My GBA SP (101) has a weird problem where it only charges in certain places, and never in the same places. If touched, it stops charging. Any ideas?

Most likely it is bad contacts either because of corrosion (water damage) or the solder pads are cracking.

@Balta666 Hmm, any idea how to fix that? Haven't dropped it in a puddle or anything, but I did get it used.

You can open it and have a look (GBA SP is not complicated) however if there are issues with the pads you'll need a soldering iron and some knowledge in soldering...
