I did a ROM test and it still didn't work. :/
I think that it maybe broken. However it's always worth trying to do a Rom test and seeing of it boots up. I'm sure you know what a Tom test is and how to do it. Google it and follow the instructions and then go from there.

If I had it... I would be cleaning the stuff in the red boxes. To me, it looks like something is there... not the yellow glue stuff. Q-Tips, Tooth-pick, and gentle work. Carefully rub that stuff off... I had some stuff in a tamagotchi I bought on ebay. It fixed it right up to working condition. Except, I knew what the stuff was... unfortunately.

@SailorRosette: Mmm, that stuff does look like it belongs, though. :/

So you have sound, thats good... I think your display wire is off... Fun part is finding which wire and where it goes...... Which wires are loose or off? Is there a silver solder buldge that looks more pointed... Or has a tiny wire.... Or simmilar?

I would look that over to see if anything looks .... Weird. If you look at another tama, like an connection, the inside. You would see the green lines aren't covered. The lighter toned green. That is what I was talking about earlier. Sometimes little things look discolored on the solder.... Sometimes cleaning the ones that are looking dirty can fix a tama... Fixed my angel like that....

Well, it's not broken. There's sound. It's just that the display won't come on. Oh, and I hit the reset button via the circuit board and it resumed the usual faint beeping I had heard from my iD L for a while.
Also...I took a look at the front of the circuit board where the screen is and found lots of weird white stuff around where the wires were soldered on. There was some on the large chip behind the screen, which is held there using...erm...excuse my lack for a better term, papery stuff, only thicker. So...I was wondering...is there a display wire or something?
And...while I was screwing it back together, I accidentally dented/bent/whatever a small portion of the bottom red wire on the battery cover and circuit board (see photos). That doesn't seem to have done any damage, though. :/

Maybe take a picture of it. The screen side...
Posted 06 June 2012 - 07:27 PM
The screen in general.
^I know you can't see that very well, but there's some of that white stuff on that large chip. :/
By the way, I kind of broke the black knob off, it's hanging by a wire now. -.- Even when I press it to the base, no sound comes on, so.......yeah.

The stuff doesn't look like the other stuff on the other side.... But I would get the screen side stuff off. The lighter lines, consider that stuff to be like a road block... Probably the image display. My angel had stuff like that directly. The screen started at animation but nothing furthur until that stuff was all gone. Once it was gone, it worked normally.
Btw... The last image. Those are the screen display wires that tell the screen to display the pixels in whatever color needed. That, clean Super carefully with a Q tip and toothpick. Take your time here cause this spot is very important. It appears something is on the command display wires.... Cop name for lack of actual name. This is probably what you should clean first.
The white is probably battery......
I would then check if you have an image at all... Then if not, check the red box stuff... Atleast the lighter green lines around the stuff.
I really hope this fixes it. I haven't fixed a color before.... Many of them were ancestors or A few selective connections.
