GAMEBOY Color power problem - not batteries!!!

I tried to switch on the old game boy color just for the nostalgia and found that there is a power problem - when i switch it on the red light comes on - it loads up as normal but a few seconds later the red light flashes and it switches off! is there anyway i can solve this problem e.g by disassembling or something?

Thanks,
Nick

P.S. it is not the batteries, believe me i have tried lots of different brands! lol

My prized game boy color wont turn on i had it checked but it still wont turn on


Some times the springs and plates in the battery compartment need cleaning. Did this to my classic Gameboy and the thing works like it's new.
Extreme cases the Gameboy Color has 2 fuses that can burn from age or voltage input is too high these are easy to replace or just patch if you have skill with a soldering iron.

My gameboy's screen has dark stripes in it fixable or should i get a second hand/refurbished one?


It sound like the color or the screen parts inside of the game boy color are not working properly so it would just be easier to buy a new one vs fixing the current one. The current one could be fixed but it might not be an easy fix and the fix might be complicated then.

Unfortunately, on the old Gameboy Color Pokemon games, the save battery has a limited life. The only way to keep a save is to get a new, working copy of the game.

My game boy color doesn't turn on


theres a broken connection somewhere if even the LED doesn't even come on. I doubt theres even an internal fuse on the gameboy.
The only thing you might be able to fix was a faulty on/off switch - have you tried shorting the switch contacts with something metal?
