Hiya, a long time tama fan returns!! <3

Recommended Posts

Hey!

Tamagotchis have been with me through my childhood. Now I am an 18-year-old who occasionally transforms into a total tama-stan. XD

I've currently got booted up a connection v2! However, since I last used it, I think it may have bugged out slightly... I downloaded my old tama (petitchi, gen 12) to find that the age of my tama was 61??? Not sure how that happened. XD

My first ever tamagotchi was the connection v4.5 <3, I got it for my eighth birthday and I loved it soo much!!! However, it just so happens to be the only tama I have that no longer works!! 😢 It's really hard to replace that model.

Anyway! I thought now is a good time to return once again to my hobby, since I'm inside all the time, haha! 

 

My collection of tamagotchis:

Tamagotchi P2 (J)

Connection v2 (E)

Connection v5.5 (Celebrity Familitchi) (E)

Connection v6 (Music Star) (E)

Tamagotchi Friends (E)

Gudetama Tamagotchi (E)

...oh! and a Violetchi lanyard. :)

I'm also planning on purchasing some more japanese models! I've been hopping about on ebay, looking for good deals. 😛 As the v4.5 is so hard to come by from what I can tell, I am definitely considering investing in the Ura Jinsei Enjoi, which features my beloved Ura tamas!! 😮

I'm always open for discussions!! If you have any questions for me, or stories to tell, please don't hesitate to comment!! :D

Aw, thank you!! :D 

Quite a long time ago, my tamagotchis were in my garage for storage. When I got them out eventually, all were fine except my v4.5. :( I have always assumed it was due to moisture in the garage, so since then I've kept my tamas in a much safer place when I'm not using them. :rolleyes:

What would happen is it would function normally for a while, then suddenly the screen would become scrambled and glitchy. Often it would randomly reset too. I tried taking it apart to see if there was anything inside that might have caused it, but I couldn't do anything. I think it's completely broken now. :( 

I had a lot of fun times with that tama, though! I'll always remember that. :)

 Could it be a battery contact problem? Try bending the contacts or wedging a piece of cardboard behind the batteries to make them contact better.

Or try some of the tips from here. Even if it doesn't work out, I'm glad to hear of your fond memories with that tama. ^_^

Yeah, I am thinking of trying that, thanks for the link! Since joining the forum I've seen a lot of talk about this, so it's definitely worth a shot if there's any chance of repairing my tama. ❤️

That link was a LIFE SAVER!!!! Honestly, thank you so much!! I have gotten it working, at least for now. I'll monitor it and see if it's completely fixed!! :D

      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.

      Hi guys!
       
      When I was younger, I had the Tamagotchi Connection V5 in the Argos variant.
       
      Sadly, I lost it when I ran away from home several years ago. I'd really like to get another one, but I don't know where to start. I've checked eBay, but there were none for sale. I expect it'd be expensive too because it was a special version here in the UK!
       
      I'm going to keep checking eBay each day or so to see if one pops up, but do you guys have any other site recommendations? I have no idea where to start. Just want a piece of my childhood back :)Thank  you ❤️
       
      (P.S - I understand this site is not for selling, I'd just like to know the best sites to look on to buy!)
