So I recently got the pacman tamagotchi, didnt realize it was a tamagotchi nano since its been a while since ive ever touched another tamagotchi ever since i was a kid, but i dont mind.


The only thing thats got me confused is the "death" of my tamagotchi much? the pacman tamagotchi death only explains, death, departure, and running away. When i checked my tamagotchi, it seemed as if it was completely normal, however i wasnt looking much at the screen tbh and just pressed the A button. But after i pressed the A button, it made me reset to the time screen to put in the time again to hatch a new egg? I dont know what happened?

Doesn't it reset when you press A and the C button? Is there more "deaths" to a tamagotchi that i didnt know of? I did leave it for a few hours, so im guessing my neglect killed it, but what im confused is that it doesnt match up to the deaths mentioned in the wiki.. cause it didnt have a gravestone as far as i saw, didnt have gusts of wind, and the one idling on the screen was my tamagotchi instead of pacman? what happened?

This has happened twice in a row, but the first time i only saw the time screen, so i mustve clicked a button somehow while i was walking around. 

I cant find anything on this since it seems the pacman tamagotchi is fairly new..

If anything happens to my third tamagotchi and i find more new information, ill update this. i just want to know what happened to my tamagotchi..

That does sound strange - I've never had a tamagotchi reset with a click of a single button. And you're right, it should be A and C that brings a new egg after death/departure/running away. 
I hope you solve this mystery soon!

Yeah, this definitely doesn't sound normal! I'm quite fond of this version (though it's recent it's quickly become one of my all-time favourites), and it's definitely not supposed to do that.

Your description sounds like there's something faulty or loose that's causing unwanted resets - it might be worth taking it up with the retailer that you purchased it from.

Oh ok! Yeah, that sounds like that might be the case.. I'll talk to them about it, thank you ^^!!

So just an update on this, after it reset yet another time, I decided to open it up to check the batteries to see if anythings loose. The batteries seems dependent on how tightened the back panel is since it can't stay in place without it, and when it does get loose, it resets. So i tightened up the back panel and i'm gonna hope for the best for this tamagotchi.

Good call! That tends to be the case with tamas that use LR44 batteries. Unlike the CR2032 there is no little tab to snap the battery in place. For my Osu/Mesu pair it's definitely important to have the back panel tightened up so I imagine it would apply to yours as well!

Thank you ^^!! So far going good, but I just wanna see if it can live its full life before saying anything more haha

My Pac-Man ✖️ Tamagotchi had an issue that might be related to this. More than a week before the (factory) battery actually ran out, the low battery screen started sporadically appearing for a few seconds before disappearing again. Later these seconds turned to minutes and it started appearing so frequently it became impossible to chase the ghosts away because the low battery screen kept interrupting (the game only registers you did it after the entire animation is finished).

Has this happened to anyone else? I got expensive new SR44 batteries but haven't used them yet. Will this not happen again if I make sure the back cover is properly tightened up?

At least don't make the low battery screen so soulless if you're gonna show it to me that often! What did Kandentchi do to deserve this?!

Yeah.. sometimes the vintage/Nano low battery screens make me cringe.

I'd definitely prefer Kandentchi, then that wouldn't be as soulless as that. 

It would actually be quite cute!

The part with the ghosts becoming impossible to chase away happened to me when I ran down the included batteries in mine.

I haven't yet exhausted a set of fresh good-brand batteries in it, but I'm going to hazard a guess that what happened here is down to the way the voltage of cheaper batteries (which are often used as factory-installed "demo" batteries in products like this) drops off, as opposed to it being an actual issue with the hardware.

My tamagotchi has actually left, without being reset, and it has lasted WAYY longer than the times when it reset, so Im gonna say that tightening the back panel was a success!!

Wuh oh, this seems like an entirely different problem than what im experiencing.. I have not had a low battery screen that made it impossible to chase away the ghosts.. but it cant hurt to try to tighten up the back panel of your tamagotchi like i did if it seems like the battery didnt last more a month? im still going on the same factory battery for my current tamagotchi nano and havent gotten a problem like that

Glad to hear it! :D

This sounds like the same resetting problem that @DraconicDetective described in another thread recently, so I'm glad that there's now a known solution here in this thread. :)

      Hey
      I was wondering if anyone knows where I could buy a DVD copy of Tamagotchi: The Movie online in Canada. The only place I can find it is on the Australian version of eBay.
      Thanks

      Back in the 1990s, I collected LCD game-watches and character-themed digital watches, and I always dreamed of buying a watch-format Tamagotchi to go with them. Though other competing brands offered watch virtual pets, Bandai did not - they only licensed out the Tamagotchi livery for use on themed versions of standard analogue and digital watches. So, 23 years later, I've decided to make my own;

      Presenting the "Tamawatchi"!
      Though the name "Tamawatchi" was officially used for a line of Tamagotchi-themed non-virtual pet watches in, I believe, the Connection era, back in 1997 I always imagined it as the name that they would use for a watch version of the iconic virtual pet.
      Since this was based on an imagined product from my childhood, I specifically wanted a very 1990s look for this project, so that it would fit in with the watches that I have from that era. So, I purchased the newly-released bright-green Neon Tamagotchi Original Gen 1 and a dark-green fabric watch-strap on Amazon UK, since the two combined gave me exactly the look that I wanted.

      As with my "Tamagotchi Pinny" custom project, I attached brooch-bars to the back of the device using Gorilla Super Glue. Since I've got past experience now, the back of this one looks a lot tidier - not that it matters too much, since it won't be seen when it's in use. I used three brooch-bars so as to evenly distribute the weight of the device when it's attached to its strap (two are on the battery-door, and one is at the top of the device itself), although unlike the Tamagotchi Pinny, the Tamawatchi is a bit too heavy to wear as a pin. Also, unfortunately, for this project, I had to remove the iconic ball-chain, because on a watch it would just get in the way!
      There are better ways of making a Tamagotchi into a watch, but since I handle my things carefully, this quick-and-easy method will hold up just fine for my use-case.

      Here's the Tamawatchi with a 1990s Tamagotchi Fantasy Dome bubble-watch. The Tamawatchi doesn't look especially out-of-place, which I'm happy about.
      If Bandai ever makes an official watch-format Tamagotchi, I'll be right there pre-ordering one at the earliest opportunity, but for now, at least I finally have some semblance of the "Tamawatchi" that I always wanted to own.

      I couldn't find a solution to this problem so i hope to find it here.
      When i had 4 gen i wanted to view family history but i couldn't i thought that i maybe need higher generation to view it.
      But now im on 7 gen and it's still unavailable...
      I remember that when I played this tamagotchi last year i had another family and i could view family history on 4 gen.
      Help me please!!

      I really love the way my Tama evolved! It inspired me to draw a piece with them and their dog(?), Frost.

      Initially, nothing existed, nothing but microscopic atoms the size rivaling that of ants and pieces of rice, but in a matter of moments, our Lord brought everything we know into existence. Delving into the universe, the various galaxies, our galaxy, the Milky Way, is a beautiful blue and green planet that we call home; Earth.
      Earth is a beautiful, luscious planet, unlike any of its eight fellow planets. It has thirst-quenching water, gorgeous scenery, and most importantly, the presence of life. Life began with a bunch of animals, a man named Adam, and a woman named Eve, and as the centuries and millenniums kept going, regardless of their differing events, all moments of history have one thing in common; life slowly but surely grew swifter, stronger, and most prominently, smarter, and and all associated capabilities of speed, strength, and knowledge lie within a special element of our bodies called the brain.
      The brain is a sacred treasure guarded by the thick layers of our skulls. It processes every sight our eyes visualize, every scent our noses get lured to, everything our hands feel, every sound our ears hear, and every bite of food our mouths and taste buds consume, and above all this can provide the answers to some of life's biggest questions. Where do babies come from? What's the highest SAT/ACT score? Will we get a spouse or be single until death? Will we succeed in getting our dream job?
      But later today, at any time, Bandai America is going to answer life's most frequently-asked question, a question that was passed from vocal cord to vocal cord generation after generation, a question that not even the lord himself knows the answer to, a question that humanity has been plaguing since the beginning of time as we know it.

      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.
