Nintendo Entertainments system keeps resarting

I have an original Nintendo Entertainments system and it just constantly restarts itself, making flahes of color on the screen.

Any ideas what to do?

    i believe that was a symptom of the game not being read.

    Its not recognizing the game in the slot - or that it is pushed all the way down.

    All you can do is keep trying

The contacts are dirty. Either on the game you are trying to play or on the system its self.
To clean the game, just use some q-tips and windex. Spray the windex on the q-tip and then rub the contacts. Try to not leave any of the q-tip fuzz on the contacts (don't rub to vigorously). And then make sure to let it dry (should be pretty quick!)
There may be a more appropriate cleaning solution to use instead of windex, but it works and everyone has it.
As for the contacts inside the nes, i forget if you can get at them with a q-tip...
Maybe hold off on that and just try cleaning the game.

My roadmate1210 keeps saying I have to restart, how do I resart?

Sounds to me like it's a software issue. Let me guess, it says "Unit needs to be restarted to improve performance" then it shuts down and restarts, and cycles again. SOLUTION: Try updating your software, it's free. call magellan tech support, they'll walk you through.

After much blowing into the game and constant restarts, the N64 will finally begin the game, only to suddenly constantly restart itself. Has anyone experienced this problem and solved it?

Well its because the system is going bad for the console and it needs new processing software
You know how computers redo them selves when they have someting wrong with their software so an N64 console is like that but a simple software so when it re sets its self its like im going to fix it but it cant so this will just keep on happening then.

Can't load Windows, constant restarts.

There could be several issues, but random restarts can be difficult to debug. For now, I'd start with the easiest and that is a memory check.

Visit and download the free bootable floppy or CD (burn the ISO file with free ImgBurn utility if you have no ISO burning application).

Boot the problem system with the floppy or CD and the memory test should start automatically. Let it run over night and see if errors are reported.
