    Same problem. Gray screen, no blinking eventually sometimes. I get the same screen when there is no game inserted. Obviously the games aren't being read. I bought it today and it was all set up and working where I bought it from so I bought it. Now this...

Here is a solution I found on youtube. When the cartridge is in, pushed and pushed down, try moving it a little left or right. I myself have games that don't work right if you don't do that.

This sounds like a bad connector or mis-adjusted spring tray. With the cart door open try pushing down slightly on the inserted cart. If you get a picture the tray needs adjusting which would require disassembly. Before you do that grab some RCA cables off your old VCR or stereo and see it the red/yellow jacks on the side of the NES console will give you a picture. You might have a bad video output or RF Switch.

Hi doesn't sound good. some times even replacing the connector pin and cleaning the games, gray screen can still happen this could mean that the console is most likely faulty, have had a few cases of this no matter what i do it just stays gray. try and find a replacement console either on line www.gameoz.com.au or from the auction sites.

My sons just got pokemon gameboy color hand-me-downs x 2. They are 7 and never had a toy like this before. The screens are very dark and we did not get a 'how to use' manual with them. I'm a bit of a...


game boy colors have very dark screens.
if you can, get a Game Boy Advance SP.
the screen has light and has a bigger screen.
you can get one at a Game Stop for $30.
Game Boy Advance SP play game boy, game boy color games, too.
if you choose to stay with the GB color, your boys will have to play their GBC's in well lit conditions.
hope this helps ;p
please rate solution.

Nintendo gameboy color is not working no screen comes on and no light comes on.


It simply sounds like the game boy is dead. That generation of Gameboy is very much out of date and could easily be found on ebay (or in gamestop) for cheap. If you don't want to buy a new one, Id suggest contacting Nintendo customer service. I dont think they could fix it for you, but could have some helpful suggestions.

I worked at a Gamestop for 3 years, and that was a common problem among GBC systems. We never got answers either and they ended up just being field destroy.

Blinking screen


Rooster...the unit must be off before the game can be inserted. It is unclear if you've damaged anything by doing the other way.
