Question about Nintendo NES Console

Freezing The NES I just got on Ebay will either not play the games at all, or freeze after ten minutes of play. I've already replaced the connector pins... Is there anything else that might cause this?

    Is it behaving the exact same way after the new connector installation as before?

Get some alcohol or deoxit or goo gone and try cleaning the leads on the games you're using. They're all over 20 years old and should all have heavy oxidation on those gold connections at the business end of your carts.

Well it sounds like those 2 game packs might have something wrong internally or the battery that saves your game data is either dying or is dead then. So you. Could buy new game packs to see if it works. Luke games

The red light flashes on my NES and on the TV screen, it keeps on changing colors. Do you know whats wrong?


The NES is touchy like that, sadly-- your problem isn't uncommon. My NES, and the NES of nearly every friend I have who still owns one, plays this little trick on them from time to time. Here's what we do:

1. Turn off the NES console.
2. Blow into bottom of the game, near the chip that connects to the NES.
3. Wipe away any excess dust from the game itself.
4. Blow into the console of the NES.
5. Wipe away any excess dust.
6. Re-insert the game and try again.

If this doesn't work, try placing the game in more delicately, or with more force. It's just a matter of trial and error, and sometimes it will work faster than others. Hope this helped!

Nes wonnt turn on, but when it does red light is flashing


Did you replace the 72 pin connector while it was apart? This is the number 1 reason for NES to fail to load or flash. A brief search of "72 pin connector" on eBay should net you a new connector for about $5 US.
If you have already done this, and the problem is really bad then recheck your work and make sure everything is connected tight.
Also consider that allot of nes games were not taken care of very well, so if the problem is specific to a couple cartridges, consider cleaning them as they are probably not connecting well.
Good luck.

I have an old nintendo and when i put a game in it just blinks an


Make sure the contacts of your games are clean, you can do this by using a damp q-tip with water and cleaning the contacts on both sides of the cartridge, then take another dry q-tip and clean off the contacts, then stick the game in and see if it works you may have to try different ways of putting in the game to see if it responds.

If you can't and multiple games are having the same issue, then your going to have to replace the connector in the NES. You can get them off of ebay like this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-NINTENDO-NES-72-PIN-CONNECTOR-6-MONTH-GUARANTEE_W0QQitemZ370244485864QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVideo_Games_Accessories?hash=item56344a82e8&_trksid=p4295.c0.m299

That one costs around $7.00 and includes shipping.

Here is a guide that explains how to replace the connector in your NES:

Nes power light oes on and off


The nes does this to stop people from playing pirated games, but it can also be because the game cartridge or console is dirty. Try cleaning inside the game cartridge with a cotton bud dipped in a cleaning product of some kind. it mostly works for me!

Freezing


I have the same problem with my genesis. Most likely it freezes if you make the cartridge move any, which is hard to avoid on these older consoles. Same goes for any cartridge based console i.e. NES,SNES,N64 sega
Theres a cheap way to keep the cartridge from moving though, heres what i do; As your inserting the game, wedge something like a quarter, or a small piece of cardboard with the game. It keeps the game from moving, and thus keeping it from freezing.
hope this works for you!!

Is it new?? Maybe you got one of those editions which were put in kiosks in best buy or stuff. They crashed every 20 minutes and sony said it was "On purpose to keep gamers from playing all day and give other people a chance to play" or sort ....

Games won't connect


This is an issue with the 72 pin connector in the system. The contacts inside the system start wearing out or corroding and don't make as good of a connection as they used to. There are multiple places online, such as ebay, where you can buy replacement connectors for the system. The actual repair itself is quite simple. There are many places online that tell you how to do the repair and many places that sell the connector usually include some instructions.
