Question about Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP Console
When gameboy is first connect to charger lead, oragnge light appears. This then goes out after 2-3 seconds. Gameboy will turn on (second orange light appears) and run for a short time 5-10 seconds then turns off. Need some advice on identifying problem and remedy.
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.
