    Alright so my mother finally found the gameboy Brick she grounded me from me 7-ish years ago, it's working perfectly except for one thing, the batteries dont work, ive tried with a few batteries, so I know it's not the batteries themselves. I can use the side plug for the wall, but I want it to be portable, and take it to school [​IMG] Is this a remotely common issue I can fix myself?

    Sounds like there is something wrong with the conductors/connectors/whatevers for the batteries. I'm not quite sure how to go about fixing it myself.

    Wow, you actually just saved my gameboy [​IMG] I looked at the conductors, and I noticed a small amount of corrosive acid, so i just spun my batteries in place a bunch of times and they cleared up enough to turn on, AWESOME!!!
