Question about Nintendo NES Console
Today I installed a new 72 pin connector in my NES console. I put it all back together and the first three games I tried worked fine but then I put in another cartridge and the screen went this blank pink color. It has done that with every other game I've tried even the ones that worked before. I took my console apart again to see if I missed anything and it all looked good but it still doesn't work. Any ideas?

It sounds like the pins on the game or the 72 pin connector in the console is dirty. Nornally the game connectors get dirty and when you put it in the console that transfers the dirt to the 72 pin connector. You need to purchase a cleaning kit from your local gamestop or other such store. Do Not Use Alcohol to clean your games or the console.

to my knowledge no, all screws on the NES are phillips screws.
If you see some funny star shaped screws then you need what they call a gamebit. Check ebay. There are two sizes of "gamebit" so if you need the tool check you get the right one.

You may have damaged something on the board during the process. I suggest going over what you did, making sure the 72 pin connector is seated properly so the connection can be made cleanly, and if all else fails snag another one on ebay and try again...

take it apart and remove the new pin. Clen where the pin connects with brasso, and a soft cloth. Repeat untill you dont get any more black on the cloth. Then remove brasso residue with windex and soft cloth. Make sure it is very dry. Put the pin back on and put it back together. It should now work like a charm.
