Connection screen issues + Resetting problems

Recommended Posts

Hi! I purchased a new in package entama from Japanyouwant and it came in the mail today! unfortunately after a few hours the screen is looking really funny and the device randomly reset while i was viewing a menu. I’ve seen a screen like this on my v.5 tamagotchi, and the resetting eventually got so bad that I got frustrated and threw the whole device away. this time I figured i’d ask and see if this is something I can fix. Can anyone help me? here is a picture of the screen now vs when i first pulled the tama out of the box. https://imgur.com/gallery/GEYdmt5

Correct me if I’m wrong but was the picture on the left exactly how you saw it when you removed the tab on the side?

Not sure about the resetting, because I never heard of a connection/plus version that would reset but I will suggest that you change the battery and see what happens.

the picture on the left is after having played it for a few hours. i’ll try replacing the battery but i think it’s a problem with the screen itself!

A few of my older connections have screens like that. I think it just might be the aging process for the screens. It seems like the screen works it's just darker than usual from the picture unless theres something else wrong with it not showing up

Try bending battery contacts to see if that fixes it since the screen looks like it's in very good condition. The software in the v4/v4.5 have been known to be quite glitchy, I'm not sure if that extends to the entama line as well.

you guys! i am so confused. i took the battery out yesterday and put the tama on my dresser so i could look for a solution. the screen looked the same, all rainbow-y and distorted. this morning it looks like this! https://imgur.com/gallery/Lf8lOll what is happening??

a user on reddit thought it could be moisture and suggested that i put it in rice, so i’m gonna let it sit for the rest of the day and try again tomorrow. hoping i can figure this out!

The link you posted isn't working for me... moisture might be a possible problem or some sort of corrosion. I would try opening up the tamagotchi and looking at the circuit board maybe. You could also try rubbing alcohol on a q tip and swabbing everything down. I think if there was moisture, it'd be very internalized so you might solve it quicker if you open up the device. Idk, I've never dealt with this before but just some thoughts! Good luck!

I can't see any rainbow distortion in the picture you posted, but it might just be condensation due to the temperature. If you left it for a bit, it would most likely just go back to normal, or you could open up the tama and give the screen a wipe if you really wanted to.

that’s what’s confusing me. it looks normal again haha! i put it in rice for the time being. i’m just worried about permanent damage because my v5 broke over time, starting with a distorted rainbow looking screen. thanks for the suggestion!

I think the rainbowy screen is just a weird light illusion, because I've seen it on all my Tamagotchis but only when they're near a direct light source.

      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.

      So I got 2 tamagotchis, a gudetama one and a pacman one. At some point I noticed the pacman one was quieter than the gudetama one and I was wondering if it was already like that or it just changed and I have to fix it. Can someone compare the sounds for me on their own pacman and gudetama so I don't go crazy over this.

      Hi! I bought this this connection a few months ago, can’t remember if it’s v1 or v2 but have been looking on project tamashell and can not find it anywhere? Just wondering if it’s a fake

      Ever since I discovered the versions with colors I've been wanting one. I've tried to do some research from time to time but I'm still very confused.
      From what I've gathered, the on version is pretty limited in terms of stuff to do, but has a good breeding system. And the meet version is basically the same as on but in Japanese.
      Anyhow, now for the important part - which one should I get? I apologise if I come off as lazy but I'm going crazy trying to understand all these different versions with all the functions etc. So I was hoping that some kind soul over here maybe could help me out a bit.
      what I'm looking for: 
      having as much fun as possible without the need of additional tamas/apps etc
      (imagine going on a trip to the woods without internet and bringing your tamagotchi. You'd want you'd get as much as possible out of it with the somewhat limited opportunities in the woods)
      basically: as much games, customizations, locations to explore without having to connect my tama to another tama or the internet/an app. (Just in case I end up somewhere without internet connection, but don't get me wrong - I'd love for there to be an opportunity to go online as well, like back in the days when tamatown existed and you could "meet" other users, play games etc.)
      I'm leaning towards getting a tamagotchi p's version. from what I've understood, they aren't as limited as tamagotchi on in terms of games and places to explore.
      Since the prices are pretty hefty (I live in sweden where they haven't released any of it so I'll have to buy from overseas), I really want to make sure I'm educated enough before I buy anything. If you'd advice me to keep researching feel free to give me suggestions on where to look (websites, youtube channels etc). Otherwise, I'd be grateful for all tips and advices! I feel very lost at the moment. My latest tamagotchi was v3 and at one point I had the music star version too.

      I have an unreliable sleep schedule and want to alter the time on my Tamagotchi so it's awake when I am, but I'm worried it'll have consequences like something like Animal Crossing would. Will changing the time frequently affect my Tama?

      My Tamagotchi ON was working fine yesterday and today when I went to turn it on it wouldn't even start up. I replaced the batteries and the screen just stays white with what I assume is some internal damage, although i don't know how this is possible as I haven't taken my Tama anywhere that could've resulted in this.
      Anyone know how to fix this? I really don't want to those my family tree and I don't really have the money for a new Tamagotchi ON.
