Yup, the chibi is the mini! (´∩｡• ᵕ •｡∩`)Yes Thats exactly what I did lol! I thought Nano was just Japanese minis. But your right the nano have games so def not the same thing. (Is the chibi the mini?)
Looks like I'll have to stalk ebay for a bit and see if I find something.
From what I've been able to tell, most sellers who are selling virtual pets in sealed packages don't care if it works or not. They're selling it as-is: an unopened, untested toy. Some listings specify no refunds for this reason, and some don't specify that, but I figured it generally applies when purchasing sealed items. (Is that contrary to your experience?) I've never had one not work, so I haven't had to deal with that. I have bought one from a seller that said in the description they would refund or replace it if it didn't work upon opening, but I think that's kind of unusual. Normally, like this time, I don't think I'd really have any basis for a refund when the description didn't claim it works (since it was unopened/untested by seller).@KrisKris ahhhh that's awesome!!!! I've had to resist starting mine up as well.
That said, I would deffo test it, make sure the screen, sound, and buttons work. A lot of sites only give you a few days to a week after receiving an item to open a claim or request for a refund if it's not as described. That said, you honestly don't need to go further than the clock screen, everything is able to be verified in there, and I definitely do that with pets I'm buying to run later or buying as gifts.
No worries -- I'm the one who decided to go ahead and do it! And yeah, I make sure to pay attention to stuff like refund windows!That said, I'm really sorry I pushed the reccomendation to test the device.
Were those returned ones unopened/new-in-package when you got them? If so, that's good to know, because that indicates that more sellers may return non-working ones bought NIB than I thought. But I'm a little surprised if you guys haven't seen the types of listings I'm talking about where sellers state it's an unopened item and therefore untested and being sold in unknown working condition! I had thought I'd remembered eBay's rules sounding like they only force returns if the item doesn't match the description, so if an item (especially for older items) doesn't state it is in working condition, I felt unsure a refund could be forced. I've never had to request a refund as I've not yet gotten a non-working one.You can definitely return ebay stuff if it doesn’t work or was not as described. The only time ebay gives the seller a choice to not accept returns is if the buyer just changed their mind and no longer wants the item. I have made a couple returns on ebay for defective vpets. Usually it is easy, but if the seller doesn’t respond ebay will step in and resolve it.
I went ahead and did! See the end of my previous post It is all set to go for the hatch!Your mini is not old. It probably works but would be best to test it
Sorry for taking a while to respond! The issue with my tama is a busted wire, which I can solve by soldering, but I haven't unpacked it after moving yet.Oooh, I wonder what exactly got busted, I might know how to fix it; feel free to share pics!
I wanted one of the flocked ones sooooo bad but never found one locally. Then I learned how nasty they had a tendency to get and PHEW, I dodged that hassle. How's it look post-flocking removal?
@Maskutchi ooooh I'd LOVE a glow version! Now I'm tempted to send mine off to be sacrificed to one of the resin gods. And LOL, got your namesake!
Ohhh ok! Yeah, I have a few tamas with busted wires. No sound as a result.Sorry for taking a while to respond! The issue with my tama is a busted wire, which I can solve by soldering, but I haven't unpacked it after moving yet.
I'll try to post a pic of it post flocking removal. I was able to to it by rubbing alcohol on it, letting it sit, and then scraping off the fur. I found mine on amazon for only like 8 bucks. It's the red version with the white buttons.
Cool! Didn't know re-flocking was possible, but now it's an option if I change my mind (again)Ohhh ok! Yeah, I have a few tamas with busted wires. No sound as a result.
I'm in the process of custom painting a few of my digivices! Just oodles of sanding, spray paint and a car-type top-coat. I'm scared to do the top coat tho- once I use this can it'll be no good after two days or so, so I'm trying to find what else I can use it on. If it works well, I'll be sure to recommend it! That way it has new life!
Alternatively, you can re-flock it! There's guides on YT and it actually doesn't look difficult.
