Sometimes your Game Boy Advance may not be working properly, and sometimes it's as simple as cleaning your power switch! For this quick start guide, we will go over each step, the equipment, and a more advanced method for cleaning your switch. As always, we will follow it up at the end of the guide with a video for additional help!
Here is some of the equipment that you'll need to get you started:
*Make sure you place your razor knife on the right side, under the switch cover.
*Use a downward twisting motion while heating the soldering pad; This will help keep the plastic down while pulling the switch cover off.
*With the right side raised, grab with your tweezers and remove the switch cover while heating the other soldering pad.
*Make sure you cut your swab at a forty-five degree angle.
*For some, this is enough to get the console working. If you think this is enough for your console, then great! If not, we have a few more steps we can take to fully ensure our power switch is squeaky clean.
If you need further help or just need more of a visual guide for your installation process, you can follow along with our Power Switch Cleaning Tutorial video below! If you still need additional support, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
