Re: Blinking screen

No you just have to take the game out of the console and clean it

with alcohol and a Q tip and then put the game back in the console to the left and push it in and push down and hit the
power button and it should work

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....


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.

Stop working just red light blinking and when I turn off and turn on working just for 2 seconds then again red light blinking

Plug out the disc, and all cables connected to your console after 2 to 3 minutes see if it will run, if this does not fix the problem try to connect to a different outlet, maybe the power supply of your console is damage and needs repair.

My console keep on blinking i cant seem to operate on the screen

you have to sync the remotes to the wii box[consol]

On the wii box there is a door under the power/restart buttons, in there is a red button push it..

next on the remotes open the battery cover, look for the red sync button,

push the sync on the wii box first then on both remotes to sync [synchronise] them.

it can be a pain in the... but keep trying untill it sync's

3 blinking redlights..just black screen

it,s worth a look at the xbox forums on the internet regarding this.
dependant on how many red lights you have, the console has overheated. or you have a A/V output fault.
Look on the xbox 360 forums sites for further Information.

Power Problem

The second problem sounds like the unit is getting too hot and overheating. Best bet to try fixing that is to set the NES up on a shoe box or something that is empty on the inside so that it can absorb some of the heat out of the unit.
