Hi sounds like your console has a weak connector pin and is lsing contact with your game. I fixed mine buy purchasing a new connector pin from www.gameoz.com.au and it included step by step instructions with photos and a few tips on how to clean NES cartridge games as their is no use in installing a new 72 pin connector if you dont properly clean the NES games because installing dirty games into a new connector pin will result in console blinking flashing again.

The existing connecter can be cleaned and bent upwards. Usually I find that replacement of the connecter is unnecessary.

It's as simple as unscrewing the console by removing all the screws from the bottom. Once inside take off the metal piece over the area where the game is inserted. Once under there you can remove the two screws that hold the 72 pin connector in and pull it out and slip a new one in. Put it back together in reverse.

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!

I have changed the pin connector on my nes, it does not flash anymore but now i get a blank screen can someone help me?


First try connecting through the av ports on the side of the console rather than the RF port on the rear of the unit.

If that doesn't work then your problem is likely a loose connection inside, go back in and reassemble.

I have had this issue with several consoles; these two solutions usually take care of it, though in rare cases a defective 72 pin connector was at fault even though it was brand new.

Good luck.

I replaced the 72 pin connector in my Nintendo Nes and now I just get a grey screen? what can bee the problem? Cecilia


You may have damaged something on the board during the process. I suggest going over what you did, making sure the 72 pin connector is seated properly so the connection can be made cleanly, and if all else fails snag another one on ebay and try again...

Please help! NES problem, and it's not the 72 pin connector.


It sounds like the pins on the game or the 72 pin connector in the console is dirty. Nornally the game connectors get dirty and when you put it in the console that transfers the dirt to the 72 pin connector. You need to purchase a cleaning kit from your local gamestop or other such store. Do Not Use Alcohol to clean your games or the console.

Clean your games too once you replace the 72 pin connector or you're just dirtying it up again. Not to mention the games has enough crud to keep them from working correctly.

How to fix my nintendo (NES) without replacing anything


Yes, this is a 72 pin connector problem. The connector has become dirty or oxidized and needs replacing or cleaning. Problem can usually be solved by buying a NES console Pin cleaner which inserts like a game. The "Eliminator" is one which works great wet or dry to eliminate this problem.
