Game Boy game not working

I have a black Game Boy game and tried putting it in my Game boy Color. The Game boy logo came on, but the screen just stayed white. Please help.

Re: Game Boy game not working

Make sure it is the only game with a problem.

Try a qtip and rubbing alcohol on the connectors.

Or take the plastic case off and rub a pencil eraser on the connectors then put the case back on.

I think some GB games wont work if their battery is dead. There is a little watch battery inside the cart. Take the plastic off and replace the battery.

Re: Game Boy game not working

I tried cleaning it, but that didn't work, so maybe the battery is dead. I got it with a VERY heavily used game boy color, so it would make sense. BTW, it was Rugrats: Time Travelers. Any good??

Re: Game Boy game not working

No, unless you're like 5. But seriously I looked it up briefly and it got some pretty terrible reviews. Looks like you dodged a bullet. Toss that piece of crap in the trash is my suggestion.

You won't become the guy by playing that. Play some I Wanna Be the Guy and report back.

Re: Game Boy game not working

... There's a way simpler way. If the game feels hot, blow into the bottom. Thios also works for the Wii Remote and Nunchuck
