Question about Nintendo Video Game Consoles & Games
The charger works fine because i've tried it on other peoples gameboys.
Hi, if you have tried the charger on other gameboys then this chances are you know the charger is fine so this can then lead to two or three possible problems. the first and most likely is that the cells in the battery are dead and the battery needs replacing also check if the battery terminals are connectint properly. the best place to get a replacement battery from is the well known auction site you should be able to get one for next to nothing.
the second problem could be that the charge port on the gameboy has become damaged this happens over time with the charger being plugged in and out over a long time this can cause the solder to crack leaving no cicuit for the charger to connect with the circuit board causing the battery not to charge.
Now the third problem could be that the circuit board itself has become damaged due to either being dropped or getting wet as both of these can cause the problem you are having.
If you have had the chance to try the charger on another game boy then it would be a good idea to try one of these batteries in your gamboy doing this would tell you if its worth buying a replacement battery ir not if it works then it would be worth purchasing a new or used battery.
If it still dont work with a different battery then the chancses are it would be cheaper to replace the game boy than it would to take it to be repaired.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

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.
