    Default Snes cart corrosion

    I have a few games I can't get to work. I've tried cleaning them several times and noticed some green stuff coming off on the rag. I opened up the carts and noticed there was a noticable amount of corrosion on the contacts. Is there any way to get these to work? Any help would be great , thanks alot.

    Isopropyl Alcohol 91% or better, a white rubber eraser and some metal cleaner.

    1) Take Q-Tips, dip them in alcohol and rub them along the contacts a few times getting off anything you can.
    2) Take the white hi-polymer eraser (the ones at art stores because they are soft and not abrasive) and "erase" the contacts, you should see shreds of eraser that are dirty. That means it's working.
    3) Gently apply some metal cleaner over the contacts evenly. Let it sit for 2-3 minutes and buff off gently.
    4) Alcohol them again for good measure.

    Repeat/Rinse if necessary!

    If that doesn't get it off and making them look new, you're SOL.

    HTH,
