Tamagotchi / Virtual Pet Repair! Easy fix

Recommended Posts

Hello!

This post is about vintage, connections and up to uratama. About how to repair them.

My native language isn't English, so this might be a bit of a strange read. ūüėč

If you have a pet that have lazy buttons or fading screen, or maybe doesn't seem to work at all, there is a thing you can do.

You can open up your device, it's easy! Take out all the screws, but remember where they are supposed to sit! Then you can take the screen off. It's No worries! And of it's broken - take the chance to fix it! It's no problem!

Then after you have taken off everything, you clean everything on the circuit board.  Careful! With alcohol or some other ok liquid for cleaning electronic stuff. You do this with a cotton wad stick, like those for the ears... But don't use a used one! Don't be cheap, take a new one. It's worth it.

Then if something is wrong the paper behind the screen on your Tamagotchi, like water damage maybe? Then you can throw away and make a new one! Draw something naughty and put it where the old paper was and TADA! New background.

Make sure to clean the buttons and where they push! Press them a bit insideout and clean.

Well, after everything is clean, you put it together!!! Remember where the screws went??? I hope so. They have different sizes you know. But don't worry - you did! Yay! It wasn't hard at all and there wasn't many of them!

When the little critter is put back together, you put the batteries in and try it out. The screen will be stronger now and the buttons a lot bettet!

But if it still does NOT work it might have something else wrong. You might need to solder. That is a bit more advanced. 

You'll need to change the 47uf capacitor! I'll write how... It's the funny round things with legs. You need to get it out! Cut it out of the circuit board and make sure EVERY part of it is out. Ok? Then you take your new 47uf capacitor and put it in it's place! Make sure it sits the right way! And you solder that capacitator into place! 

But some pets use different capacitators, so get the right uf. Ok? There are different volt in capacitators but Tamas use very little.

Soldering isn't so hard. Save your Tamagotchi!

(If it's just your sound wires, then you can hot glue them.)

Anyway... I hope this wicked post helps a Tamagotchi breeder... Somewhere.

A take apart video!!! Notice the screen. Clean it!

Look! A Good guide for yr EYEs! (This guy knows Tamagotchi!)

Good Luck! ūüßź

I need to add, it's important to put the screen back on the right way. Not upside down! Because menus will look strange then.

      This is a poll for a game I really want Nintendo to make for the Switch to make up for Mario Kart Tour (which I hate a bunch, mostly for its heavy microtransactions). To differentiate from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I want this game to be another Double Dash game and to re-feature EVERY past driver (a la Super Smash Bros. Ultimate) that has been playable at some point in the series' near-30-year history (Petey Piranha, Funky Kong, Wiggler, R.O.B., Pac-Man, Mametchi, etc.)

      If the Tamagotchi anime were to get a full English Dub, which channel/streaming service would be best for it?

      I stumbled across this in a branch of TK Maxx (the UK version of TJ Maxx) today, and I couldn't resist picking it up;

      It's an officially-licensed metal and enamel keychain, featuring a nostalgic element of the original toys that we enthusiasts sometimes bemoan ("Oh no, they only remember the Tamagotchi as a toy that poops and dies!"), albeit humourously framed. I'm pretty happy with this find because it was the only one that they had left and it had been reduced in price to £1.70! (A quick check online tells me that they originally retailed for £7.99, which, even though this is a really nice and surprisingly big keychain, I feel is a little high.)
      These were made by the UK giftwares company Paladone. Their goods are sometimes sold in North America too, so this is just a quick heads-up to let anyone who might be interested know that these are out there, presumably now discounted after the pre-Christmas impulse-buy period for items like this has come and gone.
      Interestingly, even though this is a British product, it doesn't use the angel death-screen from the original Western localised version of the toys, instead opting for the gravestone from the Japanese versions (though without Obaketchi). I'm sure that some people will swear blind that they remember it being this way originally, as a result. But it's still a nice-looking little piece of merchandise, and I certainly can't argue with the price!

      Hello, I am Deru-sama, AKA Dale8998. I have a plan to make an abridged anime containing all 400 episodes.¬†ūüėÄ
       
      However, I need voice actors. You can't have an abridged anime just by cutting up an episode and calling it finished, you have to slap in a bunch of jokes. (For example, Goku squeaking whenever he's crushed in someone's hands during a TFS episode, or Tea being a kleptomaniac in YGOTAS.)
      Here's the questions:
      1. How old are you? (I need you to be 13 or older, because I'm going for a PG-13 audience in order to keep myself from getting COPPA banned. If you don't want to say, just give a range.)
      2. Do you have any experience with voice acting? (If you do, it's a bonus, but first-time actors are fine too.)
      3. What time zone are you in?
      4. When are you available? I try to get one upload a week, but I can do it more slowly or quicker depending on when you're available.
      5. YouTube link?
