Just dug my gamegear out of the closet (actually found it when I was looking for something else) anyway, I charged the battery pack and installed new batteries, trying both. When you switch it on, the red light comes on and the screen powers up just for a second, then both go off. What could the problem be?
I had the same exact problem. I took the back off, pressed on each of the capacitors. Carefully put the cartrige in with the back still off, plugged in the power and turned it one and presto, it started working!!!

If the power cells are operational and it will not start; then either the motor is dysfunctional or something is jammed in the intake module. A conduction test with instrumentation can indicate if the motor is the problem, the power cells are not fully charged, or you have a short circuit. Check Fuses.
I would check the battery contacts on the gamegear to make sure that no other batteries have leaked already.
If it does look like batteries have leaked in the gamegear before you are going to have to clean it all up.
Have you tried to power the gamegear with an AC adapter? Usually you can pick up a universal adapter at Wal-mart for like $10 you just have to make sure it can do 9V.
No solution just the exact same problem: Does anyone know how to fix the DVD motor? I bought this from Walmart a few years ago and after about 1-2 yrs that was the 1st thing that went on it. The VHS still plays fine. I got tired of trying to "clean" it and its been packed away for at least 2 yrs. I recenly dug it out of the closet but of course its out of warranty. Is it worth repairing (its virtually brand new) or just get something else? Thanks for any suggestions in advance.
Hello, I have a Canondigital ixusi which had the same problem and I purchased three new batteries, but found that all of them showed the "replace battery pack" message when fully charged. I have solved this problem by cleaning all the terminals on the batteries and in the camera very thoroughly with alcohol and Q-tips. Even though the terminals look completely clean, there must be a slight film which is preventing good contact. The contacts in the camera are spring loaded and I suspect they are not making a very good conection to the battery so any contamination is making a high resistance to the flow of electricity. Hope this helps - it worked for me.
Here's what I found and it actually worked after about 7 times. Others said they had to do it about 20 times. Good luck!
My NP 20 gave me the flashing red light of death and I got Casio to replace it. Then I had the same problem with my second NP 20 so I dug around for a way to fix it and I found the following advice on a site called FixYa. It worked instantly and I didn't risk ruining my battery. ylu1 writes: I had the same problem as this. what i did was... i kept putting the battery on the charger then took it off as soon as the red light came on. i did this about 6 times. doing this puts a bit of charge in the battery each time before the charger starts to flash. after the battery as got enough charge in it it can start to charge. hope this helps.
