Question about Nintendo Super NES Console
Hey my original nes does that flashing thing when i go to turn it on and i dont get any output. what exactly is a top loader and how does it work and where would i find one.
Okay there are three solutions the flashing is normal what it is
is that the connections are old and worn out so you can go buy a new 72 pin connector off ebay and search online alot of people have them and then you have to open your nes and replace it pretty cheap and easy but this will still flash once in a awhile
or you can buy a top loader there are alot on the market and they range in price as well
there is one that is made by nintendo but in good condition it is pretty price some times
and there are the aftermarket one which i have two and they are very well made and most play two systems i have one that play nes and snes and i have another that play nes and sega i bought both form ebay for around 40 -50 dollars each and they are very well made but they only accept the controllers that they are shipped with which is disappointing they look and have the same connection as snes or nes but nes or snes controller don't work and if you play alot and use stuff like game genie then the originals are the best to start with
i have a nes top loader and a original and two aftermarket toploaders as i used them all for differnet reason mostly some games are harder to get to work then others if you want to stay original then find the best one you can like one that some one bearly played then open it up your self or take it some where and have them clean it and replace the 72 pin connector with a new one and this should help greatly with the flashing also clean your games with some rubbing alcohol that some times help as the games are some times the probelm or you could have them professional cleaned up
what i do is any game or system i am planning on keeping is find the best one i can or a good price then i clean and replace all connections and clean all the games by opening them up then storing them in bags inside storage tote so they won't get nasty again and it seems to work but if you are starting with a system that is dirty and games that are pretty older then you relly have to play with it to get them to work and most of that time it's just better to pay alittle more for one that is in better condition i buy alot from garage sales and thift store that are in good condition just need a little touch here and there just look at the connections on the games the borad that the connections are on is white not brown or orange and the connections are gold not black and the system should have a clean looking inside don't worry about the connection as all older connections are bad just get a great looking system that functions turns on and off and the cartiage lockdown work and is smooth functioning the crack it open clean it up use alot of rubbing alcohol and compressing air and eletrionic cleaner and you should be good
to find the system look on ebay or search the internet try local game stores or try gamestop online
well i hope this helps thanks
