Of course, the classic fix is to blow into the game and the input on the console. If that doesn't help, I would suggest using a compressed air canister to blow out any dust in there. It's probably pretty old and in need of some cleaning!

General Game Pak Troubleshooting (NES and Super NES)
Note: It is possible that the problem you have may be game play related. For example, if you cannot defeat a particular enemy, or are missing an item you need to complete an area, the problem is likely game play related and there is nothing wrong with your game. Please check our game play help for assistance.
If the problem you are experiencing is with just one game, please follow the steps below. If the problem is with all games, please visit the troubleshooting section for the system you have, by clicking here.

Check for Unlicensed products. Make sure that you're using only licensed products with your Nintendo system. Unlicensed products are not tested for compatibilty and may not work correctly with all games. Try playing the game without the unlicensed accessory.
Insert the Game Pak into the system. The Game Pak label should be facing the front of the machine (or facing up if you are using an original NES).
Make sure the Game Pak firmly clicks down into place.
Remove all accessories to see if the Game Pak works correctly without the accessory. If the game does work correctly once the accessory is removed, then the game pak and the accessory may not be compatible. Check the game pak instruction manual.
Check the instruction manual for the game to see if it requires any special accessories to operate (such as the Super Scope, NES Zapper, SNES Mouse, etc.).
Do not blow into your Game Paks or systems. The moisture in your breath can corrode and contaminate the pin connectors.
If these steps do not eliminate the symptoms you're experiencing with your game, we recommend purchasing a replacement from a retailer or online auction site that carries older products. For more information, click here.

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!

NES game cheats not working? (NES Ninja Gaiden 2)


could be a number of things... try other games and se if they work, if those do then it is just that game. If no other cheat codes work it is most likely your NES system sorry

Original NES image problems


Courtesy of Nintendo Repair Shop, try this site out I heard they are pretty reliable. Sounds to me like a new connector is in order for your NES. They tend to go after a while and the connections get worn out. Here is the link:

I need .nes files


Impossible.
GBA files are games for a Game Boy Advance emulator (such as Virtual Boy Advance).
NES files are games for a Nintendo Entertainment System (the video game console we used to play when I was a little kid) emulator.

Both console don't work the same way, so do their games. So, technically, it's impossible to convert GBA roms to the NES format.

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.
