Question about Nintendo NES Console

Original NES image problems

My original NES was working fine until one day I stuck in Super Mario Bros. (the dual game with Duck Hunt) and there was no image for Duck Hunt. Instead, there was just a solid horizontal line where the Duck Hunt image usually appeared. When playing Mario Brothers, the bottom half of the screen was fuzzy but playable. When I got to to the underground worlds, the entire screen was black except for Mario and some enemies like koopa troopa.

As for other games, they all have similar image problems, mostly related to the bottom half of the screen. Sometimes there is a pink discoloring too.

I have been using my system since '87 and do not want to purchase a new one. Any ideas as to how I can fix this? I have tried cleaning the system and games with my original NES Cleaning Kit already. Would a new 72 pin component do the trick? If so, where is the best place to purchase one? Thanks.

    Unfortunately after ordering and installing a new connecter, the same problem persists. I also purchased the cleaning kit and followed instructions for cleaning the motherboard.

Courtesy of Nintendo Repair Shop, try this site out I heard they are pretty reliable. Sounds to me like a new connector is in order for your NES. They tend to go after a while and the connections get worn out. Here is the link:

Do ye know where i get super mario bros 3 for the nintendo nes


Actual game?
There are several places online to get classic games. One of my reliable hotspots is eBay.
You could always check out yard sales in your area. You would be amazed at the games I have found going that route.

Rom?
There are many sites that offer roms from different game systems available online. Not sure if posting links directly to them is a no no here, so I would say to check out your favorite web search engine.

We downloaded Mario Bros (original) on the Wii It takes the original Nintendo controller to operate, but how do we plug the original Nintendo controller into the Wii ???


Original controller as in the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controller? The NES controller is not officially supported on the Wii, however an adapter exists that goes into the GameCube controller ports which can be purchased at RetroPort. The other control methods the game supports are Wiimote (turned on it's side which acts just like a NES controller), GameCube controller, and the Classic Controller. Hope this helps!

I can't get past level 8-8 (Nintendo DS, Mario Bros.)


Well if you have played the original Super Mario Bros. on NES, then you'll know that the last level has a certain secret path, only crossing which will let you advance further in the level. Same with NSMB, in the last level in the Bowser's castle, just because you encounter Bowser, there is a secret hidden path which you have to cross in the correct manner. When you do so, you hear a sound. Check this video out on how to exactly find the correct path:

I want to play a game with cooking mama tamagotchi and mario


These three characters are owned by three different companies.
Though as some arcade game players might know, Tamagotchi was in a Mario Kart Arcade 2 game. But these machines can be really had to find.
I'd suggest finding a real Tamagotchi toy or finding the old Game Boy Color Tamagotchi game as these follow the original pet simulation formula.
The Tamagotchi games for the DS are all mini game collections with Tamagotchi themed things.

As for Cooking mama,
theres
Cooking Mama 1
Cooking Mama 2
Gardening Mama (released last month or so)
Plus two Gardening Mama games for the Wii.

For Mario I'd sugget;
New Super Mario Bros
Super Mario 64 DS
Mario Kart DS

You can pick these all up from your local game shop for a decent price or better these days.

Tamagotchi can be hard to find, though some gameshops will carry older games.

I hope that helps. Good luck.

Why aren't my games playing on the nintendo fc twin?


The FC Twin connects through an RCA connector, and can be hooked into a surround sound system. When using stereo and surround output from these systems, NES sounds and music may seem very different from their typical mono output. Using output modes that properly generate mono sound, either through a single center speaker or cloned to multiple speakers, the sound output sounds mostly identical to the original NES. The FC Twin does not produce some sounds faithfully, even with mono output; sound effects in the Super Mario Bros. series games will for example immediately seem different. Nevertheless, some later models of the console produce NES sound much more faithfully than units made closer to launch. Recent models produce sound with complete fidelity.
