You must clean your game connector as well. That should stop the blinking. Brand new connector with dirty games will still ...blink...blink.
If you can open your games to clean ...it's even better so you will see how dirty they are. 20+ years they sure need some TLC.
If you can't open the game...take a q-tips and a cleaner and rub the game connector. When I say rub ..put some pressure when you do it.Some use rubbing alcohool which is not my method of cleaning and other use windex. Still not my cleaning solution. Then dry the connector before inserting the game in the system. Good Luck.

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!
Did you replace the 72 pin connector while it was apart? This is the number 1 reason for NES to fail to load or flash. A brief search of "72 pin connector" on eBay should net you a new connector for about $5 US. If you have already done this, and the problem is really bad then recheck your work and make sure everything is connected tight. Also consider that allot of nes games were not taken care of very well, so if the problem is specific to a couple cartridges, consider cleaning them as they are probably not connecting well. Good luck.
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, also check that your using a audio video cable not the old RF Cables that came out with these console as cable may be faulty. see http://www.gameoz.com.au/store/nintendo-entertainment-system/nes-accessories/ they carry these items and included photo instructions.

The nes does this to stop people from playing pirated games, but it can also be because the game cartridge or console is dirty. Try cleaning inside the game cartridge with a cotton bud dipped in a cleaning product of some kind. it mostly works for me!
you should open your nes and disable the regional lockout chip.
while in there, check the connector and 1) if it is new, make sure it is properly connected to the board, or 2)if its old, use a very small eyeglasses flathead screwdriver to pull pins closer in (1mm-2mm) to a uniform level.
