Question about Nintendo NES Console

2 Answers

Power Problem My nes seems to have two problems with it. The first problem is the classic blinking light, however after a few attempts I can get it to work normally. The second problem is more consistent: After about 4 minutes of game play the screen will go black, and the power light will dim. I can restart the game again and it will work properly for another four minutes until it shuts off again. Does anyone know what's happening?

    I tried this and it still cuts out after four minutes. This time the light was completely out.

The second problem sounds like the unit is getting too hot and overheating. Best bet to try fixing that is to set the NES up on a shoe box or something that is empty on the inside so that it can absorb some of the heat out of the unit.

I recently purchased a nes at goodwill. It came with 2 games. The system will play the 2 games that came with it but any others I purchased will not play, red light blinks and tv screen blinks.


Of course, the classic fix is to blow into the game and the input on the console. If that doesn't help, I would suggest using a compressed air canister to blow out any dust in there. It's probably pretty old and in need of some cleaning!

Nes light keep's blinking


well, heres what you do.. turn it off, and eject the cartridge.. blow in the bottom where the chip is to get rid of any dust, and put it back in.. turn it on.. if it still blinks, turn it off, and eject the game again.. this time blow into the nes itself.. put the game back in, and turn it on.. if its STILL blinking, grab another cartridge, and TURN OFF THE NES its very important. press down on the game you want to play, like your going to eject it, but instead of letting it up, slide that second cartridge you grabbed in on top of the first one.. turn the nes on, and enjoy...

it SHOULD work... if not, try taking a q-tip and dipping it in hydrogen peroxide, and cleaning the nes and game.

Blinking screen


Rooster...the unit must be off before the game can be inserted. It is unclear if you've damaged anything by doing the other way.
