First of all, check the current output of the charger. If that value is equal or above the one on the original, then the battery is dead and you should get a new one.

Where can I get a new GBA SP battery? Does Nintendo still manufacture them?


A place where you will surely find one is ebay. Or Aliexpress. Sorry for the late reply.


Just a quick note, all batteries on eBay are probably not up to full capacity, so they won't last as long as a brand new one. Just pointing that out.

I would recommend getting a new battery as Ciprian R said above. If that doesn't work than it might be the actual connecter on the GameBoy. Take a quick peek inside it to see if there are any bent pins or any loose wires or such.
