It can mean many things, but probably the video output or the cable between the NES and whatever it is connected to, might have bad/broken contacts.
It's hard to troubleshoot just by writing.
NES is old, it doesn't live forever. You might as well get a collector to pay top dollar for it and have him fix it. Or use the box for some custom HTPC project (example: https://kyber.ninja/content/Building%20a%20Nintendo%20HTPC/ )

SOURCE: My screen on my tv turns white when I turn my NES

The console is having difficulty reading the cartridge. Check the console for dust and/or dirt and give it a good cleaning with a can of condensed air. Also check the cartridge for dust and blow that out thoroughly. It should work after that. Put the cartridge in, making sure it's pressed in all the way and enjoy!

Note: Some NES consoles get a bit finicky in their old age so you might need to make sure the cartridge is in there firmly. I still have my NES and after 21 years it still works great.

This is possible a problem with your A/V cords. Try "jiggling" them around when you have the NES turned on, and if there is no picture or sound after that, you may need a new set of the cables.

Green screen nes


Well the green screen on an NES console means that the pin connected needs to be replaced then. For a SNES console try cleaning the game packs out the quips and venigar and try cleaning the cartage reader with quips and venigar too.

No audio video


NES AV to TV Hookup



Note: This type of connection is not possible with the newer-style NES.

Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the AV cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. Connect the white or red end of the cable to Audio "in" ("left" or "mono"). Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
On the other end of the AV cable, plug the yellow end into the "Video" (yellow) input. Plug the white or red end into the "Audio" (red) input, on the back of the NES.
After the system is connected to the TV:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the system. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Press the Power button in on the front of the NES.
Turn on the TV and locate the input select. It is often called: TV/Video, input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!
If after following these directions you are not able to view the game (for instance, if the red power light flashes off and on), try our Troubleshooting Tips.

I just tried to try my NES (wichs hadn't been use for a long time) again. When i plugged everything and turned the NES on, the light start blinking. Then, I put a game in it and opened the tv on channel 3....


Hi,

You can try to change the input to Video instead of channel 3 since you're using a RCA (Red, Yellow and White) cable.

Thanks for using Fixya.
