72-pin connector gone bad. It's a common problem with the original NES line.

See here for a good set of pictures and how to swap:

Normal nintendo won't listen to a word I say it won't turn on, the screen will be black then. Whenever I ask It to play games it will flash the red light on and off and the screen will also flash on and...


Video games consoles want you to understand them and they will disobey you if they think that you don't have enough experience or no experience at all. You are going to have to earn yout consoles trust by cleaning it out or by cleaning out the game packs with qutips and rubbing alcohol. Mine are like that then they only will listen to me.

My nintendo 64 is hooked up to the video/audio input on my tv but the screen wont change! it stays blue. how can i play it?


Usually if a Nintendo 64 won't start up even though it's connected properly, it's because the cartridge contacts are dirty. Try blowing out the cartridge slot with canned air, that usually works for me. If that doesn't work, you may also need to clean your game(s).

My NDS just shuts down randomly in the midst of playing, usually with the green light giving a few blinks. No flashing screens though, and it's definitely charged. What could be wrong?


Is it still under warranty? Call Nintendo and have them repair it for you. I had the same exact issue, Nintendo solved my problem in less than a week.

It wont play the screen stays blue


Well the blue screen is a sign and a sympotom of a power supply failure then. So it won't work any more.

The gameboy screen comes on, but the nintendo logo is blurred, and the screen goes blank, without the pokemon opening screen showing up


This is usually solved by blowing in the cartridge and putting it back in firmly (don't slam it). It just means that the contacts on the game aren't all properly touching the pins on the system. You may also find it useful to put rubbing alcohol on a q tip, wringing out the excess moisture, and gently clean the gold parts inside of he game. Then allow it plenty of time (i.e. 3 hours) to dry before playing. Make sure that you put in the game straight and properly when you go to play. If this does not work then you may want to look into either cleaning the pins on the Game Boy, or there may be something wrong with the game itself. Try then to play it in a different Game Boy. I hope this helped.

System just keeps flashing blue on the screen what


Hi sounds like the common fault found with these old retro consoles. Flashing light is mostly because the system does not make good contact with the game. which may be because of a worn out connector pins in side the console or dirty games recommend cleaning all your games with a game cartridge paste cleaner and replacing the connector pin with a new one. see http://www.gameoz.com.au/store/nintendo-entertainment-system/nes-accessories/ they carry these items and included photo instructions.

Power button failure


  • Power Light Shuts Off
    If the power shuts off during game play (even as much as 30 minutes after the system is turned on), then turns off and won't turn back on or the fan isn't working, the system needs repair.
  • Power Light Flashes
    If the power light flashes once when power button is pressed, then turns off and won't turn back on, the system needs repair
