I do not, personally, work on GBA (Nintendo) products. I think it would be best to contact Nintendo on this issue - http://www.nintendo.com/contact .

I was checking their website. Seems they charge like 55$ for fixing it ^^;.
Also I was able to find some sites that sould the lcd screen for 30$, more or less.
Is there a cheaper solution ^^;?

Well, if the person who is doing is a Nintendo approved repairman, then absolutely use a cheaper method. However, if you do use a cheaper method without an official repairman from Nintendo, you void your warranty.

You technically will be getting the GBA SP for cheap (by about $20) if you send it in for repairs. If you really want to wing it with the cheap LCD screen you'll essentially be making a gamble. It's really up to you and how good you are with electronics. Personally, I'd find (no experience) replacing LCD screens a real pain in the ass.

I know this might sound even more rare.
Is there any way to make the GBA SD to transmit the image any other place?
Let's say to the Pc thru usb cables or something like it.

To the OP
Not advisable unless

a) you have access to the schematic
b) can read a schematic
c) have soldering iron skills as well as a soldering iron, flux and pcb cleaning materials, because in all likelihood you will need to solder some stuff
d) have an understanding of voltages and electric currents
e) a ridiculously steady hand and attention to detail, is mighty difficul to work on something that small. I've built guitar FX pedals of a similar size and most of them gave me migraines to complete.

Will this do? Not to PC but to TV? You could then link it to your PC maybe through a video capture/TV tuner card?
