    Hey all not sure if any of you have any experience with fixing a gba sp but i thought i would ask.

    I replaced a case on an old ags 101 gba from ebay last year. Now recently started using it and even though it seems to charge ok, the power switches off sometimes if i move the screen. Also the light never turns green it's always red likes its continuously charging no matter how long i leave it.

    I would be grateful for any advice, thank you :)

    "the power switches off sometimes if i move the screen." sounds more like a short somewhere, possibly a power down if disconnected failure. Not good either way.

    Red all the time could just mean that the battery is not capable of holding a proper charge any more.
