    i suggest you bring it in somewhere to get fixed... either that or you mail it to nintendo... i would never trust anyone other than nintendo to fix my micro... but i'm not sure about how you feel about your gba... wait, don't gba's take regular double-a bats? or is yours the gba sp?

    lookout: Hell no. The old style GBA takes AA batteries (which, if rechargeable, are charged outside of the GBA), not a built-in rechargable slab-type. And a Micro would still be under warranty, so it's most likely a GBA-SP.

    bushwick2002: Probably sounds obvious, but have you tried your friend's charger cable on your GBA? If you're lucky it's just your adapter plug that's dead and needs replacing. If not then it sounds like a return to nintendo service job [​IMG]
