this game has gave me trouble in the past but now it won't boot at all whatsoever. now all I get is the Game Boy Color logo and just "®".

I have tested every of your game on your own and it always results with always booting or requiring a bit of coaching to get it booting

It may be that 1 of the pins on that connects to the cartridge is bent or something, look inside with a flashlight and see if anything looks amiss

I opened it up and it looks completely fine. Also it's only one game that doesn't work out of about 10 that I have

par

I open the game but not the game because I can't open the game cuz I don't have the right stuff

par

I meant Gameboy

par

It may just be that that game has broken... But do the same thing, look at the pis on the game and see if anything is amiss (you don't have to open it) and if everything looks fine the the only way to find out is to open the game up

The suggestions by everyone is about as good as you'll get. You'll want to check the pins and give the contacts on the game a good cleaning with rubbing alcohol. If that doesn't fix the situation then one of the chips on the game PCB has probably died. The only way to check a chip (that I'm aware of) is removing it from the PCB and putting it into a tester. Other than that, you would want to inspect the traces on the PCB of the game. run a multimeter from contacts to points on the chip and such. It's a bit of work if you really want find the problem that bad.

I agree with Andrew here

Can you give a better description on how to use the multimeter

par

To check traces, you can set your multimeter to continuity mode and touch contacts to either end. A beep or '0' on the screen will tell you there is no disruption on that trace. Checking chips is a rigorous process and extremely difficult without the correct tools.

One of the only other options you could try is reflowing the solder on the PCB using either a hairdryer (for a long time on high) or a heat gun (for short bursts) to heat up the solder and see about reconnecting any problematic spots.

Probably, in this case, a chip has failed, which would require programming to completely repair and at this point its best just to find a new game.

What if you CAN'T find a new game? How would you go about reprogramming it?

Hi Joe, I don't know how possible it would be to reprogram a GBC game chip. I know of some YouTubers that do it with NES games but as for "newer" games, I don't think it's possible. If you're still interested, look around YouTube or Google searches to see if you can reprogram a cart and go from there. Best of luck to you on that.

I don't understand why people are opening up their cartridges and cleaning up the traces, I'm sure that solves the issue, but just blow into the %#*@ cartridge's 😳. It's just like the NES, blow into the game cartridge, try again. Problem solved....

@thecalamity

If you blow into it, introduces moisture which will rust eventually and screw up the cart, isopropyl alcohol completely evaporates. That's why half the old SNES carts don't work, blowing in em

@sarahvail

We were having the same problem with it being stuck on the logo screen. We have always blown in the games which made them work, but I was hesitant to do it this time. We did it anyway because the alcohol didn't work. Sure enough everything's working fine again! It's okay to blow in them.
