    I started playing this morning, turned it off and came back to it and it got stuck in the loading screen so I turned it off again and when I turned the GBA back on it wouldn't go past the logo screen.

    I've since reformatted the SD Card, tried another console, cleaned the pins and tried to do a Kernel update with no responses.

    What are my options here and what could the fault be?

    Which logo screen you were halted? The GBA logo or the EZ-FLASH logo? if the GBA one, can you see the Nintendo logo?

    If no Nintendo, it means the console does not detect the card.
    Consider plug in and out multiple times, or use anhydrous alcohol to clean metal contacts.

    Yeah same here, just the GAME BOY logo with no 'Nintendo' logo...tried my actual games and they're sweet so don't know how to get it. I have cleaned the pins but will keep trying.

    Disassemble the case and refit the PCB board.

    Reassemble the case and tighten the screw. knock the game card on the table lightly a few times. A few vibrations can also move the PCB to the right place.

    If that still doesn't help, contact the dealer where you purchased the item for a replacement.
