I purchased a previously loved Angelgotchi. It was tested before i purchased it and everything worked just fine. I purchased new batteries for it and I’ve played with it since I received it a few days ago. Today, I was playing the game, when all of a sudden the whole thing reset on me. Now I have to start from the beginning. Is it because it’s an old tamagotchi? Is something wrong with the device? How can I prevent this from happening again? Should I buy a brand new one? Has this happened to anyone?

This has happened to me with vintage tamagotchis as well as the connection models. I've never figured out why though. It's most likely a misconnection with the batteries, they probably shifted and lost contact with the backing of the shell for a few seconds causing it to reset. Maybe the device just got bumped the wrong way?

I wouldn't buy a brand new one, but I also have no clue how to prevent this. I wouldn't advise making the screws too tight, but you could use some tape if the back doesn't seem secure enough. I don't think it's the specific device since it's happened to me with many of my devices and I have yet to figure out the true root of the problem. If anyone else has input, please share, since this is an ongoing problem for me as well and a solution or explanation would be much appreciated! :D

This sort of thing can very often be traced back to the battery-contacts having been flattened down by batteries having been left in the device for a long time - a result of the metal being thin and flexible. The solution is to take a very small flat-head screwdriver and very slowly and very very carefully bend the contacts upwards.

I've had to do this multiple times before, and it always fixes the problem. :)

      I saw one of these Angelgotch watches on Ebay recently.

      I searched and searched for informations but I couldn´t find any.
      Are there rare? Why isn´t there some informations?
      Does someone here have one?
      I´m so confused
      Thanks for your answers

      What are the rarest shell designs for the vintage tamas? And which ones are your favourites?

      Choose your favorite Angelgotchi character and vote in the poll! I didn't include Lucky-Unchi Kun and Deviltchi because they're not angels XD
      If you want, make a post saying why it's your favorite.

      I just found out today that my beloved Tamagotchi Ocean's A B and C buttons are barely, or COMPLETELY Non-Responsive. How do I fix this, if it's at all possible? this is the first Tamagotchi I have EVER owned that has gone wrong on me, and I really don't want this to be my first permanently DEAD Tamagotchi...
      I also found out, that my Japanese Tamagotchi Angel (Angelgotch) has stripped screws. I recieved it three weeks ago, WITH batteries already in it. I played with it for about a week and a half, and I decided to take the batteries out for storage. I can't get the screws off. one is SEVERELY stripped, and the other one is well on it's way. Is there ANYTHING I can do? Or is my brand new Angel doomed?

      (I wasn't exactly sure where to post this, but since I'm asking about a vintage tama, I thought I'd put it in here. Feel free to move if needed)
      I was wondering if anyone has restored the color to the wings on their Angel ~ mine are extremely worn and I'd like to repaint them. Before I go out and buy paint (was thinking gold model paint for like a model car) I thought I'd see if anyone here had suggestions for a brand or warnings about any sort of paint not to use.

      I just bought my angel gotchi off ebay and it came about two weeks later.
      I noticed though that the icons aren't like what I've seen.
      The language is in japanese and the words say "Angel Gotchi" not Tamagotchi Angel
      there is no butt with wings or heartshaped meter icon, or fork for the food...
      is this a fake?
