    I found the problem was with the game, i blew on it, without spitting and kept trying it, and eventually it worked, or you might need to try a different game

    I just bought a used NES, because my brother seems to have broken our other one. I have not played my games in over 7 years, and every game i have tried either turns off or freezes on the NES i just got yesterday. I can't imagine that the games would suddenly all freeze, right?!

    Blowing on the 72-pins thing helps, but the game usually freezes within 5 minutes. Where can i get a new 72-pin thing? would cleaning it really make a difference? It seems like if it does it this much that it is worn out, not just in a need of cleaning.

    Any help to find another one or is cleaning the best thing to do??

Yes, this is a 72 pin connector problem. The connector has become dirty or oxidized and needs replacing or cleaning. Problem can usually be solved by buying a NES console Pin cleaner which inserts like a game. The "Eliminator" is one which works great wet or dry to eliminate this problem.

My nintendo nes co nsole is all hooked up right but power light keeps blinking


Well it sounds like the fuse is broken and needs to be replaced then 1.5 amp ico fuse for the Super Nintendo console I think that kijijiji and eBay sell these fuse types for SNES consoles the fuse will have to be soldered on and solder the old one off first too. If you don't fell comfortable with fixing it find a place that fixes old consoles or find some one that can fix it for you or just buy a new console

Console blinks when game is loaded


Hi there, here's a fix that may help, I've done it on quite a few NES and all have started working. Basically the pins that connect to the cartridge have been pushed flat over time so your not getting a clean connection.

Hi, I was wondering...how do you fix a NES which has been blinking? Like the screen flashing and restarting the game?


Replace the connector, these wear out over time. Here is a place I found thru Amazon that sells them:

http://www.amazon.com/New-Nintendo-72-pin-Connector-Guarantee-DS/dp/B000A3IA0Y

It will require you to take apart the system and to take out the old connector and replace it with the new one and then put the system back together and it will be like you have a whole new NES again.

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.

I have an old Nintendo nes and the power button keeps blinking on and off.


Okay, the blinking is not fixed by a new 72-pin; thats a common misconception. You need to disable your NES lock-out chip, its the reason games blink. Cut the 4th pin on your NES chip under the motherboard, its called "3193A". Do it at your own risk, if your remove it correctly the NES will work perfectly and never blink ever again.
