SOURCE: Won't Save

I have the same problem and i found how to fix it but im not sure if it will work because im to lazy to try it you need to find a screw driver to open up the back of the game cartrege (try ebay) then you need a small tweesers or a small needle nose plires to gently break the soddering between the battery and the game next you need to sodder a brand new CR2025 battery back in the game (try ebay, batterys+ and maby game spot) + side goes down good luck

SOURCE: my gameboy pocket doesn't turn on

If any harmful materials entered your game system, like water, and any other liquids. Also, did you play it for like 16 hours? This overheats the contents and can actually cause them to melt. If its permanetely broken, those things are fricken old and you can easily by a cheap new one on Amazon or EBay or something.

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !

If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

I am trying to wire a 7 pin trailer arness to my dodge ram 2500,the harness has a dark green,yellow,green,green/white,brown, red and 2 black wires. the truck doesn't have the 2 black wires and the red...

Go to napa and they have the connectors that plug in to your existing wire connection, I don't know if they have the one for yours, but it won't hurt to check, you don't have to cut or splice the wireing with there trailer connectors, plug it in and done.

My game will save, but when I turn it back on, there is only the "new game" and "options" displayed...I can't continue from where I saved.

there isn't a way to bring back a corrupted Gameboy game save. The reason the save has corrupted is because the small battery in the game had died. Replacing the battery might fix your game, but it won't bring back your save. Well you could use a memory stick for the game boy color and advance and orginal gameboy then instead.

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.
