Well, while out today I traveled into a pawn shop that had a HUGE selection of games. Upon talking to the owner about the Nintendo, he brought up there is a way to repair it. He mentioned the 72-pin cartridge. Well, As soon as I got my wolf butt home, I looked it up, and opened up to play Operation with my NES. After some tedious tinkering, I put it all back together and it works properly.

Here is a link in how to do so.

Click here if you value the life of your Nintendo


but when it spoke about pulling the pins up, I got a little confused.....so I found this on youtube to find exactly where you are supposed to stick the tiny screwdriver/safety pin.

If you become as clueless as I did, CLICK HERE!!

and there you have it!

-facepaw- RedFox.................you horn dog xD

but yeah, I suggest that after doing this, when you insert your games, insert them gently, as well as just use Rubbing Alcohol on the games vs. blowing on them, in turn, this would also help to keep the 72-pin clean.

And you know it! XD

Heh, whenever I can't get games to work, I just lick the end of it, then blow directly into it.

Works 95 percent of the time.

As miffed as I am at the AVGN, I still like his videos, and this one comes to mind when I see this topic: (bad language/obscene humor warning)

Yeah, I like it too, along with the Atari 5200 and the Nintendo Accessories.

"Sega CD!? Sega Sh!t!"

Yeah, blowing on the old NES cartridges and holding down reset was a P.I.T.A.

I personally suspected that never really worked, and neither did those "Cleaning tools/kits".

Remember the alleged "Light Bulb/Lamp Trick" to make your "Light Zapper" gun work again? That never worked either, as discussed by the AVGN.

I think this "72 pin resetting tactic" does work, however....

it does, trust me, I have been using my Nintendo more and more. and hey, if you don't wish to screw with the 72-pin, you can always buy a new one, fairly cheap depending on where you buy it. Like a gaming store up the road from where I live (way up the road), has replacement 72-pins for $5, thinking next time I am in the area I might buy it just to have a back up if pulling the pins up no longer works for my NES
