GB X5 won't boot games


I'm using a gba with a ips screen. Whenever I launch a game it says loading and then the screen goes black. However, I can still hear the game in the background.

Anything I can do to make this work?

James Cree:
The problem is power consumption and corresponding voltage drop.
The everdrive draws more power than a normal cart.
The IPS screens draw more power than normal screens.
Put the 2 together and you can run into difficulties.

Some people have had success using 1.6v Ni-Zn batteries to offset the voltage drop.
I would suggest trying that.

Maybe you can try to reduce the backlight of your IPS screen.
