair

The Game Boy Color, open, with the new speaker installed.

I recently picked up a Game Boy Color for cheap, due to an issue with the sound. This is a common issue, the speakers wear out or break over time. Replacements are easy to come by, and cheap. Here's mine, with the new speaker in. Turns out the cheap and easy to get replacements aren't quite perfect. The original speaker (with the "Z" on the back, outside the console) comes in a plastic case, with some nubs on the outside to hold it in place. The new one fits in that space, but it's a bit smaller. A few dabs of hot glue should keep it from rattling around. And now my Game Boy Color has sound again!
