It could be your TV, if your tv has video adjustment, just mess around with the options until the picture comes in clear, if that dosn't work, than it's probably the RF box on the motherboard (if you wanna know what that is search it up, but it's very technical), try getting a famiclone, new third-party NES's, i recommend the Retro Entertainment System, it works great and cheap on some sites. If that dosn't work, try a diffrent TV.

How do i properly connect my nintendo nes sytem to my direct tv. when i use the av cables i just get a blue screen. can u give me step by step to connect correctly.


Note: This type of connection is not possible with the newer-style NES.

Installation Steps:

Locate the Audio/Video inputs on the back of the TV.
Place the yellow end of the AV cable into the Video "in" on the back of the TV. Connect the white or red end of the cable to Audio "in" ("left" or "mono"). Use a slight twisting motion when inserting each cable and ensure the cables are firmly pressed into the input.
On the other end of the AV cable, plug the yellow end into the "Video" (yellow) input. Plug the white or red end into the "Audio" (red) input, on the back of the NES.
After the system is connected to the TV:

Insert the Game Pak firmly into the Control Deck.
Plug the Controller(s) into the front of the system. Use the far left port for player one.
Plug the AC Adapter into the back of the system . Plug the other end into a wall outlet.
Press the Power button in on the front of the NES.
Turn on the TV and locate the input select. It is often called: TV/Video, input select, AUX (auxiliary), Line, Line In, Input, Source, Select, In, or EXT (external). Switch the input select to show the Nintendo game.
The game image should now be displayed on the screen. You are ready to play!
If after following these directions you are not able to view the game (for instance, if the red power light flashes off and on), try our Troubleshooting Tips.

I HAVE A NINTENDO NES IT PLAYS FINE IF SOMETHING BUMPS THE AV CABLE THE SCREEN GOES BLURRY AND WE HAVE TO TWIST THE CONNECTION TO THE NINTENDO TO GET THE SCREEN RIGHT BUT IT DOESNT LAST LONG WHAT CAN I DO


Not so sure, I still have mine, but it is messed up. What I did is i went out and bought a FC Twin. Its a system that can play NES and SNES games. It is so cool and easier. You could try to get an FC Twin or go online and buy a new cord. Hope that helps.

My screen on my nes is blurry how can i fix that


If your screen shows a blurry image it can be a few possible things (and only these things).

1. The first and most obivous problem is being on the wrong channel - for example, if you are on Channel 3, but the switch on the back of your system is set to channel 4, you'll see a VERY fuzzy picture; simple switch to the other channel and it will come in clear.

2. Now...assuming you are on the correct channel, does your television receive other pictures clearly (for example if you change to a normal broadcasting station and it is still blurry, then it is a problem with your TV and not your NES system). Another way to test is to simply switch TVs and see if the same picture problem occurs.

If 1 and 2 are not the problem, them we know the problem is with your NES system and this should be an easy fix.

If you are using an RF Switch, then it is most likely the pin on either end of the switch has become bent (or was bent and now is bent back) and will no longer give a clear picture. The easiest way to test this is find a set of AV cables (any av cables - these are the red, white, and yellow cables that often hook DVD players to television). Find a set and just take one of those ends and connect it to the side of the NES system into the circle that says VIDEO and take the other end of that same color and put it into your TV into the circle that says VIDEO (note that the colors don't always match up on the newer TVs, just make sure that if you are using the yellow end of the AV cable and plug it into the video on the NES that you plug the other yellow end of the av cable into whatever color on the TV says VIDEO! Then change your tv to the cannel for that AV slot (usually AV 1 or INPUT 1). Turn the nintendo back on and see if the picture comes through clearly - if it does, it means you had a bad RF switch and you can either get a new one, or just use AV cables instead!

One of the above problems IS the problem - I've repaired over 1000 NES systems and 95% of the time it's just a bad RF switch (so the AV cable test works best)

Nes flashing black and white and making a horrible sound


a 'front load' nes ALWAYS does this, even if the connector pins inside the console are new. the cartriges on a Front Load nes rarely completely seat, as Nintendo redesigned the Famicom very poorly for the US market. try this 1. put the cart in as usual, but hold it all the way down 2. slip an unwanted/extra cart in on top of the metal hoop above the cart your using. this gives a better contact for the cart. try cleaning the cartrige pins as well. some won't read right if there's ANYTHING on the pins.

Original nintendo games on LCD tv


NES games on the Wii's virtual console can sometimes have display issues because the NES only supported 240 lines of resolution, which is stretched over a standard TV with 480 lines.
Making the jump to HD,on a TV that can do up to 1080 lines, there's rare occasions that more issues could come up.
I have never had any issues with Virtual console games on my HDTV, but there is a solution for finicky TVs.
Plug a nunchuck into your Wiimote before starting your NES game. When the game starts, click on Operations Manual. When the Operations screen comes up, press the Z button on the nunchuck, and the a button, and 2 button on the Wiimote all together. You will hear a sound indicating you did this right. The system will auto ajust the game to your TV, so when you exit the operations screen, the game will display correctly.
