Recently (about a week or two ago) I bought my second V3 Tamagotchi. It was blue w/bubbles, and I had bought it two, maybe three days after my first one.

Started it up, and everything was fine for a few minutes-- then the "battery dead" symbol came up. Figuring it was a glitch, I reset-- and everything was fine again, for a while.
The next day, the same thing happened a couple times-- reset a bunch, downloaded, and everything seemed fine again.

Then I connected my Tamas, they had children, and I waited paitently for the parents to leave. The day the parents had left, my first Tama (Blue w/stars) had the typical "NAME THE CHILD ALREADY" screen-- the other was having it's "dead battery" issues.

I tried about seventeen times to revive it, but no luck. The battery screen kept coming back, and in the end I let it die.

Has anyone had this issue before?

Also, I can't perform any experiments on it-- After telling my cousin about the issue she offered to trade her old Pink V3 for my blue, buggy one. I'll be seeing her soon (hopefully), but until then I have no clue if putting new batteries in it fixed it.
I hope it did-- I'd hate to have given my cousin a bad Tama!!

If it helps any, the thing was bought from Walmart and had the usual V3 packaging. It only said "Tamagotchi" on the top though-- no "Connection". It was definitely a V3 though.
The first V3 I bought is still running strong.

What was wrong with it?

I'm not really sure, but I have a theory.

I think maybe the circits(sp?) are messed up. Or the battery it came with wasn't charged. Have you switched the battery yet?
If it doesn't start working properly after you've tried everything, maybe take it back and complain it doesn't work? But some stores don't let you.

I hope things get better for you and your tama! :furawatchi:
