After buying a new battery it seems to work. But playing it is extremely difficult for me! The screen is so small I can barely see a thing! I also don't have a screwdriver small enough for the screws so getting them out to replace the battery was very difficult. Now I can't get the batteries screwed back in all the way and I lost one. :( Still a cool Zelda piece to own though. But the Game and Watch is much better.
