I have several game gears and battery packs with problems

I also have 2 game gears that only work by putting fresh batteryies in the back. My point is how and where can I get these problems fixed.

The battery compartments were notorious for getting broke. I have fixed a couple. The contacts would get rusty and sometimes harm the mainboard. go to and look on there forums. They will probably have detailed instructions there.

I found this Game Gear at a thrift shop, and i put in new batteries but it won't turn on. Why?

Make sure the connections were the batteries hit on each side on the game gear..are not corroded..or rusty.take a piece of sand paper to them be sure..also try other batteries.. if still no power up. Would be the switch..

Disc Unreadable

Your laser lens is going out and needs replacement. Either replace the whole drive (but switch out your old circuit board into the new drive) or buy a new laser and install it in (model number is etched into the bottom of the laser).

You have to switch your old board out of the old drive into the new due to Microsoft having "Keys" locked into each drive so you cant fix your system easily. So remember to keep the boards seperate and switch the old board into the new drive and install the new drice... should fix it nicely.

Xbox 360 won't play one type of disc.

Are any of the disks new? If so you seriously need to call Microsoft and demand an explanation.

Not trying to make you look stupid, but just in case make sure they are gears of war for the Xbox, not for the pc

Game gear has sound, no picture just lines

it sounds like the game gear is breaking down. i wouldn't bother repairing it as i have owned one previously and the repairman said it would cost me £30 - £40 to have it repaired and my game gear had the same problems as yours. you can replace it as there are loads of game gears to choose from on - just type game gear on search in all categories and a huge list comes up. i bought one from there a few days ago and it cost me £8.49 and that included 4 games! i hope this helps.

Power up problems

This will need a new voltage regulator i think, either that or the cold cathode driver is faulty.
you will need to take it to a store to get it repaired.

try adjusting the brightness knob on the system. i once had that same problem with mine. The ccfl tube (the main battery drain problem in most portables) might be burnt out or something. You can replace it with LED's i think.
