SOURCE: I have a vtech vmotion game system I can't get the power to come on

I just got off the phone with tech support and this is what they told me: Use a Q-Tip with rubbing alcohol to clean the cartridges and the unit where the cartridges go. NEVER have batteries in the unit if you are using an AC adapter. Unplug the cables from your tv and either unplug the unit or remove the batteries. Press and hold the green start button for 15 seconds. Plug everything back in (or put in batteries if you use them). WITHOUT a cartridge in the unit, turn on the power. If it works, turn it off & try it again. If it works a second time, turn it off and put in the game, then power on. NEVER put a game in or take it out with the power on. Put the game in first, then turn on the power. When you are done, turn off the power then remove the game cartrtdge. It worked for me, hopefully it helps you.

SOURCE: My N64 console keeps on frezzing during the middle

Well video game consoles are sensitive to heat and its an over heating problem if the ac adapter smells burnt than its possible that the adapter isnt sending out the right signal to the system or if the voltage is off it will cause stalling. So try cleaning out the gamepacks and put the gamepacks in halfway instead of all the way in. Or there might be a problem with the console. Dust causes video game consoles to overheat 10 times faster than there normal heating rates.

VTech Vmotion console does not turn on.

Since unit will not work with either batteries or adapter it is safe to say that the issue lies within the electronics of console. Look inside for something obvious such as cracked diode. swollen or leaky capacitor, broken resistor or solid state device. If fused, check it out.

Game not connecting when put in vsmile

Make sure the system is turned off before inserting the cartridge.

1) Press the Reset – Press and hold the ON button for about 10 seconds
2) Make sure the game is inserted far enough into the system, and that it is pointing in the right direction. You may occasionally need to clean the contacts.
3) Also, make sure you are using the supplied power cord/adapter, not batteries. Batteries cause more problems than they’re worth.
