    Default Blinking Light Win: Fixing your toaster NES for good (72-pin replacement)

    Hey guys. I just launched a kickstarter for another video game project. It's called the Blinking Light Win. The idea behind the project is to solve the problem with the 72-pin connector on the original NES and replace it with a design that makes it more reliable. It effectively makes it a side-loading top-loader. Check out and feel free to ask any questions.

    I'm certainly interested in this, though my blinking was largely fixed by boiling the ZIF connector.

    This is an interesting project. I'll be watching.

    In the meantime, for the love of videogames, fix this sentence! :: "Installation of the Blinking Light Win isn't also something you shouldn't be afraid of."

    This built into an HDMI modded NES would be amazing.

    Nice project.

    $20. How much is shipping?

    Most pin replacements cost $8 or so with free shipping. Though most put a vice grip on your carts, I did find one seller that has ones which are more gentle and work 9 / 10 times.

    His website is taking payments for these as pre-orders which will be able to start shipping after the kickstarter units have been sent to the backers. He guesses this will be done in April so I'm not sure if anyone got these yet. He does make the Omega Neo Geo MVS and arcade stick though. I have seen some happy customers of those on Facebook gaming groups who posted their pictures of those units.

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]
