Question about Nintendo NES Console
My Nintendo NES was working fine until I tried to put a game in and it will not connect and play. The screen blinks grey and black. But if I push down on the game in the console it will connect and play, but once I release the pressure on the game it disconnects. Any suggestions?
This is an issue with the 72 pin connector in the system. The contacts inside the system start wearing out or corroding and don't make as good of a connection as they used to. There are multiple places online, such as ebay, where you can buy replacement connectors for the system. The actual repair itself is quite simple. There are many places online that tell you how to do the repair and many places that sell the connector usually include some instructions.
