Sp won't turn on

I just recently got a SP but it didn't come with a charger, and being the electronic Guy I am I made a homemade one and I calculated the battery power I needed and I hooked it up.... it worked for a while but one time I THINK I switched the + and - signs and it won't turn on anymore.

I have a Parmak Model DF-SP-LI. With a volt meter it reads 2.3 on the fence, but the performance meter is always reading beyond the green.

It depends on the type of fence tester. the common light-o-meters are a resistor ladder, calculated not only for voltage but current. the DF-SP-LI uses half the lowest current most are designed for. no if that is a digital or analog meter, then it would be time to check the out put from the charger with out the fencer connected. if you get the same reading it maybe defective unit. if you get a better reading then you will probable need to upgrade your ground system. insuffencient ground will show its self as a low out put on the fence but not on the charger.

My gamboy advance sp won't charge. The battery isn't dead, but the low battery light is on. There is something wrong with the hole the charger goes in. I have several chargers and have tried them all. They...

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.

Battery charger for olympus sp-320

The SP-320 uses standard AA batteries, disposable or rechargeable. If you want to use rechargeables, you should be able to find chargers at any department, electronics, or office-supply store. You can't use the camera itself as a charger, however.

My GBA SP wont charge

The lead or plug on your charger may be cracked. I have a SP charger but it has a bit of the plastic cracked off and has to be in a certain position to work properly. Otherwise you will need a new battery.

Other ways to charge a gameboy sp.


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

GBA SP not turning on

Did you charge it overnight? The battery was probably too dead for it to turn on. Or, your charger or battery may be bad. Try using another charger and if that doesn't work, replace the battery.
