Question about Nintendo NES Console
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.
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:
Give it a shot and rate me when you can. Thanks.
