Replacing the battery in a Pokémon Gold cartridge. Mine died because these batteries are only built to last a little while, and after it dies, it prevents you from saving your game. It’s easy if you know what you’re doing. If you guys need any help/advice on what you’ll need or where to get it or how to do it properly, please feel free to ask me! All you need is -
1. A CR2025 battery (most DIY stores will have them, I got mine for £3.95 from a place around the corner from where I live. Alternatively, Amazon sells them)
2. A screwdriver (it’s recommended to get the proper ‘gaming-screwdriver’ one to open the dodgy Nintendo-screws on the back of Gameboy colour carts, but I used tweezers to get the one on my cart off)
3. A precision head screwdriver (or something flat to prise off the soldered parts of the tabs from the dead battery WITHOUT breaking the tabs off the circuit board. I borrowed a screwdriver with a very thin head and it worked much better than anything else I tried)
4. Some tape to ensure that the new battery won’t be accidentally disconnected from the tabs. Unless you’re confident with a soldering iron, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND attempting to solder the tabs to the new battery. If the battery is punctured or it leaks, the whole circuit board will be ruined. (I used electrical tape, got it for £1.99 again from the DIY store. Amazon also sells it).
Hope this can help!
