I recently won a Tamagotchi iD on ebay.
Once it arrived it was in much worse condition than described. Very sad.
The part where you can put a charm or lanyard had a metal chain that had rusted and really rusted up the plastic.
I tried googling and youtube-ing trying to find how to take it apart but there was none. so I just went for it.
It's surprisingly similar to the normal tamagotchis. As you can see by the photos the screen is the exact piece of plastic used in others.
Took quite a while but I managed to get 95% of the rust off. However the bad corrosion in the battery springs cant be undone.
Rust corrosion in the charm hole:
I did pretty well. Only a tiny but left but it's barely noticeable.
A pretty bad scratch:
it's sadly even more noticeable when it's on as it distorts the pixels around it.
Pen horrible scratched into the battery open button:
Battery corrosion in the battery springs.:
Here are some basic photos of the iD apart:
It's very similar to a normal tamagotchi
How it's all connected:
front face without faceplates:
Faceplate without buttons:
The screen: Identical to the normal connection screen.
I am more than happy to take more photos. If anyone want's too see anything in particular let me know
Have a question?? Ask away
