As it turns out, I believe your V4 has returned to its home planet! I don't know if you will be able to revert this 'event'... 

 

Is your Tamagotchi still responsive? Can you press any buttons or press the reset button?

nothing you can do. once a tamagotchi dies you can use the reset function to revert it to a previous event.

Sorry to say, but like the other comments noted: Your tama is gone. SOMETIMES, if you time it right, you can prevent the death from happening with a quick reset but it's a very tedious timing. Since you didn't catch it in time, it reverted to the most recent "event", in this case, the tama's death. Sorry.

Your saying the download/reset screen didn't even come up? Strange... did you press that button too hard? Or did you press it with a sharp object? I don't know if that's what caused your problem. But it's the only thing I can think of.

I mean have you done this in the past? Or is the tama new?

Is it possible that you pressed too firmly? Sometimes, you can press too hard and the "rubber" gets stuck. If you have the tools, take the back off and see if you can manually reset it by "jiggling" the reset button so it can be "unstuck".

You could take the batteries out and pop them back in if the reset button is unresponsive. If you feel brave enough, you can open up your Tamagotchi and gently clean it with the aid of a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Sometimes the buttons become unresponsive if there are dust particles trapped underneath them.

 

Ra,

You don't actually have to reset the Tamagotchi in order to get a new egg. Press buttons A and C (far left and far right) at the same time and a new egg will appear. That way it will save your friends list, will save your character in the history memobook, and might keep your parents in the memobook and may save some of your money.

But if you want to actually reset it, poke the back firmly with a pen, and not a pencil or sharp object. But it could get stuck if you press the reset button crookedly, so be careful with that.

In the future, be very, very careful with adult Tamagotchis that have children. They can be very fragile and die easily, especially because of their advanced age, so you may want to set the time to night so they sleep while you aren't using them.

Good luck! Sorry your Tamagotchi died. :(
