Question about Nintendo NES Console
I put a game in and the system blinks on and off. I get a blue screen then a gray screen. Anything i can do to fix it?
This is an issue with the 72 pin connector in the system. The contacts inside the system start wearing out or corroding and don't make as good of a connection as they used to. There are multiple places online, such as ebay, where you can buy replacement connectors for the system. The actual repair itself is quite simple. There are many places online that tell you how to do the repair and many places that sell the connector usually include some instructions. For a quck fix, adjust the angle that you are pushing the cart in and how hard you are pushing it in. You might be able to get the game to play a few times like this, but it is not as reliable as the above method.
