    Default get your NES 72pin connector refurbished cheap

    Got a fiddly NES that just doesn't want to work? There are multiple solutions to solving your problem, and if you have the money and time, you can fix it yourself or replace the worn-out 72pin connector. There's also the well-documented fix in the DP Knowledge Database, but if you're not willing to fiddle with it yourself, I've set up a system whereby you can send them to me for refurbishing. Instead of paying me a small amount of money, you can instead include a common cart, demo disc or whatever you feel is equal to the labor involved in refurbishing the 72pin connector (maybe two common 2600 carts or one common Genesis cart). The 72pins you send will be cleaned and their pins will be carefully lifted so that they no longer recede into the slot casing, then the connector will be cleaned again and tested in an NES with ten randomly selected games. The only price you pay is shipping the 72pin and common cart to Ontario, Canada. I think I can manage a turnaround time of one week during the summer. If you're interested, please send me a PM and maybe we can work something out.

    First of all, I want to vouch for this guy as a good trader/seller.

    Second of all, I want to vouch for the method in the Knowledge Base on how to refurbish a 72 pin connector. It works GREAT! Much better than buying a cheap replacement connector.

    Thanks for the comment, Jibbajaba . I've done refurbishing jobs for locals and this is my first time offering the service to DPers so please feel free to take advantage of this offer. This is just a way for me to get the commons I need and help out some people at the same time. (oh, and by the way, this qualifies as a bump )

    I'm interested in this.

    I've got 4 non-working NESes sitting here, and I was going to attempt the fix myself. However if you will do it for demo discs, ect, I'd be rather interested in going that route. I've got a few discs around, and some carts I could part with...would you be willing to do 4 for one person?
