    I have bought 3 new powertags as I burnt my last one out. 2 are working fine. But one of them writes fine but when placed on switch to be scanned i just get a error beep. Anyone know why?

    The powertag easily gets fried if you write to it to much. It seems to happen even more if you use the serial number changer (either through the powersaves software or with the .py)
    hell, even legit amiibo have been fried do to this software.

    Hmm.. when you say powertag, is it a branded powertag, like this:

    Third party buying? Maybe not legit? I just did 30 minutes of writing to mine, add that to the two weeks prior... dunno.
