Game Boy game boots up and goes black

I recently bought a Game Boy game on EBay. I put it in my Game Boy and turn it on. It turns on like normal, then goes black. Anyone know anything about how to fix it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Try cleaning the contacts with windex and drying with a cotton swab or paper towel. The game may be damaged internally.
