I think that the 'debug' is referring to the small dots to the right of it. Maybe you have to connect all of these dots with something to actually debug it. I think... Know that bandai is trying to make it harder for us. If I hadn't promised not to even open up my new tamagotchis, I would probably try for myself if I had a soldering iron

No, those are lead from the other side of the circuit-board to the LCD contacts.

I hope I'm not necromancing since the topic starter said he can't continue on.

I have noticed on the circut board, compared to the v5 board, that everything is the same except the one debug switch, which is only on the v5 board and not the v6. Also, there is resister on the F11 switch. I do believe it is impossible to debug, but the question is, how do they test it in the factories if it is impossible? There has to be a way, but I sure can't find it....

my friend has a TMGC v6 and she did not ever know anything about debug. so one day she told me something like hey i toke apart my tama and i got to choose a pet i paused surprised with my mouth open and i said did you see the debug button and she said i was about to say that i was like omg but she did not say how she did because she forgot (i think) how to debug. i was jelous well we got at least one kid who knows how but she forgot so your right we are makeing progress

Makiko, did she actually show you the character choosing screen? If not, she was probably lying about it, because I have tried every possible combination of thing and none worked. I got it to do weird things, but it was never debugged. Maybe, she would remember how if she tried again? Also, makiko your post is very hard to read, you need to use more punctuation.

Was all of this tested on a second wave Music Star? Like I said before, the first wave MS has a European circuit board and European Tamas can't be debugged. I'm absolutely confused right now. :P

That is a good question! There has to be a way to debug, how else can bandai tast them???? Will someone please email bandai and just ask them if there is even a way to debug it?

Love lots, Jayitchi javascript:emoticon(':D')

Thanks! :)

Umm, Jayitchi; I don't believe that you're supposed to post your introduction HERE. XD

What?! REALLY?! :o I technically have a EUROPEAN Tama?!?! :o *is now very shocked* B-But.... that's IMPOSSIBLE!!!! :P How would Bandai have EUROPEAN Tamas over HERE?!?!?!?! :P

Nevermind, though. XD What matters is that we absolutely MUST find a way to debug it. :P I only have one (first-wave) Music Star, but I WILL be buying a second-wave Music Star, so I can test on that. There's no point testing on my first one. :angry: It doesn't work, anyways. XD

Okay, well; MAYBE I'll buy two; if I break one, and I don't have anymore, I will NOT be too happy!!! XD :P

*looks at binary's photos again*

Hmm.... could it be possible that the thing in the red circle in this picture below could be it? That was the only thing I could find that looked even remotely like the current debugging strips. :angry:
Here's the picture: http://i44.tinypic.com/1resf7.jpg

By the way, what do all the R4 and R11 strips and stuffz like that do? :P

Yea, I see what you mean... Well I hope that she remembers, and wasn't just lying to you... And to everybody out there trying to debug, good luck, and I will try my best to 1) Debug successfully, and 2) Not break my tama, and also, I hope you don't break your tama either...

wow thats just great(not litterly) one of her sisters hammerd the tama because she is always mean at that house. so now we dont have proof of that. but no way i am going to take apart my music star because i already brooke one :nazotchi: and the other one does have the sond wire on the circut board but i lost some screws
so i had to tape it a little. :P mabey BANDAI is on to ous on tamatalk and they want to see how were going to see how to debug with no semi circle :nazotchi: ,remember it MAY be. :o but mabey there is a way,
but i just don't know from binary's pictures. ps thanks for willing to take apart your tama and taking pictures

^ that was kind of off topic unless you're talking about a music star

anyway, i'm wondering how you can tell if its a first or second wave music star? my mom bought me a music star today, but i can't have it until my b-day :o anyway, i would like to know!

It matters because it is rumored that the second wave actually have a debug button.

The second wave does NOT have a debug button on it I would know because I have one

EDIT: the second wave has the exact same circuit board as the first wave but the second wave has a little two by it
Hope I helped :angry:
