Author Topic: NES blinking screen(click here please)  (Read 5903 times)

« on: September 09, 2002, 08:02:43 PM »
Sometimes I go to a friends house and play Nintendo, but when I plug in a game it doesnt work and the screen blinks green and black.
That doesnt happen with my NES, it works perfectly.
How does the NES's of everyone in TMK work?

Mine works fine, thanks to the fact that I bought a cleaning kit. They're real cheap, and real simple. It keeps my fragile NES hardware running smooth.

How on earth did A CLEANING KIT work!? I had to go in and FIX the cartridge loader(the cause of all game<>NES connection problems i.e. the blinking screen)to get mine working again.

That's quite common.  Being in a small town sucks, cause we don't even have a vg store!

Umm, hey, well, let's see...
I put the contact cleaner scraper thingy in there and pulled it out and put it back in a few times... Then I poured a little cleaning solution on my little cartridge contact cleaner... then I rubbed it all around on all my cart contacts... and it works fine for a long time, then I need to clean it again, I say about once every few months.

Game stores. Funcoland, Babbage's (I'm not sure there, I've never checked), Game X Change (if you have one there), stores like that. I got mine for like $4.95.

And there's a store here called Game X Change. Don't try to argue. I believe you, you should believe me.

You dont even need an NES cleaning kit to clean an NES! I use a GBA cleaning kit and it works fine.

I actually have a Universal cleaning kit, so it cleans my NES, GBA, N64, and GCN.

Oooouuummmm... the fabled cleaning kit. I remember the item. That one thing seemed to me to be a graham cracker. I bit it.

...or you could just jiggle the cart around. move it from side to side, a little bit higher, little bit lower. it may take a while to get it working if the nes sucks ass, but it should work. if not, you just plain suck.

mecum omnes plangite!



you really dont know, do you??

So you are saying my friends suck, my cousins suck, my uncle and aunt sucks, and my neighbors suck?

smb allstars master, you need to be quiet. However, once or twice before I got my kit, I was able to move the cart into an exact position every time I played and it would work... most of the time.
Hmm... I've never bitten anything because I thought it was a graham cracker... except a graham cracker, that is....
That was a joke.
