Gameboy micro Care FAQ

Gameboy micros are by far one of the coolest Nintendo consoles around. Even though you can buy Nintendo DS's now, you can't beat a quick blast on a Gameboy micro button tapping game!

The consoles are quite easy to look after, but that doesn't mean you can't misplace them and stand on it by accident... , so this guide will let you know how to keep the awsome little consoles in top-condition.

- Don't chew it, and don't eat it.
Pot Noodles taste a lot better.

- Don't toss it about and go playing catch with it.
Someone invented a bouncyball.

- Don't put it in water.
Try a boat, instead.

- Keep them in a safe place, out of the way.
Don't leave it on the floor where it can get stamped on!

- Don't put it in extreme tempuratures.
Hot roasted wires arn't good!

- If you have children, or younger family, don't let them use it unsupervised.
They could go ripping off the faceplate thinking you can, snapping the clips, so keep an eye on them.

- If you carry it in a backpack/rucksack, put it in a diffrent compartment than everything else.
Other items can bump and scratch it.

- Don't use third party accessories.
It's possible that they can break your console. (Ex. An unofficial power lead could overpower it and break the battery)


Gameboy Micro.
Gameboy micros are, well... micro! They're pocket size, small, and convenient - but that makes them delicate!

Taking care of them.
It's simple and easy to take care of these little things. Just wipe the screen down every now and then with a dry cloth, if it's too dirty use a dampend cloth, and dry afterwards. Buttons don't usually go too bad, but sometimes dirt will clog them, and of corse the usual old toothpick trick works fine here. If the faceplate becomes scratched, then in the side of your Gameboy Micro, you will see two holes. Poke a pencil in them and the faceplate becomes removeable, then, replace with a new one. You can get them from eBay or other stores.

Game cartridge care.
Your game cartridges will eventually gather dust. It's obveous, right? But don't blow them out. Try something such as a fan, hair dryer (Not hot), or something else, but nothing too hot. If you cant, cover your mouth with a cloth or something like that, then blow through that. This stops any spit from damaging and entering the cartridge.

Replacing a battery.
Sometimes the battery won't hold charge. To fix this, it must be replaced. use a small sized X screwdriver to remove the screw on the battery compartment. After that, pull the cover off, to reveal a white battery that is plugged in with a small wire. Gently pull this wire to pull a plug out of a socket inside the micro. Then, get your new battery. This is fiddley, but it has to be done; get the plug and possision it the correct way. Push it slightly into the socket. If you can push it right in, go ahead, if not, use the screw driver and push the plug right into the socket. Then, screw it back on. Don't screw it too tight though, you can see how tight it is by the on-off switch, and the rectangle pushed around it. Make sure the rectangle is lined up, if it is, that's tight enough.

Faceplates.
Faceplates will probably get slight scratches on, but they are VERY easily replaced. On the side of the micro console will be two holes. In the holes, push a pencil, toothpick, or anything that fits into the hole into it (or use a faceplate tool). This unclips the faceplate, making it removable. Then, pull off the faceplate, gently. Put that one to a side, and simply click in a new one. Easy.

That's the end of the FAQ Guide thingymajiggy. If you have questions, then post them and I will add them to here
Thanks to SuperGamecube64 for the idea of making this.

also, you might want to add that cartridges can be cleaned with q-tips and alcohol.
