Hey Tamagotchi FanGirls!

Really hype today (Partly cause I literally just booted up my LPS Tama) for some reason!

So My LPS started up like how you would when you just got a new brand of VPet for the first time and have no idea what you are doing with it!

 

Well first of all I had no idea what I was doing (of course) and somehow ended up in a train station being carted around in a train like it was nobodys business XD

Then I went to the doctors I think? Not exactly sure but I could just make out a catipillar or something next to me.

Then the screen froze😬

Yeah, rough start.

Is there a de-bug button or something like that?

(Btw the screen froze on the bottom of what seemed like a massive building? Not exactly sure!

Any help would be approved!

Hasbro actually still has the instructions available online, for these virtual pets! You can find them in PDF format here.

 

The instructions say that if it freezes, you'll need to get a pen or a paperclip and press the reset button. They also show where that button is.

 

Hopefully the rest of the information there will be handy, too - have fun! :D

Yeah, restart it. I used to ha- wait, I DO have an old LPS game and so the V-Pet could be similar in a few ways. You start off seing all the pets in the adoption centre then you get 3 pets (although the V-Pet only has 1 I think) and they get taken to your pet shop on a train. Then you arrive in a field and feed the pets and keep them happy. I think games earn Kibble (the currency) and running around as there are Kibble coins on the floor. So you play games and yeah, that's the DS game. With the V-Pet you said there was a train, then a doctors - that confuses me - so next you may find yourself in a field. Do they have the icons above and below the screen like other tamas? If so, from there it could be just like a tama/confused tama. xD I think that's all I know... Good luck!

Trouble is.. the reset button does not work! No matter how much I try its almost.. jammed? The cat is still on the screen in the train station and nothing happened, then again I dont want to go raking about in the programming because I dont want it to break.

 

EDIT:

I dont have the LPS DS game (even though I have a DS Lite) but that sounds familiar! Yeah there was a doctors or something like that but that was it, and about a million other buildings and stuff along with it! How do people call these boring?

OK... They have... 3 buttons? :/ Try A+C and different button combinations. Maybe one'll reset.

 

Yes, there are lots of buildings. (In order of LEFT to RIGHT) The photo/collections place. In here you can view how many pets you have, playsets, accessories, ect. The boutique. In the store you can buy hats, glasses and accessories and dress up your pet! The store. You can buy accessories, playsets, pets and more here for Kibble. Then I think it's the place where you connect with other Nintendos to play games. So yeah. :) I really hope you can get it to work - oh, I know! With your mini, you got it new and pulled the tab, right? If you can get a small piece of paper, fold it in half, and carefully push it into the side by the batteries, y'know, then pull it out, it may restart. But perhaps cover the paper in sellotape so if the batteries are really hot there won't be a fire...? Talk to your parents about that method first though, as they'll know better than me. xD

Just to let you know, there are only 2 buttons! (Reset it on the back) It also came used, and there is no pull tab slot anywhere to be seen.

Oh. :/ Hmm... :o Idk then... I can't think of anything... unless you try un-jamming the reset button? Just try and poke it until it gets out... um... unscrew the back. Take out the batteries and put them back in. Maybe that'll reset it?

Taking out the batteries and putting them back in may be the last option you've got... I'm sorry :( Did the seller list it as faulty...? If not maybe you could return it and find another LPS V-Pet...? I'm really sorry, let me know if they mentioned any faults.

I really don’t want to send it back and probably can’t because my dad was the one to buy it, and it does not reset when you put in new batteries of what I know of.

Good news: I unjammed the reset button, and it works again!

Bad news: Screen froze on me again when I just wanted to wake him up from sleep mode (turns off after 2 minuets) had to reset the whole thing!!! It made a weird noise and then pixels came up on the top and bottom of the screen, the buttons did not do anything so I was stuck unless I reset it! Is there a de-bug button in it?

Ah... IDK how much you did but you may have to reset... I saw a topic about glitches you can do on those pets and how to turn it back to normal, maybe the 'back to normal' thing would work? I'll see if I can find it for you...

The sound keeps on lagging and stuff honestly expected more from Hasbro but maybe mines just faulty. Just me and my luck XD

Have you tried fresh, known-good batteries (not super-cheap ones), coupled with a reset as per the instructions?

      Hello ladies and gentlemen!
      I thought it’s time to talk about the issues that most tamagotchi lovers are dealing with, specifically talking about the technical problems with the Meets and ON. 
      I’ve seen a ridiculous amount of people complaning all over social media, about their “bugged” toys, and sadly we haven’t heard anything from Bandai regarding those issues.
      Two common issues so far that I’ve seen, the first one is that your tamagtochi is not growing up (also known as Peter Pan Syndrome), The other one is the device resets itself (personally happened to me) and that happened when I married a tamagotchi through the official app. Not sure if it was because the other tama was carrying a corrupted data. That takes us now to MyMeets app users, it will force people to be cautious and be careful who they marry their tamas with.
      All of these issues are killing the experience and the joy to play with our favorite toy! 
      I would like to know what you guys think and if there’s anything we could do to make Bandai aware of these issues and if there’s a way that we could avoid them?

      Due to the Meets and ON being found by several reviewers of the ON to be able to connect, after Bandai US stated they would not be able to, some in the community began to feel that if they were wrong about the two connecting that Bandai US was wrong about the bugs and glitches in the Meets being fixed in the ON was also not correct.
      I messaged Bandai US about this. Bellow is the message I sent them and their response. The blackout information is my name to protect my privacy.

      Hello! When I was about 10 years old, maybe younger, I saw a digital virtual pet/device in Target for pretty cheap... I think it was $10 or less. But anyway, I only saw it ONCE and the next time I went to Target, it wasn't there. I've never seen or heard about it since then, and I even looked through some of those oddpet websites but I don't think I found it... I'm not sure if it was even a pet, maybe just some other random animal-related device.
       
      But anyway, I remember the toy or packaging being mostly red. It was rectangle-shaped, with only two buttons, and it was at a 45-degree angle in the packaging. I thought it was called "My Pet Shop" or something similar, but I googled that and couldn't find anything accurate. I think there was a building on the packaging, presumably a pet shop, and there were some pixelated animals including a bat.
       
      Does this pet ring any bells? I doubt it, but it's worth a shot asking.

      So, I've been looking into getting a Tamagotchi Friends. I wasn't impressed with the Tama-go but this looks more appealing to me and as a collector, I'm probably going to get at least one eventually. For those who own a Tamagotchi Friends, would you say you enjoyed it? Would you say having more than one made it more fun or was a single "Friends" good enough?
       
      FTR, I do own the color versions so I know it would be a "downgrade" to get a Tamagotchi Friends.

      I've been thinking about buying a yuki penguin, but I wanted to know if you can mute the sound on it and/or pause via the time screen like you can with color tamas. Thanks! :3

      Hi. I was just wondering if any of you have/know about the Vmigo? If you don't know what I mean then here is a video of a commercial that was on TV a while back:
       

       
      The most well known 1 that is in the advert (and the 1 that I have) is the dog version. It came with a device that you can hook up to your TV. They also do other VMigos as well. I think a cat 1 and a baby 1 and maybe another 1. It came with a lefelet and these are the only ones that I can remember. These things are good but it is hard to earn money and look after. If you are thinking about using/getting these I can tell you 1 thing. It uses a lot and I mean A LOT of battery's! Especially when you are trying to get the good care award. So anyone know about these? I will upload a picture probably tomorrow of it and maybe a video of the game-play if anyone wants me to do it. It might take a while for the game-play video if I do it though because I don't have any battery s left! I also wont be able unfortunately to do a video of the TV console because it needs EVEN MORE BATTERY'S and it is not compatible with the type of TV I have now. I might be able to if I get out the vintage TV. If it is still working...
