    Default My TG-16 died last week and now my NES dies this week! DAMN!

    I can't believe the bad luck that I'm having lately from a video game standpoint.

    First last week my TurboGrafx-16 dies on me. Something went wrong with the controller input plug on the front of the unit. I thought it would be real easy to get another working Turbo without spending a fortune, but that doesn't seem to be the case.


    And then today, my freaking NES dies!!!!. I can't believe it! I just finally found a copy of Contra for a decent price, and I go home and clean it and then later stick in the machine and my machine starts blinking like crazy. So I try different game carts. They all blink. Then I try blowing on the games. I get a purple screen on the TV. I tried just about everything and I can't get my NES to work.

    I don't know what the deal is, because not too long ago I got a 72 pin connector and installed it, and after that everything worked fine. And I don't really play on it that much that it would already be having problems now.

    This sucks.



    What should I do?

    Now I understand why people pay so much money for a top loader. They simply get sick of dealing with tempermental NES systems.

    True. You could also get a Game Genie and use that to make better contact. That'd be a stop-gap measure though. Personally, I'd pick up a new pin connector. I got one for my old NES and she's good as new.

    If you just need some fresh, functional innards for your consoles, I have some spare TG16's and NES's with ugly cases but perfectly good guts. The NES's have been refurbed & had the lockout chip disabled. Drop me a PM if you're interested.

    Get an NES from FABombjoy. HE's refurbed pins are way better than the new ones.

    I don't know what the deal is, because not too long ago I got a 72 pin connector and installed it, and after that everything worked fine. And I don't really play on it that much that it would already be having problems now.
    I assume you put in a new pin connector correct?

    Read this about the new connectors:

    I'm using FABombjoys method, and it is superior to the new pins in most every way.
