The GameBoy SP had a better screen, and the newest Nintendo DS Lite has an even better screen. It plays GameBoy Advance games as well as Nintendo DS games, so it's a good replacement.

The original Gameboy Advance didn't have a bright screen or a frontlight like the GameBoy Advance Sp, SP+ and Nintendo DS.

You should try a better bulb or trying to find a DS or SP

If you shine a bright light at the screen and you can see something, the back light/inverter may have failed. If nothing at all, check on an external screen.

How to find jirachi in pokemon ruby agb

The only way you can get a jirachi is through an event but unfortunatly, the event is long gone.

You can use a game shark (a hacking system) and use it to get jirachi. but be careful, hacking can screw up your game.

I think there is a jirachi that you can get if you have Pokemon colosium for game cube.

Changed battery, still not turning on. what do i do?

The most frequent cause for this ''not turning on'' is a screen that is too light to see anything displayed. Try increasing the screen darkness.
Press 2nd key and release it
Press and hold the Up Arrow until it is dark enough.

If the does not work
  1. Press 2nd key and relese it
  2. Press UpArrow and release it
  3. Repeat the two steps until screen is dark enough.

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.
