oK ive got some good news! after months of battle and late police reports and it appears all hope was lost. i called paypal to prove i filed a police report via scan sent via their complaint email. i needed to verify that they got the notice that police report was filed but that it wouldn't be available for 60 days due to being backed up.



i called and a supervisor named Scott took my call. i explained why i was calling and also reiterated my situation to him. so he read my complaint on paypal and told me to hold. about 5 minutes later he returned and told me he returned my lost 487 dollars. it was nothing short of a freaking miracle in my eyes. months of fighting and i finally connect to someone that took care of the issue in 5 minutes! 5 minutes! let that sink in. my faith has been restored for paypal that there are some people that arnt reading a script and actually give a crap about ones situation!



he then went on to explain that i should have won the case to begin with and it was indeed wronged in this situation. unfortunately the scammer still got the money, it was paypal that refunded me. i told the guy i could kiss his hand for actually caring about my issue 😛 So Scott, you are the man!!! More people like him need to exist.



So now that that's finished i don't need to stress about it anymore but let this be warning to all. scammers are out there, so you better do as much as you can to protect yourself! ive been recording the things i pack via camera and no longer do over roughly 100 dollar transaction on paypal.

My Virtual boy is acting up. I do not see any 3D depth. I noticed if I close one eye I do not see an image. If I close the other eye I see an image.I am unable to open it because the hole with the screw is to long for a screwdriver. I am not explaning the problem well probably. I would happily send it in for repair to someone. Nintendo is no longer excepting them for repair. Can I get the info on how to send this in for repair here.


i sorry i missed your question. christmas was very busy month for me so i some how missed it. this i why pming me is important cause i will see that :P

I ordered some and tried it Sunday waiting till Monday night to turn it on again. No luck.

Edit: To be more specific I sprayed the contact cleaner into the plug on the end of the controller cable as well as the socket on the headset.


when you sprayed it on here you put the plug in the hole in and out rapidly? that will clean the connection. if that doesnt work your power regular is likely dead on the motherboard. (little black board with red led)

i called paypal today found out he filed a police report which basically means he wins no matter what evidence i submitted. this is so incredibly corrupt its not funny.... im going to take this to social media and i'll also be filing a piloce report. maybe with a little pressure from the public i can get some justice.
