  1. Hello, folks! In spite of easter, I decided a few days ago to run my Usatama in celebration. I went ahead today and removed the old batteries, and popped in the new. I’d done this numerous times before, so I didn’t think anything of it. As soon as I put the new ones in, the screen was black. All the pixels were filled in (which gave me hope, as that meant the batteries were making contact) apart from a few ‘scrambled’ ones in the top left corner. I took them out immediately, as I didn’t want to damage in device further and permanently damage the screen. When my Dad got back (the one who helps me with all of my Tama-issues) he tried himself, with more dead pixels in different patterns. He tried resetting, nothing. There were just random pixels on the screen (image attached for reference to what they roughly looked like at the time) with no response from the reset or ABC buttons. We tried again, this time the clock displaying and the device beeping. As I finally thought it worked, the ‘12’ which was supposed to be on the left side of the screen was.. missing? I tried to click ABC over and over, but it appeared to be frozen. Took them out again, and put them back in. Not expecting much. There was more garbage on the screen and then.. clicking? It sounded like something was going horribly wrong in the battery compartment. It went on clicking until I demanded my Dad to take out the batteries before it completely short-circuited itself. Since then, it’s been displaying dead pixels on and off, but most of the time nothing at all. The buttons are unresponsive, along with the speaker and reset. I also want to mention a few things before I get suggested them, as I have already tried most of the Google results provided! The brand of batteries is Duracel, which is the same brand I used for the batteries previously, along with all of my other virtual pets. I’ve never had any issues with their batteries until now. While all of this was happening, the battery cover was off, meaning nothing was causing pressure on the batteries or LCD. I’ve ran this Tamagotchi without any hassle before, this is the first time it has happened. The batteries and compartment are completely clean and intact. I’d appreciate it greatly if anyone had any advice or ideas on how to resolve this issue, it would mean a lot to me and my Tama! Here is what we are getting on the screen right now (With batteries in). When we take them out, simply nothing is displayed. It was showing completely black before, but it looks similar to this; You can clearly see faint and darker lines scattered across the screen, but before it was similar to garbage sprites and pixels. Hopefully this gives people a better idea of what i’m dealing with!
  2. I've been slowly converting my large Tamagotchi Connection series collection onto rechargeable batteries to save on my pocketbook and help the environment, and I mistakenly purchased some Zackees brand rechargeable 2032 batteries on Amazon. I was on a budget and they were cheap. Don't repeat my mistake! Stay far away from these things XwX - I bought 8 batteries, only 3 worked. That's less than 50%. Not Good. - One of the ones that did not work tried to BURST INTO FLAMES. (My Tama was unharmed, thank goodness, but I did burn my finger) Sadly they didn't qualify for a refund >:T I will be leaving an unhappy Amazon review. If anyone knows what brands/where to buy GOOD rechargeable batteries, please let me know.
  3. So I apparently left some old batteries in my Tamagotchi Friends and they leaked. I cleaned out the corrosion as best I could with vinegar but it still won't turn on with new batteries. Is this a hopeless cause? or are there any tricks to getting my Tama to work again?
  4. Hello, I bought a tamagotchi off eBay a month ago and when I replaced the batteries the new ones seemed to be a bit loose. I played fine for two days but then the screen just went blank and when I pressed on the back it restarted. Now it won't last through a day. I placed some eyeglass pads behind the batteries to make the case for tighter but that only helped for a day before it reset. Any advice?
  5. I am pretty sure it is completely unopened. Will the batteries have corroded and rendered it unplayable? And a side question. Can I use a #0 Phillips screwdriver or do I need to prioritize searching for a JIS one?
  6. Anyone know what brand and type of batteries work with these vintage tamagotchis? Just wanna know which work the best~
  7. I don't actually have a Morino yet, hopefully I can win the auction lol, but I was wondering what kind of batteries it needs. I know it doesn't use the CR2032 or AAA batteries, so does anyone know which kind it does use? And maybe where I can find them? Thanks! ^u^
  8. I put in two brand new AG13 (LR44) batteries but every minute, the TamaOtch beeps at me and says おはようございます That means Ohayo Gozaimasu; she's basically just saying Hello. But Tamagotchi Wikia says that notice means the batteries are dying ._. I assume that's a mistake and my batteries aren't dying, but I don't know how to get my TamaOtch to stop calling at me every 5 seconds Is there a way? I tried the fourth icon (the fan thingie) but she still won't stop. :/
  9. Does anyone know how to open the battery cover of the Tamagotchi iD L? Whenever I try to open it with a paperclip and a ballpen it won't open. Does this mean its broken or not? I'm a bit worried. 😰😰😰
  10. Hi - first post on the forum. I recently bought an original 1996/97 Tamagotchi, packaged. I haven't had chance to start it yet as I'm on night shifts (not ideal for raising a Tama haha) but I realised, the batteries (x2 CR2032's) must be ancient as far as batteries go. Will they work, not work, break my Tama? I've already ordered some spares but I'm interested. Thanks
  11. I plan to take my ID L with me up to Queensland when I go there for the Christmas holidays, but of course I'll be going by car. Here's the thing: A stuffy car does get quite hot (up to 5-8 degrees hotter than outside at times, and Queensland is normally much warmer than Sydney) and I'm worried about accidentally cooking my ID L or having the batteries explode, especially when the pouch I keep them in is padded and fleecy from the outside and will therefore likely quite warm in extreme heat. This goes for my Tamagotchi P's as well since it's one of my Christmas presents. Would it be safer for me to take out and store the batteries away from my Tamas or would they be fine as they are? If so, how should I store them so they don't get damaged? Note that both sets of course are AAA batteries, one set is rechargeable (ID L) and the other set are the originals that come with the toy by default (P's). Also note that the batteries in the Tamagotchi P's will not be in the toy until I actually get it on Christmas day, travelling up they'll stay in the box, and my dads car boot is covered so our luggage will not be in direct sunlight, and yes, our air conditioner does work so it'll probably be on most of the trip.
  12. Hiyo... For as long as I remember, I've been dumping used Tamagotchi batteries in the trash. I only recently realized it was bad, and why (it's toxic for the environment). But what am I supposed to do with my dead batteries?! I have a whole pile of them on my desk and I don't know what to do with them. There aren't any battery disposal centers around or whatever. So please give me advice!
  13. My p's screen goes black without the low battery warning appearing. You can still hear the sounds and play with it but it's very hard to see, like in old videogame consoles. Sometimes, with a light knock from behind the light seems to come up again, but it's usually not very long until it goes off or starts flickering. It seems like it could be a contact problem with the batteries (which are brand new). Does anyone know if there is a way to fix that? Maybe by messing around a bit with the battery slots or something? Thanks!
  14. Hello everybody, this is the first question I post and I wanted to know 2 things: 1) does anybody knows which battery does the Tamagotchi P2 works with? I threw away the ones that came with it, and the LR44 doesn't seem to be working very well ... they don't seem to fix properly (my tamagotchi works fine and the batteries were brand new) 2) I don't know very much about the lasts tamagotchis that came out, so I wanted to know wich are the color-version ones? I know this may seem really basic but I thought the Tama-go was one and then saw this video and realized it wasn't :s ... thanks everybody!
  15. Hey, guys... Literally this morning, when I was eating my breakfast (and caring for my two Tammys at the same time), I accidentally dropped my P1 in the milk when looking at the clock on it. It worked alright after I dried it off (there wasn't much milk on it), but a few minutes after that it started... well, you could say - malfunctioning. It kept beeping and beeping... First, I thought my Tama was dying. When the P1 (and P2 as well, I think) passes away, if you have the sound on, you'll hear the sinister beeps of a 'flatline'. It is really upsetting, actually, in a way. But I had been taking good care of my little Mametchi, Siro Sirius JimBob Junior. I told my mum and she said that I should just leave it and go to school, then we could see what happens after school. I agreed, but only after a brief attempt at pausing the poor thing... which kind of failed - my little Tammy was going slightly, well, crazy(!). It kept selecting random stuff on the screen when I wasn't even pressing ANYTHING... After school, my mum suggested it was just losing battery (my previous and first Tama, Siro Sirius JimBob - my beloved Ginjirotchi - had lived for an incredibly LOOOONG time... about 50-55 days - Tama Years), but I had to keep hoping that. My mum then got out the screwdriver and pressed 'reset'. I practically SCREAMED when she did that, and said that she 'brutally murdered him'. Then the Egg appeared (as, and I waited the usual five minutes... and, guess what? ... A whole two hours later, the Egg's still here, bouncing up and down. Noo... I sure do hope that it's not kaput. Can anyone please share their views on what this is all about? If you want me to explain it more, just ask. Thank you in advance!
  16. So I recently ordered a Tamagotchi, and received it in the mail today. I was messing around with my Tama, and taking care of it. Suddenly it says the batteries are dead. Obviously I was confused, I mean I just put them in. I figured somebody may have put already dead batteries in the container. I put in another set, then it died once again. I let it sit for a while then put yet ANOTHER set of batteries back in. It was working for a while then it "died" again. This is really frustrating because I just got it today.. I don't know if there's something wrong with it, or I'm doing something wrong.. Is this common? Please help..
  17. Hi everyone. I recently got batteries for all of my Tamagotchis. I got them at the same time, put them in on the same day, and all of them are doing fine....with the exception of my V2. The flashing low battery sign keeps popping up, so I keep hitting reset and download. I have hope that it's a faulty battery, but I'm afraid that my V2 has something wrong with it. Has anyone had this kind of situation? What happened?
  18. I bought a Japanese wave 2 P2 and noticed it had badly corroded contacts from improper storage. I scrubbed it with baking soda and it still didn't work. I tried CLR (Calcium, Lime, and Rust remover) on a cotton swab and scrubbed the contacts with that. Now the tama works again, amazing!
  19. My v4.5 is unusable due to the fact that the batteries only last about eight hours! I buy a brand new battery but it dies overnight. The battery that came with the Tamagotchi worked for a long time, but now the store-bought batteries don't last long at all. And they really are dead because I tested them in my other Tamagotchis and it had the flashing battery icon on the screen. The screen of my v4.5 is REALLY dark and I was thinking that would be the problem, but there is no contrast adjust for this version and I'm not sure how I will ever be able to use my v4.5 properly again! There is only one brand of Tamagotchi batteries here so I can't try different brands, so what should I do?
