Question about Nintendo NES Console
These symptoms are a pretty good indicator that it probably is your 72 pin connector that is grimy, pitted or too lose. The first option is to get a 72 pin connector cleaner. It's built like a NES game you put in and pull out to clean the pins. That works if the pins are not pitted or loose. You can pick one up for about 8 bucks or less. The second and (IMHO) best option is to replace your 74 pin connector. It's not that difficult, and can be accomplished with a Phillips screwdriver in about 10 -15 minutes. nesrepairshop.com supplies directions with the ones they sell and it's not hard. The pin connectors run about 10 bucks. I would go with replacing the connector or sending it in to a shop and have them do it for you if you don't want to attempt it.
