Could be that the led was broken or that the ribbon cable that connects the screen is a little lose. It can be involved trying to open the case up as you need special screwdrivers to do it. You can purchase a set on ebay. They are called tri-wing screwdrivers. If you take the botton off of the sp you'll find the board and the ribbon cable in question. Just unclip it and push it in as far as it will go and push the clip back down. If this doesn't work then it's likely the led has stopped working.

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.
game boy advance sp has a front lit screen.
GameStop sells game boy advance sp for $40.
hope this helped some

My gameboy pocket doesn't turn on, no sound, no video, no red light, nothing. I already checked batteries, i tried to use new ones, but nothing changes

If any harmful materials entered your game system, like water, and any other liquids. Also, did you play it for like 16 hours? This overheats the contents and can actually cause them to melt. If its permanetely broken, those things are fricken old and you can easily by a cheap new one on Amazon or EBay or something.

Power button failure

  • Power Light Shuts Off
    If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair

    Reset sony playstation

    hello dear customer,
    my name is eltoyosi and i am here to help you.
    whenever your kids playstation does not play a disc just in the front side of the game where you slot the disc there are some buttons there carefully check for the one with the green button and blue the blue button and you have just reseted the game
    Another option to this is make sure the disc isnt dirty or damp.
    If it is use a clean soft cloth to clean the disc and insert it again.
    Finally you could just switch it on/off from behind the game.
    thank you.
