    Default Replacing Batteries in SNES carts, and NES 72 Pin connectors

    Heya everyone... just thought I would try to get somone else's opinion on how I can go about changing the batteries in SNES game carts... they seem to be attached in some way inside the contact arms.... I just want to know an easy way to change the battery out with a new one

    On the topic of batteries... does anyone know hwere I can get a bulk lot of CR2032 batteries???

    AND Does anyone know where I can purchase a bulk lot of NES 72 pin connectors, I ran out of the ones I had and I would like to just get a large lot of them so that I can fix NESes whenever I come acorss a broken one or whatnot....

    Any help would be great

    Thanks

    I cant help you with the battery thing, but I see lots of 10 or more 72 pin connectors go on ebay on a regular basis.

    Thanks... Ebay is my lsat resort for this kinda stuff.... cause I have so far gotten lots of the connectros and batteries for my own needs, but now I have a bunch of people asking me if i know where to get the batteries for their systems and games... and if i know how to reinstall them, and to fix their blinking toasters.... so I thought I'd get a few extra parts to help me out

    You should read this prior to ordering any kind of 'bulk lot' of 72 pin connectors: http://www.digitpress.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=20849


    Battery replacement has been covered a couple times:

    Removal is the same procedure as here for the SEGACD2 RAM baytery replacement.

    A soldering iron is a good back up to have though. It's pretty easy to tear out a post.

    mizarkgram, you might try asking local retro game stores where they get thier 72-pin connectors (if they even carry them)

    Also..who is that in your avatar?

    Possibility is infinity! You must be satisfied!

    note that snes / nes games who are battery backed up are not standard 2032 batterys they are of a special sort with solder legs on them but you should be able to find them cheap bulk from any electronics retailer like radioshack, mcmelectronics or elfa.(soldering on normal batterys incorrectly and exosing them to unnecessery heat might cause them to either crystalize instantly fully / partal this will cause them to be consumed and start to corrode or even explode så be carefull!)
    Broken? fix it.

    I would ask a local retro video game store, but as I live in the middle of nowhere, witht he closest thing resembling a video game store being the movie rental place, I was hopin to find somewhere online where i could order them in from
