Getting rid of scrathes? I'm I doing it right?

Recommended Posts

Well, I love the design of my TMGC+C and TamaGo, but the way the screen was made so round makes them EXTREMELY EASY TO SCRACTH, I mean, I've been taking the carefully inside a sock all the time I take them with me, and the screen gets scratched I don't know why. My Music Star doesn't have a SINGLE srcatch and I've taken it everywhere in my bag without a single protection, so I'm guessing is the round shape and the materials what makes them so scratchy.

 

I recently bought some displex for mobiles with regular screen (non touch), I'm guessing that's the right one for the Tamagotchi's right? I heard it can help a lot to make the screens look like new, and I don't know anyone who has screwed their Tamagotchi's by doing so, so I guess it works? o3o

 

Also bought some iphone protectors for my uncle (the pack of 6 was cheaper than just 1 lol) and I'm keeping 3 of them, could I cut them and put them into my Tamagotchi's after applying the displex on them? or will it do something weird? it doesn't matter if it's a protector for a touchable screen right? :(

 

I hope you can help me guys, because I'm trying to keep my tama's in good condition as well as I can :(

Yeah putting on a screenprotector after applying displex is okay. I've never tried to fix scratches personally but I've heard that's the right thing to do :)

I actually retailed a piece of touch-screen protector and applied it to my ID-L: it's working fine, but it "curls up" at the angles. So, if the TamaGo and TMGC+C don't have a "border around the screen" (you know, if the screen is at the same level of the rest of the tmgc) it will wear off in no time. My screen protector stays where it is just thanks to the border. About Displex: I don't know, but I'd like to use it for my V4 because the previous owner scratched it a bit and I'd like to fix his damages. But I read sometimes it can do bad stuff to your screen :/ I read so many different things that I don't know what to trust in.

I've been lucky I guess; no serious scratches to any of my Tamas. Small scratches I can live with, as long as the screen isn't affected. I do keep all Tamas in pouches of some sort, and that has helped tremendously. They're going to get small scratches regardless of what you do. That's just normal for being made of plastic.

Yeah the TamaGo and TMGC+C do not have the screen inside (it's at the same level as the body) the same way as the other tamagotchi's, so that makes them really easy to scratch, I mean I haven't played with my TamaGo at all today and it has a lots of new minor scratches... I don't get how it scratches itself but it's really annoying me .__.

 

I don't think the protector should wear off, it doesn't wear off on mobile phones so why in a tamagotchi? :o But if it does I could just use celotape to hold it there haha

 

And I'm a little bit nervous about displex too, it has worked for most of people, but some of them have had problems, but I guess if it works for most people it must be safe and the other ones did something wrong? I dunno :(

You've been really lucky then! I don't care about the shell, all I care is the screen not getting scratches, but it gets a lot, It gets scratched when I'm not using it aad that doesn't even make sense, I'll post a picture later if my phone works..., is ridicoulous how scratched my TamaGo is even if I have been only 1 week with it, Its the tamagotchi I have been more careful with... As I said I have never been careful with my V6 and the screen and shell look like new, so I don't know what happens to my TamaGo to get scratched so easilly :(

I do use screen protectors as well. They work just fine for awhile, but do wear out and need replacing. Tamas like the Nano with a deep-set screen don't scratch as easily. I think Bandai made them with the screen so close to the surface on purpose. Also, different countries/regions probably use different formulas of plastic. Some types scratch more easily than others. I noticed the screens on Japanese and USA Tamas is different. Japanese tama screens don't scratch as easily in my experience.

well if they wear off guess I'll have to buy more packs (they are cheaper than the batteries anyway), Most tamagotchis have that deep-set screen so they don't scratch, I just happen to have the 2 versions thaat don't have them so the screen gets scratched a lot more. hmmm my TMGC+C also gets a lots of scratches, but I think it gets less than the TamaGo, because I've had the TMGC+C for 2 months and I've taken it everywhere and the TamaGo for a week and I've never taken it outside, it makes sense for the +C to have scratches, but not so much for the Tama-Go xD

 

Also scratches in colour screens don't seem to bother me as much, one can still see properly since they have backlight~

Yep, having the backlight can make a lot of difference. I wish the newer ones were all backlit.

I don't have experience personally with this, but I would suggest looking into what materials go into the adhesive on the screen protector to make sure it won't damage the screen. I'd say go ahead but I dunno.

Usually, screen protectors are held in place by static charge, no adhesive at all. At least the ones I use are.

      The day before I found my old tamagotchi that I had when I was around 8 yrs old. They still work, the buttons don't function well unless if you press on them hard but besides that, I'm currently having no other issues except for one
      I wanted my two visit each other (I know how to do this) but the tamagotchi won't connect. It keeps saying it failed. I'm wondering if it's just because mine are too old and the censors don't work anymore or is there a way to fix this issue? If not then I guess I'm fine with it, at least they still work. Though I would like to know if there is a way, if it exists.
      Here's the image of my tamagotchi, they the old versions, forgot which. Couldn't upload the image onto the post so I upload it on imgur

      (Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post in, but anyways..)
      I just got scammed in Adopt Me!.
      Here's how it went.
      I saw a person in Adopt Me whose description was "Follow me if you want to duplicate your pets".
      So, just out of curiosity, I followed the person.
      Me: "I want to duplicate  my pets."
      Scammer: "sure, just send your pets here."
      I sent four of my ultra rare pets, which I regret doing..
      Scammer: I need more pets in order to duplicate.
      Me: That's all I'm giving you. If you're not going to duplicate them, give them back. Now.
      I started to worry.
      Scammer: Okay, okay. Just-- Wait!
      Me: Hand them over. Now. Please.
      The scammer sends a trade request to me. I decline.
      Scammer: Do you want to duplicate your pets or not?!
      Me: Fine, fine.
      I trade my pets to the scammer, one by one.
      Scammer: Duplicating...........
                         Duplicating..........
      The scammer just ran off. I took off after him/her.
      I just ran and ran. Thank GOD I had made "friends" with her in Roblox so I could teleport to where she was in-game.
      I arrived in her house. She kept locking it, but that didn't stop me.
      Until finally, the scammer decided to stop locking him/her's house.  
      Me: Give my pets back. Please- I'll do anything.
      The scammer didn't say anything. I just kept sending trade requests to her, but the scammer kept declining.. I was panicking.
      The scammer's.. accomplice?: STICK YOUR HANDS UP LADY
      I thought he was the scammer's accomplice because their usernames were almost identical.
      accomplice: GIVE  ME ALL YOUR PETS
      I didn't understand, but suddenly scammer no.1 started dancing.
      I sent yet another trade request to scammer no.1 when THIS happened:
      Scammer No.1: I don't have your pets! I gave them all to him!
      Me, in my mind: WHAT?! Omg, I never should have trusted her..
      I send a trade req. to scammer no.2.
      He  was more sympathetic, so he gave my Shiba Inu, an Ultra Rare, back to me.
      After  that, I only got my common and uncommon pets back. My God, I was so overwhelmed so I just left the server.
      Here's a list of all the pets I lost.
      2x Red Panda(s) [Ultra-Rare] 1x Robin [Common, they just decided to take it because it wasn't in the game anymore.  ] Reindeer [Rare- again, it's not in the game anymore.] Deinonychus [Ultra-Rare, obtainable from the Fossil Egg] Sabertooth (tiger) [Ultra Rare, Fossil Egg] Frog (Ultra-Rare) [unobtainable. thats why they took  'im.] Dilophosaurus [Rare, Fossil Egg] Pterodactyl [Rare, fossil egg] Bunny [rare, obtainable from permanent in-game eggs] Woolly Mammoth [rare, fossil egg] Glyptodon [uncommon, fossil egg] Neon Cat, my first ever Neon. 13 pets. I know. 
      If anyone wants to help me git my pets back, here's what  you can do.
      -Walk up to anyone in the game and ask them to show you their pets.
      I only named one pet, so that might help. The cat's name is "Kit n e o n".
      -Look for anyone in the server with the words:
      "follow me if you want to duplicate your pets"
      "follow me if  you want a fly potion"
      Help is most appreciated. If you find any of my pets, please contact my Discord. I'll provide my username below.
      And if you ever get hold of any of them, please send a friend request to me in Roblox and give it to me.
      My Roblox username: Tacoburritotchi
      My Discord username: tacoburritotchi#1731

      I was wondering if they could connect because i found one for a low price and i wanted to see if itd work with my english tamagotchi v4.5 since my v6 cant connect to it. if it cant is it still worth the buy if you want a v4 tamagotchi? i did hear the entama had some differences from the english v4 so i was wondering if that alone would be worth it. its also in good quality (atleast for me) for its lower price

      So I got my Tamagotchi (he's a gen 2), and the second he hatched, he never left my side. I named him Pete and I brought him every where, and I made sure he was always full, always happy, his discipline meter was all the way up, and his weight was healthy for his age. But after 3 days, I look at him and he was flying away in his spaceship. I just wanna know what I did wrong, 'cause I thought I was doing a good job.

      Hello I'm new to this website and I've been using my old tamagotchi connection v3 for about a month now. The screen on my device is fairly beat up and I was curious if I could find some official or third party screen replacement for the Tamagotchi Connection v3.

      So I got 2 tamagotchis, a gudetama one and a pacman one. At some point I noticed the pacman one was quieter than the gudetama one and I was wondering if it was already like that or it just changed and I have to fix it. Can someone compare the sounds for me on their own pacman and gudetama so I don't go crazy over this.
