If this is with the cartridge in the down position, it is likely that the system and game connectors aren't properly aligned. This happens with most NES after a while so just keep popping the game in and out until it works. I've spent up to 5 mins to get it to work so keep trying. Also don't shake or move the console if you get it working. The slightest movement could throw it off. It's just the system showing its age.

Does the original Nintendo NES-001 require a certain AC adapter. Cause I doesn't have the original ac adapter with same spec. My console power light is blinking on an doff. can that be the issuept


As long as it's 9 volt and about 500mA it should be ok. Just seen an original that says 9 volt and 400mA.

The current (mA) can be higher than the original but not the voltage that has to be 9.

1000mA = 1 Amp. So anything over 400mA is fine, but not less.

Whenever i turn on my NES the power light blinks and the screen blinks colors, why?


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.

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.

Nes wont work light just blinks


All Nintendos do this... just blow on the game cartridge and inside the door really hard. Make sure the game is fully inserted and pushed down then try it.

If it's just your power light that doesn't work but the system still t powers on it should be fine. You just have a broken bulb.

My power light keeps flashing.


Diagnostically this isn't a signal that the company lists. This therefore must be a short. Bring this in for service and let them know that your device wont power up. I'd say it need a nes switch or power supply. Hope this helps! Thanks!
