    Hi! I have a problem with my GB Boy Colour
    I power up the console... red LED lights up, but I have a blank screen and no sound.

    I've been using it with 1.2V AA rechargeable batteries with some issues: the console resets when the batteries are low on charge. Especially if I use my Everdrive GB (which requires more power).

    This morning the display started flickering, and after a couple of seconds of gameplay the console started resetting itself. Then I tried again but the display didn't turn on.
    I switched to couple of 1.5V AA standard batteries (thinking that maybe the rechargeable batteries were the problem) but the console remain dead.

    Maybe I have a blown cap, but I don't see any damage or leak. Maybe someone with more knowledge could take a look.

    Any advice would be appreciated!
