    Since I put the clock forward in my Gamecube last weekend, there seems to be a problem with it. It works fine when the Cube is on, but the time freezes when the console is off. This is a real pain in the backside when it comes to Animal Crossing.

    Anyone else come across this?

    Cheers,

    Very strange that this has happened only after adjusting the clock :confused:. The internal battery may be low but it shouldn't be. The clock in my cube loses a little time every few weeks but we're only talking minutes.

    I can tell you the reset procedure but you need to be able to take the top casing off your Cube and so would need the proper screwbit?

    Sure as hell wouldn't have the right screwbit groundy. Any idea where on earth I might be able to find one. Would a call to Ninty central be able to help?

    Well, it looks like the battery may be completely FUBAR. Last night, it asked me for the language, and went through the whole "new cube" routine. I'll have to see what it's like this evening. Maybe the fact that it reset itself (somehow) might have solved this particular problem.

    It does sound odd but it might be OK now. I found the screwbits so if you need a lend of one, just let me know :).

    No. It seems that the battery really has died a death. If it's left off longer than a couple of hours, it completely resets. My TV's probably going to be taken away to be repaired this weekend, so I might take advantage of that opportunity to take the Cube back to Dixons, and see what can be done.

    On the other hand, groundy, if you think that this can be overcome in the comfort of one's own front room, I'd be delighted to borrow your screwdriver!!

    Did you get this sorted yet t-force?

    I found my Nintendo Screw-Bits so if you want to have a go yourself, then just let me know and I'll send them off to you :).
