Gameboy Color Shuts off when booting .gbc game
« on: December 10, 2019, 07:26 AM »
When using the X7 on my gameboy color, it sometimes shuts off while booting a .gbc rom, and I have to try it a few times. The power light flashes while booting.

The cart uses more power when reading/writing the sd card.

A Faulty power switch can cause this.

Try a fresh set of alkaline batteries.

Some sd cards may draw lot of power during reading and especially during writing. Switching to another sd card may solve the problem, also make sure than no problems with batteries
