The screen just goes completely blank like when you buy it and before you take the tag out. Then it comes back to life with no warning. Time and date are all out of whack tho...
does this mean it needs a new battery? I thought it would alert you if there was a low battery problem..

If the batteries are low, it should display a message with like a batterie with a cross over the hole screen with it going thru the batterie.

Make sure you buy / install the correct type - several battery types will fit, but you need a CR-2032 3V - or it will keep beeping/going blank again.
If your Tama is REALLY new (less than 3 months), the battery shouldn't have worn out - take it back for a refund and replacement (if they still have any in stock).

Lucy ASSURES me that apart from a few drips here and there, (rain, drinking fountains at school etc), she hasnt bathed it
and although I AM the perfect mum (even though I am writing this instead of getting them to school on time) I don't usually wash stuff I don't have to so we can rule that one out
I might try changing the battery.. its one of those ones like you put in a computer to replace the clock/back up thingy isnt it?
If it happens again I will take it back to the shop, whether they will want to exchange it without the docket etc is another matter.. sigh..
