Why won't the screen and red light stopping blinking?

Maybe my NES has finally had its last day of life, but I think it can be fixed some how. When I put in a game and start it up, I get a flashing screen and blinking red light. I have taken apart my NES, cleaned it and moved the connectors closer together. It works occasionally now, but I wanted to know if there was anything else I could do to restore it and hopefully make it more functionally?

Update: Bought a new 72-pin connector from ebay. Will get back to you guys with the results.

Let me know if you have any questions with fixing that connector, it is VERY easy to do and the system will work like a champ. Dont forget to get the bits to take the screws off your games to clean their boards...I use an eraser...works awesome...putting dirty games back in your new pin will only cause it to lead back to your original problem. Glad to help!

Sam: Did it work after you replaced it? I just bought one and it ended up having the blinking red light and trying to decide if I should return it.

I took my NES apart, removed the 72pin part and used a tooth pick and a few drops of whisky to clean each pin, one by one, both top and bottom rows. It did the trick!

Oh, and I cleaned the area where the pins connect in the motherboard, too. Maybe it was that one...

Best method I have found by far is

Step 1. Boiling in water(keeping the connector from touching the sides of the pot) the 72 pin connector for 3-10 mins ( I do 3 mins) remove connector let cool till you can touch,

Step 2. grab a Cart that isn't very important and push it in and out of the connector several times. Put connector back in the water for another 2mins remove let dry( I tap away all the excess water then use a blow dryer.

Step 3. reinstall and do the happy dance. Never had this method fail and the original 72 pin connector is a much better quality the the replacement ones, so avoid replacing at all cost.

As I commented on another one of your answers, please do not blatantly advertise your products on Answers. You provided a good answer by telling the original poster what was wrong with his game cartridge. You are also fine if you tell them that your company sells a kit to fix it. Please put any links to your own repair site on your profile page, and refer users to that rather than advertising your products in your answers.

I think this person's advertising is just fine. It is not "bot-ish" and nintendorepair is even offering some free advice. Cheers to him/her for offering a great service with a personal touch.

It's commonly referred to as "NES Blink Syndrome". Here's a video for fixing Blinky: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yv3A9GlIL...

I have a problem my nes isn't blinking but I can't get the video to fully appear all I'm seeing is the static tv screen when I try and play it any advice would be very beneficial

It plays, try watching it on another browser.

It kept blinking even after I cleaned up the pins. So I took the box apart, removed the 72pin part, gave each pin a horizontal rub with an alcohol-soaked toothpick (incl the motherboard part of the 72pin part) and now it works!

Purhcase a new 72 pin connector!!! You can go on EBAY and purchase one for 7.49, free shipping. I just purchased one last week and replaced one in my old nintendo that would not work at all...now it works perfect. Yes, they can be too tight, but you can take an older game or any game and spray a little bit of wd40 to loosen up the connector until it is good to go. Another great investment are the game screw tools that you can buy on ebay...i think 6 bucks for 2 sizes. Instead of using alcohol, use an ERASER. This works AMAZING. Hope this helped.

My NES went from blinking $^^! to working like a champ. Email me at jomoody09@hotmail.com for any questions on installation or repairs.

Sometime last year a group on kickstarter came out with direct wired repair they call Blinking Light Win, https://www.arcadeworks.net/blw

It replaces the game slot and cart bed on a front loading NES. I replaced mine last week with one. I haven't had any issues with any cart yet. It is 3x's the cost of just replacing with a standard replacement connector.

It can be a little tight in getting a cart out of the game. It feels more like a toploader with the benefit of RCA game hook up.

I called it direct wired because the cart is engaged when you put it in the slot. You no longer press it down to engage.

If I experience any problems with it I will post back here.
