I have a Nintendo mini classics fire today and I have no idea how to turn it off! I've tried waiting 10 minutes but no change. If you guys can help that would be awesome.

As best as I can tell, they cannot be turned off. There is a section about battery life in the Nintendo Wikia page about the fire that says:

With the clock, the battery lasts an estimated 6 months with LR43 batteries and 12 months with SR43 batteries. If the user plays the game only one hour a day, the system would last for six months on LR43 (battery life with SR43 is unknown). The user should notice when the battery's life has been depleted when the screen's display is hard to distinguish.

So it seems you just have to let it run out and replace the battery.


Out of my own personal experience with a few Nintendo Watch/Game devices, there is no way to turn them off. I tried pressing different buttons, but nothing worked. It is fine though,(You wouldn't turn off a watch, would you?) They do last for a long time. The one I had lasted for more than 6 months, (although I did not use it much).


One thing you could do is take the batteries out. This will shut the device off.

    Hello! Welcome to Arqade. As much as your answer does give an answer that would work, you should probably watch your tone. the line and a half of dots were not necessary. Something like 'Taking the batteries out would turn off the console, and prevent battery loss' would have been perfectly correct.
