Help!!!- Power Light Blinks on original Nintendo

Hello. We have an original Nintendo (1985) and the power light blinks when we are trying to start up. We have just recovered our Nintendo system out of the garage yesterday and of course it was dusty. The Nintendo system has turned on once since we have tried to make it work and it lasted for about 25 minutes, then cut off and started blinking again. What can we do to make the system work again but this time for a LONGER period of time??

I had an original that did the same thing and the problem is that
1. it's really dirty on the inside and needs to be clean or
2. the thing that "reads" the cartridge isn't tight enough

if it's problem one then:

The connecter on the inside needs to be cleaned so just use a brush to clean out the big chunks and an compressed air to clean out the little pieces. If the connecter looks rusted go to ebay and buy another one (get a gold or silver one because they work the best.)

if it's problem two then:

Open the system and GENTLY press the two sides together so when you put the game in it is "tighter" and it can read it better.

if you don't know which is the problem, try to do solution one before two. Good luck!

What color is the power light when the system shuts off?
    Red: If the power light is red, or flashing red, when the system turns off, then the system's battery needs to be charged.


    Blue: If the power light is blue when the system turns off, then there appears to be a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

    If the orange recharge indicator light blinks while the system is plugged in and charging, then it is likely that the battery is not installed properly.

    If you have ensured that the battery is installed properly but the orange light still blinks, check to make sure that the battery is a licensed by Nintendo. The only licensed Nintendo DSi battery will have the model number "TWL-003" (Nintendo DSi) or "UTL-003" (Nintendo DSi XL) and will display Nintendo's logo.
    Call 1-800-255-3700 if you still need help.

Turn on power hear it come on then turns it self off and power light starts blinking


Blinking light may be a error code----look closely and see if blinks in a sequence---3 blinks, pause 3 blinks or 5,5.

The blinking light means set is in protective shutdown, Do you see a sequence to the blinks?

I am here to help.

If needed, unplug set and plug it back in and try to turn on---watch for likely error code.

The red light in front was blinking.the repair man said it was the power board.We replaced it , now the red light blinks 6 times then quits. There is no picture but when on you can here the sound.


A 6 blink SOS shutdown, you would want to be looking at the SC, SU and the SD boards. One of those boards is causing the malfunction. Possibly, but unlikly(I have to mention it for just in case reasons) the PDP panel could have blown those boards.

Just out of curiosity, what was the original problem that made you call the first repair guy?

Lost oem power cord


You need to be sure the actual current supported by the generic universal adapter as some cant fit the requirements of your device so the nintendo will lack of current no matter the voltage you have.

Other thing you must take in consideration is the polarization of the plug as you can put inverse polarization and damage your console. Not like your case as you have a blinking light so looks more like and system error.

Try finding an original data for the current requirements in mA (i.e. 500mA) or the power also works before you make some calculations (i.e. 10w).

TV doesn't turn on


You really should give make & model number when posting, it helps us immensely, your lamp and possibly the ballast is bad, start with a new lamp first, odds are very good that it will fix your problem, can`t help more without manufacturer and model number, good luck, ps, order the original lamp, generics are junk and a waste of your money.
