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!

I have an xbox360 and it freezes after 10 seconds of being swiched on it hasnt got the ring of death please help

First, try taking out your hard drive and see if it will play a game then. If that doesn't work, then its likely to red light soon. If you eventually get three red lights, the x-clamp fix usually works.

Light stays red.

I have had this happen to me before to my Xbox360. Its called the ring of death. You can ship your console to get it fixed or bring it to the stor where you bought it and trade it in and you might have to buy another game console.
