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..

Why 2003 ford focus doesnt stay in 4th gear it shifts back into neutral?

Automatic or manual?
If automatic, the problem can be caused by several things and electronic diagnosis may be required. Often , the gear selector switch/connection is faulty. Of it could be caused by the solenoid valve pack in the transmission.

If a manual, gear selector linkage mis-adjusted, OR defective gear set kicking it out of gear.

I have the heavy gear . i've changed my joystick, but the game doesn, recognize the new one

In Windows 7, Go to "Game Controllers" in your control panel, select your joystick from the list, click "Advanced," and under "Preferred Device" select your joystick from the dropdown menu.

It worked for me with my MS Sidewinder FF2 and Windows 7. BTW, SloMo is highly recommended to play Heavy Gear 1, as otherwise your gear will run in place in the game because it's running too fast.

I have a vxl brand new. It is set in the first 1

Your vxl is set on the wrong battery type. It got inadvertantly set to a lithium ion battery setting and it immediately reads your 8.4 volt battery as being dead! Look through your instruction manual about 4 pages in and it will show you how to set the battery setting back to a regular battery. I had the same problem and as soon as I reset the vxl motor controller back to standard battery, mine works great! Don't get discouraged, it is a great hobby and lots of fun for all. There are many upgrades you can also do by gearing down the motor for faster speed. Gear change packs are about 20.00 and can really boost your speed. I hope this helps. I am out of town but if you can't find the instructions, email me later this week and I'll see if I can find mine when I get home. Simple fix, just don't have my book on hand.

I had one that did this exact same thing and it was a wireless one.
yours is wireless as well. from experience i purchased a charge pack
and every other time i switched battery packs it would work for a long while but eventually i just took it back to wal-mart and got another one free of charge just told them it was defective.
I would take it back and not deal with the trouble of wasting good batteries, and dont worry if your warante is no good just call Microsoft and send it to them they have no problem replacing stuff ive had my 360 replaced 3 times.

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.
