Question about Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP Console

2 Answers

Game Cartridge Previously I'm able to save game on my games & come back to it another time even after removing from the set but recently, 2 of my games are unable to retain the save data. I think there may be a battery to keep the memory, is there any way of replacing it? Thanks for reading.

Re: Game Cartridge

You could also have accidently bought a pirated copy of the game, which have save batteries that work for a while but then die out.

Re: Game Cartridge

They do have internal batteries in the cart. You can try opening up the cart using a 3.8mm (usually) security bit. Most of the units have a physical battery that you can replace but some have a soldered unit that cannot be replaced.

On xbox 360. my gears 3 disc freezes the console. when rebooted it says the disc is unreadable. i'm on my 3rd disc. when i remove the hard drive, i can play gears 3 but cant save . i have played gears...

Delete any saved game files from your x box hard drive.Unplug x box for 5 min.
Plug back in and power up.
Try game again.
Chances are files have become corrupt.Also delete any files from GOW 1 and 2.

My gameboy color wont save is that the gameboys problem or the games??/

Hey there,
On the gameboy, the various game saves are always stored on their respective cartridges. Therefore, if the game won't save for whatever reason, it is the game's fault, not the gameboy's.
Hope this helped!

On the phantom hourglass it says... data could not be read.Please turn the power off and reinsert the game card.I did what it said.I even cleaned it.I need help.

WARNING: This will erase all saved game data!

As the game boots up, press "A,B,X,Y,L, and R" all at the same time to erase all saved game data. This resets the game to all defaults and it's like it's a brand new cartridge. Stinks you lose your save data but at least you get to play again.

My Playstation 2 memory card has corrupted data.

well, if it only does this error for one game then maybe the problem is in the game itself? Is the CD a real one? or is it copied with a golden back?
if it is copied then such things can definitely happen.

Error code 80010514

Sony has a few fixes for this.

Visit PLAYSTATION 3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.

To check what version of the System Software is currently installed on your PLAYSTATION 3:

  1. From the XMB™ home menu, go to icn_settings.gif(Settings) > icn_syssettings.gif(System Settings) > [System Information].

    The system will display the System Software version number.
OR During certain troubleshooting situations, it may be necessary to restore all of the PLAYSTATION 3 system settings back to their original "default" configuration.

  1. From the XMB™ home menu, go to icn_settings.gif(Settings) > icn_syssettings.gif(System Settings) > [Restore Default Settings].

  2. Once you select [Restore Default Settings], you will see a list of settings that will be restored. Scroll through them and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton to restore the settings.

  3. After the operation is complete, you will see the initial setup screen that appeared the first time you turned on the PLAYSTATION 3.
    You will need to go through the initial setup process before you can use the PLAYSTATION 3.
The Restore Default Settings feature will erase any previously saved settings and restore all of the following settings to the default:
  • BD/DVD Settings
  • Music Settings
  • Chat Settings
  • System Settings
  • Date and Time Settings
  • Accessory Settings
  • Display Settings
  • Sound Settings
  • Security Settings
  • Network Settings
  • Internet Browser Settings
Also, do not confuse "Restore Default Settings" with the "Restore PS3 System" option (the next option down on the menu). The "Restore PS3 System" will not only restore the default settings, but it will also delete all hard disk content. (You will lose all saved content from your PS3 system's hard drive if you use "Restore PS3 System.)


Power-Cycle All Network Equipment Power-cycle means to turn the networking devices OFF (i.e., unplug it from the power source), and then to turn it back ON after a set period of time. This will allow the network devices to refresh its settings.

Please power-cycle ALL of your network equipment, including any wireless access points, routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) modems, and broadband modems for two (2) full minutes. After 2 minutes, you can turn on (or plug in) your equipment.
Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!! // //

How to delete a high score

OK Midway (the manufacturer) say there is no method to reset the scores!

But...according to some this is possible:
You have to take out the game when it is saving, it might take a couple of times. You know when it has reset when you start the game up again and it has the "saving" screen between the opening logos. Your user profile won't be erased just your high scores. This might not be the best way of doing it but it appears the only way.

Saved games delete in few seconds

I don't think it's possible to undelete the game without a cheat device. However, the data won't be completely gone until its all written over. Even with the cheat device, you'll only be able to partially recover the data. Anyway, make sure the batteries are ste ok... and Do NOT use it if your batteries are low
