I have tested every of your game on your own and it always results with always booting or requiring a bit of coaching to get it booting

It may be that 1 of the pins on that connects to the cartridge is bent or something, look inside with a flashlight and see if anything looks amiss

I opened it up and it looks completely fine. Also it's only one game that doesn't work out of about 10 that I have

- de

I open the game but not the game because I can't open the game cuz I don't have the right stuff

- de

I meant Gameboy

It may just be that that game has broken... But do the same thing, look at the pis on the game and see if anything is amiss (you don't have to open it) and if everything looks fine the the only way to find out is to open the game up

The suggestions by everyone is about as good as you'll get. You'll want to check the pins and give the contacts on the game a good cleaning with rubbing alcohol. If that doesn't fix the situation then one of the chips on the game PCB has probably died. The only way to check a chip (that I'm aware of) is removing it from the PCB and putting it into a tester. Other than that, you would want to inspect the traces on the PCB of the game. run a multimeter from contacts to points on the chip and such. It's a bit of work if you really want find the problem that bad.

I agree with Andrew here

Can you give a better description on how to use the multimeter

- de

To check traces, you can set your multimeter to continuity mode and touch contacts to either end. A beep or '0' on the screen will tell you there is no disruption on that trace. Checking chips is a rigorous process and extremely difficult without the correct tools.

One of the only other options you could try is reflowing the solder on the PCB using either a hairdryer (for a long time on high) or a heat gun (for short bursts) to heat up the solder and see about reconnecting any problematic spots.

Probably, in this case, a chip has failed, which would require programming to completely repair and at this point its best just to find a new game.

What if you CAN'T find a new game? How would you go about reprogramming it?

Hi Joe, I don't know how possible it would be to reprogram a GBC game chip. I know of some YouTubers that do it with NES games but as for "newer" games, I don't think it's possible. If you're still interested, look around YouTube or Google searches to see if you can reprogram a cart and go from there. Best of luck to you on that.

Me too. I bought a GBC just a few minutes ago. When I booted up the GBC, it only shows Game Boy logo and the Nintendo® logo!

I have the same problem. my dad is a software engineer and he can’t figure it out!!! I am a kid with knowledge of a software engineer and I can’t figure it out. now I’ll get to the story. I put my Mario kart game into the game pocket. I turned on the Gameboy and it showed the first screen. it DID NOT GO PAST THE FIRST SCREEN. I reset the Gameboy. and the same thing happened. I got it from my sister and she tried and still the same thing happened. :-(

Hi, I actualy encountered the same issue and I'm looking for answers as well. For me it happened on a Gameboy Color, but the issue stays the same.

I have made a little investigation and found out some things but I lack the knowledge.
