    Default How to fix a Sega Genesis and other classic systems

    Stuck buttons, game freezing (or doesn't start up) -- I've tried cleaning and the usual tactics, but it looks like I'll have to get my hands dirty.

    SNES has the same problem: I can't get games to work without blowing, etc

    N64 has a stuck reset button.

    --------------------------------

    Okay, now here's my actual question: Isn't there some kind of universal game-system repair site? I've done several searches on digital press and found a couple things, but nothing that addresses Genesis or 64 problems (and only mildly addressing SNES).

    So yeah, just wondering if there is such a place on the internet that focuses on repairing NES/SNES/Genesis/64, etc. If there isn't, maybe we should start constructing a repair-all series of threads? Just an idea (although it probably does exist here and I'll feel like an idiot when somone points it out ).

    Wow, somone moved the thread and politely didn't tell me...

    But now that I finally found this fabled Restoration forum I've been hearing about, hurray!

    Thanks for the tips.
