Thank you, Jokus.
That was pretty neat (really difficult to press all of the buttons and the reset button at once, though XD)
It tested the pixels, then did a ROM test. It said "ROM OK" which I am going to assume means it's isn't corrupted.
I tested the sound wires next. Poking one of the wires did make the Tamagotchi reset. It looks like it was half pulled out already.
I pulled it completely out. I'll see if I can get someone solder it back on later today.
Pulling the wire seems to have stopped the glitchy screen, which is good. (The ROM test did restart the Tamagotchi from the start, I see. No Download or Reset option, just the floaty egg that prompts me to input the time and date.)
I guess a faulty wire was the cause of the whole thing! I've never heard of that happening before. I learned something new today. XD
When I fix the wire, I think I might rejoin the hatch. :3
