Sorry to say but if this is happening with all the games then there is a fault with your console. May be just as bad or dirty contact in the cartridge slot. So you may want to open it up to have a look and clean it out. But there's a big change you didn't get your money's worth.

I had a similair problem. My nitendo would blink or show a black screen so i watched this video and it fixed it. Its still not perfect because i need to wiggle the game around to get it to work but its better than it was before.

Don't give up! these systems are 20+ years old and need some TLC.
Open it up and give it a good cleaning. use compressed air on the board. You may consider disabling the regional lockout chip (i always do). i would definately tighten the 72-pin connector by using a small eyeglasses flathead screwdriver and prying the pins up 1-2mm.
Cleaning the game would be good too but you need a 3.5mm security bit to open it. i would at least use compressed air in the cartridge and run a cotton swab inside of it.
getting an old nes running is well worth it! i hope i could help!

While playing Oblivion on my Xbox, when I enter the world, my screen turns red. The title screen and other screens are fine, but while viewing the world, just red. Thx

this is a glitch that occurs sometimes when your character takes damage and you walk through a door or something causing game to load to a new screen/area. You will have to load an earlier saved game to get rid of the annoying red ring around tv screen

We bought a system at a garage sale. We bought a "Cars " game. That works. Every other game does not work. It keeps comming up to the Browser screen and will not load the games. I knew there...

We have had the same problem with 2 ps2's. You can always try one of those cleaning cd's, but in the end we pulled them apart. It seems to be an accumulation of fluff and dust that causes it. Cleaned them out and hey presto, we had 2 fully working systems!
