Question about Nintendo NES Console

NES console - white or green tv screen

Hi there. A while back I bought a NES console from a fella close by. Works great. He also gave me another system for free as the outside case is a bit grotty and he didnt think he could sell it, but it needed a new 72 pin connector in it which I bought and was installed in Feb 2008. He also disabled the Region lock for me so I could play games from the US, so I tend to use this one to play all the games from the US and AUS so I am not changing consoles. Now when my son puts a game in, the tv screen is grey or green and the game is not playing. I inserted the game in the original NES console that I bought from him and it plays fine (other than the fact that the region lock isnt disabled in that one and it blinks....yes I need to get it disabled in that one too LOL)....so I know its not the games. Where do I start??? Thanks in advance for your help :))))

First off flip your nes upside down and remove the screws to the cover of nes..... then flip your nintendo over and remove the cover.... remember you just voided your warranty for your nes..... then proceed to do the following:

find Chip 3193A and find the 4th pin on the left hand side near the blue coils. Remove or pull back the pin and your NES Will play Pal and NTCS games.

The cartilage reader had broke on my Nintendo 64 console. What can I do about this problem then.


Well the same thing had happened with me not too long ago. You could buy a new N64 console then from Luke games and just games or DK oldies. Make sure you get the 4.5 mm game bit tool to open the console up and you can change the cartilage reader from the new one to the old one like I did. Or you could get your old N64 console fixed somewhere then or find someone to fix it. Just buy a new one like I did.

Pogo wont load games


This should get you started on trouble shooting the issue.

https://help.ea.com/article/help-my-game-wont-load

This is a link to POGO support, read all the information and follow the instructions. Most the time this will fix issues with POGO.

I have had cases that Internet Exporer would not work no matter what we tried. In those cases I have downloaded and used Firefox (link for downloading below).

Hope this helps
