Hello Tamatalkies. :D

I have been trying to connect my V5.5 with another Tamagotchi, but it resets/crashes! :(

A couple weeks ago,I WAS going to debug it, but one of the screws was too tight, so I gave up. It accidentally turned off many times, and I think that's why it broke. :(

So what do I do? :huh:

Here's a helpful hint: If you don't want to break your Tamagotchi
don't even try opening it up, this is only recommended for the v5 and v5.5 from me because
I almost broke it when I tried (the circuit board).

You may have damaged the circuit board by scratching it or making a dent in it during the process.
Try tightening the screws (this is only if the screen goes blank or something really).
You could clean out your Tama with a tooth pick by getting rid of some gunk that's located on the circuit board (just be really careful though).
You mentioned you couldn't open a screw so maybe the last idea won't work.
Something is screwy with your Tama, you MIGHT be able to fix it.

You might be connecting with an incompatible version as well.

Nobody said change your battery? That could be the simplest fix. The crash could mean low battery when connecting.

Yep, when a V5 has a low battery, when you try to connect, it automatically goes to the download/reset menu to avoid stressing itself. Try changing the battery and seeing if that helps.
I doubt the failed debug has anything to do with it. Don't panic, your Tama is most likely fine. :)
The bad thing that happens with low batteries is this terrible, high pitched vibrate/buzz thing (don't even get me started), so what's happening instead is GOOD for your Tama.
