Stuck at this logo.
One minute it was working, in the other, it's not booting.
Tried new SD card, tried changing up the files, tried cleaning the console even though it was clean.
Nothing seems to work.
Bought the cartridge from senkogames on ebay.

A full black bar means that the bootrom isn't pulling any logo data from the cartridge. Either it's not plugged in and you need to somehow make it connect better or something's very wrong with the chips all of a sudden.

I don't think it's the Gameboy's problem, but don't have any other cartridges to check. Cleaned the contacts with 96% alcohol, tho and it still doesn't budge.

What's interesting is that the cartridge was not removed prior to the problem.

Whether there is an accidental drop of the card?

From the picture you showed, it's the main chip that has the problem.

Recommend contacting your dealer for replacement.

Try a paper shim behind the cartridge, and see if that helps.
Regardless if it works or not, throw that overpriced junk in the trash and get a $25 EDGB v4 off AliExpress. You'll be glad you did. They even come with a "free 16GB gift!" (An SD card, with ROMS pre-loaded on it)

Welp, what harsh and disrespectful words! How so? 😮 Here it is reputed to be one of the best GB flashcarts...And then you recommend one that is much poorer, bare-bones and without QOL features. 🤨

It's an Everdrive clone, and works fantastic. Does everything an Everdrive does, and does it better than the ez jr.. Also has lower power consumption. So there's nothing 'poorer' about it. And I wasn't being disrespectful by saying the truth, holy shit people are soft these days.
doesn't support rtc though, right? good pokemon gen 2 support is important for many
