Question about Nintendo NES Console

2 Answers

Original nes I have an original nes, and up to recently it has worked fine.  The nes has been in storage for the past couple of years (still in the packaging).  I have just brought it out again, and when trying to turn the nes on, the light doesn't come on, and the system doesn't work. So how do I fix this?

    The RF connection. ( I think?)

  • Iret Jun 12, 2008

    Yup.

  • Iret Jun 13, 2008

    The power light comes on now, but it is flashing.  The screen is now black with lines going up and down the screen.

    I'm not getting anywhere by blowing out the cartridges.  I have done that to all of the games I own and I do not get a picture. I have used two cans of air.  


    I have also tried using the av cables, but it is the same thing as the rf connector.

    Did you plug a little grey box into the back of the TV to the Coax connector?

    How is the NES connected to the TV?

    What happens when you change the channel to 3 or 4 while you have a cartridge in the NES?



    Make sure you have a controller plugged into the player 1 spot.

That works too. I remember I used to have a cartridge cleaner and alcohol for those things.

Its switched to the correct channel.

If you have a set of av cables that might work better if your tv can work with it. In case the RF modulator is bad.

    There must be something really wrong with it for it to behave that way. Maybe you can find a work model on EBay.

How-to check a Lamp Ballast board on a Sony KDF-55e2000 TV for proper operation


You cant test them unfortunately. The only reliable way is to swap it out with a known good ballast. They can and do go bad sitting as the capacitors start to dry out from not using them. Sitting is bad for electronics. Buy a ballast from ebay(used known good) and try it. Thats your best bet honestly.

Where to find the reset button on my packard bell pc hard drive




Click on the "Start" button and input "Recovery" into the search box. Click on "Recovery Manager."


Click on the "Advanced Options" button when the Windows recovery manager appears. Choose the "System Recovery" option from the list and click on "Next."

Click "No" to decline using the Microsoft system restore and click "Next." Note that HP computers have their own restore system.

Click on "Back up your files first (recommended)." Click on "Next." Follow the instructions given to you by the recovery manager for backing up your files.

This is your opportunity to back up any important or original files before you reset the HP computer to its original settings.

Save these files to removable storage devices such as DVD disks, CD disks, alternative hard drives (that you are not performing a system reset on) or flash drives.

Click on "Next" when the screen reads "Recover without backing up your files." Note that after you proceed with this step, you will lose any and all information on your Hard Drive that you did not back up.

Restart your computer after it has finished the recovery procedure. Visit the HP Support and drivers website and click on the option that says "Download drivers and software (and firmware)." Enter your computer model number (find this on the front of your tower) and press "Enter."

Download the most recent drivers and save them on your desktop. Double-click the driver package and follow the on-screen instructions to install the drivers.

Insert your removable storage device that contains the files that you backed up. Copy the files to the appropriate places on your hard drive.

hope this helps

I have a xerox Flat Panel LCD Monitor 19" i purchased at office depot in 11/05, manufactured by Proview Technology, Inc. Model# 900P. I love this monitor, about 1 year ago I moved and it went into...


Depends where it was in storage. It may have got damp.
I would try leave it inside in the warm and try again.
If no luck it would probably be cheaper to get a new one than getting it repaired. A 19 monitor start at about £70

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.

Audio problem with NES


try switching both the tv and the rf switch to ch.4, if that doesn't help make sure that there is nothing connected to the in port on the rf switch and try it again, also make sure the connector of the rf switch has a straight pin and not bent too badly, also make sure the pin does not look tarnished/corroded in any way, also check the connector at the end that connects to the nes, i would try changing the rf adapter before the console, if the power cord is in good shape everything else should be easy to find a replacement for. if you hae a snes try changing the rf adapters, or try using rca type cables, the out ports are on the side of the nes and most likely on the back or front of your tv.
