    Default Loose battery in GB Color cart?

    Has this happenend to anyone else? I have a Game Boy Color game that the battery unconnected itself and bangs around inside!

    Guess I'll have to order the tool to open it up!

    The screw is so close to the surface that you can get it our without the special tool pretty easily. One method I've had luck with is slightly meting a small piece of plastic(like from a pen) and pressing it to the screw. When it hardens you can unscrew it and should still be able to screw it back in later.

    Also, don't try to force the cover off. The face should slide up(or is it down???I forget) and then lift right off.
