Battery dying, JUST got my Tamagotchi..

Recommended Posts

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.. :(

Are you using "cheap", old, or possibly defective batteries? Do you have a volt tester?

 

Is there any unusual markings, stains, or anything out of the ordinary in the battery compartment?

 

Have you messed with it anyway? Did the previous owner mess with it? (If it was used)

No I'm not.. Actually, It's working now. I just had to reset it a few times. ^_^

If this is a connection version tamagotchi that you are talking about I've heard that it's sometimes a common issue for the batteries to just die in them. I guess some versions just literally suck the life out of the battery in a matter of a few hours.

No tamagotchi version "sucks the life" out of a battery.

The tamas are made to work with these batteries, so the problem wouldn't be in a whole version of tamas. ;)

 

 

Mostly the problem is the battery, not the tama.

Inserting batteries of another brand would usually solve the problem.

 

Sometimes nothing is wrong with the battery, but something is stuck on the battery or in the tama, stopping them from contact.

 

No offense or anything Purn, please don't take the criticism personally! :mellow:

This happened to my tama-go before...

The battery died (I had my tama-go for 2 years) so I put new one's in

and it died again! I put new ones again and it failed to turn on so I put in

a different brand of battery's and it works again so it can happen to anyone

      Hello everyone,
      I just unpacked my new Tamagotchi V4. And I'm experiencing some technical difficulties.
      The Situation:
      I've put the time after my radio clock, right in time. Time passed normally.  I've noticed that when my Tamagotchi goes to bed, the time went faster. The next morning there was a difference from 46 seconds. During the day the time passed normally, until he goes to bed. Then the same problem happens again. For a day it is no big deal, but when it all sums up, it's quite annoying.
      I hope that somebody can help me.
      kind regards,
      98mametchi98

      So I recently bought a used entama and because I don't read Japanese I'm still figuring it out but anyway I have only had it a couple of weeks and it has  kept saying that the battery has run out. But when I press the reset button it's fine! Until a couple of hours later it dose the same thing?!? Is it just my tama? Is that common for old used and beaten up tamas? Thank you for taking the time to read xxx

      Is there a health meter on the Gudetama tamagotchi? I was looking for it. I can’t really see how my Gudetama is feeling like the other tamagotchi’s.
      it would be great to find out.
      thanks!
       
      I just bought the Gudetama just today so I’m new to this. ( So use to the original tamagotchi omg )

      Hi there! 
      So I received my Eevee Tamagotchi two days ago and so far I'm pretty happy with it. It's pretty easy to satisfy and not needy at all. But there are two things I can't seem to figure out:
      1. Sometimes Eevee beeps at me for no reason at all. Even if it is completely happy. There's no way to dicipline Eevee for beeping without any reason, so I wonder: Why does Eevee do that? Am I missing something?
      2. Has anyone figured out yet how to evolve Eevee into an Espeon/Umbreon? 
      Thanks in advance! :)

      This comes as absolutely no surprise as we have seen the leaked images MONTHS ago, even before the Tamagotchi Meets was announced. Today, Bandai formally announced the Tamagotchi Meets Pastel version. This new version will be added to the Tamagotchi Meets lineup and feature some new locations, characters, and more!
      The Pastel version comes in two different designs, one in white, and the other in purple. Both feature unique floral faceplates to match their shells and differentiate themselves from the original Tamagotchi Meets version.
      Wha else is new on this version? New locations! Pastel version will include two new locations, Easter Land and Flower Garden. These locations are so beautiful and will feature some new characters along with some familiar faces! Easter Land is all about the upcoming Easter holiday, everything seems to be egg shaped, pastel colored, and bunny themed. Flower Garden looks like a beautiful spring garden, everything is in bloom and very colorful, there are several gardens laid out amongst the gorgeous landscape - breathtaking!

      So what about those characters? Well in Easter Land you’re going to meet four new faces pictured above all the characters are Easter themed and so adorable. Flower Garden we have two returning characters, and one familiar face! Butterflytchi, and Yotsubatchi can be found in Flower Garden, and a new variant of Furawatchi decorated in flowers, and a pink cape!
      No word on pricing yet, but it should be along the same price as the Tamagotchi Meets. The Pastel version will be available on shelves in Japan on March 9th, this is just in time for Easter and right before the official start of spring! We are so excited about this version, are you planning on getting one?
