    Default a "different" way to fix NES blink



    looks like a lot of extra work to me, with a severe modification that is not really necessary. I'd stick with a new 72 pin myself.

    That mod looks horrible. Imagine trying to set up that thing, the 'footprint' just got bigger.

    I don't like it either, but in it's defense, I'd bet it's new contacts scheme is very reliable long term, as in it should 'never' need another pin.

    This could pose a problem if you don't solder correctly. Pull and push the cart out and you're liable to break a couple solders and if you're really sloppy, the whole connector could pull right out! Do it right and it'd be fine. But it's still faster and easier to grab an $8 replacement connector than a $2 straight through connector and a couple hours of solder work.
    Another day, another dollar... wake me when it's payday.

    The connectors on the nes mainboard are VERY eas yto solder to. They accept the solder very well . So the soldering part would only take about 20-30 minutes. But without a way to attatch the new connector better you would break or loosen the connections eventually. As anyone with a toploader knows you twist the game a little each time you take it out and I imagine you would do the same with this mod. But it's interesting , I might give it a try as I have some game genies laying around.
