My Gameboy Advance SP won't charge the battery. And I know it's not the outlet or the AC Adapter because I've tried multiples of each.

Typically when batteries won't charge on small electronic devices then the battery is the culprit; if you have access to a friend's Gameboy try your battery in theirs to see if it charges (if it doesn't then you know for sure it's your battery).

SOURCE: My GB Advance SP does not charge.

try getting a different charger. you can usually get one from your local Game Stop or online from ebay. it's possible that the connector on the charger is worn and is not supplying the current to your GBA.

My sp will not charge, I am not sure if it is the battery or something else


Game Boy Advance SP - Charging Light Won't Display If the orange-colored charge light on your Game Boy Advance SP is no longer coming on when the A/C Adapter is connected to your system, please use the following troubleshooting steps.
    Troubleshooting Steps:
    1. Make Sure the Game Boy Advance SP Isn't Already Fully Charged
      If the battery is already fully charged, the light will not display when the system is plugged into the AC Adapter. Play a game without using the AC Adapter for at least 10-15 minutes, then plug the AC Adapter in, to see if the light comes on. If it does come on, the battery was fully charged. If the light still does not come on, see Step 2.


    2. Make Sure the Outlet You Are Using Works
      Plugging another electrical device into the outlet is a good way to check if the outlet works, or that the outlet you are using is not controlled by a nearby light switch. You may also want to try a different outlet.


    3. Try a Different Licensed AC Adapter
      If the charging light doesn't display, try a different AC Adapter, if possible, to determine if perhaps the problem is with the adapter.

      • If a different AC Adapter works, you will need to get a replacement AC Adapter from our Online Store, or by calling our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700.
      • If a different AC Adapter doesn't work, or if a replacement AC Adapter is not available and the lights will not display, we recommend having your Game Boy Advance SP repaired. Check out our convenient repair options.


    Note: Please be sure to include both the Game Boy Advance SP and the AC Adapter with any repair

Hello, my Gameboy Advance SP has no sound coming out of the speaker. The volume is all the way up and it still won't work. The screen and the rest of the Gameboy itself seem to be fine, but the volume...


Speakers are either blown or liquid got into them which is why you would not get sound. Either way you need to get the Gameboy Advance SP replaced or have it sent into Nintendo if the warranty is still good.

My gamboy advance sp won't charge. The battery isn't dead, but the low battery light is on. There is something wrong with the hole the charger goes in. I have several chargers and have tried them all. They...


I had the same problem. It was a solder connection in the charger socket. I tried to fix it but made it worse. I ended up having to switch the battery with a charged one from another GameBoy. That's how I was able to keep using it.

My G.B.A system does not power up


Exactly.
Same thing happened to me.
I got the blue one.
The problem is your battery has ran out if energy and the adapter/charger is done out of power with the inputs. So get a new adapter/charger and charge it for like 1 day.

Square outlet on back of unit not connecting to charge plug


You probably have a loose connection inside the unit and it needs service or replacement. call the manufacturer.

Gameboy not charging


Sounds like the cells inside of the battery are weak and can't hold the charge. If possible, try a known good working battery and then charge it up. If the charge holds and you can run the battery off of it for a while then you know the original battery is bad.

If you try a known good battery and the charge still doesn't hold then it could be the main board inside of the GBA is bad and you would need to get another system unless the one you have happens to still be under warranty.

You can also try a know good ac adapter at that point as well to make sure your adapter isnt flaky but if you can turn on your gba with just the adapter hooked up then more then likely the adapter is good.
