Re: nes

Weee... I miss the old days. I am assuming that you have a replacement. And make sure that your power is not plugged.

What you need is a standard size Phillips screwdriver. There are 4 screws at the bottom of the system (Take them out).

Now on the inside, you have to mess with the screws along the board. You won't have to mess with the ones attached to the controller ports, cause it may have long cords like mine did.

There is also a grounding shield that you have to take off the top of the connector you are talking about.

Once all screws are off there are 2 additional ones holding the connector down (If I remember right, they are shorter then all the other screws).

Carefully lift the board itself from the rear of the system and pull the connector out. That should be about it.

I have 2 Nintendo NES systems. One I thought didn't work and needed the 72 pin piece changed, but when I turned it on the other day, it sort of worked. The people in the games came up with letters and...

Secret trick: take NES cartridge, press cartridge down and waggle the cartridge inside the NES and then hold the NES down and shove the cartridge onto the pins. An alternate solution is to take a Q tip, dip it in rubbing alcohol and clean out all the dust inside your game.

The red light flashes on my NES and on the TV screen, it keeps on changing colors. Do you know whats wrong?

The NES is touchy like that, sadly-- your problem isn't uncommon. My NES, and the NES of nearly every friend I have who still owns one, plays this little trick on them from time to time. Here's what we do:

1. Turn off the NES console.
2. Blow into bottom of the game, near the chip that connects to the NES.
3. Wipe away any excess dust from the game itself.
4. Blow into the console of the NES.
5. Wipe away any excess dust.
6. Re-insert the game and try again.

If this doesn't work, try placing the game in more delicately, or with more force. It's just a matter of trial and error, and sometimes it will work faster than others. Hope this helped!

When I turn on the Snes just appears a black screen, i check the RF conection and it´s ok, right channel 3 i clean where you insert the games with alchol it doesn´t work

Well you could try cleanining the gamepacks with qutips and rubbing alcohal.
But the bad scenario is that the super nintendo console is on its way out.

My NES works great but there is a constant buzzing sound in the background. I cleaned the 72 pin connecter and checked he aV conections, But it still does it.

Well maybe the tv is causing this problem like the speakers on the tv are messed up not the console its self then. The console is fine. Its the tv then.

Why do I have vertical white lines when I put any game into the NES system? Games will play but lines are annoying!

thats cause your connector is going bad probably. to verify this, instead of using the RF connector, use the a/v cables and if you get white lines either way then you know the connector inside of the NES needs to be changed.

I had the same problem a little while ago. If you are using a third party power source, that is probably the problem.
