    Thanks so much for trying I appreaciate your help,but I did what you said but now I can hear the music and still no picture..I would get another one and that would be a lot easier for me,but my son is autistic and he is driving me crazy because he loves this one because I guess of the color red..I don't know if you know about autistic kids but they are very difficult when something like this happens or they are taken out of their routine...can you fix it if I send it to you...or can you tell me where I can get it done?...thank you so very much .

Try another game. It's most likely that the connectors are dirty in sp and that is keeping the game contacts from touching the connectors. You can goto a gamestop or other gaming store and pick up a system/game cleaning kit. DO NOT USE ALCOHOL as some sites might tell you to do.

Try taking the game out, blowing air through the slot and through the GBA's game slot, reinsert the game and try again.

If it doesn't work with any games make sure the slots are dust free.

If it doesn't work with any game it might be an internal problem and you'd be forced to get a new one or get it fixed or even fix it yourself.

Good luck.

    Ok, First try it with another game.



    If you still have warranty; bring it back and get a new one



    If it still doesn't work; take the whole thing apart and clean it with a can of compressed air.



    If that doesn't work take it to a repair guy.

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.

Hi i have a Gameboy color and 1 advanced and they both have problems with the lcd screen it's so dark hard to se what's going on on it :) what's wrong ? can anyone help


you either play them under direct (sun) light or attach some kind of external light like a worm light for a game boy color/advance, but the light isn't evenly distributed. i have a halo light for my gb advance--better than nothing.

No image on Gameboy Advance SP


It is possible to buy another Screen for the GBASP, however it would probably be less work and less trouble just to go to your local Gamestop and buy a new SP for 40 bucks.

Try removing the batteries. Then replacing them. If this does not fix your problem send it for repairs.
