When my nes isnt blinking.....

It took a while blowing, smacking, and turning it on off, reset, what have you.
Finally the light stoped blinking, but just a blank screen appears on the set.
Any ideas?....

Lol man i used to spend countless hours on my nes just blowing out game cartredges and looking at green screens. Ok there are many things that could be cuasing this problem check the bolts on the bottom of the cartredge to make sure there still shiney, blow the dust out of the cartredge and system, insert the cartredge and press it down turn the system on then while the cartredge is in adjust it and hit reset everytime you do. Like i sad it takes alot of patience to work a NES so just keep at it the game will eventually start if your NES is still in running condition

I got a NES (finally) but i got a problem. when i start it up with (for example) zelda i can select a save, in other words when I push the up or the down button it does nothing. But when i press start to start the game i can walk up and down just fine.

I recently purchased a nes at goodwill. It came with 2 games. The system will play the 2 games that came with it but any others I purchased will not play, red light blinks and tv screen blinks.


Of course, the classic fix is to blow into the game and the input on the console. If that doesn't help, I would suggest using a compressed air canister to blow out any dust in there. It's probably pretty old and in need of some cleaning!

Light keeps blinking we pushed the reset button but it still keeps blinking. It is one of the first nintendo they came out with


The 72 pin connector is bad in the NES console which is why your getting the red light to constantly blink.

The connector needs to be replaced, this is one site I found thru google that sells replacement connectors. Click here.

That site happens to give you an installation guide that will show you how to take out the old connector and install the new one.

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.

Red blinking light


Try blowing the dust out of both the system and the games. Purchase one of those air duster cans from a computer store. Open up the door to the system where the games go in and go to town blowing all the dust out. Then do the same to the cartridges.
