This one is a tricky one.

Years ago, back in 2010, I was playing an old Tetris cartridge for the original GB my friend found in her house. Everything was normal, until the game froze. By the time I took this picture of the screen: Photo0283

(sorry about the poor quality, back on that time the phone’s cameras wasn’t good)

After I turned the device off and on, the screen was showing the Game Boy logo and the Nintendo logo all cracked up. Whats-App-Image-2020-01-08-at-02-30-33-1

When I try a regular GBA cartridge, I only get the Game Boy logo. Whats-App-Image-2020-01-08-at-02-30-33

10 years later I found my old GBASP, and now I’m trying to fix it.

Can someone help me with this problem?

Thanks.

Those metal cartridge connectors strips on the inside of the GBA slot are probly dirty. Get a q-tip, put some rubbing alcohol on it, and rub those metal strips up and down. Be careful not to get the q-tip's cotton stuck on anything.

@Brompton you get dust in the cartrigde port and in the cartrigde slot, get a hairdryer set it to cold but not to cold an blow the dust out. that could be your problem
