  1. My batteries still totally fail. Especially in the devilgotchis.
  2. I was somehow not really happy with it, so I hand painted the spare shell of the black P2 I bought. It is very unique ans has gotten well.
  3. Honestly Im not a fan of the 2018 edition of tamagotchi. The qualitiy is not so great, just the way the plastic feels.. No, I cant do that to my devil But I did it. Transplantation successful! It was difficult. The speaker of the devilgotchi seemed to be glued firmly to the plastic. I got it finally out with the tip of a knife. I took the new black P2 I bought and started to put the devil in the back of the p2. Somehow it wasn't fitting perfectly and I had no idea why. No matter how I tried to insert electronics and sound chip, there is a gab between the front and the back side. I finally fastened the 4 inner screws carefully and Somehow could close the gap good as possible even tho the non japanese p2 back is not perfectly fitting. However the result is good, even you can tell that is a P2 back and battery lid. It says now: 1997 made in thailand instead of 1998 made in china 😄 . The devil battery lid wasnt fitting for the p2 back. The sound is good, I don't hear a real change, but its hard to tell. Its still loud. The problem is, there is no japanese edition of a black tamagotchi I think, or its too expensive. Last but not least I repainted the worn off print in the lower right. I think I did a good job, but NOTHING of that all was easy, I can tell you that. <----repaint job The p2 back Gap between front and back and lower right print before repaint job. Off topic: The market of devilgotchi currently seems to be flooded with white ones^^ But white is along with purple-white my least favorite color among devilgotchi.
  4. The only thing I'm scared of, is the transplantation of the sound chip. I did that once and the sound was more silent afterwards, even though I was very careful. The sound chip is embedded in a little molten plastic of the shell... I don't know how easy it is to firmly embed the sound chip in another shell and if the sounds sounds the same afterwards. How would you do that?
  5. Yes, this is also my current idea. I'm already looking for a black Tama. Sigh, they are rather rare and expensive, too. Unfortunately, I can not see the tama in the link.
  6. I even opened it up furthermore, and tried to get out the screws from the backside. I tried to screw screws in the screw holes fro the backside, hoping the broken shafts will be pushed out, too. Good theory, but this absolutely does not work. The only thing I can do, is putting the poor thing it in another shell. I wonder if I should.... if a had a black backside, Nobody would even notice....
  7. I bought a Devilgotchi and I tried to remove the screws. (I used a little mechanical oil before) (Of course I used the right screwdriver) I thought already I had it, but then both screw heads just broke off!!! (They broke very near the screw head) The screw shafts still remain in the shell and they also don't stick out a little. look for yourselves: I don't need to say, I'm devastated. Still I ask you guys, do you think there is a (destruction free) way to remove the screws?
  8. Hello, I'd like to know about your experiences with batteries of Tamagotchi Ancestors. I have the feeling that I can only raise two adult characters until they die and then the battiers are dead. That very frustrating and I already wonder if I got faulty batteries. I use VARTA Batteries.
  9. I only wanted to show my newest "creation" i got the clear versions of Osu and Mesutchi. The male one is clear black with white buttons and a white cap and the female is clear with black buttons and clear black cap. I always thought they would look much better with fitting caps and fitting buttons. Otherwise it is irritation for the eyes, looks so mismatched. So I opend them botch and switched the buttons. I also had to open them because of other reasons. Heres the Original: Heres the creation of Dr. Frankentama: How do you like it? Which one do you like better?
  10. Devilgotchi surgey was successful! The screen is now right back in, everything works fine. Btw: Its not very easy to open a Devilgotchi. Unlike normal 90s Tamagotchis, Devils have 4 more extra screws, holding the motherboard in place. That makes it much more difficult. I just hope the LCD bleed will vanish over time. I think so, but if not, also not a drama. Trying to get the twins failed. I had Oyajidebiru with high DP, it didnt becme the Girldevil, it became the pumpkin head instead. Maybe try have Oyajidibiru with low DP next time.
  11. It would work, but the icons were different. I'd never sacrifice the wicked devil icons, they're so great. 🙂
  12. Ok, I have a new explanation. I think the screen is put in upside down. Its rather hard to notice, but here's a picture of proof: The Tamagotchi Devil Screen looks tilted... It must have been opened and put together incorrectly, I bought it used long ago. *Sigh* I think I have to open it and put the screen back in the correct position. I think the side with the round part need to point downwards. I have some experience now, because I had to open up the Angel (reference in the pic above) . Still very disliking the imagination of opening up some >$300 item..... *shiver* The LCD "leakage" or what this is seems to have gotten better with the time running it (Probably it healed from all the love^^) I'm currently trying to get the demonic twins, after that trial, i'll open it up. I currently already have old geezer Oyajidebiru. ^^
  13. I already wiped with vinegar and also tried alcohol, i even tried to scratch off corrosion with a screwdriver. It still does not work. It is the metal of the contact that is corroded and that cant be wiped off. A nail file? I somehow can not imagine how to do that in this case:
  14. Ok, forget about this one. This Tamagotchi angel has sadly a corroded battery contact, it wont work at all. :'-(
  15. Hello! I bought an old tamagotchi angel, the package must have been stored at a sunny place, the shell has a little bit yellow discoloration from one side. Its minimal but I'd like it better without discoloration. (I know, i have ODC^^) Does anybody know how i could remove the sun discoloration? I currently try to cover the area with a hydrogen proxide 3% damp cloth. In reality it's worse like in the picture:
  16. I think Gundam markers work very good and are absolutely suitable for this. I repainted the silver wings of my Devilgotchi with it and the paint lasts well. You can not wipe the (completely dired) paint away with your finger, the paint only goes off when you scatch with your fingernail BUT thats the same with the tamagotchi native paint designs. Fist test the colors, if they are the same as your tamas design colors. You have to remove the greases from the surface very you want to paint very carefully, i used vinegar-water solution for this and a cotton stick. Don't paint with the marker tip, use a very very fine brush to apply it. (A nailart brush) Paint a spot on a (matal) surface, like a tray or something, then mix the painted spot to get an even silver color (the silver consist of these metallic particles, they have to be mixed well to create an even silver) and carefully apply the color to vintage tamagotchi wings. Paint 3 thin layers over the chipped areas and be careful that they blend in with the native silver wings color. This way the result should be so perfect as like the tama is new and in mint condition. Let every layer dry for a long time. The result: Good as new!!!! I already bought the standard set Gundam markers where i also get white, red, yellow, black, etc so i can also perfectly repaint the faded "Devilgotch" design and other faded designs. Drawing and painting skills are advantageous. I can recommend Gundam markers for it. (no long term experience how the color last under rougher conditions)
  17. I really only have very minor damage at very littlelest details. I don't want to paint a whole shell. This is an example, what i want to repaint: (Say hi, to Ningyotchi❤️) You see, extremely minor scratch in the painting and my other tamas has similar minor damages. Using sandpaper seems not like a good idea unless i want to completely do a custom shell design... I think i can risk trying gundam markers. If the worst is, that they might faint, no problem. I think i have to free the tama surface from grease first, but i want to do it very gently. What could it use for that?
  18. This is exactly my concern. I ordered a silver gundam marker for the protruding wings that are always prone to paint fading. I will see how good gundam marker paint will last in this purpose. But some people maybe play with action figues? 😄
  19. Its at the same time offering a tip tho. 🙂
  20. Hello! I recently restarted few of my older Tamagotchis. Sadly, some have faded shell designs, rubbed off of faded letters, or scratches in the shell paintings. I think this does apply for any tamagotchi with painted shell designs. <---- this is an example. Not mine. My designs, letterings are luckily only a very, very little faded. Im a person who likes his tamas in best condition possible and i do have good drawing skills. These little damages of mine would be very easy to touch up with a suitable paint. I tried to repaint the silver wings of my angelgotchi with a silver permanent marker but it got rubbed off very quickly, its seems not permanent enough on plastic. I wonder with what i can repaint the shell designs best. i thought of Nail polish, but i think nail polish does not dry as flat as the original paint and it would be visible that it was repainted. Do you guys have any tips for me? How about gundam markers? These are intended for painting action figures. Do anyone knows them? Are they more rub resistant?
  21. Oh, yes, indeed! Thank you so much, that was was i was searching for. I bought it. I'm so looking forward to it. It was the only one left, that i bought Its new and it was a reasonable price as well. Thank you again so much! Do you know where i can find a pink Tamagotchi angel case? One oft these with glitter <3, they seem to be sold out everywhere, too.
  22. Hi! I want to buy a japanese tamagotchi angel with angel icons, these with a winged butt. Like this: Unfortunately I dont know how to figure out what icons it will have. I find some tamagotchi angels online with the new angel like icons, but the majority of packings have the original style icons. Does the internal icons are guaranteed to be the same as of the packaging sticker?
  23. Hello, there! I recnetly thought about a possible may to make Tamagotchi screen protector. There are some available online, but for ridiculously high prices. I have many vintage tamagotchis and id need 1,8mm screenprotectors for them. So i thought, if i buy a square shaped paper punch out device, i could make tamagotchi screenprotectors from phone screen protector films. There are even phone screenprotector foils with glitter integrated in them. I have not yet tested it, but maybe its a great idea. Of coure, I could cut the phone screenprotector with scissors but the edges would not perfectly adhere anymore then. How do you like this idea? here is the glitter screen protector foil on ebay.com if you dont find a paper punch out in the right size, look on aliexpress
