I’ll start off by saying, I LOVE cleaning tamagotchi’s. 🧽
I’ve bought a few where people have claimed the buttons don’t work, I’ll take a risk, and purchase them. Once receiving them, I delicately take them apart and see what could possibly be wrong. So far I’ve been lucky that all it is, is that they’ve been taken everywhere by their previous owners/owner, collecting dirt, hair, you name it, and with that collecting around/under the buttons is what makes them not work as well as they should.
After giving them a “bath” and piecing them back together, they work good as new! ☺️ I know these photos aren’t the best in quality, but I had to resize them to be able to upload on here. These two are my most recent ones that I’ve worked on. I wonder who use to own these before they ran into the person I purchased them from?
With that all said, I’ve been on the hunt now for tamagotchi lots/sets that are “broken” and was hoping that people here might be able to point me in the right direction of sellers who do that. I know there were a few on eBay who did, but at the moment I can’t seem to find them selling any.
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.
Recently I've been debating on purchasing a AngelScope virtual pet. Whenever I look up any information on it though, there's very little on it. One being from this site many years ago stating that it's a fortune teller? So I was hoping to make a more recent post on it and see if anyone has anymore information on it! Any bit helps!
One of my own personal questions is, what is the purpose of the three holes on the side of it?
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. 😋
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! 🧐
The QPet Quolor is a bootleg version of the original Tamagotchi + Color. For what it is, it is a fun system that is a nice substitute for those who are not picky and want a similar experience to that particular official version. There are two versions: a normal one that is technically similar to the real one, and a recent new enhancement with improved tech, a power switch, a rechargeable battery, and faceplates.
Upon starting the game, you will be prompted to select between Chinese and English. After that, you must choose from one of 10 characters from the original Tamagotchi Color. There are 5 girls and 5 boys, each with only 3 growth stages including the baby stage. Care is similar to a Tamagotchi, but harder. The first icon is the Scale icon. Food bowls are split into 3 levels, red (almost empty), yellow (medium), and blue (full). With 6 total, it can be hard to maintain especially because the only food that fills an entire bowl is 300 points. Happiness is also made of one massive bar, like the complete one on the TMGC + Color. The best way to fill it is by spamming the Park feature, which is under the Door menu. The next is the Food icon. Rice is the default meal, and bananas the snack. Both can only fill up their respective meters by a little bit, with rice filling 2 bowls. The toilet icon is for when it either has to go poo (it will show smell waves above the QPet) or if it goes on the floor. The next is the Door icon for going places.
To let you in on a secret, the Games are pretty much pointless unless you're really bored. It has balloon popping, apple catching, and memory just like the real one. The games are as simple as they sound, with the only added challenge being the evil card in matching that ends the game if it is selected. Get through 15 rounds of balloon popping or collect 50 apples in order to get 200 points. I'll explain why this is all pointless when we get to the plant store.
School is for *surprise* getting a education. 20 correct answers bring up your Qpet's education level by one. Levels 1 to 3 are construction. Get to at least 4, and it will get a higher paying office job. It can pay up to 100 points per work session, and as low as 20.
Work is, well, I just explained it. This option isn't available until day 3, where your QPet will have one last day before it can only work. On day 11 it will retire.
Market is for food. The first options shown are meals, while the rest are snacks. Some foods only fill 1 part of a single bowl while the most expensive at 300 points fills an entire one. After feeding, it will last for quite a while, so that's nice.
Store is for buying seeds and is the most important money-making feature on this entire game!!!
***To make a lot of money, you will at least need to start with 1,250 points. Get a rose seed and Rapid growth, then plant the rose and use the Rapid Growth to make it instantly grow. Then, go to the Pawn Shop and sell it. You will profit 750 points every time. Rinse and repeat until your QPet is stacked.***
Pawn Shop is for selling plants.
Decoration is for changing the look of your QPet's house, with 2 different types to choose from excluding the default options.
Park is for playing with other QPet characters. This is the best way to increase happiness as it requires zero effort or money whatsoever.
The Amusement Park is what you'd expect. The QPet goes on one of three different types of rides. It is just for fun, as it does not effect stats.
Cinema is a Godzilla movie starring your QPet, who fights and defeats the monster every time. This one also is just for fun.
Travel will allow your QPet to travel to several locations in the human world. Patrick Star will greet your pet, and then it will randomly go on a trip to either the Sydney Opera House, the Great Sphinx of Giza, the Eiffel Tour, the Statue of Liberty, and the Great Wall of China. Each have their own animations, and it is implied that your QPet actually lives in China, not Tamatown.
Society enables the QPet to be a good Samaritan by donating money to charity.
Car Shop is pointless. The car will replace your QPet's sprite when it goes somewhere. This only lasts 30 times before it disappearing. This is the last option under normal circumstances except...
Hospital, which I have never seen so I assume it's for saving the QPet's life at the last second. It can at least receive a shot, but tea may possibly be an option.
Marriage, which becomes available on day 4. The matchmaker will choose a mate, either being Makiko or Kikitchi depending on the QPet's gender.
Next is the Connection icon to either play games or visit another QPet device. Medicine is for when it gets sick, which will never happen unless you take really bad care of it. Chest is to view the plants you've grown and what supplies you have left. Bath is for having your QPet stay clean by, you know, bathing once a day. Record is for viewing Friends (other devices) and Ancestors. The last is the call icon for when it needs something.
Whew, that was a lot to cover. We aren't done yet, though. One last thing:
Questions? Corrections? Leave a reply and I'll answer.
I remember owning a penguin virtual pet around 10 years ago, but I have no clue what it's called and have had zero success finding it online. It was white and the shape of an igloo, I believe about 4 inches long. It had a fairly large screen and a few buttons below the screen (I think there were 4 or 5?) I'd love to know if anyone owns one of these or knows what I'm referencing! I don't have a photo of it unfortunately.
