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.

Re: Original NES image problems
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:
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

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.
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!
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:
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.
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
