Question about Nintendo NES Console
My adapter is warm after its been in a socket while.does that mean its working?it wont come on at all.also,how long would a nes last anyway?any suggestions would be appreciated.
As far as I know a NES can go on for a very long time if looked after properly. I still have mine with duck hunt and it works fine lol. The only way to check if it is working is to test the external power supply for the correct voltage output with a multimeter. It should be written on it somewhere what the output voltage is. Allow for +/- 2volts as this could be just meter error. If the voltage is too low suspect the external power supply as faulty. If too high it could have fried a component on the internal power supply. Hope this helps. Post on your progress.

You can test it on any other similar era console.
all use the same power supply. You can swap and change them to test it.
