    Default Odd error on GBA game

    A friend of mine just picked up a used copy of Leaf Green(Pokemon) to play on his DS lite. The game however gave him some really strange errors and I was wondering if anyone had a clue as to what they might mean.

    This error comes up when the game is started:
    "1M sub-circuit board is not installed"

    You can go past this error and start the game, but when you go to save this error appears:
    "Save error, Please exchange the backup memory."

    I was also wondering how do GBA games save, do they have a backup battery?
    They call me Ha-do-ken, cause I'm down, right, fierce.

    Sounds like he either got a bootleg or if it is legit, then the flash chip used for saving is shot. That chip could be replaced.

    Maybe it might be the NDS light itself?

    Stuff like this happens more often than you think... I picked up a copy of Drill Dozer for the GBA that didn't rumble. Nintendo apologized and sent me a replacement copy. If you still have the receipt, you should be able to either get a replacement at the store, or get one through Nintendo's warranty.
