Yeah, then it may actually be missing parts/physically damaged. Your only real option, I think, is to try and find a "for parts or not working" NES and cannibalize the black cartridge mechanism from it. (I'd try ebay for a broken one). The problem with this is the NES is known to work for a long time, that is, the circuit board is rather simple, the ICs and CPU are reliable and so on. I haven't ever really heard of these things breaking down to the point they can't be fixed. They are notorious for having problems running games because of the poor quality ZIF connector and the other problems like 10nes, but these things are a simple fix. Otherwise, it's a very simple and sturdy system, no moving parts, no optical drive etc. Compare vs Sega CD model 1, original model Xbox 360, original model Playstation, and many other consoles with poor reliability/flawed design.

Alternatively, you can try boiling the connector as mentioned, which will make the connection so tight that the games will probably turn on and play even if the cartridge isn't pushed down.

Unfortunately, the original NES had a poorly designed cartridge slot and not much else. So it has a bad reputation for the games never working, blowing on the games and so on. These things are an easy fix though, and if you maintain your system (boil/replace connector every few years) and games (clean them with alcohol) it should last a very long time. Most people don't know this stuff though and thus the reputation.

More relevant info here: http://console5.com/wiki/Improving_NES-001_Reliability

EDIT: It occurred to me to add your NES to your list of consoles, so I did. GL getting it working again. Keep us updated.

I boiled the connector, but that hasn't helped any. The pins are most def out of place, so I will work on lifting them (watched a YT video demonstrating this, doesn't seem hard, just tedious.)

Already cut the pin on the lockout, seems to have worked. That'll save time, just need to fix connector and replace sled. Does the sled assembly lock down by itself, all in the one unit? I'll just buy a replacement sled on eBay if so.

This ole girl was in bad shape. Caked on dirt here and there, the crack in the top, bad cart connector, sled won't stay locked down. Already bought an OEM power adapter, and will need the new sled. Already cleaned the grime from the case, and somewhat corrected the crack in the top. For free tho! thumb.gif

Nice, when you get it working let us know.

It's really unfortunate that it's so messed up.

What games do you have for it so far?

NES is working, always has. Was just dirty and grimey. Pin connector cleaned and all pins lifted, but job was weak, so not perfect. Still having issues with pins touching carts completely.


Free NES, but to fix I will...

Buy good controller -done $8

Buy new AC adapter -done $13 ugh, sucked

Disable lockout chip -done

Buy new sled to it can snap down -soon -$9

Buy new 72pin connector -soon -$8


I don't own any games myself yet, but borrowing the Mario trilogy and Zelda, plus a game genie. smile.gif
