It simply sounds like the game boy is dead. That generation of Gameboy is very much out of date and could easily be found on ebay (or in gamestop) for cheap. If you don't want to buy a new one, Id suggest contacting Nintendo customer service. I dont think they could fix it for you, but could have some helpful suggestions.

I worked at a Gamestop for 3 years, and that was a common problem among GBC systems. We never got answers either and they ended up just being field destroy.

hopefully you already figured this out but that usually just means you put the game in slightly wrong. the games can get touchy in their old age, happens with pretty much all my GBC games I have now. just try blowing in the open end of the game, insert it again and hope for the best. keep trying, it'll work eventually.

Your link is broken but regardless...

"POKEMON SPECIAL PIKACHU EDITION" should work in your gameboy color assume neither the gameboy color nor the game are broken.

The gameboy screen comes on, but the nintendo logo is blurred, and the screen goes blank, without the pokemon opening screen showing up


This is usually solved by blowing in the cartridge and putting it back in firmly (don't slam it). It just means that the contacts on the game aren't all properly touching the pins on the system. You may also find it useful to put rubbing alcohol on a q tip, wringing out the excess moisture, and gently clean the gold parts inside of he game. Then allow it plenty of time (i.e. 3 hours) to dry before playing. Make sure that you put in the game straight and properly when you go to play. If this does not work then you may want to look into either cleaning the pins on the Game Boy, or there may be something wrong with the game itself. Try then to play it in a different Game Boy. I hope this helped.

game boy colors have very dark screens.
if you can, get a Game Boy Advance SP.
the screen has light and has a bigger screen.
you can get one at a Game Stop for $30.
Game Boy Advance SP play game boy, game boy color games, too.
if you choose to stay with the GB color, your boys will have to play their GBC's in well lit conditions.
hope this helps ;p
please rate solution.

It is a pokemon trading card game nintendo gameboy video game.


The little golden connector thingies (sorry I forget what they're called) on the bottom of your cartridge are either dirty or damaged.
Try tilting the cartridge at a slight angle while it's in the Gameboy, either forward, back, or to either side.
Sometimes it puts pressure on the right spot to make it work.
Other than that, try cleaning the surface of them.

Wont work the gameboy color screen shows a blurred nintendo logo


this happened to me as well, from personal experience it seems that your game got to hot and fried the circuitry a bit, i had to get a new game, found out if a little moister gets in there and heats up on a hot day, the power supply on the game system fries the circiutry, if you got it used see if they will return it for a better one, if you recently got it, i hope so...best of luck...shia
