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.

My gameboy color turns off after about 7-12 seconds after turning it on.While its on the power light begins to flicker then it turns of.


Well it sounds like the fuses are having problems then and need to be fixed or replaced. It would be easier to buy a new gameboy colour vs having that one repaired it might not be an easy fix then it could be a hard fix.

My gameboy while charging one second the light comes and the next second it goes off.


Hi,
Charging problem.
If you have experience in repairing GB SP, you could open the main board and check the continuity of the resistor coil near the charger inlet and the two micro fuse, that is the usual probs of the SP.
Check also the charger if the output has DC current.
If you have no idea on such repair, better bring it to your technician and have him do the repairing, it needs soldering to replace those parts that I have describe.

Thanks for asking FixYa!

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.

Other ways to charge a gameboy sp.


hi

you can normally buy a portable charger , it sounds like the pins in the charger have gone ,so it may be a case of buying a new charger these can be picked up on the net quite cheaply
or you could try getting a needle and bending the pins back into the shape they are meant to be , to get an idea look at your other charger

hope this helps

Gameboy advance sp - water damage - won't charge!


Hi Suzy,
it,s not worth repairing.
the cost of a new motherboard and fitting will cost more than the Gameboy advance. i bet the three year old lads not the flavour of the month, with the 7 year old :)
have a look on e-bays the best, not everyone wants these anymore. you might find One on Swapz.co.uk if your in England.
Hope this answers your question.
