ok, so the first time the matchmaker came, I accidentally missed it, so I changed the time and it came again. I pressed a button, and the matchmaker came in with this character. But you couldn't nake out what character it was, because it was just a bunch of moving pixels in no particular order, but the picture of the matchmaker was fine, perfectly normal! I was really confused, but clicked 'yes' to love anyway and suddenly, there were to long horizontal lines in the center of my tama! I tried pressing buttons, but nothing worked and it didn't respond. I clicked reset button on the back and selected download. The two black lines were still above the egg on the reset screen, and when i clicked download, the black lines were slowly fading away, but still there. (they did disappear)

Now today, I changed the time again, but as soon as the matchmaker came in, before I could see whether the character was another bunch of meaningless pixels, there were the annoying black lines again! I waited till they disappeared, but nothing. So I downloaded again, and here i am.


Is this a glitch, or is my tama running out of batteries? Is this common, and has it happened to anyone before?

Please help, or my tama can't mate!

It's a known problem. Some other members have describe the same thing happening to them. Usually pressing the Reset button on the back and then selecting Download from the Download / Reset menu on the screen is enough to get you going again.

Thanks, but whenever I reset/download, the next time the matchmaker comes, the same thing happens! Maybe I should change the battery??

I knoow a lot about tamagotchis, but iv'e never heard of something like this. I think you're just going to have to wait to get another tama hatched, but if that doesn't work, I suggest you get a whole other tamagotchi.

I never heard of a charcter made of lines before. but I don't think it's a glitch either.
