Game Boy micro - Game Won't Start - Troubleshooting

Important note: The Game Boy micro can only play Game Boy Advance Game Paks. It is not compatible with games made for the Game Boy Color or original Game Boy.

If you can not get your game to start, or you can not get past the boot-up screen that reads "Game Boy," the most common reason this occurs is that the Game Pak is not fully inserted. Turn off the Game Boy micro, firmly insert the Game Pak until it clicks, and then turn the system back on. For step-by-step instructions, with diagrams, click here.
