To replace it, you have to use some special parts that you can find at a RadioShack.

If you're referring to a battery that is part of a Game Boy Color game, there is no way to re-charge it.

How i fix a gameboy color game


Well if the battery inside of the game pack is dead then un solder it and resolder the new battery in the battery socket inside of the game pack. To fix a broken game pack you need to find out which piece is broken and ding that specific part from some where would be easier to buy a new game pack

The game won't save anymore. It used to for years but now it won't work.


Unfortnatley, Game Boy color games had a internal battery inside the Game Case to keep save files on them. You could open the case up and install a new battery, otherwise you cannot save. Sorry!
Good luck and do not forget to rate me :)

My Game Boy Color game: Pokemon Gold has recently stopped working. By this I mean it does not save anymore and always resets itself whenever the game is turned off, despite "saving." I'm not...


There is no easy fix. Well, there is, but you have to open the game cartridge
all gameboy game cartridges have a battery inside. this battery powers the save module. Pokemon gold is such an old game that the battery has likely died; open the game, replace the battery, and it should work. images?q=tbn:ln15bafqcr5fzm: Leave me good feedback please.

My save files continusly corrupted and the game also says the time is not set after I turn the Game Boy Advance off then back on. I'm also wondering if it has to be a Game Boy Color.


The internal battery inside the game cartridge has died and needs to be replaced. This watch battery is what keeps track of the save file and the time in the game. Remove the screw on the back of the game cart (you may need a special screwdriver) and pop off the cover, revealing the main PBC (PCB?) circut board of the cartridge. You're doing game surgery, so be careful with doing this. Bend the contacts keeping the battery in place and remove the battery. If you accidently broke off the contacts, you'll need to solder some more back on. Anyway, replace the old battery with a CR 2032 battery (common watch battery sold at retailers), or a CR 2025 will work as well. Just make sure the contacts are touching the right sides of the battery. I believe the default would be negative side down. It's recommended that you tape the battery down to keep it from coming loose. After all that is done, put the cartridge casing back on, screw the screw back into place, and insert it into your Game Boy. It really does not matter wether you're using Game Boy Color, Advance, Pocket, or any model. Your game should be able to keep the time and its save.

Pokemon Silver for Game Boy Color: my pokemon silver game for game boy color keeps sa...


Well its because the battery inside of the gamepack that allows you to save the game data is dead now or its a bad gamepack then.
Can your Pokemon game still hold a save?

If your Game Boy game is no longer able to hold a save, yet can still be played fine, that most likely means that the battery in the game cartridge has run out of energy.

You can easily replace this battery, restoring the cartridge's ability to store save data. This replacement can be performed for much less than the cost of buying a new game. You just need to purchase a new battery.

**Basic soldering skills required**

Materials:
Soldering iron
New 3 Volt Coin Cell Battery - CR2025 (165mAh) or CR2032 (220mAh)
Adhesive tape
Fine tipped hemostat or needle-nosed pliers

Flip over your cartridge.

Locate Screw

Using a hemostat, needle-nosed pliers, or anything else that you can grip it with, unscrew this little screw by turning counter-clockwise.

hemostat.jpghemostat.jpg
unscrew.jpgunscrew.jpg

Once the screw has been removed, turn cartridge over, slide the front cover downwards, and pull it off.

Now you can see the circuit board, and the battery that allows one of the chips to retain the game save data.

You can see that both Pokemon Red and Silver cartridges look very similar, except that the Silver circuit board has a crystal oscillator in the upper left-hand corner to control the passing of time in the game.

Can't save any games.


Okay, your games don't save on your game boy itself, they actually save on the cartridges. The way it maintains the save is a small battery inside the game. It sounds like the battery is going or is completely dead. You can try to manually replace the battery inside the game, or take it to a Nintendo retailer and see if they can't replace it for you. Hope this helps you out :)

What do i do when my pokemon leafgreen keeps deleting on my ds


You will have to contact Nintendo about getting the cartridge repaired. Most likely the battery inside the cartridge has failed. The saves are all stored using this battery.

Nintendo's number is: 1-800-255-3700

Hope this helps!

Pokemon emerald game boy advance game


Your problem is the small battery inside. The battery has shifted since the original purchase. That battery is what completes and holds the save files in your game Pak until you turn it on again. The only way to solve this problem is to send the Pak into Nintendo. If you have owned the Pak for more than 3 months, the fee will be $10.
