It's possible that the connector in the nes has come loose and needs to be resoldered. However it's more likely the new has just given up it's life. Might be time for another one.

It might be a faulty AC Adapter Cable that stops working when you move the cable or it might be a damaged AC Adapter Port on your console(small plastic part broken off) that will power it off when you move the console.

Why does nintendo super nes cycle power during play?

Hmmm I think that the acapapter is causing this problem then because the black cord on the ac adapter that hook into the console the wire is fraying or broken then and going bad on you so try using a new ac adapter too see if it makes difference or not.

Does the original Nintendo NES-001 require a certain AC adapter. Cause I doesn't have the original ac adapter with same spec. My console power light is blinking on an doff. can that be the issuept

As long as it's 9 volt and about 500mA it should be ok. Just seen an original that says 9 volt and 400mA.

The current (mA) can be higher than the original but not the voltage that has to be 9.

1000mA = 1 Amp. So anything over 400mA is fine, but not less.

Can the ac adapter for the original NES console cause the console to flicker after 4 minutes then and why?

  • Well yes or the outlit thats its plugged into might not be working right and its not getting enough power to work right then.
    • Well it depends if the ac adapters metal parts on it are really loose or crooked then then yes or if there is something wrong with the inside of the adapter than yes

    I have got an original 1985 nintendo and just need the Ac adaptor for it to work again. i bought one on ebay and it was the wrong one it didnt fit. do you know what one to buy and where from?

    Search for the power supply model number NES-002. You can find several stores online that sell reproductions as well as several that sell used. A search of " nes-002 ac adapter" on Amazon returned several options.

    The light wont cut on when i plug in my nintendo. I have tried different outlets so that is not the problem but i am not sure if either it's just the plug or the system itself

    Well it might be the ac adapter thats causing the problem because mine works with a new ac adapter and i move the adapter around at a certain angle and wait for it to warm up a little bit and it works it might have the same issue like my super NES has then.So try a new ac adapter to see if it works if not then its the console its self.
