Power problem on Game Boy Advance

Hi, I have bought a second hand GBA and after working briefly OK it now only works for a second or so when switched on and then power goes off immediately - I have two mains chargers so I'm sure that is not the problem - any suggestions?!
Thanks

    My SP quit working. When I turn it on the screen flashes on then off immediately. I have tried two different chargers and even bought a new battery.

If the SP works with the power lead in then your battery has died.... they do sell replacement batteries on ebay

If however It won't work with the power in then you have a charging problem and will need a repair

My gba sp keeps freezing the game


First solution is to clean the contacts of your GBA SP, there might be some dusts on the cartridge slot pins, these dusts reduces performance.

If the first solution doesn't work, make sure that the pins is aligned, if you see some that is bent, then you need to reorient it.

If first and second solution still doesn't work, then you need to replace your cartridge slot.

I have a problem on my gameboy advance sp model unit ags-001., and i have a question can the gba sp play old game boy games? and what if its downloadable game can it work on the unit?


Hi, yes it can play classic Game Boy games. On the other hand, if you reffer to roms as downloadable games, there is no legal way to do so, by any means, you would need a flashcart for that.

Hi i have a Gameboy color and 1 advanced and they both have problems with the lcd screen it's so dark hard to se what's going on on it :) what's wrong ? can anyone help


you either play them under direct (sun) light or attach some kind of external light like a worm light for a game boy color/advance, but the light isn't evenly distributed. i have a halo light for my gb advance--better than nothing.
game boy advance sp has a front lit screen.
GameStop sells game boy advance sp for $40.

I just bought my daughter a nintendo ds lite for my daughter. when i insert the game into slot 2 it tells me that there is no game insterted..i took the battery out and put it back in to try to reset it or...


try different games instead of one, could be the GBA [game boy advance] game that is broken! or it could be the DS slot for it so try using an other GBA game to see if it works! if not then see if you have a warrenty on it from the store you bought it from, warrentys should cover it if the other GBA games dont work on it! no warrenty i guess you could have nintendo fix it but im sure for a hefty price!

Problem with screen


Hi it sounds like the screen is faulty or your batteries are flat which I doubt you can buy a second hand GBA for around £15 on ebay this should then be quite straight forward to switch screens. hope this helps follow link http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ARCTIC-ICE-GAMEBOY-ADVANCE-GBA-CONSOLE-MINT-SCREEN_W0QQitemZ120146139392QQihZ002QQcategoryZ112698QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
