    Maybe you should change the internal battery?

    Look up any tutorial on Game Boy save battery replacement, the basic process (and variants, like using batteries with tabs, or welding/taping the old ones to a non-tabbed one, etc) is the same although the battery shape and tools will vary

    you need to solder a new one...
    if you dont have experience or know how, i will really suggest to find a shop that does it for a small price.. or some neighboor or relative who is good at repairing electronics

    well the battery has some tabs soldered, and theese tabs are soldered to the card pcb (the green board)
    you need to remove the battery with an iron, and put a new one
    don't solder the tabs to a new coin battery buy a battery with the tabs already on it,
    i say to don't solder yourself the tabs unless you got the right stuff because heating the battery will reduce its life, or even make it explode...
    i once had one which didn't last one month because of this shit..

    the process is simple if you already know how to solder stuff and have the materials and tools
    but a not experienced person or you know since this is gbatemp "young people;kids" shouldn't attempt to do this because they can get easily burned by the iron or burn the house down ;O; or will at very least they will put solder everywhere and permanently damage the card...

    just ask around your town in shops.. for stores who do repairs to electronics
    or even a watch\Jewellery shop where they make their own stuff and repairs... they usually have the stuff for this or know someone who does it
