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!

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.

Battery? console has no charge when plugged into wall outlet I push power button blue LED comes on briefly , then red flashes 3 times, and the yellow LED lights up along with the health warning on the...


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.

Trying to reformat my ibm think pad from safe mode any thoughts on how to do this with out the disc?


Hello.

Often, IBM systems have a partition that restores your system to its original state (factory restore / recovery).

Power off your Thinkpad. Power on and press the F11 key repeatedly when the Thinkpad begins to start up

You should be able to access the partition and the instructions should take you through the process of recover.

Hope this helps.
