    Hello.

    I found an old GBA and noticing it's rough state decided to see if it still worked. after putting batteries in it started... but with the GBC boot screen. regardless of whats in the cartridge slot.

    anyone have a lead? I would love to get it working if I can.

    Thanks much.

    See those cut corners on the back-bottom of a GBA game?
    In GB/C games they're filled in, and one of them pushes a flag-shaped switch against the wall of the slot: that one's stuck
