    So I've had my G6 Lite for 11 months, and last night I booted it up and the Nintendo splash screen came up, but it was all faded, and then nothing. So I booted it up again and my NDS booted the game boy advance, thinking my G6 was just a game for the GBA. After a couple of boots, I got the normal splash screen and played my games for the night, but this morning, the faded screen of doom returned once, and now it only boots straight to the GBA.

    I suspect the battery has quit. The PC still shows all the contents of the card, so it's not corrupted. Anyone else with a similar problem?

    Yeah. I guess you're right about the internal battery losin' all its juice.

    It's time to move on and get a Slot-1 solution. [​IMG]

    the battery is for your saving purposes, not saving content of your card.

    i would backup and format it with FAT and MPutility and then put back backup to cart and see if it works or not.

    Yeah, I had a similar problem.
    You may find that leaving it to charge in the USB adapter for a few hours will bring it back to normal for a while...

    Someone did manage to replace the battery and solve their problems.
    The old thread is here:
    Replaced G6 battery

    It appears the battery is a Panasonic CL 1220, which he couldn't get hold of but used a CR 1220 instead!

    Good luck! [​IMG]
