Try cleaning the cartridge terminal/contact with a cloth with mild solvent or try using a pencil eraser.

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!

I turn it on and the game won't play nes so it turns blue or pink or white the color just changes everytime I turn it on

have you tried blowing into the slot on the nes where you put the games or into the bottom of the game itself. sometimes dust gets in there and causes errors like that.
hope this helps

Whenever i turn on my NES the power light blinks and the screen blinks colors, why?

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. see they carry these items and included photo instructions.

Same thing as the other guy, it just flashes a pink screen

If by Nintendo you mean the old classic consoles... well when they get older the game and console don't connect very well. I spent several minutes trying to get the game to read on my NES. The usual solution people have is to blow on the connectors on the game but I found just inserting the game in and trying each time is just as well. Eventually they will align but beware, sometimes the slightest movement can throw it off so don't move the system around after you get it to work.

NES in Black and white only...?!

Thats quite a odd issue, and I have never heard or seen a case such as this. Maybe your color balance chip is fried? NES is a 20+ year old system, so I wouldn't doubt the NES may have more issues then just a lockout chip error or a new pin connector.
