    I have the original Nintendo game system (just off EBay) guy assured me it worked he hooked it up before he sent it and it worked- hooked up used the video cables first and then with the coax adapter. Neither worked - just blinking red light. Help Not sure what to do. Will trying blowing out dust on system - see if that helps - anyother suggestions - talked with Nintendo support and they said system probably is no good.

    My original Nintendo was not used for a few years. It had been fine. Now the red light blinks. I've tried both a lint free cloth, and an artist's brush to clean out the console. No luck. Blowing it out didn't work, either. Because the light kept blinking with no game inside, I thought of the switch. There sure isn't much inside these things! The switch isn't doing anything that indicates it is broken. Trying compressed air sounds like a good idea. I'll give that a try, after closing the console up. Question: why would it be the game connection, when the light blinks whether or not there's a game in the console?

Try blowing the dust out of both the system and the games. Purchase one of those air duster cans from a computer store. Open up the door to the system where the games go in and go to town blowing all the dust out. Then do the same to the cartridges.

Why isn’t my Super Nintendo consoles red power light turning on while the ac adapter in plugged into the outlet on the wall ?

I am having the same problem with my super Nintendo console not having the red power light coming on. It could be the ac adapter that is causing your SNES console to not be turning on. You could try a new SNES ac adapter to see if it works or not. If your SNES console still is not coming on with a new ac adapter it maybe be the fact that your console is not working anymore and it would be more cheaper and easier to buy another SNES console than to fix the current one that you have. Lukie Games and DKOldies and East Starland games and JJ games have SNES consoles.

Why does the red light on my nintendo 64 come on for a fraction of a second and then not work

Well if the red light is flickering then it might be a bad ac adapter so you could buy a new ac adapter to see if it works then. Or bad capacitor inside of the console oe or the other. It might be time to buy a new N64 console.

If you don't fell comfortable with fixing it find a place that fixes old consoles or find some one that can fix it for you or just buy a new console

You game is most likely just dirty which doesn't allow it to connect to the console completely. Clean the gold strip on the bottom of the game with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Make sure it is dry before you try it in the system again.
