So i decided to start the angelgotchi back up and upon pushing the reset it still gave me the spaceship. So i took the batteries out and put them back in and still a spaceship. Rense and repeat for pushing the restart button and nothing. Im debating on what to do now. Its been a minute sense i ran an angelgotch. Any tips?

The opening animation is SUPPOSED to be a spaceship. For the American version at least. Just press the middle button and set the time, then wait five minutes and your Angel should hatch.

Do you mean the egg isn't hatching or the buttons aren't responding?

I replaced the old batteries with brand new ones, reset the tama, and hit b...
No response.

I tried resetting again and hitting b to set time and the buttons are unresponsive. The ship keeps shifting left and right as per normal but nothing is happening.

Open up your Tamagotchi and rub the button contacts with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab, then put it back together. The buttons should be fixed by then.

 

NOTE: You might need a teeny-tiny screwdriver to unscrew the tiny screws.

You set the clock right?

If you want to... Open it up and make sure all the lighter green paths don't have anything on them. It could be blocking the channel that sets the tama to be raise. (clock and then the tama showing up)

Ok, so after i went around the house gathering supplies for surgery, I got it to work.
I was already pro at taking tamagotchis apart because i like to know what i am dealing with. I didnt think about cleaning the rubber button inserts which was talked about. After grabbing some fine q tips (like the nice ones from the doctors, not the dual tip you can buy at grocery stores) and cleaning and drying my hands, i cleaned the circuit board and everything inside the tamagotchi. It now works. Thank you for all the help. Its been a long time sense i opened up a tamagotchi for routine maintenance.

So my opinion on what to do if your tama stops cooperating is...

Reset
And/ or

Battery rotation

If that doesnt work.....

Wash and dry hands
::gloves optional::

Fine tip q tips
Rubbing alcohol
CORRECT screw driver ( dont wanna warp screws )

Clean board softly
Clean rubber button insert
Clean screen ( optional taking screen apart but not necesary )

Place back together in correct order....

Insert batteries
Reset

But as a side not, not apply rubbing alcohol to board or screen. ONLY RUBBER BUTTON INSERT.
Also make sure to completely dry the insides of the button insert/reset. If not done correctly, you could end up with a dead tama.

Again thank you everyone for reminding me of these what to dos!!!
