  1. Hello, you can always use the MyMeets program to select the Tama with octopus genes and marry it All you need is a pc with Windows 10, and a Bluetooth 4.0 dongle that supports BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy). Here's a link to the MyMeets program: https://tamatown.com/downloads/
  2. Ah dang, you did everything right, then there isn't really much else you can do except put in buttons from another vintage Tama that will fit Regarding your screw issue, the Japanese vintage Tamas (and probably even later versions like the Akai, Japanese Connection, etc) use JIS screws (JIS means Japanese Industrial Standard). While a Phillips will 'fit', it won't fit as perfectly tight as a JIS screwdriver will, and every time it slips, it will slightly strip the screw head, making it even more difficult to attempt opening up the Tama again. This was by far one of the best investments I've ever made for cleaning my Tamas and opening them up: https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B00E55DL4I/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (this is the handle) https://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B0751K53BJ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (these are the precision bits) The most important bit is that black bit (the number 0) in the 2nd link. It's a perfect fit for the vintage Tamas (and also for screws under the backplate for the Connection series, and also what I used to open up my Tamagotchi Friends to clean it). I had a similar issue like yours with my Mesutchi which I got last Christmas which came new in box, but one of the screws was just dead stuck in there after all these years (Mesutchi is also a vintage from 1997). Try as I might with the Phillips, I couldn't get it to budge a millimetre, and each attempt was stripping the screw even worse. So, I ordered that set (only took like 4 days to get here), pressed firmly into the screw, and it was a piece of cake to get it out. Literally something which was beyond frustrating became such an easy task when you've got the right tools to work with. If you want some further reading about this subject: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/tamazone/stuck-tamagotchi-screws-guide-t22127.html Oh, and get those batteries out of there asap once you manage to open it. Although they still work, they might be leaking, which will eventually start causing corrosion on your battery contacts. Best of luck
  3. Awesome!! REALLY happy to hear it worked after your efforts Enjoy your vintage Tama As for the buttons not being SUPER responsive, it's hit and miss unfortunately from my experience, but at least you still end up with it being usable. When I took apart my (and also my friend's) V4s and cleaned them, the buttons feel almost like a new Tama, did the same procedure for my Tamagotchi Friends, and I can't say I had the same results, but at least it became usable (they weren't working AT ALL before the cleaning). Just to be sure, you did also clean the underneath of the buttons with a cotton bud and contact cleaner/alcohol, not just the contacts on the circuit board? If you did, there isn't really anything else you can do I imagine (except maybe switching in a different set of buttons that fit from another Tama that's a similar model), but just putting it out there just in case. Either way, glad it's in a state where you could still have fun with it at least
  4. That's a P2 re-release, not a Mini. According to the Tama wiki for the originals (https://tamagotchi.fandom.com/wiki/Tamagotchi_(1996_Pet)), it states: 'It will evolve into a teen at the age of 3, and into an adult by the age of 6.' Yours being age 8 and not an adult yet is quite weird. Have you kept it on pause for an accumulated time of 2 days you reckon? It will need to catch up and make up for the paused time if so.
  5. Hello while I don't know the size of the screws, I do know that a JIS size 0 screwdriver fits perfectly for those screws under the backplate, maybe that could help you in finding out the size of those screws.
  6. I would try cleaning it as Penguin-keeper stated. It could be that you can't set the time because the B button isn't actually making contact. It happened to a friend of mine a couple of months ago where her C button wasn't working AT ALL, no matter how hard you press on it. I've revived more than one of my (and also my friend's) Tamas by doing the recommended cleaning. Here's a detailed guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQ8IKn33OMA That guide is for the Connection series, but they should be quite similar. Just work slowly and diligently Oh, and be very careful when you pry both sides of the shell open so you don't rip the speaker wires, everything is explained quite nicely in that vid. Best of luck!
  7. Awesome info about the sleep schedule @Berks Regarding the age up times, it's an hour for baby to child, and 24 hours for the child and teen evolutions
  8. You might want to look into Displex or Polywatch to buff those scratches from the screen
