Well the white screen means that the capacitor is broken then and needs to be replaced.

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!

There is a 72 pin cartridge slot inside the NES that wears over time, I believe replacing this should correct the problem. You can pick one up for about 5 bucks.

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.

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.

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.
