My beloved Game Boy had developed a bit of a "twitch". It would reset itself at completely random moments, leaving me staring in horror at the start up screen of Pokemon Blue. I had cleaned the contacts of the Game Boy and the game cartridge several times but that wasn't helping. It was clear that the pins weren't tight enough.
I followed this guide, using a thumb tack as my tool to bend the pins down. It worked well. I experienced a momentary panic when the first pin popped out of place, thinking I had pressed too hard and damaged it but a quick look told me I was fine.
I put it back together and have played for an hour or so. The Game Boy is working wonderfully again. The pins are very tight, as the guide said they would be. Getting the game in or out requires a lot more force than it used to but not so much that it requires a bodybuilder to accomplish.
