Tamagotchi P's shut off?

Recommended Posts

Alright, so this is a more recent issue which I have not encountered before on any Tama I own.

 

So I started my Tamagotchi P's up two days ago. I added new batteries, as the last ones were dead. It ran well for a while, but an hour or two later, I went to press the buttons to check on my Tama, and the screen wouldn't turn on/wake from sleep mode. The tamagotchi was completely unresponsive. I naturally opened the back to perform a reset, but that didn't work either. I had to instead remove the batteries and put them back in to reset the tamagotchi and get it to turn on again. This seems to happen every day. Two or 3 times yesterday and then again when I woke up this morning I found it had done it again. My poor Tama will never grow if this keeps happening! To my knowledge, nothing has specifically triggered it. Whether I have used the tamagotchi seconds ago or an hour ago, it still seems to happen. It's also very random, as there is no battery warning, so I can't imagine they're just dying I am really not sure here. I could use any help.

 

The batteries I put in were brand new, and when I got this tama I had gotten it new in box. I definitely cannot afford to have to get a new one, so hopefully there is some kind of fix.

I know you mentioned that the batteries are new but i recommend perhaps trying another batch of batteries? (from a whole new package) Maybe the batteries you have are faulty :huh: Better that than your tama! Or instead you can perhaps test those batteries out with another electronic device to see if it reacts the same way your tama did. Either way I really hope it works out! :unsure:

I'll try that as soon as I can get new batteries!

Also it happened again today. It restarted while I was out, and then just a bit ago I was buying something from the bus (That comes when you go outside) and the screen went white and froze. This was fixed by pressing the reset button though.

How are the battery contacts? Does there seem to be any leakage from the batteries on them? It sounds like you've let some dead batteries sit in there for quite a while.

 

It's recommended that you generally do not leave batteries in electronics for extended periods of time, as they can corrode and destroy the contacts.

Its Probably not the Tamas Fault, it might be the batteries. This happens with my V4 so I wound reccomend checking the screws on the motherboard. Maybe just some mis-contact!

It could be the motherboard, try changing the batteries first and if that doesn’t Worcester adjust the motherboard. Hopefully this will help!

      I am making a guess that this is the right place to put this but honestly I don’t know if it is. 
      Anyway I want to pre order a tamagotchi P!x because tamagotchis usually sell out really quickly in my area. I also live in a rural area so stores don’t get deliveries more than like once a month and if I don’t pre order it there’s a good chance I have to wait years to get it. 
      the only problem I’ve encountered is the camera on the P!x. I need to know how much you have to use it to care for your friend or if there might be a way to get out of having to use it.  I’m blind so the camera might provide a huge problem for me depending on how much I have to use it. The touch keys shouldn’t be a problem so long as the tama still makes some sort of sound. 
      I know no one is going to know for sure but the more I can start getting an idea of if I’ll even be able to use it the better. That way I don’t have to waste my time with it if I can’t. (I’ll still feel a little bit left out because the newer ones are getting less and less accessible to me and honestly I have a feeling that soon I’ll have to just stop getting the new ones all together)
      thabks !

      A while ago, I bought 2 used Tamagotchi Connections at a pawn shop. They worked just fine, but the battery cover screw was corroded in both of them:


      I searched the internet for ways to remove the corrosion. Some people would even use ketchup, but the most effective way was letting the screws sit in vinegar, then using a toothbrush to remove the rest of the corrosion, and finally cleaning them with alcohol. However, due to me being busy with school, a year passed and I still hadn't tried cleaning the screws, until a few days ago when I had some spare time and decided to try it out. I thought, why not demonstrate the whole process on TamaTalk to help people out? 
       
      First, I removed the screws from the battery covers. Tamagotchi Connection battery covers have some sort of retainer that keeps the screw from falling out. To remove the screw, I had to hold the retainer using my fingernail, then pull on the screw while twisting it counterclockwise. Now, both the screw and the retainer came out. The retainer was also a bit corroded, as well as the screw hole in the battery cover. I cleaned those with alcohol.
      Now, the fun part. I let the screws sit in apple cider vinegar for around 30 minutes.

      Then, I scrubbed them with a toothbrush several times. Both the screws came out looking way better, but one of them still had some ugly black marks where the corrosion was. As a last resort, I sandpapered it. I have no idea what the exact grit of the sandpaper was, but eyeing it, it seemed to be around ~200 grit. This improved the appearance of the screw drastically. Here are the results!


      Comparing it to a non-corroded screw of another tama, the finish looks less shiny. But it's a lot better than a corroded screw! 
      I hope this tutorial was easy to understand! If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

      Heya,new to tamagotchi.
      Found a morino tamagotch in a thrift store
      But it wasn't working so i replaced the very old batteries with semi old ones.
      It kinda worked until the batteries ran out
      Though i noticed that theres something wrong
      Like,it turns off and on with a light slap
      So it means egg after egg after egg
      Then i bought some new ones but while screwing it on to close the screen fades to nothing
      But when the lid isnt fully closed,it works just fine.though that'd make it hard to put in a bag or my pocket
      Also works without the lid except everytime the batteries move it turns off then on again.
