Re: Doesn't recognize game

Use a magnifying glass and check the metal pins that connect to the game. Look for any pins that seem low, these mat not be touching the games connectors. If that doesn't work, i'm afraid it's more likely to be a fault on the main curcuit board; Or get rid of it on eBay on a Sunday, you'll probably get £35-£45 as it is.
Hope this helps?
